    Fucking Awesome!!!!! Make Alberta Great again… we are hard workers the ppl bitching are just looking for the easy way.. get out there and work pay your way, make a life, cause thats what Albertans do! Or move back to Quebec

  2. We were getting a pipeline eventually anyways. Kenney has exactly jack and shit to do with that.

    [2]
  3. Here’s what I want to know… what is going to happen to the low income families under a UCP government? Not all of us are living off of assistance, some of us have careers. I have a very good job but still fall under low income because I am raising a child on my own. I know the NDP put in an Alberta child benefit of about $1,000 per year. It’s not much but it still helps out a lot. Will we be losing this? I also want to know what will happen to those of us who happen to have careers in the education field? I’m not a teacher but I’m in the field. Freezing spending is an awful choice because teachers need EA support in their inclusive classrooms.
    I also have concern for the young people in the LGBTQ community that are likely scared and feeling let down.
    The other thing I want to know is how exactly people think Kenney will get the pipelines up and running when the big one (trans mountain) is owned by the federal government. He can push for it but it doesn’t mean it will happen. I also think we won’t be scrapping the carbon tax, that was a federally legislated tax. Until Trudeau goes, we will be paying a carbon tax.

      Shane Nagorski but the NDP plan brings us out of the deficit one year later than the UCP and their projections were more realistic than the UCP’s. I don’t understand why the NDP hatred when their numbers look nearly identical without the overly ambitious projections

      [1]
    • Curtis Wilson don’t take my words out of context. I am FULLY aware that becoming a welder requires work. So does becoming a teacher. Or a nurse. I also know that the oil field hires people that don’t even have their tickets and aren’t finished school, and those guys are there, flicking switches. Making $35 an hour plus LOA. I’ve heard all about how easy it can be. But I get it, days are long, and you work outside and it can be tough work. My point is, if everyone else has to take cuts, so should you. It seems like in your minds, everyone else should dig our province out of debt but you.

      [1]
    • Shane Nagorski they want their jobs back. Understandable. They also want them back at their former insanely high rate of pay. Why is it only the low income and teachers and healthcare who have to be willing to take cuts? Why is is our job to ensure we fix the provinces debt? That’s my main point here. If I’m going to be losing $1000 a year to help pay back the debt, or teachers now have to have 27+ kids in a class with no assistance and multiple needs in order to pay it back why is the oil field being left untouched with the debt payback?

      [1]
    • Leah Oliveira I know someone who does not have their tickets who went out on a job for a couple months and told me he sat around flicking switches for a welder all day. Please don’t misunderstand, I know that these jobs require training. But so do so many others in other careers that UCP supporters are insisting should have cuts made to make up for the debt in the province. My point here is why shouldn’t the oilfield be taking cuts as well to make sure the provincial debt is taken care of since that SEEMS to be everyone’s argument for voting for Kenney. Surely welders going down to $40 per hour from $45 would help the economy. But insisting it be taken away from low income families? Whether you agree with people living on assistance or whatever they still have kids to feed. Those kids still have to be educated. By teachers who need to have safe classrooms and help for struggling students.

      [1]
    • Candice Rochelle all these programs are just causing the province to go further in debt… Spending money that the province is not earning… Yup social programs are gonna take a hit… But the path we were on was not sustainable reflected in our Provincial credit report and debt projections

    • Candice Rochelle

      [0]
    • Shane Nagorski well… perhaps the oil workers shouldn’t be making upwards of $45/hour… if classrooms and teachers and single parents and low income families and nurses all have to expect cuts maybe so do the oil workers. It is unreal to me that someone without even a red seal certification makes around $35 per hour flicking a switch for a welder. Don’t get me wrong I think their work is valuable but… if the rest of us have to take cuts maybe round it out, make it fair. Cuts for everyone.

      [0]
    • Candice Rochelle they have taken cuts… Their jobs. I am not in the oil and gas industry FYI. But Billions of dollars of business/investment left this province and we need someone to work to get that back. Business and corporations leave when it is no longer viable for them to do business here.

