Unemployment continues to rise in Alberta. On average, about 1000 jobs per week in oil and gas and related industries are being lost.
You may recall the endless coverage the media gave to the Caterpillar plant closing in London, Ontario.
That was the right call by the media, since the closing affected the lives of many people.
But isn't it interesting that what has been happening to individuals in Alberta, doesn't merit the same attention?
Perhaps it has something to do with the media not wanting to destroy the narrative about an NDP win being a positive for working people.
But then again, if Alberta's own leaders like Notley and Nenshi don't care about these personal tragedies, why should the national media?
Alberta’s NDP just gave their unionized government workers a 7.25% raise!
