Harvey Bishop Rose Dillman The Alberta PCs, after Peter Lougheed left office, were extremely corrupt disasters and virtually depleted Alberta's finances from multitudes of very costly scandals and neglect. That includes virtually depleting the Heritage Savings Trust Fund to practically nothing. Ralph Klein even used it for costly scandals like Alpac/ Mitsubishi and to help pay off the provincial debt and deficit.

J.E. Molnar When it comes to Jason Kenney’s charisma and political gravitas he is the wet, soiled towel voters left at the beach. 

Jason Kenney was strongly against abortion and gay marriage, now doesn’t want to talk about them. He doesn’t want a price on carbon,
 but once suggested a “small sales tax” in Alberta. Kenney’s against deficits, but voted for 7 of them as a Conservative minister under Stephen Harper’s regime. Kenney has been a polarizing and divisive politician both within and outside the party. Be careful what you wish for Alberta.

Harvey Bishop Tina Fox The major mistake was that the Alberta PCs, after Peter Lougheed left office, were extremely corrupt disasters and virtually depleted Alberta's finances from multitudes of very costly scandals and neglect. The voters let them get away with it. Remember: In 2019, vote for the Alberta PCs. Your dictators, your bribe money. Because scandals like the $34.5 billion electricity deregulation disaster, the $26 billion Northwest Upgrader fiasco and Alison Redford's $10 billion tobaccogate lawsuit scheme isn't worse than the Federal Liberals $250 million Adscam.

Chuck Keil Imagine that, Thomson actually acknowledges the economic truth

"“The NDP is desperate to talk about anything but the economy.”

There’s definitely truth to that. The NDP is governing in the middle of a recession created by a collapse in the price of oil and has irritated conservatives through a series of policies including the introduction of a carbon levy. It is also running multibillion-dollar deficits every year."

Julie Ali I doubt that having a Conservative Party in power would have changed the deficit business. But certainly the NDP are wasting a ton of cash on dumb decisions and ignoring problems that they could deal with. I wonder if the right really wants to be in power right now. The NDP are stuck with bad times and poor revenue generation. I don't know why they exacerbated the problem with the green washing carbon tax that doesn't provide us with any sort of climate change leadership. Maybe the cash from the Carbon tax can be used for energy efficient projects but these projects seem problematic if they need public money to become economically feasible. All in all a rather messy situation for the NDP, poor performance for taxpayers and not much can be done about this mess other than to introduce a sales tax. However I don't see citizens putting up with more taxes until cuts are made to the Sunshine List at government and the ABCs (agencies, boards and commissions). We're being sucked dry and the marrow in these bones is almost gone.

And the biggest place where money is being wasted is in the health department where almost $15 million bucks was handed out for junk bond science--why? Good question.

Julie Ali Glenn Jones They did do the Sky Palace, blow up hospitals for no damn reason and yes, they weren't good with getting royalties from the oil and gas industry. In addition they left us with residues such as the fact that we can't hold the energy regulator accountable by taking the AER to court--for some odd reason the PCs made the energy regulator immune from citizen accountability. Nice group of folks. Ah, yes, let us not forget the Tapcal Fund which adds to their anti-democratic nature. Wonder who paid into this fund. No one also asks about the major environmental mess that has been turned into a historical site of significance -Turner Valley Gas Plan--we got to pay for the remediation of this place for what reason I can't determine.
The Turner Valley Gas Plant is a provincial historic site and the best example of a complete historic gas plant in Canada.

Julie Ali Harvey Bishop The people were cowed or ignorant and this is why the PCs got away with their junk. The fact is that the people knew that their best survival mechanism was to shut up and let the oil monarchs do their junk. Rarely is it possible for ordinary citizens to upend the elite. In any case we didn't know about the horrors like the over 700 kids dead in the child welfare system because of the Tory spin and secrecy. Now we do know. And even with the NDP it's the same old junk. #GOASPIN#GOASecrecy
