It’s the first week back at school in Alberta's capital city, and Premier Rachel Notley couldn't miss this opportunity to turn the grand opening of a new school in St. Albert into an early campaign stop for the NDP.
Notley gave a highly political speech to a crowd of mostly 11-year-olds, telling the Sixth Graders that the United Conservatives would never have built their school:
“There are some people who would say we shouldn't be building new schools. (…)
"They would say we shouldn't have so many teachers and they would say your classrooms should have more kids in them, not less."
No one is saying this, in fact.
I wouldn't want my child's school used as a backdrop from NDP attack ad against the opposition, and not just because I vote Conservative, but because my kids aren't NDP props for the teachers and the school board to offer up at the Premier’s disposal.
Its disgusting. It’s creepy. But respect for other people's children aside, there's a bigger issue at play:
The NDP are in the middle of a curriculum rewrite in Alberta (see below)...
