1/ Why would a Premier refuse to fire a speechwriter found to have expressed racist views?

#abpoli wants to know. Certainly @abndpcaucus does. But if they stop and think about who the speechwriter is, what his earlier career was, they might come to some conclusions themselves.
2/ A Premier who has swiftly plummeted in popularity and has as many skeletons in mom's basement as @jkenney doesn't want to offend his base.

But let's be clear: we have an imported Premier who fairly recently identified as an Ontario Conservative. He has stocked his staff with
3/ peculiarly unqualified and incompetent communications people, several from other provinces. And they really don't seem to know, or care to know, anything about Albertans.

But there's the speechwriter. And he's been here a long time. Not only that: he was part of the Byfield

Thread on why the @Alberta_UCP actively want to break public healthcare, education, and other services. It's not just about privatization (that's part), it's about them being fundamentally undemocractic. They want an aristocracy, lead by business elites.
2/ The #UCPcorruption are market fundamentalists... it really is a religious cult for them; no amount of evidence will convince them they are wrong, despite the massive failures & inequities of privatized health & education in the US.
3/ They view high cost & inequality as features, not bugs. In their fundamentalist view, people who can’t afford expensive, privatized health & education aren’t worthy, aren’t blessed by God. Markets & $$$ are the means by which God shows his chosen few. Everyone else can suck it

1/ So. The cuts of @AdrianaLaGrange to #abed stop delivery of lessons to kids with special needs and those without internet access.

This is @UCPCaucus fraud. How?

The govt is responsible for delivering education, but it's funded in part by federal transfers and the
2/ locally-collected Education Property Tax.

So these services have been paid for.

@jkenney now refuses to deliver them to those most in need. But he's keeping the money.

So nothing for those kids, but still spending millions on his oil propaganda pals.

That's corrupt.
3/ And I am not using the word "corrupt" as hyperbole. It's literally corrupt to take money and then refuse to deliver required services through firing the people who deliver them.

Every Conservative who objects to tax fraud should be howling for resignations.

And @UCPCaucus

What we've learned today? @jkenney @shandro are #Gaslighting bullies who continue to rob all of #Alberta to feed #UCPcorruption while crying when someone questions their ethics or lack thereof #ableg #abpoli

Oh &
@Albertadoctors want every one to be nice #abhealth
Guess what, MLA letters & petitions aren't stopping the dismantling of this Province.

The only one who can stop it is
Her Honour Lois Mitchell.

Your Honour I'm asking you will you use #RoyalAssent to stand up for democracy & justice?… #ableg #abpoli
So much for nice today, for all those in DMs no I'm not an #ndp staffer.

Here's a little history lesson #AbLeg

My parents were in #healthcare my entire childhood spent in #yqr #sask

My mom was a chapter leader for @SUNnurses in 1988.

#Bill22 4 days. From introduction of the bill to passage of 3rd reading. And it's an omnibus bill, dealing with so many issues. Firing the elections commissioner was a huge one, but so is taking the teacher's pension fund away from the financial manager the teachers chose and 1/4
putting it with AIMCO, which is an arm's-length part of the provincial government. The bill makes changes to FIPPA, the Health Professions Act, the Elections Act. It disestablishes the Alberta Historic Resources Foundation which supports 2/4
museums around Alberta, including the Glenbow Museum. It amends the Whistleblower Protection Act, the Protection for Persons in Care Act, the Post-Secondary Learning Act, and dissolves Alberta Sport Connection which funds and supports about 80 organisations, 3/4

The UCP does NOT understand how devastating removing brand name biologics from the list of covered drugs could be. Let me…
Biological drugs are very expensive. They are genetically engineered antibodies that target specific molecules in our bodies that contribute to a disease process (like cancer, inflammation). They do not always just block the molecule from engaging it’s receptor.
Sometimes they have other actions (like inducing apoptosis/cell death) or activating receptors, or signaling other cells to eat the molecule/cell that the antibody binds to. That means that depending on how the antibody was originally designed, the therapeutic effect is different

1/ Dear Albertans:

If you're beginning to understand the degree of corruption that has taken hold of our provincial government, congratulations.

Don't despair. Those of us who warned you before the election are your allies, not your enemies. We are many, and

2/ there are some simple things you can do to resist the corruption.

First, when a cabinet Minister who has colluded in harming the people in his/her portfolio wants to pay a visit, ask for a clear purpose in writing. Too many visits have been passed off as "research" that
3/ weren't research at all. They were PR exercises. Show them actual research.
Second, refuse the photo op. These Ministers pretend everyone is happy with their corruption. They post an endless stream of self-congratulatory photos with people yo make it look like all is fine.
