    Kenny has made a name for himself. After Quebec’s Legault, Kenney is the second most outspoken and popular

  2. Governments are too big and still growing. When we cant borrow and pay the bills then what, we sell the country?

    Federal politics is disingenuous and posturing. Provincially is where things get done.

  4. We are not being heard in Ottawa………that’s because our PM has the depth of a finger bowl and has never had to work for a living……..the most middle-class jobs lost in Alberta ( well over 100,000) and moving in the wrong direction. This is why Harper said he was not ready……..too stupid to ever be ready!!!

    • Self created problems by Alberta, and the Kenney government is doubling down on them.

      Hyperpandas oh and just so you know, with Trudeau’s throne speech! I’ll give up my assault rifles when you eastern pinko commies pry them from my cold dead fingers!!

      Hyperpandas and now you won’t answer because you’re too scared!!

    Kenny should not deal with devil JT! He should not cave to him. Do WEXIT!!!! It’s the only hope for Alberta. Wht should it be an olive branch. It should be a natural given to help out one of the provinces! Alberta or any province should NOT HAVE GROVEL TO THAT STUPID, LYING, CHEATING, EVIL JT AND HIS RIDICULOUS SO CALLED GOVERNMENT!

  6. Kenny’s cuts should jeopardize management positions NOT frontline positions. Small bandages as we hemorrhage. Alberta separation looks better and better as the true answer.

    Well, Kenney does have his eye on the PM’s chair … so he is going to be soft peddling with Trudeau and never going to actually use any Provincial leverage to solve the big problems such as Bill C-69 which means no more pipelines for Canada

  8. 6k job cuts is Union talk. Cut middle management pay, problem fixed.

  9. Wow… thanks for the help, This panel just doesn’t get it……Albertan’s don’t want hand outs and free free free money that we in essence have had paid for regardless… we want to be able to make a living and get our product to market so that we can get a fair price for it. A rising tide floats “ALL” boats.

    • Martin, they’re in Toronto. EASTERN CANADA. Of course they don’t get it. They don’t WANT to get it. This panel actually highlights why we have such a divide in Canada. It highlights precisely why there’s a growing, potent threat to “confederation “. Look, there’s going to HAVE to be a serious attitude change in Canada, possibly first grasped by the MSM, or , sit back in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa ( the core elements of the Laurention elites), and watch this country fragmented. And that folks is bye, bye Canada. This is a terrible situation!

    • Kenney is in Ottawa to explicitly ask for handouts, actually.

    • @Hyperpandas no. He’s in Ottawa to demand what is rightfully ours. You seem to have a problem with this. Why?

    • @Jimmy Reid He’s asking for a retroactive change to rules that were in place when he was in the federal Cabinet with Harper. In what sense is that not a handout, and in what stretch of the imagination is it “rightfully” Alberta’s?

  10. There have been no cuts to the funding of education or health care.Your guests seem to be quite ignorant of the facts in Alberta. It is not just that the Liberal government
    is ignoring the west they are actually fighting against Alberta and Sask with Bill 69 and Bill 48.

    • Go to talk to any school in Alberta and let them disabuse of that. Then look to the government’s own recent statements about layoffs in health services to take care of your other claim.

    Together Kenney, Moe, and Pallister are a force for Conservatism: Building up the West benefits the Canadosphere, which is wonderful news for all forward looking Canadians, including Andrew Scheer.
    The Asia Pacific Region is the Crown Jewel of the Canadocentric Polity, and demise of the Quebecocracy.

  12. Ken Shackleton | December 9, 2019 at 7:28 PM | Reply

    Alberta doesn’t want a handout…we just want Canada to get the hell out of our way.

  13. I don’t agree with this analysis. While I am not a fan of Scheer, I don’t think this hurts him, at least here. The west is not going to vote Trudeau. It’s that simple.

  14. The NDP guy is the reason Albertans won’t elect an NDP government again.

    Money spending debt growing tax increasing. Move to Quebec if you want that.

    Excuse me!!! It is just fear mongering throwing out all these threats about job cuts!!!!! There may be a few cuts if Exects and Middle management in Education and Health do not find efficiencies and cut out waste. If there are cuts it should be at the middle and executive levels , not the front lines. And we do not need to throw more money at it!!!!!!!!!

  16. Wow ,talk about inverted leftist logic…

  17. Oh ff sakes take OUR money and shove it where the sun dont shine! PANDERING ONLY WORKS IN THE EAST, and probably with kenny…IT BETTER NOT!

  18. Is scheer just in the title for click bait

  19. Mongo Like Candy | December 9, 2019 at 9:40 PM | Reply

    Kenney is a strong leader! Scheer isn’t! Although I don’t believe Alberta’s fortunes will ever change for the better in this confederation, we need a strong federal conservative leader!

    Just another Québec politician out to screw over the province who pays Quebec’s bills.
    He’s doing the same here in Ontario after Wynne (liberal) lost the election to Ford(Conservative). Trudeau spoke plenty against him.
    Goes directly to Toronto to give money and bypasses the provincial government.
