US Military Guns Keep Vanishing, Some Used in Street Crimes

"Associated press investigation has discovered that amidst all the gun violence that we've been facing in this country. The military certainly isn't making matters any better. In fact military in the two thousand early two thousands had essentially lost literally thousands of weapons and oftentimes had no idea that they had lost many of them. So the army couldn't say how it's beretta m nine got to new york's capital and alberta until the june of two thousand eighteen police Until the june two thousand eighteen police foot chase. The army didn't even realize someone had stolen the gun. Inventory records checked by investigators. Said the m nine was six hundred miles away safe inside fort bragg north carolina. So what what's up. What does nine millimeter. Beretta m nine like what's what's up with this gun. Well it turns out. It was actually connected to four shootings in albany my bat in albany new york and so this is actually a widespread problem that has basically gone unnoticed. By the military weaponry being stolen In some cases it's an inside job or low ranking soldiers will know about some vulnerabilities and hey the military's got a lot of weapons. They're not going to notice why not steal them and sell them on the private market now. An associated press investigation has found that. At least one thousand nine hundred. Us military firearms were lost or stolen during the two the the two thousand ten's with some re surfacing in violent crimes because some armed services have suppressed the release of basic information. The associated press actually is under counting underestimating. Just how many of these weapons have gone missing or have been stolen now. While the ap's focus was on firearms and this should concern you. Military explosives also were lost or stolen including armor piercing grenades that ended up in atlanta backyard.

That Time I Realized My Boob Was Out

"That time i realized my boob was out. Let's just say it was awkward for everyone involved. There are specific moments in life. That will regrettably stay with a person forever. Whether or not you'd like to believe that these moments shape you somehow into the person you are meant to be is still up for debate. All i know is that one one finds their boob out in front of a total stranger. They must make the most of the situation. I was frantically cleaning my house back in a time when i still needed to clean my house because i was still allowed to have guests come over for visits. It was a smoldering hot summer day in central alberta which made my house temperature close to thirty above as i did not have an air conditioner at the time full disclosure. I blame this entire event on the fact that he didn't have a c. And now make sure. There is a unit in every home in which i live so as not to flash any more random people accidentally i put on my loose fitting green strapless dress as it was the coolest article of clothing. I had in my closet when i clean. I don't stop for anything. This is likely because. I hate cleaning and just want to get it over with. I removed the junk placed three loads of laundry on the line and started wiping down the windows and mir's with windex. Then the doorbell rang. I debated answering it but had the thought that it may be something important like that one time. I was writing in my home office. And unbeknownst to me my toddler son had called nine. One one and a cop showed up at my door.

Immune Boosting, Is It a Bust?

"Can you boost your immune system. Yeah what pitting facts against fighting off infections and this idea that we can pop a pill to boost our immune system. It started exploding during the early days of the pandemic. Tim caufield professor of public health at the university of alberta canada was watching as old took off. It was in the air. You know this idea of immune boosting it was just part of the gestalt own remain so and is the pandemic got worse and worse s s idea grew and grew and it felt like products to boost the immune system was suddenly everywhere. Especially as we've seen all over social media. And tim wanted to know what exactly was the stuff that was getting touted all over the internet so he did what any self respecting academic would do and he started scrolling instagram. And i really did i. I went through hundreds and hundreds of post day for work at the lab for you is getting a coffee and scrolling instagram. And you know. I wish i could say it was it was fancier but that's what i did team and he's tame systematically trolled instagram looking for the trending posts labeled with the hashtag immune booster and there was a lot of the stuff that you'd expect so called superfoods vitamins herbs. Were in the mix too i i saw supplements remain a vitamin d to Zinc and obviously vitamin c. Ginger elderberry echinacea saw a lot of smoothies a lot of smoothies out there and of course all they came with a healthy dose of that influence holier vibe. Tim talked about it without producer.

You know mixing metaphor making it worse pieces on the board to do some damage with if you are brian gene popping up for you know. Every six months to try to figure out what's up in the world of conservatism in alberta. This is the question. I think that will drive the answer to it will drive alberta politics over the next two years because of one of two things happening here right one. Is that brian gene and You know at all now the malays who have barnes and low and who who've been kicked out of caucus let's just assume they're on the same side even if they're not on the same team. Yeah yeah good point either they are trying to take over the use ep or they are not and i don't want to be too simple about it but if they are if they are trying to recreate a wild rose party if they're if they're happy to see these things burn then i think we're in one game right where all of a sudden there's another party on the right this big fight But you have to know that if you had two right parties you brought them together and they fell apart within just a couple of years the odds of them coming back together again get a little bit longer and that starts look like more of a permanent schism and that definitely does not like seemed like a way back to government if there is a sense that they are actually just fighting over the use. Ep the tactics will be markedly different. Barnes burns and low and won't like they'll sit as independent true conservatives there who want the use ep to be more united and better and they will continue to try to chisel people out of jason kenny's orbit but in the sense of like but we're all still members of the my sense is they're actually more like that right now and again. The very limited data we have available right now first of all who quits as caucus chair but not quits the caucus and i think that's a pretty strong signal as to where loans head as similarly barnes didn't go anywhere burns could have gone a lot of places for a long time here and he didn't he was much happier to be a gadfly within the party and carter..

"Last night. Criticizing the leader and yet his name was not included in the to kick you out list so there are two ways you can leave caucus one you can be kicked out and the second you leave lloyd. Snell grove leave. When i was working for alison redford he. He was less than thrilled that that she won the leadership and he just bailed leaving. The cock is is not off the table for these l. That are that the. I think the next big assumption is. This isn't over. We are simply in the middle. I think that this is where the speculation really starts to ramp up when you start looking at the the eight. What would what do we call them. The cove in eighteen the eighteen people that signed the letter. The eighteen people that oppose the lockdowns. The eighteen people who feel like their constituents are being served by government. That's barely taking care of it citizenry. Those people aren't going to be satisfied. I'm dying to know what's going on with angela. Pit and with you know a number of these others that sign these letters carter. Okay hold on. Let me go back to corey's framework of what we know with a high degree of speculative confidence right. Are you saying this is not over in defining this as others leaving the caucus or being told to get left from the caucus that this is just. I mean at the end of the day. Here's here's something that's speculative not speak you live at all m l. a.'s. And governments tend to act so they can get re elected in the next election core. You're gonna agree with me on that right. There is a strong motivation to act in a fashion. That will get you reelected and looking at the money. Looking at jason kenny's overall popularity looking corey's one has been pointing out to us that the polls have shown for what is it now. Seven straight months corey that the mvp are poised to form the next government seven straight months multiple polling firms multiple polling per methodologies. All of them tell us a singular story and that is the. Mvp is most likely to form the government. Having said that the emily's that signed this letter aren't the ones that are going to lose their seats right. These are the emily's that have a high degree of confidence can actually hold their seats. And that's why they speaking out against the premier right. They have confidence that if they were to leave this caucus they could form their own caucus instill and still hold. And that's what. I'm that's that's the unknown known that i'm the most interesting. Is that the right wing of alberta. Forget about the party affiliation still hold significant sway in rural alberta.

