As UCP tries to gaslight all of us about how ‘democratic’ their ‘referendums’ will be, here’s some food for thought. #ableg
Bill 26 would allow Kenney’s cabinet to determine which issues can go to referendum, how the question is worded, and how, where, and when they are to be held, including during and to decide whether the referendums are binding or non-binding. #ableg
Here’s a recent ‘referendum’ #ableg…
We already know that UCP throws out survey responses they don’t like & that they conceal information from voters, like the report on the Alberta Heritage Savings Trust Fund that was legally required to be made public on June 30 and was expected to reveal more about AIMCo. #ableg
We also know they are under RCMP investigation for voter id theft, fraud and using VPNs in their leadership election. They got rid of the election commissioner investigating them. Guess who also wants to get rid of the RCMP? #ableg
If, after they skew the questions and voting conditions for a ‘referendum’, how will we ever know if everyone’s votes counted? Or if anything shady went on during the vote? Or, they can just say it’s ‘non-binding’. #ableg
Next time they quote the dictionary definition of democracy & talk about how NDP is against it, consider the chances that there will be anything honestly democratic about their referendums, or whether they are likely to have predetermined outcomes like all of their panels? #ableg
