Every day I read about more jobs lost in Calgary. More than 100 Albertans are leaving the province every single day.
What’s Rachel Notley’s plan? Well, They're bragging about "leading on climate change and creating jobs with solar power."
So, you’re sitting on the world’s third-largest oil reserves, but according to this press release, you’re going to give a $5 million subsidy to some schemes to put solar panels on top of barns?
Solar panels that aren’t even made in Alberta — so basically, we’re subsidizing foreign manufacturers whose product can’t pay for itself without a government subsidy.
A product that is so unreliable, it only works if there is a coal- or gas-fired power plant to back it up.
And of course, being solar, it only works during the daytime.
And when it’s not cloudy. Or snowing, like it is in Alberta right now.
WATCH and I'll tell you about the professor who studied these solar schemes and proved that far from saving you money, if you install them on your house, you will never make your money back.
But that was before this same professor went to work for the Alberta NDP...
Not one new job will be created by Notley's new plan.
OK, that’s not fair. No fewer than five NDP spin doctors are listed on the press release, to push this deal. So, that's five government jobs created, for $5 million.