"Are apologizing for their ethics failings. They didn't they didn't fire bill more. No more no. They just wanted to move behind the curtain. They tried to get him a cushy job elsewhere in fact as was reported in blackhawks last month they spent nearly eleven thousand dollars during a pandemic on hospitality and printing in order to try to get this guy the oecd job. I it's it's madness to think that that somehow more no was being punished. This is just another example of how when the spotlight gets too hot. The liberals try to give their buddies jobs somewhere in the dark. And that's all you're seeing here and you should not give justin trudeau a pass for this. This is not ethical heroism. This is ethical failure at the highest stages. It wasn't bad enough that he had to be an ethical failure in canada. He tried to make bill more.

This was this was a party sanctioned version of true dom or the library or any of the other. You know very weak sauce Insults that are thrown around on social media that entirely through a specific type of person. Because let me count the ways. This was kind of bad on execution. Just the cheesiest bucket stock photo i've ever seen like. What are these people doing.

It and he's talking about people who are dying and what that could possibly mean and it's making light of this. It's like yeah. Look the americans get to party and that shouldn't be our biggest concern right now right. Yes that's part of it. Like the whole thing was just a total mess across the board and the funny thing i thought was. They took it down but i apologize in the past few hours. I've been busy watching alberta implode. But unless they've took the unless it happened in the last couple of hours they didn't apologize they just took it down almost pretended it never happened. Yeah just moved on.

It's keeps the people go either. Wanted to it keeps people until the forty three minute mark. When we start with al berta we lose eighty percent of the audience. No i think you should ask us. How the astrazeneca vaccine works in. How how how common how's it different. How's it different. I got it that makes it. You know like the.

How how does that make the look from from last week when we're discussing quickly when i i don't actually understand what the hell is going on. I am so confused with the communications and and the structures around astrazeneca. I don't understand what they're trying to communicate. Here's all. I know i'm in like i'm in this group that got this vaccination the got the vaccination. I need to get the the second one for this to be as effective as it should be. And i just hope that all of this to and froing doesn't put people like me off of getting our second. Vaccinations i don't understand why they're making such a big deal out of it. It does not feel like it is compared to the risk of the pandemic compared to the risk of other issues This just does not feel like. It's something i'm going to worry about in until it reaches the level of birth control risk It's just something. I'm not going to care about koi.

What is Happening with the Astrazeneca Vaccine?

"In canada but also particularly i guess in ontario in alberta. Okay so you know. I think that what we need to i remember and i think that i remember discussing this on a previous podcast session. But the issue is that policy always plays catch up with science typically scientists and move this fast but because we're are in a middle of a global pandemic sciences evolving so incredibly fast and policy is basically just trying to play catch up but i think it should give us reassurance that these changing guidelines mean that we are actually adopting policies to match what science is telling us. So i think that in just to start with. I think there should be reassuring even though it does come across as a lot of flip. Flopping it's not it's just trying to catch up with science and the fact that we are being nimble is incredible and the other thing that people have to understand is that we take these public health decisions. These have to be done transparently and we have to build trust with with the public and we do this by allowing canadians to be empowered to making informed decisions. And that's why a lot of this especially from nasi has been exceptionally transparent. But i will say that their communication has an hasn't been hasn't really been done properly and i think that has led to a lot of confusion but i do appreciate the are being transparent and trying to guide canadians with information.

Is In-Person Worship an Essential Service?

"One day when this is all over we'll look back at what covid nineteen revealed about our society. One of the things will notice is what people were not willing to sacrifice the parts of our lives that we consider essential in charge. Do not and will reflect on this when we remember y and where people were willing to break the rules to defy police and public health officials to essentially say this right here is more important to me than not just my own safety but more important to me than everybody's safety and for some families that meant contact with the grandparents or loved ones for some jerks that meant going to a barbecue restaurant or jim but i think it's fair to say that after a year of this if you went back and plotted where exactly the most public. Anti lockdown actions were found in north america. Churches would be at or near the top of the list. Just listen this alberto church that has openly defied public health orders for months has officially been. Shut down thinking chanting in honking. Those are some of the sights and sounds seen inside the fence off on sunday. And then the situation escalates. I don't believe there was attack. Defense people parked without permission on the neighbouring inauguration. Land a lot of racial slurs being thrown out of bounce that was from grace life church in alberta last weekend it was quite a scene. Protesters tore down. Fencing vandalized a car and acted not particularly christian. But it makes sense first of all in the big picture because the rise of the religious right especially in the united states but also here has become linked with defying the government and flaunting public health measures.

The Line 5 pipeline: A disaster waiting to happen, or necessary to avoid an energy crisis?

"First one that comes to mind. I'm gonna guess that you went with one of maybe three. The trans mountain pipeline which our federal government purchased a couple of years ago the keystone excel pipeline. Which is actually a pipeline. Because it didn't get built or maybe the end bridge line just because it's by far the largest of all the crude oil and natural gas pipelines. That run through this country. But i'm gonna guess that none of you zero named line five. I would be shocked. Many of you even knew that it existed. I sure didn't even though it has been running from alberta to sarnia ontario for more than sixty years line. Five is an offshoot of that main and bridge line and its distinguishing feature over. The decades is that it runs through a narrow strait between lake michigan and lake here. It's distinguishing feature right. Now is much the same only. It's the danger that it might pose to those two lakes and their shorelines and the legal fight over whether or not to shut it down as well as the massive economic cost. That would come with doing that. In short for more than half a century line five has moved more than half a million barrels of natural gas and crude every day and nothing bad has happened yet so the question is are we pushing our luck. What would happen if something bad did happen. How catastrophic could it be and is it as some governments would argue worth the risk to keep all that fuel flowing.

