Alberta is an extraordinary spot for green innovation

Albertans ought to inquire as to why the entirety of our oil fix organizations have not gotten into green innovation. There are billions of dollars to be made there. These oil organizations have a magnificent chance to make gobs of cash on green innovation. For what reason would they say they are not building electric vehicles? Anyway, Alberta is an ideal spot for green innovation. An exceptionally prepared workforce, loads of land, heaps of daylight, bunches of wind. You may have noticed that Warren Buffett, the virtuoso speculator as previously putting resources into green innovation in Alberta.

For what reason are instructors the first to go?

Re: Province places schools in a press, Nov. 6

I might want to know why the Calgary School Boards first line of protection, whenever they have spending issues, is to fire instructors. Without a doubt they have organization staff that can be diminished in the midst of spending decreases as opposed to quickly declare that homeroom instructors will be cut from staff. Their mantra is by all accounts they consider understudies their first need. Doesn’t fit with their activities. This truly resembles a panic strategy that has worn ragged.

Albertans are distraught about false reverence

Re: Separation should cost Albertans, letter, Nov. 7

I am not for parting our territory from the remainder of Canada , yet would prefer to see Albertans investigate the Canadian Pension Plan just as different choices. Anyway it is fascinating to peruse that the author from Mission City advocates for the national government to guarantee rights to a hallway through Alberta, yet Alberta would be denied the equivalent for the Trans Mountain Expansion. It is that kind of bad faith that gets Albertans pants in a tangle.

The false reverence of Jason Kenney

Jason Kenney’s first spending plan is both shamelessly ideological and extraordinarily deceptive. I have confidence in monetary reasonability, yet the anticipated blend of slices to bleeding edge administrations and expense decreases for companies goes a long ways past judiciousness; it sells out the insensitive, advantaged belief system of the UCP. The most grievous model is de-ordering AISH. I can’t pass on how disgusting and cutthroat this move is. Individuals getting AISH can’t work. In an industrialist framework, introduced on a person’s capacity to contribute barely characterized financial worth, these are the most powerless individuals in our general public. AISH is as of now a concession; the fundamental yearly sum is $3,293 beneath the 2017 Canada low pay measure (LIM) of neediness. This is the place the false reverence comes in. Jason Kenney has since quite a while ago contradicted de-ordering, or purported “section creep,” and did as such in the very pages of this paper. His relinquishment of that position to focus on those most in need is disturbing.