    • Candice Rochelle I deleted my comment because I felt I misread what you initially said. I thought you were simplifying what’s required of a welder, not a non ticketed oilfield worker.

      Now, I didnt work on an oilfield so I dont know what involved as a labourer. I assume you did because of your description of their work. Anyone that worked up there disagree?

      [0]
    • Curtis Wilson I don’t work in the oilfield but I know many people who do. I get it, tough hours and all that, but if unticketed workers can make that much money what’s to say they shouldn’t be helping pay back the provincial debt by taking cuts?

      [0]
    • Candice Rochelle I am not sure where you are getting your information… They do not have jobs to go back to… The jobs are gone because the companies/projects are gone? Many skilled people are taking jobs just to have one.

      [0]
    • Shane Nagorski then they should do what everyone else has to, find a new normal. Find a new job (like you said they are) and adjust their lifestyle and spending. But don’t put paying back provincial debt only on those accessing social programs, teachers and healthcare workers. There’s still lots in the oilfield making probably quadruple what I make in a month and maybe they need to take a hit and help pay it all back. If you’re going to crap on one demographic why not crap on all of them?

    • Candice Rochelle as a welder I’ll tell you this, our jobs are dangerous. Its not a simple as it’s cold out and long days so pay us more… I’m not sure who makes 35 a hour to flick a switch? A 3rd year welder might get paid 35 a hour but they are doing alot more then flicking said switches lol

    • Candice Rochelle you need to spend 6 months flicking a switch as you call it, in -40 in February, for a 12-14 hour day, eating a dirty sandwich, are you required to spend 300 -400 dollars on one set of FR cloths that don’t last very long when they get burned from sparks when he is “just flicking a switch” or have you ever had to crawl around up to your knees in mud and water in below zero temps? Do you leave your job to go home every night to your family, most of these guys that just hang around a flick a switch don’t! Most are hours away from home and if they are pipelining they work 6 days on and one off, one day off doesn’t give you time to go home , so the may be gone for months, that’s just some of the sacrifices they make for there $35 per hour, you people that know fuck all about what these guys that “just flick a switch” do piss me off! You would have a social media uproar if one of those guys said why should I give up five cents for a teachers aid that just sits on their fat ass and looks a students!

      Candice Rochelle um honey the oil field have. My brother works on the rigs and has taken over a $20 paycut, just to keep working n is never going back up My spouse is in Manitoba because that is the only industrial project happening right now anywhere, working for $8/hr less n my spouse is a red seal journeymen. Top of his field n he never made $45/hr. These people sacrifice time away from their families n home n battle the elements which are much harsher than in the city. Plus they have lost all double time n incentives to even work out of town n now time and a half is leaving and more pay cuts. Since oil crashed these people have taken pay cuts, lost jobs, homes n families and now you say they should lose more. What, they have nothing left n it’s never coming back.
      Give your head a shake. Time you need to lose a few things n take a major pay cut

    • Candice Rochelle I agree with what your saying to a degree. We pay high taxes. But we aren’t paid by the government. So your asking us to “donate” money? Or pay even more taxes? The difference between us and the jobs you described is the danger. I dont think oilfield workers make enough for what we go through and risks we take. Many being away from families. That said I dont think teachers make enough either since they are helping build the future generations….

    • Nick Finnie Nick Finnie says:

      Candice Rochelle I’d really like to know where your friend was working. Nobody pays helper 35 an hour to “flick a switch”.
      We run all day. Lift a machine that weighs roughly 40 lbs 60(on a slow day) to sometimes over a hundred. While dealing with brutal heat or cold. No to mention the infinite things that could wrong and kill us. If it was easy, everyone would do it. But it’s not. We(oilfield) workers deserve our high rate of pay. Lots of times we dont get breaks during the day while we are doing things. Or we work through them to get caught up on other tasks.

      We could be killed pretty much at any time. All it takes is for someone else to fuck up.