Casting the net wider: remaking the welfare state

"Good evening my fellow americans to light. I like to talk to you about where we are as we mark one year. She's everything stopped because of this pandemic last night. President joe biden spoke to america in primetime address from the white house for the first time since taking office he promised to direct states to make all adults eligible for covid vaccine by may and discussed the bill he had just signed into law. The american rescue plan one point nine trillion dollar stimulus program extends unemployment. Benefits it helps. Small businesses lowers healthcare premiums for many it provides. Food and nutrition keeps families in their homes. America's not the only country that's responded to the crisis with increasing generosity. I kind of went in. It was like a state of panic. That i honestly i can't tell you day-to-day thoughts were because they were just scrambled. Like what am i gonna do. What am i gonna do. How am i going to survive. How am i going to what. That's more good. Hope a fifty. Seven year old self employed chef based in canada when the pandemic swept away all of her work. She didn't expect much outside. Help after alberta's oil crash in two thousand fourteen. She received no government support and had to close her restaurant. But this time around with covid nineteen. The federal government included the self employed in. Its rescue package. I honestly i couldn't believe it. Until i saw myself until i filled out the application i pressed met and two days later. There was money in my bank account. And i was absolutely shocked across the world from america to canada to western europe. The pandemic prompted a shift in thinking about the role governments can and should play in crises. The greatest expansion of the wealth estate in living memory in this past yet social nada is our public policy editor. She's been tabulating that expansion which currently stands at nearly sixteen trillion dollars. That's more than four times. The support that countries provided during the financial crisis of two thousand and seventy thousand nine. And it's a shot departure from the pas not just in size but in shape too and because of that this could well mark the start of a new chapter for the welfare state. How do you mean how was this response. Different from what came before significantly. I think it mocked a risk shift from individuals to the state with governments essentially bailing out the people say things like schemes in britain and much of europe as well as cash gifts and in unemployment benefits in america what lawsuit of the state stepping up and taking a lot of risks that otherwise would have fallen onto households and individuals that is a sharp contrast from what we've seen over the past couple of decades when risks such as example being replaced by an algorithm or foreign worker had actually increasing been offloaded from governments and employees own individuals and you saw a lot of countries just for pragmatic reasons really move to universalism so with government prefers blanket benefits instead of fussing of eligibility. Or what's the basis of the way that it was before the pandemic the risen one model of course of welfare state but if we take as a starting point side of a social contract where there is a certain amount of poverty relief and social security that is supplied by the state to go back to suit of the early twentieth century. So the great depression in america really triggered the idea of we need some social security and in europe of course in the second world war was reading the moment when people started to realize that there were these collective big risks that they wanted to ensure against and then the big shift in both sides of the atlantic ready staw in about the seventy s and the welfare state becomes leaner and more focused on getting people into jobs and so benefit make order to get the incentives work or boosted welfare in many countries become stigmatized and at the same time. The labor market is made. More flexible has made easy to fire people. And you really see particularly from the early ninety s on more and more risk being shuffled back to individuals but even before covert hit there was talk about a need to change things right absolutely as with so many things covid nineteen has really shown quite a start light on the flaws in the traditional model and although the lessons are different for every country there are a few general ones. The welfare state on the hall was built around yesterday's worker middle skilled work who today is increasingly. Rare will become even rarer we've seen the labor market polarize over the last couple of decades in rich countries. The sheriff skilled in high-skilled workers growing whereas middle skilled and indeed middle income jobs have been falling and will continue to fall and the pandemic also related to that highlighted. How little job. And income security many of our essential workers indeed have because they fall into that low paid bracket low security bracket and then the other thing that covert has exposed is the vulnerability of work with kids of course when schools closed. There was suddenly this extra job that needed to be done. The situation has put childcare which we knew was an issue before the pandemic but it sort of forced onto the agenda and one of the encouraging things. I think that might be coming out of this. Is countries making better plans for things like child benefit. So part of the coronavirus relief plan. Joe biden will temporarily raise the child tax credit quite significantly and democrats already whispering the really like to make this change permanent. And do you think we'll see that pattern more. Broadly a will to make permanent to the kinds of changes. The governments were essentially shocked into by the pandemic. The will is that. I think it's too early to tell but the demand is clearly. Then that's an important start. Say lots of people. Such as mrs hope who we heard earlier have experienced vulnerability that can come with the show but also have seen how the state can help these moments of shock. And i think it would be very hard in a next crisis for states to roll out similar policy bazookas to help the people so i think on the demand side and again this is something we already sold before the pandemic domon strengthening for better more generous safety nets are that will only grow on the back of the pandemic experience whether the will is that is launching a political question and it's also a fiscal question but i am carefully hopeful because this past year has provided a live experiment of all sorts of policies that otherwise would have taken years to get the political backing for and so after all this experimentation. What are the lessons from the pandemic that you think should last. I think the most important goal here is just to ensure or cushion workers against certain shocks and just to make that a bit more practical and most of communists have argued that covered his shown the generosity of benefits should be pegged to the state of the economy so that when indeed were going through a mass period of shock and it's much harder to actually find a job benefits should be more generous. And when the economy's healthy again then you can make them a bit. Less generous against more flexibility in the welfare system to short revamped post covid social safety net would on the one hand provide enough flexibility to incentivize work but also have a state that wasn't afraid to step in when disaster hits and crucially estate that would also invest in human capital in childcare in health in educating the next generation as well as rescaling older workers today and that second element is important because just bringing out a huge umbrella on the stormiest days won't be

I mean there's probably a part in my life for any little mishap would crush me and i think it's sort of turned me into a bit of a neat freak because it meant that that was an area of my life i could kill some control over so there was a time. We're just kinda served me well to think okay. Well at least taken full these dish put them away so that when it opened the door. It's not total chaos. I can't do much else. So i think i've always been a tidy person. But i think it probably got heightened in the in the last years but yes. It's true it's true. I'm i think. I know where you may be got some secret intel. All i'm going to share is at the person who related this very critical intel to me said it also happened to be pretty life changing for them. So that's good to hear that a positive listed in the beginning right but but then ultimately life changing in every way match so you grew up. Sounds like into a certain extent. Kenneth splitting your time part With your mom and canada and then summers aish with your dad in montclair new jersey to set aside a new york for those who don't know where that is. Your dad Was cree and sounds like he was. A healer was a culture her first nations culture part of your life from the earliest days. I'm curious yeah. And in this way that i wouldn't have known was remarkable or even to name because it was just there and my dad did also live in northern alberta. There was yeah definitely split my time and a few few homes as per custody agreements and my parents both moving a lot and so where he lived in northern alberta was was on a a cre- reserve and and he was a healer. And so you know what. My dad's house. There was a sweat lodge in usually one or two ts in the yard and he ran various ceremonies and in the summer. We would go to another camp where he ran fast for people. And i would my sister and i would just be running around in the field and he would be doing that work. And so you know as a kid i didn't i. Of course. I took it for granted that the swizz present in my life and that i had access to ceremony which of course for a lot of indigenous people. There's been you know. A break for a lot of heartbreaking reasons and so i feel really grateful that it was just there i mean the soaraway. I feel about it now. Is that you know as a teenager. I was like okay. Whatever dad and then by the time in my twenties i was ready to come back and say okay wait. Can we now talk about this. Can you share these teachings with me. More you know explicit way was when he was was sick and when he died and so i wasn't able to kind of learn more from him in a more direct way but but of course it it shaped me and it was. It was there. My child had the. I mean even just to know that this is a part of you from the earliest days until learn through us moses through just being around it. I think that's so powerful. It's something that i've been come kind of fascinated with the concept of lineage and heritage over last couple of years. Maybe i'm at that point in my life where i'm getting curious about it. And if it like so often so many of us really know nothing about you. Know not just our parents as human beings but also the lineage that you know their parents and their parents and their parents and and what may have been lost along the way. Yeah and it's interesting. What gets shared. Because my dad was also french that my last name couture was my dad's last name but i know i know about french. Canadian like i would feel a bit shakey thing. I say a french canadian ancestry. I don't feel like. I'm part of that cultural group in the present whereas my from my mother's side she scandinavian and her parents lived in new norway. Alberta says it all right there and and so there was. There was some presence of that. You know adhere the stories and some of the words and the way. They talked about being norwegian and swedish. Was there but dia french. But i kinda i don't really talk about some like i wouldn't know what to say so it's interesting with the lineage. Because it's also like what was what happened to be present and so i can't the ways that i think of myself.

