I wasn't impressed with the Alberta NDP government's first throne speech. For one thing, they have a lot of nerve calling themselves "entrepreneurial" in the very first line.
The speech also talked about "freedom" -- but got the concept totally wrong.
That was just the corny opening boilerplate, though.
When the speech got down to the laws they hope to pass, for some reason the NDP left out their very first act after taking power:
Their bizarre ban on menthol cigarettes, which you can bet is a portent of things to come.
Of course, they're raising taxes on "the rich," so that Rachel Notley's public sector friends won't have to take a pay cut.
But the level of income they think equals "rich" is actually "average" in some places in the province. How out of touch can the NDP be?
But then, what else can you expect from a bunch of out of province newcomers like Graham Mitchell?
Stick with me while I translate the address's NDP-speak into ordinary English.
