You Won’t Believe What The NDP Did This Spring:
It started with record deficits & credit downgrades; unbelievably, the NDP are plunging you & I into a $94 Billion debt by 2020!
Then Gov’t opened with Bill 1, which will actually increase transportation & other costs by over $1000 per student for many families in our riding: the opposite of “making life better for AB’s”!
Next: while Ontario took two years to review their Labour Legislation, the AB NDP spent a mere month--on a 252 page document—to learn that business & employer groups are gravely concerned that they are not being heard; so it seems as though the NDP are on the backs of Albertans. The NDP claimed they needed to get it done right now--they had 2 years & 2 ministers to get this process rolling--but chose not to.
The NDP also had 2 ministers & 2 years to introduce a viable Bill which could have ensured real change to the child intervention system; but Paula Simons’ scathing assessment of Bill 18 demonstrates just how much is missing from this legislation. Then the NDP missed yet another opportunity to declare Serenity’s law--her family even came to the capital to encourage the government to take action, & call a public inquiry. Our caucus asked questions on their behalf yet again, & still, the NDP refused to budge.
And there’s more. Hundreds of AB’s have died as a result of the fentanyl crisis; & yet, despite constant calls from opposition, the NDP refused to ever call a public health emergency.
Finally, the NDP have been telling AB’s that “the burden & harm” caused by the Carbon Tax “would all be worth it in the end”--because it would give AB “the social license required to build pipelines to tidewater”--except that the NDP’s comrades from the other side of the mountains unequivocally reject the notion of social license.
The NDP try to talk a good game; but AB’s can’t wait for 2019, when we can revive the AB Advantage for future generations, & Unite Albertans once again!
