A camel is a horse built by consortium!
Outspoken Wildrose finance critic Derek Fildebrandt has been appointed chairman of the legislature’s public accounts committee and vows to uproot past spending “boondoggles” of the previous government and scrutinize current cash plans of the NDP. “As chairman of public accounts, I will work hard to ensure that every penny of Albertans’ hard-earned tax dollars are spent wisely, and with sound justification,” Fildebrandt said in a news release. “I ...

Google has decided not to let me post any more, strictly arbitrary on their part.  I did get one Google type phone call saying an affidavit had been filed ###.  Early in the am I had neither the pen nor paper to note the number.   What is apparent however is your personal blog can be shut down at Google for no good reason by any one.  Suggest you try Wordpress if  you are staring out.  Google obviously not safe for all their great organization.

It is a 1% increase actually. #Liepert dropped our royalty to zero from 16%  at the same time, they hit the tar sands with a 15% carbon tax telling the world how environmentally in tune they were.  Where did the #other 1% go that they are not paying now?
An industry jobs forecast in Alberta has some grim news for those working in the energy sector, saying that 25,000 people could lose their jobs in 2015.

RBC own a large amount of bulk water export permits.  When Harper goes full tilt into exporting water RBC plans on very big gains.

This is a worthwhile read, a totally balanced article of the history which brought us to this point in time.
Is an Alberta royalty review really that outrageous?

The election is over and those that should have won; won in style!  I'm pretty proud of the not so little part I played in this election no matter how thankless it is.

Times like this and for weeks to come delve into some really good jazz and let your mind rest.  I recommend  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgeF3wS0xTI

This is a balanced article which could have mentioned the reason for the Honest Socialist Government (as with any other stripe) is the voter turn out.  Norway built on socialism is turning out 70% of its population for every vote!   They have trillions banked we have zero.
Situated between a horse pasture and a narrow highway, the James River Community Hall is a small, whitewashed building that looks just right for holding Saturday-night line dances or bingo calls. It's a place of Sobey's doughnuts, late coffee, stained blue overalls, wild kids, and calloused fingers.

This is caused by cities and municipalities pushing for the lowest prices possible.  It left the door open for this kind of exploitation.  4.00 a ton for asphalt hauling is not a living wage.

GUNTER: Socialist summer camp

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is trying to convince a province that sees the energy sector as a good thing that she is someone they can trust. Meanwhile, she is trying to placate all the radicals in her caucus and on her ministers’ staffs who clearly see oil and gas as evil, and who would shut the sector down if they could. (FILE)

Alberta Wildrose leader suggests NDP is anti-pipeline

 Alberta has become a socialist summer camp, a petri dish of experimentation by lefties from across the country to come to and try out their wacky theories — especially their wacky theories about “sustainable development.”
 
The premier’s chief of staff, Brian Topp, is an Ontario New Democrat, a former national president of the NDP who ran unsuccessfully in 2012 to be the national leader following the death of Jack Layton. Topp’s campaign theme was that the NDP had drifted too far to the centre and would continue to do so if Thomas Mulcair won.
Perhaps most troubling for Albertans, Topp was also the manager of the B.C. New Democrats’ disastrous 2013 provincial campaign. Despite having a huge pre-election lead in the polls, the NDP under Adrian Dix lost big time because they promised to oppose pipelines and resource development.
Under Topp’s direction, Dix and the B.C. New Dems insisted they were not opposed to all development, just all the ones — such as the Northern Gateway pipeline and liquefied natural gas —that were currently being proposed.
Alberta Energy Minister Margaret McCuaig-Boyd’s chief of staff is another Toronto New Democrat who has also spent much of the past few years working to stop pipeline construction and oil fracking. From January to April of this year, Graham Mitchell was the head of and a lobbyist for LeadNow, an environmental group that is passionately opposed to both pipelines and the oilsands.
You might recognize the organization’s name. Two weeks ago, LeadNow led the coalition that pressured Tim Hortons to cancel ads in its stores from pipeline company Enbridge. LeadNow calls the oilsands the “toxic tar sands” and has called federal environmental reviews of pipeline projects “sham reviews.”
Two months ago, Mitchell was the head of LeadNow. Now he is the lead advisor to our energy minister; not our environment minister, our energy minister.
McCuaig-Boyd insists her staff will follow her direction. But she also confessed she had never met Mitchell before he was appointed to her staff by Premier Notley and her chief, Brian Topp. So who is likely to be leading who?
Ten of the NDP cabinet’s 12 chiefs of staff are from outside Alberta. Imagine the hue and cry from the NDP if the Tories who preceded them had brought in over 80% of their senior staffers from other jurisdictions.
Clearly these people were hired more for their knowledge of socialist doctrine than for their knowledge of Alberta.
So Notley is not trying to ride just one tiger, she is trying to ride two at once. She is trying to convince a province that sees the energy sector as a good thing that she is someone they can trust. Meanwhile, she is trying to placate all the radicals in her caucus and on her ministers’ staffs who clearly see oil and gas as evil, and who would shut the sector down if they could.
Look at her position on the Keystone XL pipeline. During the recent campaign, she told the Edmonton Sun editorial board she was in favour of it. But Tuesday in the legislature, she sounded opposed, claiming its construction would ship thousands of Alberta jobs to Texas.
This is a fine position if you have a plug-and-play refinery in a warehouse somewhere that you can set up in Alberta and have operational in a month. But what are you going to do for the next seven to 10 years before an Alberta refinery is built (assuming you can get regulatory approval past your eco-freak caucus and bureaucrats) if Keystone doesn’t go ahead? Opposing Keystone will cost thousands of Alberta jobs, too.
This is not likely to be one of those summer camps that we all come home from with fond memories.

These job cuts were predicted at the start of this fiasco.  31,000 lost while the Conservatives were "in charge" so to speak.   It is going to get a lot  worse before it gets any better.. This province is in  a lot worse shape than Prentice and his crew let on after all they were "ordained to rule" in their minds.

Debbie is absolutely wonderful with the pets! A full grooming salon; day care and still time to trim nails. My Dog (Giant Decker; Terrier) loves her. She took the time, care and attention to socialize him with the group and she knows ever one of them personally; their habits, traits and personalities in general. Remarkable! And, a pleasure to be around.
