Jason Kenney’s war room is an expensive failure that hasn’t created anything but ridicule. While we’re paying for higher taxes, school fees, and tuition, the UCP is throwing away $30M/year. Here are the Top Nine reasons the UCP war room should be scrapped. (THREAD) #ableg
1) They can't get the basics right. The war room’s most well-known accomplishment to date is copying the logo of a US software company, an error could have been easily avoided with a simple Google reverse image search at no cost. #ableg calgaryherald.com/news/politics/…
2) Then it was found that their replacement logo is a modification of yet ANOTHER software company’s logo, one which is now considering legal action. Again, this could have been discovered in seconds, for free. Does anyone run this place? #ableg calgaryherald.com/news/local-new…
3) The war room is intimidating those with opinions they don’t like. Their feud with the Medicine Hat News has made the writer an “instant resistance hero”, according to Don Braid. It was a good article describing why the war room isn't working. #ableg calgaryherald.com/opinion/column…
4) When the war room attempted to intimidate a school district for hosting an environmental speaker, it generated national news stories about the attempt. #ableg nationalpost.com/news/canada/in…
5) A war room staffer impersonated a reporter to interview a BC restaurant industry advocate, who then denounced the War Room and voiced their opposition to TMX in national media when they learned the truth. This is not helpful… #ableg theglobeandmail.com/canada/alberta…
6) As a result, the Canadian Association of Journalists condemned the war room staff for impersonating journalists. CAJ called it “Orwellian” and asked the government to stop pretending to be news. #ableg cbc.ca/news/canada/ca…
7) On YouTube, war room videos were so overwhelmingly downvoted they had to turn off the counter and have now seemingly abandoned the platform entirely. #ableg youtube.com/channel/UC71zR…
8) The war room still has a smaller social media audience than the accounts set up to parody it. If there is a such a thing as a $30-million-dollar tweet, the UCP clearly hasn’t written it. #ableg twitter.com/ABWarRoom
9) Finally, the Terms of Use for this so-called “rapid-response unit” correcting "misinformation", states its content “may be out of date at any given time“ and "we do not warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of this information.” Huh? #ableg canadianenergycentre.ca/terms-of-use/
To sum, $30M for stolen logos and fake reporters who can’t promise accurate or up to date information and who only generate embarrassing headlines. This isn't how you tell Alberta's story. Albertans want their money back. Tell Jason Kenney to scrap the war room. #ableg
