Jason Kenney’s economic policies are failing Alberta..

January 16, 2020

Good Lord, can Alberta survive another spring of renewal like the last one?

Another springtime of renewal — that’s what Government House Leader Jason Nixon and the United Conservative Party’s meme machine were promising yesterday with the announcement the Alberta Legislature will get back to business on February 25.

“At only 12% of the way though our mandate, we’ve delivered on 43% of our commitments to Albertans so far,” Premier Jason Kenney or one of his social media surrogates tweeted merrily with a huckster’s love of spurious statistics. “Looking forward to another spring of renewal.”

Jason Kenney should not be allowed to dictate federal agenda..

November 21, 2019

The most noisy and insistent political voice since the election has been that of Jason Kenney, Alberta premier and former senior minister in Stephen Harper’s Conservative government.

Kenney does not care that the Trudeau government is so staunchly pro-pipeline that it bought one. Kenney doesn’t show appreciation when Liberals talk about balancing the economy and the environment.

Instead, the Alberta premier portrays the centrist, pro-big-business federal Liberals as a hostile force, dedicated to destroying Alberta’s main industry. And he threatens a series of incoherent and mostly meaningless retaliatory measures if the rest of Canada does not change its tune on climate change and fossil fuels.

Kenney pledges ‘I will never give up on Canada’ while stoking Alberta separatist sentiment..

August 7, 2019

The province where separatism is now supposedly blossoming is Alberta, the spoiled child of Confederation. Conservative Premier Jason Kenney has been trying to make it appear there’s a viable separatist movement here, the better to discomfit Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In this seditious effort, spread through the use of social media memes and videos, a pious Kenney casts himself as national saviour. “I will never give up on Canada,” he said in a recent video — at least as long as there’s a chance he can be prime minister. All the while, he has been ginning up a fake national unity crisis founded on the ludicrous notion that if Trudeau and his Liberal Party are re-elected, Albertans will stream to the exits.

The Pope says global warming is real. What will publicly pious carbon-tax hating Catholics like Jason Kenney do?…

June 17, 2019

Conservative Alberta was reeling over the weekend at Friday’s news from Rome that Pope Francis, leader of 1.3 billion Catholics, has declared global warming to be a real thing and putting a price on carbon to be “essential” to saving the planet.