    • Nick Finnie Nick Finnie says:

      And just to touch on the family thing that Leah brought up. I work out of town. I was gone for 3 months before I had a long enough break to go home and see my son. And the reality is, I’m not the only one out here sacrificing time with friend and family to get these jobs done. We deserve to be compensated for our time. How many men and women have missed firsts, birthdays, anniversaries because they work these jobs. I love my career but I also love my son. I’m going to do everything I can to provide him opportunities i never had. And if it means missing a birthday or bmx race or hockey game so that he can play all those sports he loves, then so be it.

    • Tara Oxner please do not call me “honey”, this is an adult conversation happening and I feel it has been respectful on all sides.
      You suggest I should take a major pay cut? I make barely over $2,200 a month at my job and have a child to support. My job is already at a ridiculously low rate of pay. And my industry will be cut, Kenney has made that pretty obvious. It is quite possible in the next couple years that my job will be cut. And I’m educated, but the field I am passionate about isn’t a great paying field. I’m not denying what you are saying. I am not saying that oilfield haven’t taken cuts, I know many have lost jobs. And many want to get back to work. But many want to get back to work at their former wages and will be some ticked if they can’t be making that. It just seems like many (not all) oilfield workers seem to think that they should be making more money than everyone else and don’t seem to care about other industries. Healthcare workers, teachers and low income people are all being told “well… it’s gotta come from you, tough luck…” I have heard that “oil workers can’t feed their families and have to choose between bills or groceries”. Which sucks. It absolutely sucks, no doubt about that. But now that your jobs have been potentially promised back to you, you seem to feel that it’s ok for everyone else to not be able to feed their families? After you’ve lived it?

      [0]
    • Nick Finnie and no one is saying that you don’t deserve good pay for that, I am simply saying that the son you love so dearly deserves to be taught in a classroom where the class isn’t over crowded, with a teacher who has help to deal with the multitude of needs in the room. The NDP had projected similar budgets to the UCP that didn’t involve cutting things like this. I am not saying your work isn’t valued, it is, it’s a necessity. So are teachers and healthcare workers.

      [0]
    • Leah Oliveira nope not asking you to donate money, but I’m just saying if the theory is that everyone else should be willing to take cuts why is the oilfield not willing to? I agree your job is dangerous. I am absolutely not saying that this is not worthy of being a higher paid job but when a welders helper who doesn’t have his tickets makes $15,000 in like 6-7 weeks that seems a little excessive.

      [0]
    • Candice Rochelle you do understand that the higher wage he earns for the more dangerous job he is potentially risking his life to do while also being separated from his family for extended periods essentially puts more money into the coffers to pay for teachers and nurses and such. He could stay home and work at McDonald’s and then we would lose a whole teachers wage from the lost income tax.

  8. Positive opinions. So first off my bias, throughout the election I was bouncing back and forth between my NDP CA didate and my AP candidate so in general I don’t like the UCP.

    A positive of the UCP is that they will increase the employment rate amongst teens.

    However there are a lot of negatives to the UCP, just as there are negatives to all parties.

    • Todd Young Todd Young says:

      Brodie Brenna he is directly responsible for the high unemployment rate amongst teens. Tfws…..remember them? Also the reason the current govt had to increase min wage. Bring low skilled people here to work min wage jobs where min wage isn’t enough to survive.

      [0]
    • Brodie Brenna except paying them less that the now established minimum wage. Why should kids under 18 doing the same job as adults but at a lesser wage. Most are still at the same risk of workplace injury as an adult. I know I was a 17 year old kid who got hurt on the job making $7.50/hr as an adult in the same store making 2-3 times that as an adult. It’s not like WCB treats you nicer because of a kid. 17 or 37 nobody wants to be held responsible for a workplace injury.

      [0]
    • Todd, Mandy…. Notice how I carefully worded my thing for the “positives”

      I don’t agree with lowering minimum wage for youths at all and when OP asks for positive opinions this was the only “positive” opinion I could come up with.

      [0]
    • Todd Young the tfw program was there to fill massive voids in our employment pool. Business had to close their doors outside of operating hours due to no staff.
      I was a hiring manager and could barely get people to show up for the interview let alone show up for work.

      The TFWs filled these vacancies. Those who hired then had to go through a pretty involved application process and there were wage requirements also, and it wasnt lower than any other employee. My one hotel had to up their rate for ALL housekeepers because they had to pay a hirer wage to the tfws.

