Perennial failure, Finance Minister Joe Ceci is holding pre-budget consultations with Albertans.
Well, sort of.
If we want to go to the consultations, we have to be preselected and prescreened by our NDP MLAs first.
Even more shocking than the NDP vetting normal people to ferret out those pesky conservatives from their meetings is that Fort McMurray won’t be getting a pre-budget consultation at all.
I wouldn't want to hear from all those McMurrayites with questions about cuts to last year’s wildfire budget either.
But it’s not just McMurrayites getting the cold shoulder. Pre-budget meetings just wrapped up in Stony Plain where the NDP met with four business owners, an egg farmer, a parenting group and town officials.
They didn’t meet with a single one of the 700 residents whose jobs rely on coal mining in the area.
These consultations are designed to give the results the NDP want. It’s all for show.
