I wouldn't feel comfortable about having a Prime Minister who makes impossible promises like the above when he doesn't have a clue what he's talking about or why it can't be done.

Combining the fact he doesn't have a clue about what he spouts with the fact that those he's pandering to probably don't either and what do you get? - Just more of what we're already dealing with; ineffectual dumbazzery.

I’m ignoring the rest of your post for now, as it’s too tempting to whine about how badly the Liberals have treated Manitoba. Compared to Ontario and Quebec, we’re not worth bribing for potential votes.

Sometimes, I wish I would just shut up! I had better take a break from CD.



OK I looked at the graphs again. You have a point.


In the spirit of shutting my mouth, I drop the mike.

I congratulate you on your regularness.

Daniele Smith has terrible views about minorities, LBGT, education and health including cancer. She would make an even worse premier than Kenney as I'd one of the worse candidates for leader. The Alberta First is simply an attempt to get bored from the angry.

The UCP attempts to get away with bad policies by blaming everything on Trudeau and Quebec. Their horrible management of the health of dervices is due to bad management and not lack of funds. For example centralizing 911 means ambulances are sent to the wrong town or city.

There are factions in Alberta who always say this, but they don't ever elect a real rebel party. I watched Danielle Smith and there is nothing impressive about her. Alberta would need a rabble-rouser like Donald Trump to get people fired up. IMO Alberta doesn't have what it takes, not even close. Are Albertans really willing to be a different country from British Columbia? Think about it, they don't even have a real independent identity.

Oh, the rhetoric of joining the USA is crazy. Why would they want Alberta? They already get access to all the resources in Alberta. Why would they accept what would be a poor state in the middle of nowhere, and **** permanently off Canada - a very close friend? Why would they want to cause tension on their continent where there is very little tension? Do you think that the USA let's just anybody in?

Other people talking about Alberta laying down the law towards the Canadian gouvernment and American government is delusional talk. Does anyone understand how geopolitics works? There is a reason why insignificant countries like Suriname or Malawi don't tell the USA how things are going to work from now on.

Well the poor Province wannabe U.S State of Alberta, is actually the wealthiest Province in the land by per capita GDP. So as the Province with the wealthiest Canadians on a per capita basis - it would be nice to know what the issues are as they relate to being in Canada. I have asked this before and didn't get anything really coherent. There was a rant from Kitty and then she just sort of said she needs to take a break from this - but she touched upon energy issues and building that infrastructure to the rest of Canada having unnecessary roadblocks.

So we have a rather vocal group in Alberta who are not happy. If anyone can build on that in a structured, logical manner i'd like to hear it.

No bites! No problem. Looks like things aren't too bad in Alberta.. Jason Kenney is inviting Torontonians and Vancouverites to come to Alberta and enjoy higher wages, lower taxes and lower housing costs

Quote:
According to the Alberta government, the campaign – named "Alberta Is Calling" – aims to encourage "skilled, educated and motivated talent" to move to Alberta instead, citing reasons like better wages, fewer taxes and more affordable housing.

Alberta's Premier Jason Kenney said the campaign would highlight the "many cost of living, career and lifestyle advantages that Alberta offers."

"Despite a growing tech industry, relatively affordable housing, and extensive parks and outdoor activities, the report found many young people think Alberta lacks vibrancy and diversity.

Most of the youth surveyed also negatively associated the province with conservatism and intolerance. "

I liked both Calgary and Edmonton. The close proximity to the Rockies as well, especially Calgary would be a big draw for me. I'm not really that into 'vibrancy' anymore. I lived in a vibrant place most of my life and i'd be fine with a more chill place. I actually live in a chill place now and its ok for me. I can always travel outside of Canada if I need vibrancy. Calgary is clean, big enough and has a pretty decent gay scene (good enough for me at this stage of my life). It's also beautiful and has a nice park system. From 2016 to 2021 Calgary and Edmonton still saw strong growth rates I believe on par or even a bit better than Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver so they are growing steadily.

I'd actually totally move there if I could, but I have family commitments that keep me where I am. From what I saw, the diversity was decent but i'm more concerned with a safe place with good people and Calgary ticks that off. In the big two cities anyway, to me seemed to be a sizable mix of political persuasions.
