verynfortunate  for Notley and Her partymthat they lost the last election.

unfortunate for albertans.... didnt ndp have a program to move slowly to the new energy economy?

They were doing a lot of things that needed to be done. She was very pragmatic balancing new investments and supporting oil and gas. 

I don't trust the NDP much, but she was doing good and keeping them from going full on loonies left. We need more politicians in this country like her.

Probably safer to just never bring it up again.

Yea....yea....worst part is I got into a scrap with the wife about this the other day. She's a big Trudeau fan. Now I have to go home today and admit defeat.

Unearthed - actual footage of Speedflex and 17to85 discussing Alberta politics:

The RCMP have charged the leader of the Canadian Nationalist Party after posting an allegedly anti-Semitic video on YouTube.

Police have charged 29-year-old Travis Patron of Redvers, Sask. with willful promotion of hate in connection to a video titled Beware the Parasitic Tribe. The video referred to "inside manipulators" who infiltrate media and the central bank.

RCMP began investigating after the video was flagged by the Canadian Anti-Hate Network in June 2019.

Since then, police have received four additional reports of new videos and flyers issued by Patron. Police are still investigating those reports.

The Canadian Nationalist Party was founded in 2017 and received official party status in 2019.

What an asshat.

Huh... I stumbled across this and thought I would share.  

 

I feel that nit-picking the bad stuff to make a case, always leads to a flimsy case. 

Its like the bar he is holding Canada to is tantamount to utopia... of course we have our skeletons... and of course we still have a ways to go on a great many things,  but Canada is a great country. So... **** him and his cherrypicking **** opinion.

He's not completely wrong.  There really isn't much point in Americans moving to Canada.

He is so far off on trying to compare America's issues with police brutality and racism with Canada it's annoying when people like him are trying to create something out of nothing.  

Yes don't come to Canada because we had residential schools and clearly the country hasn't changed in 50-100 years when that happened. Don't come to Canada because clearly this Country has not embraced a massive amount of different cultures and places like Winnipeg never celebrate these cultures with things like Folklorama.  

Police brutality in Canada is so bad that amazingly relations with the First Nations is at an all time high and the amount of Police related deaths is at an all time low,  but no this uneducated guy knows better because he's desperate for attention.  

I say we deport that guy to somewhere far away where he can experience what a truly bad country is like.

Nice rant.  I still see absolutely no point in Americans moving to Canada.

Outside of the inferior weather Canada is better in every other way.   Higher quality of living,  much safer,  lower cost of living,  health care,  outside of Quebec everywhere else is friendly to all races and cultures,  better football, cheaper  and much higher level of education, higher quality and standards in our foods/pollution/overall health.  

Outside of the nice weather..  what reasons would anyone want to live in the States is the better question?

We as a country still have much to do in confronting what was done and is still often being done to first nations people, and other minorities as well. What we are doing different than the US is not pretending that systemic discrimination does not exist, and we are not threatening to kill people to prove that. 

We are a work in progress, no question, but there are a lot of other places in the world that are way worse.

 LONDON (Reuters) - Volvo’s entire car lineup will be fully electric by 2030, the Chinese-owned company said on Tuesday, joining a growing number of automakers planning to phase out fossil-fuel engines by the end of this decade.

ten years.

tipping point might be a lot earlier than oil companies hope.

at this point, basing a Provincial economy on fosssil fuels is  negligence.

I suspect that we ultimately will have a hybrid system. Electrical/hybrid vehicles work well and will get better but in high population density areas. I cannot see a viable alternative to diesel and gasoline vehicles for long-haul semis and for people in rural areas. The good news (for some) is that these changes will suppress petroleum production and prices for the foreseeable future. There will have to be a network of charging stations and battery recycling depots, but this should be good news for hydroelectric producers like Manitoba and Quebec.

maybe hydrogen. also fast charging.

but battery tech is changing quite  fast.

There is a short haul airline in BC that is swithcing the fleet to electric. one in service now, and it saves money over ice, which is the main reason for the change.

Manitoba's government is limiting debate over 19 new bills by not making any text available for opposition parties or the public to review, say two separate groups trying to expose it and prevent it from happening.

Aside from the titles of the bills, the public has no idea what's in them, months after they were tabled in the legislature.

"This is unprecedented, undemocratic, undermines the intent of our political system and sets a dangerous precedent for future governments," says an open letter from the grassroots group Communities Not Cuts Manitoba.

Current rules of the legislature do not expressly forbid bills from being introduced in this way, which is shocking and needs to be changed, the group says.

The present process severely limits the ability of opposition MLAs and the public to engage with the content of the bills before they move from first reading to the next stage of the legislative process.

The 19 bills are set to go to second reading later this month.