Is Biden Delivering on His Climate Promises?

"His twenty twenty campaign. President biden promised move fast on environmental protections. Now that he's been in office for a few months. How's he doing on that promise. I want to hear everything well. So far his administration is added eighteen new regulations and overturned twenty policies that environmental groups like the audubon society and the natural resources. Defense council opposed now toll. Cain they've stopped a coppermine from operating in arizona. After local native american tribes argued it could endanger sacred sites and sensitive habitats administration. Also pump the brakes on a decision to slash three million acres of northern spotted owl habitat. At least for now maybe the biggest decision. So far was ending the permit to finish the keystone excel pipeline. Which was supposed to carry crude oil from alberta canada all the way to the southern states in the gulf coast. Why is that a big deal. Well environmentalists were against the pipeline from the beginning over safety concerns and the increased greenhouse gases that the pipeline would release into the atmosphere. It also threatens the water supply and lands of the rosebud sioux tribe and other native peoples. Is there more work to do abso lutely. But everything's gotta start somewhere right

With no Keystone XL pipeline, whats Albertas Plan B?

"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Jason marcus off is the alberta correspondent for maclean's magazine. He joins us to try to explain what happens now. Hello jason wish me luck so in the couple of weeks now. Since joe biden has taken office and immediately cancelled the keystone excel permit. How his albert reacted. Not well as could be. Expected is opposed the way i'd put it. You know jason kenney got elected with a three word slogan not a phrase three word slogan jobs economy pipelines pipelines was the big punctuation point on that. And it's been a big issue for help out bird government and the economy for a long time that we don't have this big glut of oil sands and oil were producing and nowhere really to shit or no way to ship it out of there. That's been a big drag on alpern awale prices and benjamin prices for quite a while now keystone excel has been in the works for basically a decade now uh since they applied for this project as transcanada energies into long that they're no longer called transplanted called tc energy. Canada became less of an on vogue term to use in the names and this this has become the gun of the poster child. The original poster child for environmental activism and push back against oil industry pipelines The americans have been pushing back on this south from the left for quite a while. obama killed in two thousand fifteen. He decided to not allow permit. Donald trump brought it back in two thousand seventeen and it was no surprise. Almost anybody that Biden was going to kill it in in twenty twenty one Once he got nauseated and yet it was portrayed as a major disappointment and huge letdown for the government and to some extent for canada. Yeah i was gonna ask if obama killed this thing once already And it's really unpopular with the american left. Why didn't it seem like we were more prepared for this. You know i played a clip In the intro of kenny reacting on the day of biden's inauguration but surely as soon as it became clear he won. This was coming down the pipeline. There was an optimism and almost. I'd say an idealism about how a biden administration might act. People knew well the the history and the baggage that this project had that it was killed by obama when joe biden was the vice president of course and this had become this iconic push for the environmental movement did it it had that totemic status and yet there were people within the canadian government and especially the alberta government who thought they crashed an argument Through which this would work and that had several layers to it one Was the fact that there were many union. Jobs in america And in canada on the go for this there were was going to produce jobs at a time when jobs are scarce and these economies need these construction industrial and infrastructure jobs and they were hoping that would appeal to the lunch bucket. Union leanings of joe biden in his administration. There was also an argument that this was not the same project and the ever loyal sent throughout the same oil sands that they were in twenty fifteen when this project was rejected by obama or before twenty fifty back when there was much less of an issue of oil sands cleaning up their act like there is now out the oil sands have worked their best to lower the carbon intensity and the carbon footprint of their projects and they were going Tc energy the company that was going to build. This pipeline was talking about making their project. Carbon zero carbon neutral net zero through various means the actual pipeline construction itself. Not the oil flowing through it and there was also gonna talk Giving indigenous which oppose this quite often in the states Some equity stake in it so there were various ways. The canadians albertans thought they could thread the needle and make this an appeal peeling project. Make it some kind of package. Deal with other green initiatives that That canada and biden would go through jointly but the legacy of this project the baggage of this project mistakes the politics surrounding this whole saga from obama to trump to biden Made it an easy win for For biden to kill despite all the positives that this project could have given

You can find hunting warhead on. Cbc listen or wherever you get your podcasts. johnny. I want to pick up on something that you mentioned a little bit earlier. That you know when the alberta government for started these initiatives the inquiry and then the adjacent war room That the ultimate goal was to improve the public image of alberta's energy industry ultimately to help get more of algirdas oil and gas to market. And how much evidence is that. That is actually Working that the strategy has been working. I i don't think that there's any evidence.

