Kenney elected on a lie

During the provincial election, and on many occasions since, the government of Premier Jason Kenney has claimed the NDP government's carbon tax damaged Alberta's economy.

That claim is false, according to economic modelling contained in the Kenney government's own legal documents.

"I think not surprisingly to those of us who have studied carbon taxes, [Kenney's claims] seem quite exaggerated," said University of British Columbia political scientist Kathryn Harrison, an expert in environmental, climate and energy policy.

Interesting that since obtaining office Kenney has managed to increase Alberta's debt by almost $2 billion

Never trust Hoid. He is a card carrying member of the Marxist-Leninist party.

I am not the one who makes 500 memes that say nothing, and prove nothing.

Now run along, kiddo. I think mommy is baking some gingerbread cookies for you.

Why didn't they use an expert from Alberta?

Who would it appeal to?

Oh that's right. The White Nationalist climate change deniers.

From the outside looking in, it doesn't explain the caps put on by the NDP, investment drying up and Canadian business closing up shop and moving South does it?

The article is dependent on models set up by pro carbon pricing and has no basis in real life.

Is everyone a Neo Nazi in your world?

Over 40% of Calgarians are people of colour, and feel the same way. Explain that one, Einstein.

Answer: yes.

Funniest part is that he is completely oblivious of the irony that calling literally everyone a "white natty" shows his obvious bigotry and intolerant racist prejudiced against Caucaisian people. He's the biggest racist hypocrite on this board...lol.

Everyone's models showed that the carbon tax did not hurt Alberta's economy.

Even Kenney's own models

Hoid is the kind of guy that annoyed enough people in 2016, that he paved the way for Trump to get in office. This is what political correctness leads to. Nothing good ever comes out of the mouths of Social Justice Warriors.

So if I'm caucasian, and am disgusted by some caucaisian people (and black people, brown people, yellow people, red people, purple people, green)... am I racist or just a realist?

Since being elected to lead the province of Alberta, the UCP government has eliminated thousands of jobs while diverting billions of dollars toward corporate tax breaks and a PR "war room", including a $2.5M "public inquiry" that encourages Albertans to report "anti-oil" discourse — all while doubling down on a dying, non-renewable resource industry and killing numerous programs designed to diversify and future-proof our province's volatile economy.

By nature of the question, I'd say you're a buffoon. But that's only a guess.
