I see him as PM soon.
More than a few of us believe this is his end game. The ideal scenario for Kenney, would see Scheer somehow fumbling an absolutely golden opportunity and Truedope squeaking back in with a minority. Scheer would be axed and Kenney fresh off this big win would almost certainly step in. Then a year or so later the conmen could force an election and Kenney would indeed win the grand booby prize.

PREMIER-DESIGNATE SAYS THE FEDERAL CARBON TAX ISN’T AS BAD AS THE PROVINCIAL ONE

Quote:
An interesting comment from Premier-designate Jason Kenney concerning the carbon tax. Part of his campaign was to get rid of the provincial one. But as we know, if that one is sent packing, it will be replaced by the federal one. He justified that over the weekend in an interview with CTV:
“The Alberta NDP carbon tax is worse than the federal Liberal carbon tax from a taxpayer’s point of view. It’s one-third higher. It has much lower levels of rebate. And so, from a consumer point of view, while we oppose the federal carbon tax, it’s less bad than the Alberta NDP one.”
An interesting view, since with no provincial carbon tax, Albertans would not receive a carbon tax rebate either. Give your head a shake, Jason.

That's not true. Those provinces willing to stand against a provincial tax are still receiving rebates from the federal program.

Wrong again Freddie. All provinces citizens can claim their federal carbon tax rebate on their income tax. Regina Leader-Post story confirms it:

Once again, you're concerned about the nickels & dimes from the carbon tax rebate, all the while Red Rachel's profligate spending has cost you thousands of $$$.

Alberta's new energy minister is Sonya Savage:

Her most recent position was senior director of policy and regulatory affairs at the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association where she handled files on regulatory reform, Indigenous reconciliation, legal, environment and climate change.
What's wrong with this new government? Did they remove "anti-pipeline activist" from the job requirements?

Gosh. It makes you wonder if he said it just to get elected.

Jason Kenney says at this time, the United Conservative Party will not be using legislation to stop sending oil to B.C.

Kenney, who was sworn in Tuesday, had promised during his campaign he'd turn the taps off to B.C.

CALGARY (NEWS 1130) – Despite promises to immediately proclaim legislation to “turn off the taps” to B.C., Alberta’s new premier says his government will pursue a more diplomatic route first.

Jason Kenney was sworn in Tuesday morning. The United Conservative leader had promised repeatedly during his campaign that if he was elected he would stop sending oil to B.C. for the west coast province’s opposition to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. The controversial project has strained the relationship between the two provinces for months.

Before going into his first cabinet meeting, Kenney refused to confirm if Bill 12, the turn off the taps legislation, was on the agenda.....
