#Ableg News🧵

It you didn’t sleep this week…I’m there! Some REALLY bad @UCPCaucus kept me awake:

😡: Kenney Uses & Defends Racism (Story #4)
🏥: More Rural Hospitals Close (#6)
😞: Alberta OD Deaths Break Records (#8)

Let’s look at XX Bad News Stories:

(📸 @Isuckatpicking )
#Ableg News 🧵


1. 2-hours after Kenney told Albertans how serious Omicron is and to avoid gathering, 200+ UCP Members and MLAs secretly held a private party in #YEG!🍺

2. Because of online backlash, a huge UCP Party in #YYC the next day was cancelled 😞
#Ableg News 🧵

3. Despite knowing Omicron’s threat for WEEKS, the UCP only announced a new Covid19 booster program (18+) Tuesday

As they didn’t advise pharmacies in advance, it created a MASSIVE mess with appointments, leading to vaccine shortages and hundreds of cancellations
#Ableg News 🧵

4.😡 In an interview with Rick Bell, Kenney laughed about variants saying “Who knows what the next variant is…what’s the next bat soup thing out of Wuhan?

5. Kenney’s staff defended him saying he CAN’T be anti-Asian because he ate Chinese Food 2X this year! 😬
#Ableg News 🧵

6. Due to low staffing under Kenney, 3 northern Alberta towns won't have doctors on-site in their community's emergency departments for prolonged periods over the next few weeks: Swan Hills, Barrhead, and McLellan are in trouble!

More on this (Next Story…)
#Ableg News 🧵

7. Staffing is so bad all over Alberta under Kenney that the UCP government reversed AHS rules around vaccination mandates for front line health workers.

Unvaccinated AHS staff can now work with vulnerable patients providing they have a clean test every 2-days 🤦🏻‍♂️
#Ableg News 🧵

😞 Devastating News

8. A new report revealed 1,370 Albertans died of a drug poisoning between January and October 2021, making it the deadliest year on record

On average 4.5 Albertans are dying from an OD each day

One UCP MLA had a thought on this (next story)
#Ableg News 🧵

9. 🥴 UCP MLA Stephen blames safe consumption sites (SCS) for Red Deer’s homeless & crime concerns

Stephen claimed SCS’s attract out-of-town drug addicts who cause most of the trouble

Stephan was asked where he came up with the claim, but no clarity was given
#Ableg News 🧵

10. Kenney’s Australian coal mining pals, Benga Mines, REFUSE to pay a $1,300,000 bill owed to 4 environmental groups, a municipality, and a First Nation.

The costs relate to Banga losing a regulatory hearing which would allowing them to operate an open pit mine.
#Ableg News 🧵


11. On Rapid Test Rollout:

✅ - 30% of Albertans can’t get a rapid test
✅ - ONLY 20% say the UCP are doing a good job

12. Premier Net Approval Rating:
📉- Kenney’s “Net Approval” is MINUS 40!!! The worst in 🇨🇦

(there’s more…)
#Ableg News 🧵

13. Albertans on the Environment & Economy:

✅ 69% want the UCP to step up and protect the Bighorn backcountry of the Rocky Mountains as promised

✅ 62% think Alberta’s economy is heading in the wrong direction

✅ 45% will vote for the NDP 😆

Speaking of…
#Ableg News 🧵

The Best Poll of 2021:

14. If an election were held in Alberta today:

✅ 53% Would vote for the @abndpcaucus (a jump of 20% from 2019)

❌ ONLY 34% Would vote for the @UCPCaucus (a drop of 21%)
#Ableg News 🧵:

One last thought:

If you get the chance to meet your family this holiday season:

Speak Up.
Speak Loud.
Demand A Better Government.
It’s Didn’t Have to be this Way.

I REALLY thought Kenney would take a break with bad news this week.

I was wrong:

📉 Ugly New Polls for Kenney (Story #3)

🗑 NWT dumps Alberta’s racist curriculum (#9)

🤫 UCP quietly enacts new US-style laws (17)

Here’s 17 REALLY bad news stories

📸 @OrrsArt
#Ableg News 🧵

Trouble in UCP Paradise:

1. Friday: Potential UCP MLA Candidate Brian Jean r/t’d a CBC poll showing how unpopular Kennney is to Alberta

2. Sunday: Newly Elected UCP MLA Candidate Brian Jean says he’s spending next year touring Alberta on an “anti-Kenney” agenda
#Ableg News 🧵



3. The latest Leger poll from this week shows:

✅ 66% of Albertans think Jason Kenney deserves a leadership review

#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!
