Trump Alberta

The win means Kenney can go head to head with Premier Rachel Notley in the legislature before the 2019 provincial election.
Kenney was the driving force behind thus summer’s merger of Alberta’s two centre-right parties, the Progressive Conservatives and the Wildrose

Julie Ali The only good thing about this win is that we don't have Kenney on the national stage making Trump Canada. We just have to deal with Trump Alberta for now.

Flu Family -Friday December 15, 2017

Since I have had the flu for more than a week I thought it would be over soon but nope, I am still sick.
I'm going to see Dr. Collition's nurse on Monday for a check of my throat which is killing me. I can't swallow.
I am also taking younger boy to get his flu shot. Hopefully he will be able to counter all the flu viruses around him with immunization.
It's one thing to yap about not taking the flu shot but to be hit with the illness and be useless for more than a week is enough to wise up a person. In addition I can't be around anyone who is flu free.
My throat feels as if there are bloody stretches of highway being driven over my monster trucks. Advil helps and lots of sleep.
I have eaten one banana in three days.
It's unpleasant.
Hopefully we will avert flu in younger boy and when older boy arrives I will get him to have a flu shot as well.

Without giving any examples of what could be cut from the province’s nearly $30-billion capital plan to 2021, she said “there will be some re-profiling of the capital investment” that would mean future projects are not started or completed as quickly as planned. But the Alberta Premier said “vulnerable” Albertans and working-class families won’t feel the effects of budget restraint. In keeping with a political strategy that sees her working to portray her party as a steady economic hand compared with the United Conservative Party – which is calling for a period of sustained fiscal restraint – the Premier emphasized “we’re going to be very conscious of how it’s felt at the kitchen table.”

With the Alberta economy showing signs of improvement, Premier Rachel Notley says her government has room to focus on reining in its $10-billion-plus deficit – and the belt-tightening will include a pullback in infrastructure spending.
As Albertans look for a specific plan on how the NDP government will balance the books in the next five budgets, Ms. Notley said in a year-end interview that some of the savings needed could come from examining capital projects that are “planned but not committed yet.”

Julie Ali Funny thing is that if the Kenney was to say anything that the Notley is saying Albertans would suck it up right away. It is troubling that Albertans think that Mr. Kenney will save them from economic conditions that are unfortunately going to be permanent. There will have to be a PST. We could simply use the Carbon tax which is a PST by any other name. But nope, the NDP want to use the Carbon tax to help out big oil. So odd. I mean the Notley crew are lambasted for ignoring big oil when they have been providing the industry with whatever it wants. Help with the orphan well program? How about a $235 million loan and a $30 million dollar cushion so the industry doesn't pay for the interest charges? The Notley crew is more in tune with big oil than the PCs ever were but they are getting the flack from Albertans for their subsidy, greenwashing and waste of money to keep the oil and gas industry "innovative". One begins to wonder what the heck is going on in Alberta when Albertans can't see that the NDP are more in the pocket of big oil than the PCs and that really there isn't much difference between the NDP folks and the PCs.
