    Great...
    Schools are a f*cking germ farm at the best of times let alone these days! It's like every time the kid comes home from school I wonder if he's really the monkey from Outbreak!

    Can confirm, my wife's school hasn't received anything for this back to school plan. No masks, face shield, hand sanitizer...nothing.

    NDP tied with the UCP in the latest Angus Reid poll.

    I really didn't think the NDP had a hope in hell of taking back power in the province but the UCP sure have pissed off A LOT of people.

    It's really disappointing to see that a moderate party hasn't stepped up to try and find a strong middle ground. If they had wanted to have a chance, this was it, but taking too long likely makes it a true left vs. right election against next time.

    The Alberta NDP party moved significantly toward the middle once they were in power. They were portrayed as anti-oil. But Notley got a carbon tax in place supported oil producers, bought rail cars to move Alberta oil and pushed the Trans Mountain Pipeline project.

    She would still be Premier without that carbon tax that she never campaigned on in '15. Without that mistake we wouldn't be saddled with Kenney right now. And she could have at least attempted some form of fiscal responsibility. I dislike both of them, tbh. I hope the AP can find a good leader in the next year.

    I've heard that so many time from moderate conservatives and it annoys the hell out of me. Like seriously, people sold out our future to remove a carbon tax that goes into Alberta's taxation revenue knowing full well that it only gets replaced by a carbon tax that goes into Canada's taxation revenue. It's ridiculous really.

    I agree on AP. Wish they would have used this complete failure by the UCP to bring their party to the table, but they've been completely absent.

    The job creation party literally subtracted jobs with their carbon tax swap. Well done, well done...

    The school district my kids are part of, has been told to ration hand sanitizer until more shipments are procured. Yes said district has had covid cases.

    I blame Notley entirely for that. Albertans were against a carbon tax. She knew that. She intended to implement one, but knew damned well that if it was part of her '15 platform Jim Prentice would have won the election. So, she said nothing, even denying she would do it, and then brought it in anyway. If she had been competent she would not have done so, knowing that Trudeau would do it and then be the bad buy. Instead, she cut her nose off to spite her face, like the fool she is.

    I also loved how she waited until the Stamps and Eskimos were playing the 2015 western final to announce her carbon tax in an attempt to have the announcement fly under the radar.
