A little surprising. I figured since his lips were moving when he said it, Kenney was lying, he is after all a harpoon politician and learned from the master. Still it looks like he intends to follow through.

No mention if the July rebates will also be aborted. Interesting times. I don't foresee any prices coming down as a result, so those on the low end of the financial ladder will of course be hurt the most.

What a novel idea! Imagine having a farmer as Agricultural Minister.

If the UCP does nothing else this term, they have done one thing very right by restoring the secret ballot to any employee vote to certify a union in the province.

This removes the threats and intimidation unions use to bully employees into forming a union. Best thing ever against forced unionism, an all too common tactic used by union thugs.

Quote:
Alberta's Bill 2 will restore mandatory secret ballot for all union certification votes, and return to a 90-day period (down from six months) for unions to provide evidence of employee support for certification.

The government will also establish a program by Oct. 1 to provide “support and assistance” to unionized employees for them to better understand and exercise their rights under the labour relations code.

Changes affecting unions would take effect when the bill receives royal assent or when regulations are completed.

With optimism in the Alberta economy booming, an article from the Beaverton is all you got? You should be happy for the province!

Wasn't too long ago Freddie was vehemently denying that his memes had zero correlation to reality.

Obviously he's forgotten that little shnit fit.

However it does have my wondering how the Feds are going to collect their Trudeau Tax on all the CO2 that wildfire is generating. Thankfully since Kenney abolished the Alberta version Alberta taxpayers will not be footing the cost of trying to collect that tax.

OOPS another meme firmly based in fantasy. For those too dumb to figure it out, Kenney points out the obvious:
https://calgaryherald.com/news/local...st-fire-threat
Quote:
“They’ve had a carbon tax in British Columbia for 10 years. It hasn’t made a difference to the pattern of forest fires there … or in Alberta. And we’ve always had forest fires. We always will,” Kenney said Friday after a luncheon speech to a Calgary business audience.
More specifically we have huge tracts of something commonly called 'Fire Pine'. This tree grows as thick as grass in the aftermath of a forest fire. In fact it depends on fire to release its seeds. After 40 to 50 years the Fire Pine are mature, pine bark beetles kill off huge swaths of them and the next stage in the cycle is, you should have guessed it by now, a forest fire.

Yeah leopards never change their spots. Just like Freddie never learns. He's still swimmin in the shitload of debt Rachel left behind with a closepin on his nose.

Opinion: Two-tier minimum wage will cost older workers their jobs

CALGARY HERALD
Updated: June 7, 2019

Premier Jason Kenney’s cavalier approach to the minimum wage has led to one of Bill 2’s most regressive changes in a piece of legislation filled with them.

By lowering the minimum wage to $13 from $15 for an estimated 35,000 workers aged 13-17 — for the first 28 hours per week when school is in session and for all hours worked during the summer — the UCP has kept one of its most controversial election promises while facilitating the increased exploitation of young workers for the sake of higher private profits.

This isn’t the first time a conservative government has implemented an age-based minimum wage differential in Alberta. We had one in the 1990s, called a “training. wage,” that allowed employers to pay 50 cents less per hour to those under 18.

The Klein government, however, nixed its unequal youth wage in 1998....

Good move! There needs to be a premium to hiring younger workers that Notley's regressive policies removed.
