    What's the ratio between NDP resignations and UCPs resignations/pushed out due to various scandals in the last 12 months?

    my wife got an ndp telephone survey yesterday. It was only a few questions long. They were multiple choice answers. Of all the questions and answers there wasnt any mention of lgbtq concerns.

    A bit surprised that it wasnt one of the many choices for the question asking What are the top issues facing Alberta. For a party who's pushed this as a top concern for the last 3+ years they've dropped it like a hot potato for some reason from their surveys.

    Yup, there’s power hungry people across the spectrum that just see democracy as a means to their ends.

    Name a political party that, upon gaining power, wouldn’t kill the democratic system if they could.

    ran into an old friend who's never voted in his life before. One of his first topics of conversation that he brought up was if I was voting this year. He already knew that answer as I always do. I've always tried to get him to vote. After 40+ years hes decided enough of the bs that hes voting. Hes rounding up as many people as possible to vote as well....

    Guess that's what 4 years of the ndp does to the average non voting person... gives them a reason to finally get out and vote.

    I was shocked. I've always told him to vote. Hes always said no. He never voted before in his entire life. It was odd seeing someone talk politics who has purposely avoided this topic his entire life.

    Thanks alot Notley!

    Pretty crappy citizen. Glad though that he’s decided to take some responsibility for being able to live under the system we’re lucky to have.


    However, I pay more attention to those that have long voted, that think about the qualifications of who’s running, think about what’s best and needed at the time and don’t blindly and thoughtlessly and ignorantly support one power-hungry tribal political party over the power-hungry tribal political party(s).

    Yes good for anyone to FINALLY get off their ***, step up and vote.

    However giving the guy airtime is like the common CBC practice of giving airtime to the reformed {fill in the blank} guy who’s likely written a book on how they’ve finally “seen the light”, “turned a new leaf”, changed their ways... They rarely if ever interview the person that simply always followed the rules, obeyed the law, always helped society, never took drugs, never sold drugs, didn’t spend half their life in jail, wasn’t an extreme racist or whatever.

    'I can't afford the luxury of doing the right thing': Prairie farmers on the front lines of climate change

    AMANDA STEPHENSON, CALGARY HERALD
    Updated: January 18, 2019

    Prairie farmers on the front lines of climate change | Calgary Herald

    “Prairie farmers report experiencing record precipitation, flooding and drought in the last 10 years, according to a Senate report released in mid-December. While many acknowledge a rise in extreme weather in recent years, they aren’t convinced that what they’re seeing is climate change-related. Many also feel unfairly targeted, both by government-imposed carbon taxes that threaten to hurt their bottom line, as well as by a growing consumer perception that large-scale agriculture is bad for the planet.”




    ...


    “Carbon tax opposition

    It’s not just public perception that worries Copithorne-Barnes, former chair of the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef. Like many agricultural producers, she fears climate-related government policy changes, such as the carbon taxes mandated by several provinces as well as the Canadian federal government, will put her at a competitive disadvantage with farmers in other countries. While Alberta did create an exemption for “purple gas” (gasoline and diesel purchased for on-farm use) when it instituted a carbon tax for the first time in 2016, farmers are still subject to the carbon tax in many other forms, from the natural gas used to heat large barns to the increased costs they pay for fertilizer and livestock transportation. All of it impacts the bottom line and makes it less likely farmers will invest in new technologies and equipment that can actually help the environment, she said.

    “I looked into putting up solar panels on my shop on my land, but...”

    Darn that Notley, helping companies to produce a product that other refineries will actually be able to use.

    Calgary-based company to build $2-B bitumen upgrader facility near Edmonton

    A Calgary-based petroleum company plans to build a bitumen upgrader facility in Edmonton’s industrial heartland.


    Alberta Premier Rachel Notley made the announcement Tuesday at a news conference in Calgary.


    Value Creation Inc. will be spearheading the $2-billion project.


    “If a final investment decision is reached, it will create over 2,000 jobs,” she said. “Our government is proud to be making this happen.”

    so a photo op announcing something may be built but no decisions actually been made? Why are we announcing something thats not final? Seems desperate.

    can anyone comment on why the ndp have so few candidates set for the election? Is it common for there to be so few people committed to a a party when the election is a couple months away?

    MLA Ndp Colin Piquette deciding not to run. Long winded story/post on Facebook blames the decision on the electoral boundary changes and its toll on his family.
