Everything old is still old. Unless you are Jason Kenney. Then it's brand new and somehow it will work despite never working before. Trickle-down economics right out of the Randian book of failure. Thatcher's failed Big Society offloading. ALEC inspired labour exploitation endorsed by anti-union forces. More Harper style Law & Order that will end up in court on Constitutional grounds. Attacks on rights for students at all levels from elimination of Bill 24 protections for LGBTQ2+ youth to threats of post-secondary funding dependent on allowing far right propaganda on campus without protest.

That doesn't even touch the proposed "war room" to defend last century's industry, the threatened unwinnable challenges on the Federal government that will do nothing but cost money and the multiple promises that "maintaining current funding" is not a funding cut. Despite 15,000 new students in Alberta entering the system every year. Despite the aging population needing increased access to healthcare plus population growth.

As multinational Oil & Gas companies get out of the oilsands to prevent stranded assets, they need more subsidies and gifts apparently. And there is no need to end coal-fired electircity generation, according to these visionaries. If you think repealing the Alberta carbon levy regime is going to prevent or change anything, like the Federal plan being imposed, you must be a UCP mark. But then that plays into the poor Alberta false reality, but it will be Albertans who pay not the corporations increasing profit margins. But hey, P3's will be back big time. They still don't save any money and cost much more in the long run but this is a campaign for the literal survival of Alberta. Just ask the guys being investigated by the RCMP for illegal donations and vote rigging. As if the Ontario mess isn't warning enough, this one will go down to the wire.
