You certainly cannot say the same about her cabinet minister Shannon Phillips. She who sent the RCMP in her stead to avoid listening to local opposition to the Castle Wilderness Area scam.

Exactly what I was thinking of. No government representatives sent, so no earplugs required!

Yep. I missed that one in my post.

Public inquiry into U.S.-funded attack on Alberta is vital

Quote:
For at least the past 10 years — it’s actually more like 20 — Alberta’s oil and gas industry has had a target on its back that it has done little to remove.

Lies and smears have been spread around the world about how damaging Alberta’s oilsands are to the existence of our planet. The response over all of those years by the Alberta government and, worse yet, the energy industry? Silence. Crickets. A veritable black hole of a response. Actually, silence would have been preferable.

Many major oil players in Alberta actually helped fund the smears against them by sending tens of thousands of dollars annually to the likes of the David Suzuki Foundation, the Pembina Institute and even Greenpeace, which has actually argued in court documents that using lies to further its agenda while damaging legitimate businesses should be allowed under its right to freedom of expression.

Kenney has vowed to bring in a law that bans foreign money from Alberta politics, something that should be implemented across the country.
Good!

Someone – finally – has been paying attention.
The Government of Alberta has advised, thus far informally, that it will not comply with Manson’s Law, the Court Ruling which permits private ownership of legislation. The Government has advised that a formal declaration on the matter will be released this summer. Watch for it folks, this is big.
Prog heads exploding...

A couple notes on opposition to the UCP's "Chicago Principles" for free speech on university campuses.

Here an NDP critic is quoted as saying the UCP's move is "pandering to the hate groups and anti-choice groups".
https://twitter.com/abndpcaucus/stat...09348490489857

The critic conflates hate groups and anti-abortion groups. They want to ban anti-abortion groups from speaking as they would with hate groups?

Another NDP critic refers to "an intentional move to broaden polices to invite in racists, homophobes, and misogynists"
https://twitter.com/KathleenGanley/s...80202755887104

More conflating. Given how freely progressives dish out the labels racist, homophobe, and misogynist, it sounds like they're eager to limit speech across a wide range of political opinion, and not just "hate".

Criticize racial quotas for jobs? Racist. Criticize a Pride parade policy? Homophobe. Criticize feminist theory? Misogynist. All some form of "hate" to the NDP.

I don't doubt that getting broad buy-in on banning "hate" was always intended to move the dial this far. I never supported a separate legal treatment for so-called hate.

Ditto here. Now we're seeing legislation attempts that would jail those who support a boycott of Israeli settler made products. They must be anti-semitic since they oppose the concentration camps in the West Bank and Gaza. Absolutely obscene.

Alberta MLAs take 5% Pay Cut

https://calgaryherald.com/news/polit...f-a5fd5749a8ae

Way past time and pathetically inadequate given the amount of damage past governments have inflicted on the province. However it is good to see that they brought travel allowances in line with the public sector.

Quote:
The committee also voted Tuesday to kill the fuel credit card program for MLAs, remove the ability to claim for fuel, maintenance and car washes, and bring politician mileage to the same per-kilometre rate as the public service.
Now if we can just get them to accept CPP and OAS as their only form of public pension, just like the rest of us.
