Notley “appreciates” Wynne's climate leadership. Is that why she hired Toronto anti-fossil fuel activist Brian Topp?

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne met in Toronto to discuss a Canadian Energy Strategy.

More accurately, the two discussed their new plans to tax everything that moves, grows, burns, warms us, feeds us and powers us. Rachel Notley will do this with her new carbon tax and Wynne, with her cap and trade scheme.

In my head, I envisioned a train wreck and reality wasn't any better.

Rachel Notley's statement read: "It is time for all Canadians to recognize and appreciate the climate leadership we've seen here in Ontario."

Sure. Let's all recognize and appreciate the climate leadership the Ontario government has shown.

They’ve crammed wind turbines into communities that didn’t want them. They overcharged their citizens for electricity to the tune of $37 billion so far. They've chased away manufacturing and business with exorbitant power prices.

If this is the climate leadership Rachel Notley wants us to appreciate, Albertans are in real trouble.

Energy in Ontario costs billions more than it has to --
And the cost keeps going up thanks to Liberal policies.

This is all about convenience more than anything else. We all know that Alberta will pursue the same path than Ontario has pursued, that of accumulating massive deficits in the hundreds of billions of dollars. This borrowing is in the form of selling bonds to institutional lenders (commercial banks, pension funds, etc) The largest of these lenders will be the pension funds, most of which represent public service and industrial unions. Pension funds has specific rules regarding what kind of investment they are permitted to hold: safe, low-risk, and low return. However, pension funds will be compelled, likely by the leadership of the unions, to acquire as much government debt as they have the means to purchase. These bonds, issued by heavily indebted provincial governments, will be high-risk investments, which offer returns that in no way reflect their level of risk. The membership of these unions will not realize the high-risk that their pension savings are exposed to. Effectively, the pension funds will serve as slush-funds for the provincial governments in Alberta and Ontario – governments lead by the venial sociopaths, Notley and Wynne. When these governments default on their debts – and they will – Ottawa will be left holding the bag. Ottawa will also be heavily indebted, selling their own risky bonds to pension funds. Ottawa will absorb these debts into their own. What will happen to these toxic investments? The Bank of Canada will offer a quantitative-easing program and soak up these toxic government debt instruments. And the cycle will begin again…

When is Wynne Appreciation Day again? Or should that be Depreciation Day? Or perhaps that’s every day.

How nice of the two premiers to just skip over Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

The good news is, Glen Murray is no longer the mayor of Winnipeg. I was so glad to see Steven Fletcher roll over him in an election.

Andrew, I have this gut feeling that the Notley crew won’t be in power by the end of fall, they will be ceremoniously ushered out by the people .

I worked in Calgary all those years in construction, some yrs were slow, but there was an overall optimism with Ralph Kline running the province, but there was this nagging fight going on with the public sector unions, like one mourning a Calgary city policeman came by and asked me to turn down or turn off my radio . I had the Dave Rutherford on., I have been a roofer for 50yrs ,found out the neighbor was a nurse. Thanks for comparitve history Peter.

Alberta goes down, Canada goes down. Pretty simple.

Should be funny to watch both of these feminazi’s manage their provinces when this hits hard in the months ahead.

I argue this every day it seems. Deny pipelines so we cannot reach our markets increase taxes add a new tax raise minimum wage increase utility prices the only industry choking thing left is forced unionization

Peter, Great info but denial wrought with excuses is the way everything is dealt with these days. Truth hurts too. People wish for the state to have all of the painful answers. That’s bad enough and then they vote for JT to fix things?

For those of you who continually keep saying that it is only the price of oil that is causing this economic melt down, then here are some actual facts, real data, that prove otherwise.

If Ralph Klein could not only pull Alberta out and debt and leave us in the black but also all the while the price of oil per barrel averaged $34.76 converted to todays’ dollar value and the unemployment rate went down during his tenure. If Ralph can do it, then it proves the NDP are a large contributing factor to the Alberta economic meltdown.

Oil prices in relation to Premier of Alberta:
Ralph Klein (1993 – 2006)

Oil Price is adjusted for today’s dollar value
