It’s pretty clear that our sixth ballot Premier Danielle Smith and the dysfunctional UCP would sooner butter the bread of big industry rather than help individual Albertans.
Promising $20 Billion – with a big B – cash and credits to the wealthy oil industry to incentivize them into cleaning up orphaned oil wells, something they were supposed to be doing anyway, by law. Meanwhile, the province offers a mere $20 million – small m – to the food banks to help feed the working poor in this province. It’s shameful.
Some of the latest government propaganda – that you and I are paying for – is their claim they are hiring 700 new doctors and 1800 nurses. Where on earth did they find 2,500 health care professionals at the drop of a hat during a global pandemic? They didn’t. It’s creative accounting at best, horse manure at worst.
This is Trump-style politics. Make things up and repeat them over and over in the hopes people believe them. Don’t play us as fools.
Remember, this is the same Danielle Smith who defied the wishes of every single voter who had supported her and her party by crossing the floor – and taking 10 other members with her – to join the Conservatives in 2014, effectively slashing the throat of the Wild Rose opposition.
Why would you trust someone who has a track record of spinning their moral compass to suit themselves instead of listening to the people who elected her?
She had her chance and she blew it. Goodbye.
