I had Dall-E create a visual representation of a "big cabinet with lots of knobs", and frankly, i think I'll take this one over Smith's.

Please, read the whole thread. Just sad, depressing, frustrating and infuriating. Can we please stop sending tax dollars to religious schools? It's embarrassing to know I fund these people, and their bigoted repression, justifying it through religion. How is it 2023 and these schools still exist? What's wrong with people? Stop sending your kids there. Please. Enough already.

Did Lagrange get reelected? If so, I hope that she is not reappointed, the education system is such a mess right now.

Ya, she did. I suspect she goes back to Education for some continuity, and I don't think Smith has anything against her.

Our new Minister of Mental Health and Addiction - Dan Williams, everyone.



Sometimes it feels like we are being punked.

LOL. Between this and Lagrange as Health Minister (who is a member of Alberta Pro-Life), it seems we live in the darkest timeline.

25 Cabinet members for a province of 4 1/2 million is way to many. Maybe half that number. But we've always had a bloated cabinet so I shouldn't be surprised.

Nate Horner has experience as a rancher, emergency medical responder, and politician. He has a science degree in agriculture, should make a great Finance Minister. /greentext

Poor Rebecca Schulz isn't going to have anything to do by the end of her term.

This is more appropriate for the Alberta election thread but it's been closed.

Voter turnout actually dropped from the last election despite the record numbers of advance voting. And a pretty sizeable drop too, from 67.5% to 59.5%. But still ended up being 2nd highest in the past 5 elections.

I think, as a lot of people suspected, a lot of Red Tories and other voters who would have otherwise voted PC/UCP in the past stayed home rather than hold their noses and vote NDP.

Then let them lay in their bed of roses, with the thorns stabbing them in the back.

The Breakdown @TheBreakdown

Lagrange is health minister…

Anti-abortion, money to constituents for mask contracts, acting health minister while shandy was on vacation (and who let cases explode) is now health minister.

Oh Alberta…

No - we haven't. Notley's first cabinet after election was 12. After the last cabinet shuffle prior to the 2019 election it was 19, which was still smaller then the PC cabinet at the dissolution of the previous legislature.

The Breakdown @TheBreakdown

The entire province - “Why would Danielle Smith think spending taxpayer money on flying in “extra” arson investigators is a good idea? Where could she possibly get that from?”

Smith’s “Locals” page…

Berta.

Where the dog is simultaneously eating it’s own tail as it wags itself.

(From Danielle Smith’s “Locals” page… why does she even still have that?)

Wait - Lagrange is anti-abortion? And she's our health minister?

Goddamnit. The UCP continually sets the bar high for setting the bar low.
