Ah yes, the Kenney strategy. Worked out so well for him. Let's see how this plays out for her.

Calling up Film & TV productions to give them crap for requiring vaccinations? Great strategy...

She's now finally realizing that the moderates are the key to her survival. Talking #### about ridiculous ideas and right-wing populist schlock only goes so far. Too bad she's damaged the middle ground so badly, now she's doing a Hollywood Hogan-style NWO turn on her anti-vaxx base.

They shouldn't be surprised though, this is the same power-hungry Judas who crossed the floor to the PC's when to gain political points for her own career and self-interests. And it cost her big time.

When someone tells you who they are, believe them when they show you.

skimming through twitter (reporters), but I am sure its online, e.g. try the youralberta youtube for example (government's youtube channel). Or watch the news...

Flipped entirely on human rights
Personal calls on any type of hint of vaccination requirements
not acknowledging/getting grumpy when asked her about her mistakes - as per what she, herself, said in scripted remarks during her tv address.

And earlier, her house chair saying focused on caucus priorities, and anything on vaccination etc to ask Premier Smith directly.

Its been...something.

Telling Hollywood crews that they can't have grants unless they remove vaccination requirements is only going to cause them to go elsewhere, just as Alberta is starting to get a foothold in the film & tv industry. Their talent is too valuable and expensive to risk shutdowns due to covid.

Some events may go forward because they need the grant money, but larger more well-financed events will just skip Alberta the same as concerts do with the Saddledome.

If it wasn't obvious already, Danielle is bad for the economy.

Well the title alone suggests that they're increasing support for vulnerable Albertans! That by itself should ensure Fuzz's UCP vote!!

There's a lot going on here, to say the least, but the Minister of Red Tape Reduction must just be doing contortions right now: yes, you want a Minister....to what now? No you really want the Premier to call Jane Doe, event organizer for ABC-25 person company? Uh. Yes, ok, post-pone the cabinet meeting, and schedule these calls in, got it...

This whole BC hates Alberta thing is a totally fabricated victim complex. The reality is that a ton of British Columbians are transplanted Albertans, have relatives in Alberta, or don't really care much about Alberta. Frankly, it is bizarre to hear you mention it.

In my experience, those ones are the worst. Last ones who were here said "this place is such an ugly dump, I don't know how anyone could choose to live here." So no, it's not fabricated. I've heard it plenty.

There are foolish idiots in all corners of the world, sadly.

For the record, I'm a transplanted Albertan. I love BC, will probably live here forever, but have nothing but good things to say about Alberta and the majority of Albertans, notwithstanding the fact that there are foolish idiots everywhere.
