Been that way for years Joe, they call it Redmonton for a reason. Not just the civil servants, the majority of population in the city and adjacent area is like that for the most part. Look at history and you will see that Edmonton has always consistently been more anti business and into the arts, protesting and other crap, than any other part of the province. Good example was years back when we'd be hiring yardapes and washmonkeys in Nisku, the ones from Edmonton were almost all losers, the good ones come from the surrounding area. Like father like son is what it comes down to.

Interesting read by Peter Zeihan basically amounting to Kenny wont have the power to reverse the forces aligned against AB which means only one thing left. Sell a quarter and get a home in Calgary.

https://zeihan.com/albertas-tryst-with-destiny/

The logic of Alberta leaving Canada is difficult to deny. If the rest of Canada remains hellbent on cramping the Albertans’ style, why not quit the Canada Show? Alberta isn’t dependent on the federal government’s financial handouts like other provinces. It has an energy sector, public infrastructure, educational system and workforce that has drawn plenty of international investment interest on its own. Negotiating export pipelines directly with the United States would be infinitely easier than with other Canadian governments, especially since the U.S. Gulf Coast is home to the only concentration of refineries in the world that can process Albertan heavy crudes. The money the Albertan government would save by not having to underwrite the rest of Canada would be gob-smacking

As for BC, yes we can cut off supply legally;

"If Alberta wants to squeeze BC it can shut down the pipe. But if it did the courts would deal with that in hours/days. But the truth of the matter is that Alberta is full of smart people and they know that the Trans Mountain can be gamed to reduce the amount of refined gasoline coming down the pipe. This will have price consequences."



Even the article says not legally. And it can't. Since the NDP have been hinting about "turning off the taps" even a reduction in throughput would be suspect. The bill was tabled for a reason, it can't legally happen - doesn't matter if you're in a blue or orange jersey.

The whole point of the article was to point out that the flow of gasoline can be reduced simply by switching to the maximum allowable of heavy crud thus reducing the pipelines total capacity which is perfectly legal.

Agreed. But legally you can't turn it off. That is what Kenny said he would do - or at least sold that way during the election.


Just now. https://bc.ctvnews.ca/kenney-to-enact-turn-off-the-taps-legislation-amid-pipeline-dispute-1.4384911

is saying they will pass the law but not use it knowing full well they can't anyway.

Nice to see the 70% voter turnout, highest in about 80 years I think I saw.
There are still 5 tossup ridings.
