1. Be VERY clear, Jason Kenney is lying through his teeth about this.

Withdrawing from the Canada Pension Plan would cost Alberta $133 Billion.…

2. That’s TRIPLE the current provincial debt. Alberta would go from having the lowest debt to among the highest.

Why so much? Because doing so requires approval of 2/3 of the provinces. #ableg #abpoli #alberta #calgary #edmonton #yyc #yeg #yql
3. The cost to those provinces of losing AB’s younger population to the remaining CPP fund is $133B.

Kenney hid this report. He didn’t want it out. He doesn’t like what it says because it shows how dangerous his plan is. #ableg #abpoli #alberta #calgary #edmonton #yyc #yeg #yql

The UCP's Fair Deal report does nothing to address the real and urgent priorities of Albertans worried about jobs and the economic future of their families.

It is nothing more than a cynical, political distraction from Jason Kenney's failure to make progress on jobs, the economy, or pipelines.
Much of what is contained in the UCP report is far beyond this government’s authority or jurisdiction. But having worked in Ottawa for decades, Kenney would know that.

Rundle College in #YYC. Where I know there are excellent educators doing amazing things. Tuition begins at ~$13K for KG and up to $18K for Gr. 12. The #UCP would like more public dollars to go to Rundle as part of their voucher system. Fair? #ableg
Edge school in #YYC. Clearly a leader in sports. School size is 300, avg of 16-20 per class. Gr 4-6 start at $17K, and 7-12 are $18K. More public dollars to fund schools like this one in the #UCP voucher system being proposed. Fair?
Lets head to Okotoks. Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (awesome STEAM programs!), where tuition paid w/o tuition insurance is non-refundable. KG ~ $16K, Gr.12 at $23K. They also have 8 avenues for scholarship funding for tuition. Should more public money end up here??

#Strathmore Town Council meeting tonight: Amending land-use bylaw to allow a crematorium.
Being debated with rigour.
Air quality is a concern. Not an AB Health issue but AB Environment. Environment Minister’s office hasn’t responded to @Strathmore_Town’s questions yet.
Councillor Montgomery asks about carbon monoxide emissions.
Presenter says most in-depth study shows particulates don’t stay in the area.

I’m going to take a moment to step away from my campaign, and my partisanship, and talk as a queer person and a human. I want to address the disrespectful comments overheard by a few folks in the audience last night at the Chamber of Commerce forum. #yql #cndpoli #elxn43
I’m tired of the existence of my community being used as a talking point to gain political capital. I’m tired of our existence being mocked and derided. I’m tired of being asked to defend the lived experience of myself and those I love.
We exist. We love. We build families, run businesses, pay taxes and worry about our kids.

We. Exist.

Talking in circles about whether or not someone believes we do or do not exist or should have basic rights isn’t just boring, it’s unproductive.

Oh my goodness! This a complete fabrication! Hyggen is making stuff up now.

“There was no communication at a city level on this. The province – the previous government put this in there and told us more or less ‘deal with it.’ And as far as us having any communication with our constituents and with those citizens of Lethbridge, that did not happen.”
Here’s why this is nothing but a pack of lies:

1. The City was one of the 16 stakeholder groups on the Executive Leaders Coalition on Opioid Use, which started in November 2016.

Incredibly disappointed to hear such ignorant rhetoric from @jkenney on harm reduction & supervised consumption sites in #yql:… #ableg
As noted in the article, Kenney's comments run counter to #yql law enforcement, front line workers & local gov't, all of whom support the innovative, life-saving initiative.… #ableg
Before moving forward, the City of Lethbridge conducted research, visiting SCS sites in Europe. Sites in #yql will include addictions counselling, harm reduction supply distribution, nursing services. #ableg
