Jason Kenney’s UCP was given a mandate by Albertans 18 months ago to create jobs, fix the economy and build pipelines.

Nobody will argue with you that he won the election, but what exactly has he been doing?
From April 2019 to just before the pandemic, The UCP had already lost 50,000 jobs, they hadn’t fixed the economy, and not a single pipeline had been build.

Today, the UCP has lost more than 200,000 jobs, they economy has never been more broken, and still no pipeline.
Now what has he been doing?

We now make 4.7 billion dollars less in revenue every year because of a “job creation tax cut” but clearly it hasn’t worked all things considered.
He’s waged a war with Doctors and Nurses, creating an unparalleled level of unconfidence in him during a pandemic.

He’s led the first government in Canada to roll back LGBTQ protective legislation, not a good first to have.
He’s left the municipalities out to dry by adding more responsibilities, and giving less in funding, all while demanding no tax increases.

And not to mention, because of reckless fiscal habits, rural Albertans face an up to 300% increase in taxes this year.
He’s centralizing EMS dispatch to make it more “efficient”. Even ignoring the pleas of Mayors, and councillors saying this save in money will cost lives.

He’s failed to renegotiate collective agreements with doctors and nurses, leaving us vulnerable to strikes.
He sent kids back to school in September unsafely, and today we are seeing unprecedented covid levels, because of bad choices.

He’s made the role of the CMOH a partisan one, and personally I worry for Dr. Hinshaw often.
Now these are just some of the awful things he’s done, we could talk about firing ED Assistants, or spending millions on carbon tax court cases.

We need a new government in Alberta. One that cares, and listens and does what it says it will do. That is what @RachelNotley will do

This evening the UCP has voted to adopt a two tier healthcare model going into the next legislative session.

This weekend the UCP will vote on Policy 11 at their party AGM. Among many bad things, Policy 11 allows:

-The Gradual dismantling of public healthcare to be accelerated
-The Governing Party to endorse a two tier healthcare system
-The Governing Party to place a value on lives Image
The First Sentence of the rationale reads:

Healthcare is the greatest budgetary experience.

Personally I don’t see Healthcare as an expense, but rather as an investment in the lives and livelihoods of Albertans.
A few sentences down it mentions a “hybrid system”, Medicare was founded on the principle that no one person is better than the other.

Albertans believe that no one person deserves better or faster access, and Albertans also believe no one should be left behind.

Alberta Separation is one of the most stupid and misguided ideas out there, here’s why:
1. It would be incredibly hard to accomplish, we would need to elect enough federal MP’s to force a referendum, guess what we don’t have much of a presence in the HoC.
2. We would never get a pipeline built to tidewater again. You think building a pipeline within our country is hard? Just wait until we leave and Canada owes us nothing. (and frankly Canada would probably have lots more lib governments without AB)