"Can you compare him to other leaders around the country for me. Maybe i don't know. Doug ford in ontario. It's been really interesting watching. Doug ford and jason kenney in this because i think of all i mean there are quite a good number of provincial premiers who are conservative come from considered a parties but those two seem to be the most conservative logically. They've been quite different. We don't hear the same appeals to personal responsibility or the same disdain for lockdowns from doug ford in fact we've seen quite assertively eventually. Our modeling showed that if nothing was done we could face six thousand new daily cases in the coming weeks effective monday november twenty third. Twelve o one. Am toronto and peel will be moved into lockdown. People say it was too late enough but he has acted at much lower levels of spread then. Alberto alberta has a much higher rates. Now and jason kenny's reluctance has to act has been much greater than that of doug for not only that but also his tone is different and i think the tone matters so much in terms of public health messaging especially when we know that concerned politicians will reach a certain type of person that might not be listening to the daily briefings from the public officers of health. Right can you give me an example of that. So an example. Is you know a few times a week. We hear dr dna hinshaw the chief medical officer of health doing her news conference and her news update last monday. We announced eight hundred sixty new cases on sunday less than a week. Later we announced one thousand five hundred eighty four. She has a huge following of people who really hang on her every word. Listen to her on a regular basis. That's not everybody in this province and that's going to skew more urban jason kenny's political base skews more rural more conservative people who are less likely to want to do less in terms of economic activities social activities to keep themselves and other safe. There's a certain value when jason kenney gets up there and talks and he's done it a few times but not much much prefer to talk about the the economy job activities and defended the oil sector. These are things that play much more as wheelhouse then using the heavy hand of government to restrict people's liberties. It's a good thing that he wasn't using that kind of personal responsibility. Rhetoric and libertarian rhetoric during the started this pandemic otherwise we might have had a severe first-wave as quebec some of the us states or elsewhere. Why do you think he switched his tone moving into the second wave. And i used to have alluded to this earlier but i just be interested to hear your thoughts on why you think the switch happened. Pert of it is is the economic situation now. Berta i mean al. Burdens are still affluent. We still make a lot of money in oil there. The average wage is still higher than elsewhere but the decline has gone so fast. Now bernadette is really at a dire level that politicians do no matter of any stripe would need to respond in a much higher rate than they they might elsewhere and he's admitted that he has his own ideological perspective on this. You know he believes in personal freedom. He believes in liberties he's enjoyed saying. I'll open for businesses. The free aceh province. Would you describes a lockdown first of all constitutes a massive invasion of the exercise of people's fundamental rights and a massive impact on their not only their personal liberties but their ability to put food on the table. The other part is who's going to be in his ear. He's a conservative politician and his caucusing cabinet skew more rural than the rest the rest of the province and people. He's listening to Will skew more pro business. It was really instructive to hear him a few weeks ago. He was doing an online presentation or speech to the rural municipalities. Have overt group for counselors. And there he really had to stress. That look guys. Cova is serious. You might not see it in all your small communities. But it's a very serious risk. You need to make sure people are obeying public health. Risks you social distancing wearing masks when they're too close we have seen significant spread In various times over the over the past months in rural communities And we have. I think seen in some communities a skepticism in some rural communities skepticism about the The danger that covert poses so that signals to me that he's hearing from a lot of people that there is outright skepticism of even having rules or having gaza having life changed from covid. So he's he's hearing that much more than people will hearsay in calgary or tan and that seems to be coloring. His palsy response that is much slower than that of almost any leader other leader in the country. Well it's interesting to hear you say that certainly there have been these look like sizeable protests of people who are protesting for greater freedoms. Don't want lockdowns. But his his approval ratings are also in the toilet right like he is the worst rated leader in the country on his pandemic response from his own people by a pretty wide margin according to a recent leget poll. How do you explain that. Those are still pretty marginal groups. I walk around. Calgary go to stores. People are wearing masks. There are the occasional person squawking about you know not want wear masks and posting it on facebook and that get lot of attention just like these protests will but that's still a minority as it is in toronto when you see images of protests in terms of his popularity it speaks to that urban consensus that has been building right. Alberta needs to do more on kobe that this appeal to personal responsibility and appeal to prioritizing the economy over public health is is failing and that layers on top of other things. He's done to irritate the public. Some various budget cuts that. He's taken the huge war. He's had with public health workers during this pandemic over contracts with the doctors with the nurses with several of the unions. Alberta government plans to cut up to eleven thousand jobs in health services. At least eight hundred healthcare workers have walked off the job in alberta. There's a lot of frustration with how kenny is leading more. Not leading this province right.

I don't think kenny has any choice. Now to institute some sort of circuit breaker lockdown. Were you thinking as the province. Didn't hear from jason kenney over the last eleven days in cases kept rising and rising and rising to be quite honest all other premier who have been in isolation have continued to show up and make themselves available to press and media He did not the last time. Albertans saw him Was as you said on the twelfth of november And at that time he appeared in the elbert oppressor virtually via either resume caller however he did it so the opportunity was there for him to continue to do so Allegedly he has appeared in fundraisers this week virtually and yet he has made himself available to speak twelve burns.

And in this case I don't think premium kenny has demonstrated leadership and he definitely has not demonstrated strong communication and messaging.

"Hi jason is so great to have you back on. Thanks so much for coming harder so alberta is certainly not alone here in getting caught by the second wave but it's particularly bad there. Can you pay me a picture of how bad things are in the province right now. Alberta didn't have it as bad as ontario or quebec in the first wave but we had our difficulties We had the large break and canada. Some slaughter houses this video from inside the cargill meat processing plant in high river. Alberta we really half of them eight hundred thirty six have contracted the corona virus. One person has died. We did have a good amount of death more than in more than some of the other provinces out west but at the peak of things in the spring we had three thousand cova cases active. As of monday. We have thirteen thousand active cova cases. The province has basically admitted complete system failure on contact. Tracing the team has not been able to keep up with current demand. This means that there has been a slowly growing backlog of cases over the past several weeks so much so that dr hindi hinshaw chief medical officer of health announced today that they're so backlogged that they want people to know that if ten days of passed since their kobe positive test. They won't get a case investigation. Call so stop expecting one. That backed up instead. These individuals will receive a text message that will notify them to not expect a call and to provide them on guidance. on if win their 'isolation period has ended the have had to shorten the isolation period for health professionals who have tested positive they are having to implement surge protocols at hospitals cancel surgeries like they did in the spring to keep up with capacity especially in the city of amazon. Who's hospitals are full to bursting with icu. Cases and covid cases and the the toll of deaths is just been really extreme. Lately we now have four hundred seventy six dead last month this time. It was about three hundred and in the last week. Just necessarily hits hits home for those of us who realized that it's not just older people who are dying In last week there were three people younger than forty who passed away because of covid nineteen speaking of those deaths There is this photo. That's been circulating of this. Doctoring calgary on his knees in the hospital and he's calling a family to tell them that their loved one has died and he just looks devastated and he looks exhausted. He looked so tired. And it seems like dot picture has now become quite emblematic of the situation in the province right now. Hey absolutely that photo hit me like a ton of bricks. And i think it hit a lot of people that way. In alberta and elsewhere a fact actually made that photo even starker and sadder. And it's that that icu. Doctor in calgary when he was shown that photo couldn't remember in what case it was taken because he's had to make those terrible calls so often and he's so exhausted from having to do that. I think phone calls like this usually at then weekly right and the people that are in the ice you are the sickest people in the hospital although we don't want this to happen it's part of almost a routine and.

