1/ If after reading all the accusations and evidence surrounding @jkenney's illegal activities, you still want to vote for him, you aren't looking out for Alberta's best interests. You're buying into lies, cheating, and deviant behavior at Alberta's cost #ableg #abpoli #yeg
2/ @jkenney has proven time and time again that his interests come before Alberta's. He came here campaigning to be the #pcaa leader while still receiving his MP pay from Ottawa. He's paid others to run suicide campaigns to dirty up his rivals to ensure a win. #ableg #abpoli #yeg
3/ @jkenney promised Albertans that he would stay humble and earn every vote, but we're learned he's done just the opposite. He's cheated, lied, paid people off, ran illegal campaigns, and took illegal donations. #ableg #abpoli #yeg

(Thread) Because events in #Alberta politics happened at such a rapid pace, I decided to use my Facebook timeline to compile all the controversial incidents and scandals involving the #UCP in 2018 - because there was a lot. #ableg #abpoli (1/48)
Methodology: I'm not compiling silly gaffes that went nowhere (such as Jason Kenny's finger bowl comment), incidents like "So & so said something stupid on Facebook five years ago" unless the person became a candidate... #ableg #abpoli (2/48)
...nor am I compiling things that cannot be directly linked to the #UCP, such as the hoodies calling for @JustinTrudeau to be executed or the ongoing death threats to him and @RachelNotley - even though there is likely a link. (3/48)

Just regular folks. Dude on the left. See Q Anon sign. I invite you to google that one if you don’t already know. Fine people these yellow vest protesters. Endorsed by a UCP MLA don’t you know. #ableg
Let's check the yellow vest Facebook site. What do we have there? #Ableg
And another one from the yellow vest Facebook site. @DrewBarnesMLA are you really sure that you should be endorsing this movement? #Ableg

THREAD: 1/x Some context on this short audio. In 1989, San Fransisco passed a quasi civil union ordnance. It was later reversed by voters in a plebiscite (yes, it failed in SAN FRANCISCO!). @jkenney was a 20 yer old student in SF at time. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #UCP #CPC
2/x Societal norms have evolved a great deal since. For example, Liberal stalwart Dianne Feinstein, while SF mayor earlier, vetoed a similar ordnance. Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton both opposed same-sex marriage up until quite recently. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #UCP #CPC
3/x NDP icon Tommy Douglas viewed homosexuality as a "mental illness." In 2005, 29 LIBERAL MPs voted against same-sex marriage. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #UCP #CPC

"Rhodesia n00b" & employee at white supremacist store Fireforce Ventures is exposed by @ricochet_en as current Rebel Media reporter @3conomic #cdnpoli ricochet.media/en/2422/rebel-…
I am shocked -- SHOCKED -- that the media outlet pushing apologia for apartheid South Africa (in the guise of 'white genocide' myths) is also hiring apologists for minority rule in Rhodesia #cdnpoli
I'd love to hear from @3conomic on how being a "Freedom Enthusiast" is compatible with his nostalgia for white minority rule in Southern Africa #cdnpoli

Let's put aside the weak attempts at deflection from the #UCP for a second and look objectively at how this party manages to attract far right/alt right groups. #abpoli /1
It's not secret that Jason Kenney has long been a hardline SoCon. Prior to being elected, he had a long career as a speaker on the shadowy anti-abortion talk circuit. /2
That makes him attractive to hardline religious groups that are generally opposed to LGBTQ rights and women's rights (especially WRT medical access). /3

1. @jkenney and #UCP are supporting SK’s challenge, which argues that fed carbon price can only be constitutional if it applies to every province, incl Alberta, not just those without their own price, like SK and ON. #ableg #abpoli
2. In other words, Kenney isn’t just proposing to waste AB’s $ on lawyers to fight a legal loser: he’s demanding that Ottawa collect carbon charges in Alberta, not just SK & ON. #abpoli
3. I’m not kidding. The fight Kenney wants to wage is to demand Ottawa extend its carbon price collection to Alberta, instead of exempting Alberta from Ottawa’s tax in favour of a made-in-Alberta design that accounts for Alberta’s unique circumstances.

[Thread] With Canada's Conservatives going into a full court press in Alberta, I think it's worth taking a look at what we might expect from a Kenney-led government. #ableg #abpoli /1
The first point to bear in mind here is the fact that we are seeing the same tactics being played out at all levels of government where conservatives are running. /2
In Alberta, we've had Kenney running around making all sorts of dog-whistle politics claims about how "great" he will make Alberta, but he has been surprisingly silent about just what that means in terms of policy. /3

We understand #UCP has concerns over #Bill9 and would like to offer members a new service.

We know that men don't always make the best health choices and not everyone has a wife to guide him. In light of this, we are introducing: #RandomOpinions on #UCPhealth

#abpoli
Our office:
Alberta Life Loving Ladies Interested in Erectile Syndromes (ALLLIES). We want you to know: We are your ALLLIES!

We promise to encourage honking as you go discuss unplanned drooping with your erectile specialist. We also have a Men's Health office!
#bill9 #abpoli
At ALLLIES, we have several volunteers with their own opinions on men's health. They tell us there is a breast cancer link (not backed by the Cancer Society) but they could be right! Better safe than snipped.

It is not too late to leave your junk alone.

Alberta wasn't debt free. Alberta was good at hiding its debt acorns in the wilderness. It was hidden in an infrastructure deficit the Heavy Construction Assocation estimated as high as $16 billion. In the fewest staffed hospital beds per capita in the country... #ableg
..hidden in closed hospital wings, and outside the province with the doctors and nurses who left. In the red on the financial statements of non-profits who were slammed with demand following Ralph's social service cuts... #ableg
... it's in waitlists that hold the names of thousands of people waiting for access to affordable and social housing. In the waitlists for disability services, seniors housing, supported living... #ableg

The #ucp policy process is irrelevant. Parties are not and cannot be bound by party policy if they form gov’t.

Think I’m wrong? Ask the #cpc defenders of the traditional definition of marriage how that policy worked under CPC govts. #ableg
Rather than waste time with it, I’ll propose something here instead.

I love the flat tax. Love it. It’s fair. But....it’s fair for the wrong reasons. It doesn’t benefit those who need it the most.

Alberta has both a revenue & a spending problem. Fix both.
So instead of a flat tax, eliminate all income tax for individuals.

Cut it out. Dead.

Instead, implement a 10% consumption tax. That will level the playing field and stabilize govt revenues.

However, that still impacts the low income far more than the high income.
