#Ableg News 🧵

12. Alberta’s counselling therapists are FURIOUS after Kenney cancelled his decision to create a new regulatory body

Therapists wanted a regulatory body to uphold high standards & discipline bad members

No reason was given😉
(Welcome to Alberta @EmergoRecovery)
#Ableg News 🧵

13. On Wednesday night. Kenney abruptly canceled a press conference to take an urgent call with Trudeau about the looming Omicron threat

Despite this, Kenney STILL held his “Premier’s Holiday Reception” with mostly unmasked guests and 0 social distancing.
#Ableg News 🧵

14. The day after his emergency call with Trudeau re: Omicron, Kenney LOOSENED restrictions on gathering; the ONLY province in Canada to do so.

#Ableg The man in this photo is Jason Kenney’s brother Dave

✅- Was sued for operating an unlicensed conversation therapy clinic in BC
✅- Just closed his clinic in Ontario
✅- Secretly moved back to Alberta

I wonder why Jason cancelled regulating therapists in Alberta? Image
I’ll give you a hint #Ableg:

Expect Jason Kenney to invoke the notwithstanding clause to opt Alberta out of the federal laws banning conversation therapy in Alberta

Expect taxpayers to pay for it

The ONLY thing worse than one Oakville Kenney destroying Alberta is two of them
*conversion therapy of course!

Thank you @plasercalgary!

Honesty Alberta…I don’t know what to say. This week felt like the WORST week under the @UCPCaucus:

- UCP Signalling HUGE Cuts (Story #1)
- Bill 85 Undermining Democracy (#14-16)
- LaGrange Attacks Alberta Teachers (17-20)

Let’s look at 20 Bad News Stories
#Ableg News 🧵

1. A new budget survey from the UCP seems to be preparing Albertans for cuts and health care premiums.

You must chose something major to cut, introduce health care premiums or new user fees

Life is going to get more expensive for Albertans (@tony_clark)
#Ableg News 🧵

🚨 New Poll Alert 🚨

2. Only 29% of Albertans “respect Jason Kenney”, 53% say Alberta’s economy is future ready

3. In response to this poll, UCP MLA @doug_schweitzer said “Alberta has Swagger”…to which only 15% of Albertans actually supported.

Here’s 20 bad news stories this week! Enjoy!
#Ableg News 🧵

1. It was discovered that one of the secret schools piloting LaGrange’s much maligned curriculum is in La Crete, Alberta.

Sadly, documents show even La Crete teacher’s won’t fully implement it due to disagreeing with the content.

No response from LaGrange 😣
#Ableg News 🧵


2. Yikes! Despite desperately pushing his Alberta Police Force, a poll shows only 9% of Albertans actually support it!

3. Local leaders reveal Kenney’s police sees Alberta losing $200 million in federal funding and the transition will cost us $366 million!

This week was the WORST!!!

✅ A new Alberta-Sask Covid Variant (Story 1)
✅ The @UCPCaucus promoting Nazis in our curriculum (Story 5)
✅ The NDP leading new polls! (Story 14)

Altogether: It’s been a BAD week for the @UCPCaucus!

2. 🎊 New @StatCan_eng data is out: Alberta lost 9,100 net jobs in October 2021 (and over 16,000 less women employed)!

The REAL UCP Alberta Advantage! ImageImage
#Ableg News 🧵


3. During Kenney’s “We Got Amazon Cloud Service”, he claimed we’d IMMEDIATELY land 1,000 new jobs!

Sadly, Amazon ONLY confirmed 409 direct jobs … by the year 2037…and many of those are temporary!!

The REAL UCP Advantage! Image
