The paranoid parties of the Prairies are having a polling contest. They are seeing who can waste the most money on polls four months before the election. They sure are a bunch of nervous nellies. From the day the united conservatives of Alberta picked that loser Danielle Smith, the NDP’s Rachel Notley has been smiling. That lady is using her comeback face.
And Alberta needs her. It all reminds me of the brief tenure of Joe Clark as prime minister of Canada for six months in 1979 and 80. He trusted Brian Mulroney and ended up playing second banana to Mulroney until the federal conservatives crashed and burned in the rout by the Chrétien liberals in 1993.
I suspect there will be lots of Calgary voters checking behind them to make sure their secret ballot for the NDP candidate remains their secret. Calgary has done it before and can do it again.
The one thing I can guarantee Alberta voters, lie all you want to the pollsters who call or send you an automated call, you can hardly lie to yourself. That screwball libertarian, Danielle Smith, will make lots more mistakes between now and election day in Alberta. She is the only politician to so publicly weep crocodile tears for the unvaccinated in the province. Has she tracked the number of COVID-19 dead?
But it was her Sovereignty Act that said the provincial government does not need to pay attention to federal laws with which it disagrees. This is the capper. You felt sorry for those truckers who misplaced their trucks in Ottawa’s busy streets. How can any province have a premier who has no idea what-so-ever as to the constitution of Canada?
The one thing for sure that Alberta voters know is that only the NDP will do anything concrete to fix the province’s healthcare problems. That is top of mind for Alberta voters as the May 29 vote gets closer..