"alberta" Discussed on MEDIA INDIGENA : Indigenous current affairs

"Of indigenous studies at York University Brock. Brock era can Our topic takes us to the Alberta Legislature. Where just days ago? The United Conservative government began its spring sitting by introducing a single bill bill one that critical infrastructure defense act and according to a report from wind speaker under the proposed law. Those who shut down rail lines and roadways would each face minimum fines of ten thousand dollars for the first day of Action and then twenty five thousand for each subsequent day. They also face the possibility of six months jail time as well corporations that aid council or direct. The Commission of an offence are also open to fines of up to two hundred thousand dollars win speaker report. Also notes that. The bill's introduction came just five days after a group calling themselves cousins for it so again blockaded CNN tracks in West Edmonton okay. Can you live in that provincial? Capital the belly of the beast speak. So let's start with you and let's start with what reaction has been like and by that. I mean generally among Albertans but also in particular among indigenous people. What are you hearing or seeing The funny thing is about this bill is that it's it's kind of being is has been overshadowed by the new budget. It's almost like they buried this thing underneath like as really horrendous new budget that just passed but going back to bill one. There was actually an interesting split. I found on various social media sites. An I you know speaking of win speaker. I used to work there. So that's one thing I gotta make clear to everyone that I am a former employee and I'm still friends with the publisher of Prophet. So I actually sit on his site and watched a lot of the stuff that goes on there were a lot of. I can trust that. I'm looking at a large group of indigenous people who sort of cross-legged spectrum right. So it seems to be like mostly against the bill But there are some people who are strongly for it so I would if I was like I have no real metrics on this so a but just my initial feel for it now just to be. Honest is just just feel that I got from reading. The sites is that it's kind of like two thirds against the bill versus like I think a strong third of indigenous folk Su Do Support it. Sort a third of indigenous folk support. Yeah Yeah it's it's quite There is there is a body of people People in Alberta who really feel that the their strongly tied to a lesson development oil and gas development. The this put it this way. The blockade out here really wasn't strongly supported to say the one that happened in Saskatoon. Our anywhere else in this country it was up in. It was down fairly quickly. There wasn't a lot of broad support from other First nations people for it in the sense of the way. We've been seeing that kind of physical support that shows up right like the Saskatoon. One like had a lot of support from the local community local districts community who came out. And you know meet. Your everyone was warm. Made sure they had enough food. Made sure the the you know. They're being protected. So none of that existed as strongly out here in. I'm not trying to. It's not a sense of me. Criticizing the blockade. But since I did not see the equivalent amount support I've seen elsewhere now Dot put you on the spot. But I'm going to anyway If we had ven diagram of those indigenous people who were? Let's say supportive bill one and those who work or in some way earned their living through the throwing gas industry. Would we see One circle or significant overlap. Yeah you definitely see largely one circle that would that would be the case This is the industry that drives Alberta and of course first nations people here derive benefit from it when they get employed in it and Up until I believe the eighties nineties. Several bands around Emerton that generated massive amount of revenue from the oil and gas leases. They had on reserve. So it's really quite The this is a very strong Strong very strong pro. Oil and gas feeling amongst the indigenous communities. Here not saying as universal. Yeah Yeah but those who a benefit from it from it how are for it and also here in the city of Edmonton the south side of. Emerton sits on an illegally surrendered. Cree reserved Chase and they've been people who've been trying to get the land claim Set up get their membership back and their chief Carl. Bruno has been very vocal. About being pro pro pipeline. Right you know. He's all about prosperity for his people and he sees it in oil and gas. And you know the Manitoba Matey Federation as come out. Supportive of oil and gas development generally Brock you live about. What is it three or four hours drive north of time to Negga territory? So I don't know the extent to which Maybe your life has been impacted by by the blockade there by by Mohawks in any case the premier L. Berta. Let's get you back. To Berta the premier there is selling this legislation as a necessary response to what he calls. Virtual Anarchy and lawless mockery of our democratic principles. An attack on her nations and our provinces prosperity meanwhile Alberta Justice Minister and Solicitor General Doug Schweitzer Francis as decisive action to end the lawlessness blockades in our province which jeopardize public safety. So there's a lot of elements to to this particular frame. What do you make of it? What what stands out there for you. One thing that stood out right away was that it doesn't seem that this bill is being brought forward with a Mike Universal support even Alberta others the statement from AFN regional chief Marlene Poitras and she ended up pointing out the Essentially that it was unnecessary in she was urging the provincial government. Alberta to withdraw the bill and Y- we also saw af en national chief Perry Bell Guard. Also come out and and Kinda chastise the the premium for for bringing this in and even the the leader of the opposition in Alberta Rachel Notley former premier herself as she came out and said that this was unnecessary that with the existing legislation police already have jurisdiction to enforce an injunction and so essentially the seems like. It's more maybe kind of as Ken mentioned in some ways almost cover a really bad budget a government. That's just desperately trying to look like it still can defend oil and gas and restore the Alberta Economy at a time that Albert Alberta Families. I think in our are struggling financially with relatively high levels of unemployment and then the cancellation of the Frontier Mind Yup. Yup so I in some ways. I think this is You even mentioned the Justice Minister Rick. He had a a kind of a ridiculous response when it was pointed out to him. That wouldn't this. Proposed legislation also have an effect on the so-called yellow vest protest movement that that's very much pro oil and gas. In that case he emphasized that police would have discretion as to whether to apply is where imprisonment. So it seemed pretty clear like this is really just You know waving the flag for oil and gas extraction and Alberto and Yeah and it would be a deterrent for for anybody who opposed oil and gas to try to protest other than in the very restricted way. At the justice. Manage Service was permitting. So he mentioned. Oh you can stand beside the road you can show up the legislature. But just don't get in anyone's way or cause any significant inconvenience. Yeah I have to say I felt that reaction to it Didn't really get at the NUB of it in terms of you know. What is the problem. This new bill purports to solve. What is supposedly missing from current laws on the books as you just so you know well laid out Brockman it. It's it's not clear what it adds except Let me quote more from that. Win Speaker Article Premier. Kenny stress. That blockades were already illegal activities and Coordin- junctions to stop them weren't necessary but clearly the existing penalties and court actions were not having the desired if impact quote we're using the powers that we do have to create summary offenses of this nature with penalties with administrative fines with potential jail time and so he says on the one hand this gives police and prosecutors additional tools to crack down on illegal blockages of critical infrastructure. And we're adding to the disincentive of that kind of lawlessness. With the power that we have under Alberto legislation said Kenny so This is really interesting to me. Because this theory of disincentives usually comes up in discussions and debates around getting tough on crime quote unquote. You know things like murder theft assault and and to me to kind of lump or associate blockades with with those kinds of offenses. I mean I'll stick with brock. I mean there are those who would say this risks. Criminalizing dissent What do you think of that? Yeah I completely agree. And I think it's telling in terms of how can you presented it. But there was a great phrase used that got caught in some headlines or sub headlines about urban green laughed zealots target that quote unquote that. Jason. Kenney blamed for the supposed anarchy. But the amazing thing is. I looked at the the whole quote in. I'm paraphrasing part of it. But what he's actually referring to there is again quote urban green last zealots who appropriate or have been trying to appropriate the cause of first nations but are actually slamming the door shut on their prosperity and so he goes on to say that his vision of this is quote reconciliation through prosperity So he's the way he's messaging is that he's actually trying to heat like he's the friend of first nations. Alberta and presumably elsewhere in the country. That's on side with the extraction industry. I mean that's where it seems like this is a very in some ways. Although it does seem hasty as you pointed out it was only five days after the cousins for wet solids in action. It seems like they're really trying to again. Show show some action. I would probably is it. Pretty frustrating situations seeing the tech bind. Go down and again. There's been the long-standing dispute between BC in Alberta over the construction of a pipeline to tidewater. So he he's promised so much is a relatively recently elected premier. And my mind. This is just kind of More proof of just how helpless he is. There's there's much greater market forces at play and I think what global concern over climate crisis that the his recent budget did nothing to address and he still seems to be a trying to avoid taking meaningful action that would allow albertans to transition to a new economy. Not One based on fossil fuels as I would say. There's another motivation to this law. You know it's not above. His personal ambitions are to be the prime minister and I think he sort of I think he knows this is not really that effective of a love because he can only apply in all BERTA and again. There isn't the kind of broad support here on the ground for any kind of like action yet. You're not seeing it Mellberg the way we're seeing it anywhere else. I kind of see him going. If I was prime minister. This is a kind of law I would pass Canadians. Take note you know that I would do something about this sooner than later. I am struck by what Brock said that. This is actually a sign of weakness. This is a desperate act as opposed to a sign of strength and machismo. Oh Yeah Yeah I agree I did. I don't disagree with that. I think it makes but I'm also saying there's another motivation to that. He probably knows it's not not an effective law and not when he's really gonNA have to us anyway it's just I think he's firing a broadside at at Trudeau Trying to show off what kind of leader he would be if he was the prime minister. Now the focus of the legislation can is on pipelines oil and gas production refinery sites highways railways dams bridges electric gas water facilities and telecommunications lines. That's quite a big quite a big list. It's in keeping with Type of Scope that is laid out by the federal government through the Public Safety Canada. And if you go to its website and look at what it considers to be critical infrastructure. It includes health food. Finance Water Information and Communication Technology Safety Energy and utilities manufacturing government transportation. Starting to think of might have been easier to list. What isn't considered critically district man now and and.

