Which System Do You Game On?

Pick you poison.. There are no wrong answers but you can only pick one! :)

Other is for... all others. The box is small.. I put a few ideas of "others" but there are countless more... If you are not in the previous options.. you are.. "other". :)

Most excellent read. The PCs and WRP are both saying that a 1% increase in corporate tax will result in 9,000 jobs lost... "In response, the Alberta Federation of Labour (AFL) pointed out that in the two years following the April 2013 move in British Columbia to increase corporate income tax from 10% to 11%, the BC economy actually added 37,000 jobs."

The Alberta Federation of Labour. Oh and Mintz? The person the PCs are quoting and the guy who's criticizing the AFL? "It turns out that Mintz is hardly a non-partisan, neutral outside observer of Alberta’s politics. Rather, in addition to being an advisor to the Alberta PC government, Mintz has a self-interest to advocate for the interests of the oil industry, most notably Imperial Oil, a corporation which Mintz serves as a member of its Board of Directors, making a comfy six-figure salary and holding over $1.3 million in investments. This, of course, is on top of his faculty salary from the University of Calgary."

Let that sink in on your way to the polls!
Does the frequently cited claim that Alberta's economy will shed 9000 jobs for every 1% increase in the corporate tax rate hold up to scrutiny?

+Richard Anderson 100%, I know there are differences but Norway has managed to do it so I don't understand why we can't.

On May 5th, please remember all of the bad math the PCs have brought us when you head to the polls and solve for X.

Good read regarding the upcoming Alberta election. Sets the "facts" straight re: pipeline support, etc. as well as attempts to take the wind out of the PC/WRP fear-mongering campaigns.

I propose we pick best two, give them the main chair for 3 months to see how they are doing... then vote.

Have you ever bought a car before doing your knowledge checking and test driving?

I've voted in every election I've been able to for the past 22 years. This is an election of first for me... first time voting for a different party, first time donating to a party, and first time having a lawn sign.

That's how important I think this election is for not only the province but for the education of my kids.

+Alison Christensen , the Americans, at the national level, have some weird system in which they kill a chicken while muttering "Electoral College."

Provincially and federally, Canadians do the (to me) more straight-forward thing where every riding (ward, whatever) has candidates representing the parties and whomever gets the most votes wins the seat... and whichever party gets the most candidates elected to seats is invited to form a government.

This means, of course, that you can have a minority government, in which the party with the most seats has fewer than half the total seats available, and parties can form coalitions.

Friendly staff, clean rooms. Stayed in the one bedroom + loft, nice and roomy with kitchen. Could have used heavier blankets and a new couch/sofa bed. Plenty to do with 2 pools, water slides and a huge indoor play centre for the kids. Oh, and could have used some parking enforcement as there were quite a few non-registered guests parking in registered guests spots meaning we had to park at the front and walk a bit of a distance to our room.

Great time, friendly guides and dogs. Both kids - 8 and 10 - got to drive the sleds as well and had an absolute blast. We did the 2h tour, tempted to take the 4h tour next time! Definitely worth it.
