Not a single person in the financial world would agree with what Alberta's new Premiere just said about the financial world & the #ClimateCrisis. To say those things while our province is yet again on fire? We're in Fantasy Land now. It's gonna cost us THREAD #GentThreads #abpoli
Last election Alberta bought lies we wanted to hear from a man only too willing to say them. In this latest quote Premiere Kenney is selling a full blown future-blind fantasy, believable only to the bozos. To investors & insurers? No way. Sad. Laughable /1
Imagine saying *that* in the face of *this*. Now imagine the big money folks believing it /2 cbc.ca/radio/thecurre…
"Hey investors! Don't focus on the ENORMOUS BURNING ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM! Look over here! No! OVER HERE!"

Premiere Kenney proves himself a man not even passingly familiar with how the investment world works /3
Oh, it'll fool Albertans. #Election2019 surely proved Albertans are *very* easily fooled. We *need* to be fooled: "Next big oil boom is just around the corner! All we need's a loud guy willing to shout at Ottawa or BC or the climate kids!" It'll cost us /4
But will it fool the money people? The people who's raison d'être is to manage risk and maximize return for shareholders? Utterly, laughably, ridiculously wrong. Fantasyland /5 business.financialpost.com/pmn/press-rele…
Oh, it'll fool Albertans. That's easy enough to do. But the money people? Like say the Insurance Industry? Not in your wildest & wettest /6 insurancebusinessmag.com/ca/news/catast…
Any halfwit like Premiere Kenney could've fooled Albertans last election. Doug Ford could've done it to us just as easily. We *wanted* to be fooled. *Needed* it. But you think they fool the Money People at the banks? Great big irrefutable resounding NO /7 business.financialpost.com/news/economy/b…
Further evidence should you still need it: "Conservatives" are great at Business but manifestly abysmal at selecting leaders & governance. From George Bush to Donald Trump to Doug Ford to Jason Kenney we see it time & time again /8
Probably the biggest con job of the last half century or so. And Alberta? This one's gonna COST us /9
Look no further than Ontario's big "conservative" champion Doug Ford (turns out Ontarians & Albertans are equally easy to fool) who says all sorts of dumb things his followers happily moo along with but the Money People? Yeah, TURNS OUT NOT SO MUCH /10 business.financialpost.com/news/economy/m…
Kenney once said he & Ford think so much alike they "finish each other's sentences." I imagine his trajectory will reflect that & tightly match Ford's but at what cost to our province? What economic damage will he inevitably inflict between now & then? /11 thestar.com/politics/provi…
Given we Albertans are *SO* easy to fool, will we even know who's to blame? Will we just moo along when Kenney changes the focus from his failed promises & abysmal performance to blame Ottawa or BC or #TheClimateKids? I guess we'll see, won't we? /END cnn.com/2019/05/24/wor…