"Hi Sharon Hi Jamie. First of all I I know this project is a big one but how big put this into perspective for me. Yeah you're right. This is a big project it didn't it has a long lifespan. So this is a project just to give you some context. It'll be northern Alberta. I'm just outside of Wood Buffalo National Park and it's a proposed major the investment in Alberta oil sands and do before we talked about the mine itself. I think it's important to talk about the oil sands and what a substantial part of Canada's oil production they represent Um so the oil sands accounted for over sixty percent of Canada's oil production in two thousand eighteen That's a lot. That's according to actual resources Canada so in the oil sands ends. There are already seven open. Pit Mining Projects Albert them. Those would be the more famous names. You may have heard of the secret and SUNCORP YUP FRONTIERS TECH project. Wants to be the next. And it'll be as you said one of the largest if not the largest oil sands open pit mines ever proposed in Alberta Right. And how long is it. Projected to operate for the. The proposal says that they'll have their first oil producing twenty twenty six. It will operate for forty years and it will take about another twenty years for them to clean it up so we're looking got cover most of the century long term and we save. His mind is big so you know. I think it's supposed to be like double the size of Vancouver. Is that fair yes. That's about twenty nine thousand hectares. That'll be that'll be footprint. And that is about double the size of the city of ink. Hoover would produce about two hundred and sixty thousand barrels of bitchy everyday everyday at its peak. Okay so the future of this project is as as I mentioned at the top of the show in the hands of the federal government as we speak and it got there with the recommendation. Tation of a joint panel of federal provincial regulators. WHO found this project was in the public interest though they conceded that there would be significant adverse effects? And I want to get to the adverse affects with you in a moment but first why did they find this project in the public endorse. What's what's the benefit here? I mean put it simply the benefit is money yeah The panel took techs projections of how much money this project will bring in in the long term so over around seventy billion and economic mkx benefits In terms of royalties and taxes to the various levels of government. They also are talking a lot about job creation so the mine would according to the company Penny create seven thousand jobs during construction require another twenty five hundred acres during operation and they have more estimates that You know lots of billions of dollars in figures are they say that this will contribute two point one billion to Alberta's annual GDP it'll increase household income by another two billion. It's it's just expected to have a a lot of huge economic impacts. Okay I was ahead. I know this is something Alberto premiered. Jason Kenney has been touting. He's a big supporter of this project last month when Alberta's premier sat down with the prime minister. Turn off the proposed tech tear oil sands megaproject was among the first topics discussed. That would create ten thousand jobs. Seventy billion dollars in revenue for for governments to pay for healthcare and education. Okay so let's go back then to those significant adverse effects The regulatory panel mentioned. What are the sort of immediate effects? The building of his mind would have on the environment in this part of Alberta. So as I mentioned it's about twenty nine thousand Hector's that would be its footprint as you can imagine that is currently mostly forested area. That would all need to be removed for it to be an open pit mine. So the the panel found that close to three thousand hectares of old growth forests would be removed for the mind to be built They also said that wetlands cover about forty five percent of the area. They looked at that would be drained and removed and then importantly they also looked at peatland which is seen as an important carbon sink and found three thousand in Hector's of peatland would be destroyed by the minds construction and the panel found that would be an irreversible loss. So that's not something you can put back after you're done producing and mine define nine carbon sink for me right. So peatland is just an important place where carbon stored so when you remove peatland you release a lot of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Okay and you know you mentioned that this would be a forested area with wildlife as well. I would imagine that would for sure. Yeah there are a couple of Free roaming disease-free herds of wood bison in the area and that's why would buffalo national park has its name Athabasca Chippewa. First nation is concerned served about the Ronald Lake. Bison herd the herd is listed as threatened. Dishes hasn't been touched it. You mean to tell me dot dot dot greedy Goddamn power of money to goon damage dry d environment. They're also Caribou which are in the news a lot lately for being at risk And then a number of other species migratory birds bats Links all sorts of species that would be affected according to the panel the fourteen creed Denny and Matey groups have signed participation agreements with tech resources joining us is Ron Quintal. President of the Fort MCI maintain the fact that environmental aspect of things is is the number thirty I think ultimately slingshot of the foreword wouldn't by way of the community at least one cheap admit signing the deal wasn't easy all the first nations are signing on with tech words. This is leave us out of love to fight but to has to be a time when you have to draw the line.

