Rather than writing my own blog this week, I’m going to provide a link to an excellent article that should be read by every Albertan, and every Canadian, and every American, and every awake citizen in the Western world. It examines the stark contrast between the intellectually chaotic and unrealistic world of left-wing Progressivist policy, against a carefully researched and analyzed platform that should actually be a feature of every election campaign.
The article provides the most authoritative analysis of the recent Alberta election that you are ever likely to read. It’s 5 to 10 minutes long, and worth every second. Author, Mark Milke is an economist’s economist, and it was brilliant of Jason Kenney to get Dr. Milke and other recognized experts involved in developing the United Conservative Party’s platform.
Incidentally, since winning the election, the Kenney government has tasked an expert panel to develop a roadmap to get Alberta’s economy back on track. It is led by former Saskatchewan NDP, yes, that’s NDP Minister of Finance, Janice McKinnon, who in the 1990s guided Saskatchewan from fiscal ruin, to balanced and surplus budgets. Watch the link. No matter whether you are a Kenney fan or not, you must admit it is a brilliant managerial and political move!
Have a great weekend!