      Our current unemployment is a result of LESS JOBS. Yes, maybe had they not come in the first place it may not be as bad, but hind sight is 20/20 and we can only react to our current situation, no?

      [0]
    • Mandy Hartman they should be paid less because those jobs are unskilled jobs. They are for those with no experience. This will make the labour cost less for these businesses and will encourage them to hire younger people. I think most kids would rather a 13 dollar a job than no job at all.

      They also generally dont have much for expenses so in turn dont really require a “living wage”

      [0]
    • Charlene Piche why though? Before the minimum increase youth workers were considered the same. Sure they’d like the job, most people want jobs. Can you really explain why they deserve less for doing the exact same job as someone who might only be a year older than them? Many kids such as myself were saving for university. Not everyone has parents who pay for their education or want to accumulate huge student debt. Many youth in low income households often work to help out their families too.

      I should also mention my car insurance that I needed to get to my minimum wage high school job still had to pay for that. As soon as I graduated, like many kids, I was on the hook for rent too.

      [0]
    • Mandy Hartman I already answered your questions as to why

      And saving for university and paying rent as a teen? Lol let’s pretend that’s the norm for a second, it’s still 13 bucks an hour!! If they want to go to school that’s still a substantial pay to do so. You’re talking 2 bucks an hour difference.

      Ffs, I had to take a 7 dollar and hour pay cut last year because it’s the only job I could find as there are very few out there. And i have a mortgage. No ones crying for me…..so Sorry if a teens 2 buck sacrifice is not that tragic to me….

      [0]
    • Todd Young Todd Young says:

      Charlene Piche the program was brutally taken advantage of. Same as the skilled trades. Take a look around. I have an 18 yr old daughter who has applied for jobs galore since she turned 15. Had 2 interviews and 1 part time, seasonal (Christmas) retail job. January came and she was done. There are no “low skilled” jobs for our teens to work because that program provided an over abundance of low skilled workers.
      Currently she is doing some upgrading before attending college next year….still doesn’t get a response. Now she had spent her workable teen years,unable to gain employment and now that she is 18 she has next to zero experience and there is cheaper options available.

      Twisted!!!

      Melissa Vandermey Have you ever looked at how Klein got us debt free? Corporate tax was at 15%, small business tax was at 8 or 9%, we had crown corporations that were sold, not to mention a much higher oil price. We lost a lot of doctors and nurses because of cuts to health care. There was a massive shortage of beds in hospitals. The Grey Nuns was almost closed. Forget beds for patients that needed mental health care and we were paying health care premiums. Massive cuts to education spending.

      I’m not saying that we don’t need some spending restraint, but we don’t have all the income that Klein had, and Kenney is cutting corporate tax by 40%. How is he going to get us out of debt without massive cuts again?

    • Alan F. Alan F. says:

      Sam Douglas Uhh, because that’s what we call society and a country? We all take responsibility for each other, and pay taxes to increase everyone’s wellbeing by building infrastructure and other things. You may require a long-term stay in a hospital. You may have children that you want to get a decent education. Society pays for that eventuality, as you pay for someone else’s.

      How is oil going to flow any faster? The NEB approved the expansion February 2019. There are going to be appeals. If we turn off the taps to BC, they can get their oil from elsewhere if they really want. Eastern Canada doesn’t want our oil, the US doesn’t, BC doesn’t and if we can’t get it overseas who is going to buy it.

      As for jobs, if we are talking about jobs in the oilfield, a lot of the jobs ended because expansion projects were ending. 40% of the jobs that were lost are now automated. Oil price is still low and that has nothing to do with our government so why would anyone expand?

      I really do hope there is an actual plan to get people to invest in our province, other than just slashing corporate taxes 40%.

      What are you smoking?
      The Conservatives had 70 seats before that election in 2015. After the election the NDP had 53 seats, wild rose (a conservative party) 21 seats, Progressive conservatives 10 seats.
      Now the conservatives have 63 and NDP 24.
      How is that less than half? They damn near won back ALL the seats they lost in 2015. There’s only 87 seats total.

