Notley’s Economic Development Minister announces another sure to FAIL job creation program

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Will there ever be a week that goes by that the Alberta NDP don’t have to make announcements and back track on one of their failed policies?

The latest is the cancelled $178M program that was supposed to create 27,000 jobs. It actually didn’t even create a single job, unless you count Minister Deron Bilous’ who oversees the program.

One job creation program that seems to have worked for the NDP is the increase in public sector employment. Just think of the billions of dollars tax payers will owe for pensions and contracts for years to come and think of all of the unemployed people in Edmonton and area that suffer without Employment Insurance extensions because the numbers don’t tell the real story behind employment numbers being stable in those regions. They don’t tell the story that Rachel Notley and her caucus bloated the public sector so heavily that it cushioned unemployment statistics.

The NDP have now promised $10M to promote start-ups and create new jobs, but they clearly haven’t factored in those small businesses that are suffering as a result of the decline in the oil patch. After all, those businesses count on oilfield workers to keep them afloat and many have had to shut down as a result of the downturn.

How will incentives to start a business create even one job, when so many are already closing?

It sounds like Deron Bilous announced another policy that will most certainly fail, once again.

The most important part to them was " the meeting " with lip service

Last February I sat at a nice table in a suit and a tie – in a major, multi-billion dollar company’s board room – across the table from me was Deron and his chief of staff and Deron’s female administrative assistant.

We spent about 45 minutes discussing ways I had planned to bring jobs and money to Alberta – AT NO FINANCIAL COST to Alberta. What I needed was a permit. And I would help him with all the technical details to get that permit – again – at NO COST to Alberta.

He as happy as could be to talk. His COS (rhymes with POS) and all the other minor players were smiling and talking and he told me – “Be sure to take my business card – send me your proposal and we will get right on it. It is a great idea and a great opportunity.”

I told the guys working for me, and my business partner after the meeting – “Well, that was a waste of time”.

No one believed me when I told them he was spreading shit and trying to smell like a rose.

Everyone was – “That was such a positive meeting!”

Well, I sent of the proposal less than three days after the meeting………….


Not even a PFO letter – for an environmentally friendly and high tech business……….

I bet he is loving the high life and all the attention though……….

Deron Bilous should go sit in a nice car in a nice sunny place with the windows rolled up until he discovers for himself that Co2

Three more years of this NDP crap. Let’s hope Alberta can be salvaged by the next government in three years time.

Sure, Malcolm Johnston, sure. I’ll get right on that.

It’s painfully obvious that the dippers are scrambling to find someway they can fund a bunch renewable energy projects and call it job creation….
they are so incompetent it almost brings a tear to ones eye…

Canada is finished. Get out with as many assets as you can before it’s too late.

The " feed back" that the minister got back from the business community was just good old fashioned UPCHUCK

Maybe the Dips can rig a treadmill drive system for the non working wind turbines in the Crowsnest pass – get their unemployable campus commie kinder to trot on a windmill treadwheel like an over-amped hamster – put that world changer energy to good use.
