Much of Alberta Pensions under direct or indirect control of the Conservatives are riding in this! They will tell you it is a pension investment and if it goes south? That is the way it goes. Free money for them.
The Conservatives used this jargon to convince Albertans they had a plan! We all know better now.
We are paying hundreds of Millions on Centrifuge operations in Mildred Lake and our conventional oil royalty is down to 5% Canadian$. (Compare that to 30% US of our neighbors)
They want us to fork out a billion for a pipeline to the coast to supply India with oil. You will not Stelmach did not ask, he said he was going to do it so, dig in.
And finally, the outright lie of us making money on the CCS 2.4 billion dollar lie.
It has been flushed out that the CCS is being paid by taxpayer who gets stuck with 100% of that bill. However they will proceed and you will pay!
The Carbon Capture was touted as returning billions back to the taxpayer in royalty. However, this Government has reduced the royalty on that segment of the industry to 5% Canadian over five years. This doesn't cover administration. You will remember Liepert telling Alaska they charge too much for royalty!
Our royalty take is the lowest in the world's history! If there is a chance there will be money made it will be used to further reduce royalty. It is a no win system for this Province under the Conservatives.
The Wild Rose Party offers no different except for their push to stop balance of payments; making Quebec the villain in their campaign; saying they will recover 5 billion a year that now goes to balance of payments.
In truth, the Conservatives are the only thing that is putting this province at risk!
If you are still stuck on Conservative, you are doomed!
