In the history of Alberta, has there been a more hypocritical and demoralizing group of MLAs than today? The leader of these “do as I say, not as I do” Christmas thieving politicians – Jason Kenney – has the gall to tell Albertans it is safe for our MLAs to fly out of the country, but not safe for us to have our own grandchildren and family over for a traditional gathering. It’s unreal.
Is Minister Tracy Allard, his vice chair of the COVID-19 Emergency Cabinet Committee the only one in the province with a “family tradition” at Christmas time? She – as well as other decision makers – obviously have more information than we, the general public, and have decided it was safe for them to travel, fly and gather together, but told the rest of Albertans that we are selfish and have no respect for society or others if we do so ourselves.
Premier Kenney and his Emergency Cabinet Committee members are just as disconnected from the people and the reality of life as in any tinpot dictatorship in the world today. This is the epitome of arrogance and ignorance combined. If they had an ounce of integrity left, they would all resign.
At the very least they should agree to give the power back to the people to decide if they should be allowed to stay in office or be fired through recall. They do not need their promised recall legislation to be passed to be accountable to the people – they need integrity. They could and should – at a minimum – announce today that if 50 per cent plus one of the total number of people who voted in the last election in their constituencies sign an online verifiable petition to fire them, they will do the honourable thing and resign.
This government has demoralized too many Albertans by taking away their ability to provide for themselves and their family by making them dependent on government handouts. These elitists have done this to tens of thousands of Albertans not just once, but now twice in the last 10 months.
If Albertans don’t rise up and get loud enough, Kenney and Trudeau will continue to do this until we are forced to be part of Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum’s “Great Reset”. He has communicated this in the past, and he is envious of governments like China and Cuba where the ruling Party can impose its leader’s self-declared ‘superior’ ideology on the people at any time.
Today is the day for our Premier to end the lockdown insanity. Give Albertans back their freedom, dignity and self-worth. Share with them the latest information on the successes of treating COVID being used around the world, and make these repurposed drugs available to Albertans through their doctors.
Let each and every Albertan determine their individual risk tolerance. Allow them to assess how they will conduct themselves and run their businesses.