    • Traci Grams Traci Grams says:

      Actually you’re the one smoking something….
      prior to the 2015 orange crush the NDP held 4 seats. FOUR. PCs held 61 and WR held 17 for a combined Conservative hold of 78 seats total.
      After the 2015 election results the NDP held 54 seats. The PCs held 9 and the WR held 21 for a combined Conservative hold of 30.
      That means the Conservatives lost 48 seats! FOURTY-EIGHT.
      Following thus far? Now, as of TODAY the UCP (Combined Conservatives) hold 63 seats. Which is still 15 less than prior to 2015… (in a province with more constituencies because of the new boundaries – by the way) so they’re still short. AND the NDP has closed that gap by retaining 20 of their additional seats! They hold 24. So nice try…. there is still a 35 seat swing there bud.

  30. Wonderful! Its a majority government, meaning that most of Alberta (Except for Edmonton for some unknown reason) that voted with our wallets. We could not afford another 4 years of the NDP. Those claiming hospitals and school funding are being cut off, or that Mr Kenney is Racist or Homophobic clearly did not take the time to read up on their mandates, or listen to what they were planning. As a business owner, I was able to consider opening up another pt position – knowing a stronger economy, and a drop in taxes is on the way. Thus creating many other business owners to do the same. This is already creating a stronger economy, and more jobs. Its going to be a wonderful next 4 years.

    • Allie Heppner You do realize that we have trade agreements that force us to buy Saudi oil, right? And that the eastern provinces import it because they aren’t equipped to refine the bitumen coming out of Alberta? Saudi oil comes out of the ground practically clean enough to pump into your car, comparing it to alberta oil is like comparing apples to oranges. AND EVEN if they could refine it, how would we get it there? You must have seen the derailments being caused by moving it by train, since you’re so well-informed? Saudi oil comes by tankers, right to ports in New Brunswick. Easier and more cost-effective to have-not provinces. If you have a problem with this, go talk to Trudeau about the energy east pipeline.

      And Kim Davis, since you mention equalization payments, I’m sure you’re aware that the budget for them is reviewed annually, and based on each province’s spending. And you must know that we’re still dishing them out solely because, despite our own economic distress, we are still the highest income and highest spending province in the country. Kenney can’t “hold a referendum” to have equalization payments eliminated, but I’m sure that isn’t one of the reasons why you voted for him. It’s a constitutional act, which means that in order to eliminate them we would need the support of 7 provinces and a minimum 50% yes vote. Give me a reason why provinces who are receiving money from us would vote to stop receiving money from us. AND EVEN if by any snowball’s chance in hell those equalization payments would be eliminated, you know that for the provinces receiving them, this money is the only thing guaranteeing them a livable wage… right? All of these broke tradesmen who would then not be making enough money to feed themselves would do what… Surely not come to Alberta and flood our job market seeking work at a livable wage, further eliminating more opportunity in this province. Right?

When she made that comment it was about racist groups and people in Alberta. Specifically rebel media and groups like soldier of Odin . While taking about the racists she said they were sewer rats and I have to agree 100 percent, that if a person is racist they can crawl back to the sewers where they belong.

    If you are in the top 1%, GREAT NEWS! You can now basically get away with murder and the politicians will legislate in your favour while the police look the other way.

    If you are not in the top 1%, you get to now pay more for things, (like gas, heating, health care, dental, tolls roads, education, food, etc, etc,) because the already low income tax rate we have will be slashed even lower which means the rich will pay even less in taxes.

    The pokitical commentators say that Kenney will lose us the pipeline because he will cancel the carbon tax (so Trudeau can swoop in and give us the federal one, which puts the money in the federal coffers) and because of Kenney removing the emissions cap which is part of the accord. If you like toll roads and health care premiums and cuts to health care (remember when Klein did that and there was an exodus of trained medical staff to the states and other places, leaving a shortage here), and if you want your kids to learn “for the achievement test” rather than for good learning, then you might be happy. I can’t wait to say “I told you so”. Unfortunately many people voted because of Facebook hype rather than doing their own research. Look and see how Ford is well on his way to destroying Ontario–which will likely mean Ontario will vote Liberal again in the fall election. Look at Ontario (Kenney and Ford are buddies), and that may well be Alberta.

