Alberta Cabinet Shuffle

On the surface these changes appear to be a shuffle rather than a change but putting Ted Morton in finance will mean harsh changes and hard hits for Alberta and Canada. These changes mean the very worse for Albertans as right wing parties compete for the extreme.

Ted Morton was co author of the Alberta Firewall Documents. Others on this list are founders of the Wild Rose Party of Alberta.

This leaves me to consider the WRP as a child of the Ruling Conservatives and probablay finaced by Conservative Stelmach dissenters.

The Alberta Firewall is all the name implies. Provincial Police and no RCMP. Balance of payments cut drastically or done away with. Withdraw from the CPP and start an Alberta Pension plan. Do away with the Canada Health Act and totally privatize Alberta's health care (Turn it into an industry rather than a welfare pot) The list goes on but of the same tone.

The new health minister explains off the mark he has nothing to do with the health care it is in the hands of the finance minister.

There is nothing in this lineup that will do anything to royalty but reduce it and, we are all ready paying the oil companies to take the resource out of the province! 

Alberta is at 19% Can Dollar.  Except for bitumen taken in kind where we receive 48 cents a barrel Canadian, less than you would get on a bottle return.


Both BC and Saskatchewan are at 30% US dollars.


When you figure on the advanced electricity and utility charges we are indeed paying for the resource to be taken from the province.  We end up with nothing!


For you who voted Conservative; you deserve this!   For those of you who didn't bother to vote; you deserve this. 

For the rest of us it is a beating we won't recover from!
