Fine. Let's see 'em walk the walk: this winter they can prove their worthiness by living entirely off the grid. And none of this halfway BS, either. You either commit to it, in which case there'll be a helluva lot fewer of the idiots come spring, or you don't & you STFU. No changing your mind a few hours into the first cold snap.

Should a cold snap emerge that creates the same situation as happened in Rhode Island earlier this year, we could quite easily see a catastrophe of such monumental significance that it might actually break through the energy-ignorance wall of climate activists. There appears to be no other way to get them to learn other than to have a great number of people die.

They will blame people with commmon sense for faling to provide them with sun heat and windmill power at crippling prices. This is religion we're talking. The new Luddites.

Well that’s not true of this prog Albertan. You make a lot of assumptions.

Alberta: The Right Once Again Has to Clean Up the Fiscal Mess Wrought by the Left

Quote:
Having personally lived through two disastrous NDP governments in B.C., 1972-75 and 1991-2001, my heart pours out to our neigbours in Alberta, who suffered through the disastrous financial ruin of Rachel Notley’s incompetent reign. Being a Devout Leftist, she of course has no shame and accepts no responsibility for the enormous damage she has done.

But people who … you know … are responsible and understand math … have a quite different opinion:
Not only a funding freeze but serious spending cuts. Obviously, drastic times require drastic measures. Finally.

Alberta governments in the last couple of decades spent when times were good and kept spending when times were not so good. As a result, this province, which was once debt-free, built up the most expensive bureaucracy per capita in the country on the back of a climbing deficit and debt.

As the panel points out, if per capita spending matched the average spending in Canada’s three largest provinces, we would not have a deficit.

However, for all the high-priced services, service delivery was no better and often worse than in other provinces. In other words, the provincial government’s performance is mediocre, at best, with the health-care system singled out for improvement.

Pleasing Your Enemies Does Not Turn Them Into Friends

Quote:
Jason Kenney takes no prisoners.
Honestly, it can’t be easy being the long-time head of Amnesty International Canada (AI), stuck in annoyingly free and peaceful Canada, having to work yourself up into high dudgeon to denounce a democratically-elected government peacefully standing up for its citizens.

On the other hand, your insistence that the burning human rights threat in Canada right now is – to use your description – the “establishment of an energy ‘war room’ devoted to defending the oil and gas industry in Alberta and a public inquiry into the foreign funding of groups who oppose or criticize energy developments in the province” can hardly pass unchallenged. Relentless misinformed attacks against our oil and gas industry have cost us thousands of jobs and hurt families from every region of our province. The cost in investment and jobs has been incalculable. Our government won the largest democratic mandate in Alberta history in part on a promise to stand up to those attacks. I will not apologize for keeping that promise.

Inquiry into foreign funding of anti-Alberta energy campaigns could shake up enviro charities

Quote:
In a drive-by take-down editorial this past weekend, the Globe and Mail blasted Alberta’s public inquiry into foreign funding of anti-Alberta energy campaigns. The editorial had few facts on hand to support its claims, but it let loose with a series of cheap shots, glib commentary and a conclusion that fell back on an ancient tribal chant: “For Alberta to create a public inquiry to go after critics is a McCarthyesque misuse of power.”

Ah, McCarthyism, the old ideological cushion of the lazy lefty — although most Canadians under the age of 50 would have to Google it.

Frankly, I find the concept of this so-called "Alberta Energy War Room" a joke. We all know what the problem is. There are any number of solid solutions floating around. To the top two in the comment quoted below, add in "Turn off the Trans Canada pipeline" and "Build the Alaska Pipeline". There. That was easy. Cheque, please?

Now, find someone with the cajones to apply them...

Alberta’s Energy War Room Gets Revved Up

Quote:
It will soon be up & running! Bravo Premier Kenney!
From the comments:

Quote:
I notice all the trains are still running on schedule with their oil cars.
All the pipelines to BC are still flowing.
No protestors are in jail.
No collection notices have been sent to people who accepted foreign donations.
Government hasn’t lost any employees.
Government salaries haven’t been cut.
No programs cut.
No grants cut.
Still have wind energy in Alberta.
Still have no nuclear power in Alberta.
Yeppers.

Kenney's an idiot.

Liberals Hate You

Quote:
It’s really not that complicated.
Sad to see what’s happened to the once great Liberal Party.

Justin Trudeau’s top advisor thinks a working guy wearing a mandated safety vest is a Nazi dog whistle.

A world away from Jean Chrétien praising the dignity of work. https://t.co/8DAJ4vsUYJ

The singular thing about the Liberal party that was ever great is the steaming pile they leave in the midst of our country...

The Alberta Budget
https://www.alberta.ca/budget.aspx

I hope Kenney implements the planned cuts/hikes or more. I had expected more of a Ford-type cop out, so this is a pleasant surprise. It will probably cost me a lot, but it's good for the province as a whole.
