Premier Rachel Notley is convening a panel of "business attraction experts" to try to entice online retail giant Amazon to build a second global headquarters here in Alberta.
Forgive me for not being optimistic.
How can Notley attract a multi-billion dollar business to Alberta when she couldn't keep the ones we already had?
Ever since the NDP took power and started their attacks on free enterprise, there has been a mass exodus of multinational oil companies from Alberta.
But it's not just big oil and gas companies. Rachel Notley killed smaller, long time Alberta businesses too.
With over 200,000 Albertans unemployed, we desperately need these Amazon jobs.
But let's not pretend for a second that Amazon hasn't seen the same things about Alberta the rest of us have.
