There’s something precious about Rachel Notley arguing that she knows the pulse of Albertans better than Jason Kenney, because he has been out of the province too long.
Notley herself really did abandon Alberta, to go work for the NDP in British Columbia, from 1994 to 2002. She became a British Columbian, because she put working for the NDP ahead of working for Alberta. Her first loyalty is to her party, and to the unions.
She’s been back in Alberta for a decade, but it’s a bit rich that she’d accuse others of not being Albertan enough.
Even weirder, when you look at the senior staff she has hired to run the province: Ten out of 12 of her first chiefs of staff were from outside of Alberta.
