Elke Babiuk You have zero understanding about fiscal management in a recession, nor do you understand what comparable compensation to the private sector means. One cannot pay public CEOs less than what they would make in other provinces or the private sector.

It is troubling that when I speak about the failures of the NDP in Alberta these posts are considered to be unfair.
I don't see why I can't complain about the NDP folks. They are after all the government now. When the PCs were in power I did not refrain from criticism of their performance.
If the NDP supporters are too thin skinned to accept the criticism of their party folks while at the same time criticizing the right this is hypocrisy in my opinion.
All political parties are the same.
All of them use us to get to power.
Once in power they do not represent us but ignore us.
When it comes to the next election they butter us up for the rehiring process and the business repeats.
The NDP folks will not get rehired in Alberta.
They are nice people but doing stuff like blocking me from their sites is not democratic work.
It's anti-democratic work.
I see no reason why I can't say my opinions of their poor performance. More Albertans are now out of work. And why? It's because of the poor performance of the political party we hired and the failures to contain the spending.
Money is not found in magical places.
It comes from us.
We pay for all these folks.
I see no reason why we cannot contain costs by laying off workers without deliverables and reducing salaries.
We get this sort of action taken all the time in the private sector.
Why not in the public sector? There are no sacred cows.
We'll prove this in the next election.
Don't like this opinion? Too bad. It's a democracy and I can say it. Perhaps not on your Timeline but on mine.
Now go ahead and block me.

Conservative politicians promise the world but fail to deliver.
"With the credit downgrade, Manitoba's rating under S&P Global Ratings is the same as Alberta's, which was dropped two notches in May. S&P cited projected deficits and rapidly growing debt as the reasons.
Alberta has taken a significant hit to its revenue in recent years due to low oil prices, but the government has opted not to cut spending on services such as education and health."

The Manitoba government has had its credit rating downgraded for the second time in 13 months by S&P Global Ratings.

Julie Ali It is poor fiscal management to continue spending money without revenue coming in. I guess the Heritage Trust Fund will be used next. I think it is time for cutting public sector workers. When we don't have the cash I see no reason to keep all the managers at places like AHS and Covenant Health. Its troubling we have this bulge of managers at public agencies and at the GOA but this is where the cuts need to occur. We can't afford these folks any longer. Also there needs to be major downsizing of the top of the pyramid of government and the ABCs--the CEO of AHS needs a reduction in pay as does the CEO of Covenant Health. Why are we paying exorbitant compensation from the time of the PC error to the present time of the NDP error? Insufficient money coming in means more debt with the same labour pool.

Julie Ali Elke Babiuk Why not? If there is no money this is what is required. The fact is a recession is here and worse is coming up. Just look at the past -at the depression era and see how the pay was then. You don't have to have any accounting degree to understand that you can't pay folks with magical money.
