Alberta has spoken. Jason Kenney’s United Conservative Party won 63 seats, and the NDP, 24 seats.
The election wasn’t as close as pundits wished or claimed it was.
But those pundits just won't let it go. Here's the Toronto Star:
Alberta is now in reverse gear and roaring backwards. Back to the day when a high-school dropout could earn $100,000 a year driving a truck for an oilsands giant. Back to a time when no one had even thought of climate change. All delusion.
Really? That sounds like a pretty good day to me. In 2013 and 2014, there were welders making $180,000 a year. I remember meeting a mom from Newfoundland in Fort McMurray. She came out to cook at a work camp for part of every year, and made $75,000 for six month's work.
The Toronto Star hates it that the “little people” are getting ahead without some government grant or taxpayer “investment,” but by driving, welding, digging — building a country and selling things people want.
Unlike the Toronto Star, for example, which is losing so much money that it’s applying for a bail-out.
A college degree? Spend four years, and incur a hundred grand in debt, to get what? A degree in gender studies? So they can work for $15 an hour — writing clickbait for the Toronto Star?
The funny thing is that the Toronto Star, and the NDP, actually think they’re for the people.
But if they were, then the fact that a high school “dropout” could earn a good living wouldn't make them so mad.
I think they’re jealous.
I have two university degrees. But the day I say that what I do for a living is more morally important than someone without a university degree who not only builds our country, but more importantly, builds a life for himself and his family — well, that’s the day you should stop watching the Rebel...

Who better to talk about this with me than viewer favourite, lawyer Manny Montenegrino.
