So, is Alberta winning yet? It doesn't feel like Alberta's winning. I'm glad all these newly unemployed Albertans will have a balanced budget on their dinner tables though.

In order for Alberta to win, it's a 2 step process. We got rid of the provincial commies, that's step one. Step two involves getting rid of the federal commies & da little feminist dictator. That's going to take separation.

Notley salted the economic earth of Alberta. What do you expect from a new government in four months? And what does a balanced budget have to do with creating unemployment?

That sounds like a pretty wimpy answer to how to get the province “winning” again. You get what you wanted: the “commies” are gone. Like dona83, I don’t see much winning yet. Gloating yes, actual success no.

Four months to undo four years of carpet-bombing the economy?

Getting rid of the commies was the first step forward. That in itself will save taxpayers 10's of billions of $$$. That's already a win. The rest will take a while as the tangled web Red Rachel weaved is parsed and dismantled, thread by thread.

After that, separation is the only thing left. Of course, Kenney could take the first steps by declaring a UDI, trading in the Queen's Horsemen for a provincial police force (not these goofy-assed sheriff idiots), collecting GST ourselves & then forwarding it to Prinz Dummkopf and developing the Alberta Pension Plan, among others.

Separation. That’s your ultimate end game. Clearly you haven’t thought this through. We’d still have no pipeline to tide water and no way to get one either. That’s some insightful thinking.

You have no pipeline now, thanks to Notley's dithering. Why would not having one as a separate country be worse?

On the contrary, a lot of thought has gone into this.

Any east-west/west-east freight movement across our border, whether by air, rail or highway, immediately gets the crap taxed out of it. Loads are inspected minutely to make sure they conform to our regulations. I can see these inspections taking days. I expect that suddenly, the bastards are going to be amenable to a pipeline. If not, we'll run one stateside and the refineries that currently process our oil and communities that use our natural gas can all GF'd. Wanna see the Lower Mainland come onside in a hurry? Turn their natural gas tap off. Then both the eastern and the western bastards can freeze in the dark.

And, and, not only no more Laurentian Elite dictating terms & conditions which are entirely unacceptable to western Canadians, but no more unfairly calculated transfer payments to provinces who refuse to develop their own resources and are using Alberta taxpayers as their own personal milch cow.

You just have to look beyond your nose, Freddie.

A lot of prog Albertans don't even want the oil and gas industry to succeed.
