The NDP are nationalizing drivers license testing in Alberta in March, but like everything they touch — from land use, to the electricity system, to education — this plan is a disaster based on the destruction of reputations, and falsehoods.
Fifty of Alberta's 153 independent and privatized testing providers have stopped providing service this week to protest what they say is the government’s unfair treatment.
The testing providers say they are being ignored by the government and denied fair compensation.
To justify robbing Alberta small businesses of livelihoods they’ve built from the ground up, the NDP has made claims of a lack of integrity in the testing system that they claim has resulted in up to seven complaints per day to Alberta transportation.
Seven complaints per day seems like a lot. But today, I’ll provide a little context to that number using the government’s own data about the overall number of tests written each year.
What the Alberta government doesn't want you to know is that 1,820 complaints on average per year, only amounts to a complaint rate of less than 1 per cent.
It's just another NDP lie.