Her “embarrassing cousin” finally said enough is enough and let’s get someone in here who will fight to get ppl working again, fight to get families back on stable ground who are close to losing everything and stop the careless spending with this apparent never ending bank account that NDP believed they had. The money maker of this province is our energy sector, and anyone who tries to deny this has their heads in the clouds. Everyone says “Kenney can’t get pipes in the ground that have been denied”. Yes he can. It’ll take work. Getting bills reversed. Coming to deals with the natives to cross their land etc. Its not that it can’t be done it’s that no effort was ever put in because notley was completely anti oil and gas. Ucp will be a huge boost to the province. It won’t happen over night though. He’s got one hell of a mess to clean up first.

They sat back and just kept saying their hands were tied, they can’t control the price of oil, blah blah blah. Useless is one word to sum it all up. Notley dumped unheard of amounts of money into health care and everyone praised her for it. Just one problem…. what exactly did she help? Alberta is putting the most money into health care than any other province for the last 2 or 3 years yet we have the longest wait times still! And they’ve actually gotten worse not better.

      It took Albertans 8 years to pay off $35 billion under Ralph Klein. And that was with a partial rebound in oil prices.

      $71 billion will take Albertans 2 DECADES to pay off. The interest annually in that debt will be $3.6 billion. $3.6 billion that could have gone into social programs, schools or hospitals.

It’s great that private healthcare is an option but I guarantee that a private hospital will not be built and will then bog the public sector down. I also think the public will lose doctors due to the big bucks.

    As for education he wants to find out why class sizes are so big. No study needed there they are big because we are not building enough schools. And why are we not building schools well that’s because there is nobody and nothing to pay for them but you know what let’s launch an investigation and find out what’s going on while we freeze education while my sons money for an EA help in the classroom goes towards the schools waxing their gyms as an example. I had to fight for my son to get his EA and was told by the school that there are 25 children whom are more severe and they get to share 6 EAs in total.

    And I don’t know about anybody else but roads are crap here at least Notley was putting money into it with the carbon tax. But everybody was pissed about that too because now they have to pay for a tax oh my God we pay the lowest taxes in the country we’re not able to set aside ourselves to help the environment while building ourselves some infrastructure my God for myself and I know others they can barely see the paint on the road shortly after the month of rain and definitely not the winter but driving through a blizzard in Saskatchewan and Manitoba I can see the lines on the road. FYI I see 16/20

    We need the pipelines!!! And I’m not saying to get rid of them I’m saying that we have to learn how not to depend on them. right now Alberta is going through a crappy situation.

    This was not caused by Notley (she didn’t light a match) Fort McMurray starting on fire was the cause of climate change (so they say) it was the beginning and the end of Notley. Because if it wasn’t for a stupid celebrity flying over the oil fields spouting his crap this may not have become as big as it did.

  66. Im worried about my special needs daughter, and of course other vulnerable people who need assistance. Im willing to wait and see if there will actually be cuts to healthcare/education that will affect her and others like her. These people cant just go and get a job, they cant even complain or fight for their needs, they dont even have a voice for themselves. To take away from people like this is absolutely absurd, im willing to wait and see before making judgment about the new Premier.

  68. The best years in the province were under the conservatives. We had a balanced budget and every adult in Alberta even got a cheque one year of sharing the wealth of the province. Election is done majority has won by a landslide it is time to stop complaining start living and help rebuild the province from 4 years of economic carnage

    Alberta is going to suffer greatly under Kenny. He will give the illusion he is dying to fix things, but only the rich will actually benefit under his leadership.

  78. He wants to be Prime Minister. He is removing emission caps and the carbon tax to make sure we don’t get it twinned. That will make Ontario and Quebec happy and that is what he needs to win a federal election

    Brennan Smyth It’s less about the carbon tax–since we will get the federal one, but more about K removing the emissions cap, which is against the climate accord.
