--Jeremy Johnston Power for powers sake We already know what their plan is Fildie laid it out for us Claw away pensions, benefits, wages and jobs from front line public sector workers Tax breaks for the rich And to hell with everyone else---------Julie Ali I am curious how we -the taxpayers are expected to pay for the pay, benefits and pensions of all the workers at the GOA when we aren't getting value for the work that is done in some cases. I speak of for example the failures of Alberta Health to do any sort of proper oversight of the continuing care system. We are paying big bucks for the executive staff and bureaucrats and yet we still have incidents of nursing students indicate to us the problems at facilities such as the recent case at Lacombe. Why are we supposed to pay for all these bureaucrats who have not performed their jobs? Why can't we get the performance we expect in the private sector? And how long are families expected to provide the higher standard of living for the public sector workers without the deliverables while we do without? It's a question of fairness. Families work hard without the benefits, pension plans and wages of the public sector workers. Some of them actually do a good job. Others don't and treat taxpayers with disrespect. Why should we have such workers around?

On Wednesday alone, Wildrose Leader Brian Jean held four events around southern Alberta and Kenney a town hall at the south Edmonton Delta Hotel; both will likely tread the Calgary Stampede barbecues and breakfasts trail next week.
Thursday marks one year since Jason Kenney rumbled onto Alberta’s political scene and launched his plan to unite the province’s conservatives. He spent last summer…

Julie Ali Wow. Reading these comments indicate the NDP folks are in election mode already. The PCs messed up but the NDP folks aren't doing any better. It's clear to me at least that the Conservatives will win the next election. I am curious though if they really want to win because bringing back the PCs from near extinction, won't be good for re-election chances. It's interesting that Mr. Kenney has abandoned federal politics to arrive in Alberta to save us from our election choices.

Glenn Jones thye public sector unions are the biggest drain on this province. When everyone else is facing cutbacks, why should the non revenue earners keep getting more?

Julie Ali Glenn Jones I don't know how much the unionized workers cost us but the ABCs--agencies,boards and commissions do cost us a ton of cash every single year. Until the ABCs are pruned the costs of the GOA will be increasing and will be unsustainable. Unions are useful when folks need help as a group as in the case of the Cold Lake mass firings at the Points West Living facility but otherwise don't (in my opinion) help its members. Certainly we are paying a lot for unionized workers in Alberta. More interesting to me is the amounts of cash we pay to executive staff at the GOA and the health authorities. We don't get value in my opinion from the top dogs. At least with the front line staff we can see the deliverables.https://www.facebook.com/yourAUPE/ AUPE - Alberta Union of Provincial Employees

#ColdLakeLockout, over.
The collective agreement, which expires at the end of 2019, contains an agreement prohibiting PWL from contracting out, recognizes concerns regarding workload and short staffing, and will bring wages close to industry standard by the end of the contract. Staff will return to work July 4. #AUPE

J.E. Molnar “…pick up a membership for his party and vote twice.” - Nate Glubish, Wildrose Party

Voting twice in a leadership or merger contest would seem a bit bizarre I guess, unless you live in Alberta where the conservatives have no apparent limits to stupidi
ty or lack of ethics. You really can’t make this stuff up.

Stacking the ballots is about as undemocratic as it gets. Will that also be the new Wildrose election platform going forward? “Vote Two Times — Make Democracy Count Twice as Much!”

Barry Moon Surely it is against the Constitution of both parties. I'm merely speculate as I have not read either but it is the norm for political parties. I find it rather bizarre as well to allow two memberships.

Dar Dealmeida Two parties struggling to hurt the working stiff and fill their greedy pockets, one was a Mommy's boy and the other never held a real job in his life, finished a degree and is still hiding in his own corrupt closet!
