As opposed to, say, not mentioning once in your campaign an issue that will definitely not get you elected?

Like, say, Red Rachel & her carbon tax?

Which is worse, Freddie? A lie of omission or an adjustment to your policy?

I don't recall him saying he would do so immediately. Do you have a quote on that, Freddie?

Hello, Bigot.

Earlier you were fine with "People say and mis-speak a lot of things".

And, just as I explicitly pointed out, someone from the right says something & it's yuk-worthy?

Hypocrite...

Kenney is a politician. If his lips were moving chance are really good he was lying. No surprise.

Then we have Rachel's lies about the carbon tax. She said not a word during the campaign then dropped it on Albertans with zero consultations. Nope not even a Shannon Phillips job where they claimed they were listening but sent the RCMP as proxies.

IOW Rachel was lying even when her lips were not moving!

Most politicians are prone to use what I call weasel words. Of course Kenney is no exception and the wording is of course crucial.

He has said he would sign Bill B-12 into law, and appears to have done so. As to whether he takes it any further depends on the next move from Horgan.

Quote:
Kenney promised repeatedly during the election that, should the UCP win, his cabinet would proclaim Bill 12 “within one hour” of being sworn in.

Neither Kenney nor his Energy Minister Sonya Savage would comment Tuesday on whether that was still the plan, but the premier confirmed in an op-ed penned originally for the Vancouver Sun (now running in the Journal and Calgary Herald) that his cabinet had charged ahead.

“We did not proclaim this law to reduce energy shipments to B.C. but to have the power to protect Alberta’s ability to get full value for our resources should circumstances require,” Kenney wrote.

“By proclaiming this law, we are showing that we are serious about protecting Canada’s vital economic interests. This does not mean energy shipments will immediately be reduced but that our government will now have the ability to actually use the law should circumstances require.”

Following either current events or the thread in which he's posting are not two of his strong suits.

As he gears up for the most important political battle of a generation:
In the short time since he has been elected, there has been no shortage of voices saying that Kenney will not be able to get Alberta’s oil and gas to international markets because of the political realities in Vancouver and Montreal and Ottawa and Paris and the UN, etc.

But that’s the current ground, upon which not even the super progressive Rachel Notley could get a pipeline built. What Kenney will do, as he always does, is to shift the terrain.
Hmmm...

Some of the things mentioned in the article are up for debate. That said...

Comments salient.
