Reading news from Alberta makes you wonder just where the current premier gets her daily dose of news. Being a news junky myself, I seriously worry about Danielle Smith’s sources of information. If she continues to spout opinions without reference to where those ideas are coming from, she is going to end up bankrupting the province to pay her legal fees.
A good example is her recent diatribes against the World Economic Forum. Not only is her opinion of the organization so obviously based on ignorance but she is lucky the organization obviously does not give a damn what she thinks. Keep it up though, and they might.
But I prefer to wait until she decides that Alberta can ignore the recent federal gun law changes. Good luck fighting that one lady.
She keeps talking the talk but fighting the feds at the Supreme Court of Canada would obviously cost Alberta more than the federal government. That is home turf to the fed’s lawyers.
I guess a large part of the premier’s problem is that the major newspapers in Alberta are owned by the Postmedia chain. It is, in turn, owned by Americans who had their roots in the infamous National Inquirer. The American publications are under the umbrella of the former American Media company that has had a variety of names over the years possibly caused by law suits and bankruptcies. Just how Paul Godfrey got that bunch of American republicans involved in funding a group of Canadian newspapers, I cannot fathom. All I know is that, in the U.S., they are proud supporters of Mr. Trump and his sorry republicans.
I would trust the opinions of fellow blogger David Climenhaga, who writes on Alberta’s lack of political sense, before trusting any opinions from Postmedia.
Though I must admit, I am a bit disappointed not to have premier Jason Kenney to kick around anymore.
