As an Albertan, I’ve been on the receiving end of out of province meddlers getting involved in Alberta politics more times than I can count. I don’t like it so I normally don't like to tell other people what to do with their vote.
But, BC is playing with fire with the NDP leading in their provincial election so I can’t stand by and say nothing.
I have a message for BC’ers: You do not want the NDP back! They went to Alberta, and for that you should count yourself lucky.
Watch my video to see the astounding divergence of payroll growth between Alberta and BC since Rachel Notley took power.
It’s a tale of two provinces and two ways of tackling economic problems - one successful and one in the ditch.
Don’t get me wrong, I'm not making an argument for Christy Clark and the BC liberals. I have a lot of criticism of her and them.
But I am making an argument, as an Albertan who is living this, that voting for the NDP because you feel like it’s time for a change is like burning down your house because you hate the colour of the walls in the spare bedroom. It’s overkill!
You stand to lose too much, maybe even everything as so many Albertans are finding out.
You don't want to end up like me, envious of payroll growth in the Atlantic provinces and Kathleen Wynne's Ontario.
