It is not just who’s holier than thou in Alberta. It is who is further in commitment to the right-wing loonies. I was inclined to give up on my high regard for Alberta when Jason Kenney put on his fat-boy jeans and ten-gallon hat, bought a truck, drove west and led Alberta to the promised land of the united conservative party.
Things went well until they replaced poor Jason with that bat-crazy Danielle Smith. Now they have me crying over Alberta instead of laughing. They must be promising early release from asylums to those people who think that Danielle Smith is not far enough to the right for them. And, to make matters worse, she has to break off her battles with Ottawa to defend herself.
Can you imagine, there are people in poor little land-locked Alberta who think Danielle should make good on her promise to take Alberta away from those tax-happy bastards in Ottawa? The other day, one of the loonie toons was quoted in the news media as saying that Toronto is “a festering cancerous wound on the otherwise beautiful nation of Canada.”
Hey asshole, that is my Toronto you are talking about there.
Since that person does not appear to be elected to anything in Alberta, I will put the comment down to general ignorance and the limitations of the Alberta education system. I am not sure if they have provided students with any new school texts since the time of ‘Bible Bill’ Aberhart.
I am waiting for Danielle to cost out her promise to fire the RCMP and create a provincial police system. Just wait until the good citizens of Alberta find out how much that will cost! And do they realize the limitations of a much smaller pension fund than the Canada Pension Plan?
Can you just imagine an Alberta pension fund, based on bitumen extraction of the tar sands at a time of the declining use of fossil fuels?
Alberta desperately needs some politicians who can see something of the future. The province cannot continue to put the blinders on.
