When a politician rejects the people whose votes he campaigned for, it is always his fault and never theirs.
The UCP was created to unite a wide variety of Albertans. They were attracted to the thought of Alberta being governed by a common-sense party that listened to them, that answered their questions and that was straight with them.
Premier, if many Albertans have stopped doing what you want, that is on you.
You have failed to answer their questions. You have failed to give them the data and information they were looking for. You have failed to keep them persuaded.
Leaders bring people together. Leaders listen and explain and convince. Leaders answer questions and provide the information that people need to understand things. A leader is sometimes in the hot seat – take it. It is your job.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about how AHS is hiding critical health data from Albertans – you have done nothing about that.
I wrote about how the CMOH wasn’t being asked the right questions and how to fix that. You ignored that too.
I made suggestions on how you could reach across the political aisle and unify Albertans. Your response was to arrogantly reject even those Albertans who voted for you.
Premier, Albertans have lost confidence in you. Those who didn’t vote for you have concluded that you are even worse than they feared. Those who did vote for you, know that you are not governing as they would have hoped.
You might want a “new base.” Albertans want better leadership.

Study warns Alberta has failed to consider damage to foothills from coal mining

Published on

A lengthy new report commissioned by landowners near proposed Alberta coal mines concludes mines would create environmental liabilities that exceed their economic benefits.

Written by respected Alberta environmental consultants, the report says mines would pose a serious threat to both the quality and quantity of downstream water.

It says current methods to remove toxins such as selenium are unproven over long times and large areas.

The report suggests new mines would increase stress on water supplies, especially as southern Alberta grows and climate change alters rain and snow patterns. 

It estimates new mines will only be one-quarter reclaimed within 50 years — and those sites aren’t likely to return to what they once were.

The report concludes the government has failed to consider the cascade of environmental effects that coal mining would create, especially in combination with forestry and energy development. 

The report, requested by the Livingstone Landowners Group, has been filed with the government’s coal consultation committee.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published June 15, 2021.
