If you thought the last four years were haphazard, almost like the captain of the HMS Alberta was wearing a blindfold, wait until you hear the NDP's plan if they get re-elected.
Ready? Here it is: They don't have one. But even if she did have a plan, would you trust it? If you go back and read through the NDP's 2015 election platform, a quick Ctrl-F of the document reveals they mentioned the carbon tax a grand total of zero times. That should tell you something.
Now it appears that even when the deck is stacked for the NDP, with gerrymandered ridings and all the perks of incumbency, they still haven't managed to figure out what the next four years are going to look like. Maybe it's the result of them still being gobsmacked that they were allowed to govern for the last four.
Rachel Notley's campaign announcement in Calgary was full of attacks on Jason Kenney, but precious little was said about the next twenty-eight-day campaign, let alone the next four years.
Perhaps the NDP have been too busy wasting taxpayer dollars on government spending announcements to put together a platform. I checked out their website. They have an “About" page, a “Candidates” page, “News”, “Events”, “Volunteer”, “Get a Sign” and “Donate” links. No platform though! I checked everywhere.
They've gone so far to create easy to watch videos on each of their policies.
The NDP says Jason Kenney’s campaign is stuck in the 1960s, but the only person in Alberta looking backwards is Rachel Notley. Everyone else in the province is trying to forget the last four years.