"Sometimes the things you think you know about a place when you're outside her. Turn out to be completely false. This is not one of those times the angry and ignored the feeling among the two thousand protesters here frustrated by the enormous discount alberta crude what is being sold for him to the reason for that crisis and this protest an inability to get canadian oil to market due to a lack of pipeline capacity and rightly or wrongly wrongly in this crowd much of the blame for that lies with justin trudeau. If you wanna know how alberta is going to vote in october you ask yourself how the oil and gas industry. We'll be doing by that. Ask yourself if the long-awaited trans mountain pipeline will be under construction by them and ask yourself. How does berta typically feel about leaders named trudell this week. Our lay of the land project dives into canada's conservative stronghold where a good eighty five percent of the writings can be called like right now but that doesn't mean there's nothing we can learn by examining just how trudeau and the liberals else came to be so hated in this province or by looking at what has voters in the few swing ridings that exist still making up their minds or by wondering what if with anything could dent andrew shares chances and this province because as he might be learning from ontario polls right now electing an overwhelmingly conservative the provincial government doesn't necessarily guarantee the federal vote will go that way too. Hello i'm jordan heath rawlings and this is the big story. Jason marcus off is the albert correspondent for maclean's. Hey jason audi as out here how democracy going out now berta. Oh it's always churning in war rooming and going forth we are now at least a couple all of months. You would know better than me removed from jason kenny's big win. How's that going. It's been what since april so that's maybe seventeen months. I think jason kenney any <hes> you know acting a lot of promises. He had a pretty big detailed agenda. It helps knowing well in advance that you almost definitely going to win. So you can basically cle- just put out the manifesto for all the things you are promising you do to do and then you do a bunch of those things set a bunch of them in motion so they've scrapped the carbon tax you know the federal backstop will come in soon lick. It has another provinces but he's scrap. Carbon-tax launched a or announce. He's is gonna launch yet. Another <hes> court challenge against it. He's cut corporate tax. He's done a lot of consultation. I mean the you know as one. Does you put out a bunch of consultations. Do things a bit later whether it be because you just wanna make sure you get all your ducks in a row once you actually have the the books when you're in government ferment or in a lot of what jason kenny's doing he's actually postponing some major decisions including the budget until after the federal election jason kenney being very sensitive to not wanting to upset the apple cart for andrew scheer. He's actually delayed the false sitting of the legislature until october twenty second. That's happening out here on -tario as well. I think <hes> i mean there are two reasons for that. I would i would gather one. One is to make sure that your political staff and m l. a.'s can take some leave and do some campaign work and help the federal cause but also not not paint it yourself as a target jason kenney liked doug ford and ontario has promised to take aggressive action on the deficit and that means a lot of public service cuts and we've seen what's the furor through various service cuts and reforms in ontario. Jason kenney is really trying to keep those out of the headlines headlines until after the election by actually keeping them out period of the public eye. Nothing is decided nothing is happening technically until sometime in late october once we figure wrote who the prime minister for the next four years give or take are going to be well. It's interesting because on -tario i think <hes> in a province that's kind of a swing province. A people are linking king andrew shears candidacy to what they've seen from doug ford's government or at least that's what <hes> that's what the polls are showing but in a province that's pretty much just faithfully conservative police police slingy of us all yes yeah do voters link sheer and kenny that closely like we'll kenny's policies reflect on potential share prime ministership and n._l. Berta maybe i mean it'll keep in mind what's in play in alberta so we have thirty four seats twenty nine of them are conservative for urwin liberal last year which was a high water mark for quite a while and one of them went in dp and those are all urban seats <hes> three in into in calgary and those are really the only seats that are in play in the rest of the province is reliably conservative. Nobody is really going take those two seriously as ones that could flip and because of that what kenny does won't really have any impact on sheer because the loyalties unflappable the support is not going to shift you know unless there's something really astonishing if andrew scheer suddenly behind closed doors making fun of burton's and and now she my skin is gonna rip up all pipeline plans then maybe people would lose faith in him in alberta but i don't really see that happening so much well in the places that are up for grabs them what issues are albertans voting on what could swing those writings one of the big things with two thousand fifteen is a watershed for intruder the liberals they hadn't won anything in this province in the harbor years. They hadn't won anything in calgary. Read the liberals since nineteen sixty eight wow then they picked up two seats a former minister khair downtown and a seat in the northeast in a in a in a writing with a lot of new canadians and they want to an eminent sort of in the same configuration downtown and a separate with a lot of new canadians in those areas the issues will be the same as in the other in the rest of the province pipelines and the economy the alberta alberta economy took a deep dive around twenty fifteen around the time of the last election and never really recovered and a lot of people people blame the whole pipeline carbon tax issue for that <hes> some of which is justified some of which is certainly played up by conservative politicians. Jason detractors just those policy. He's bought the pipeline <hes>. He bought the trans mountain pipeline but you know. I don't think he's gotten any much credit for that. People saying thanks justin trudeau. We're going to give you more years because you're saving our pipeline. That doesn't really count to play people in this province have decisively turned against justin trudeau and only in the most liberal areas where there are concerns about andrew scheer and support new canadian communities for the liberals over the conservatives. Do they have a hope. It's going to be a scrape for these seats for the liberals very much. My next question was going to be about the pipeline because again as a a casual observer from outside of the province. It doesn't seem like there's been a lot of movement since the liberals purchased it and presumably the point of purchasing it was to get moving and bring jobs to albert and and and keep albertans or at least a small pocket of albertson's <hes> approving of the liberals so what has happened well shortly after they purchased it in the spring of two thousand an eighteen they had the hard hat photo ops and people digging shovels and they were starting to do work on it then came the federal court of appeal ruling in favor of a number number of first nations communities n._b._c. saying that they didn't consult properly the same wrap that the conservatives had for northern gateway that wind up scuppering that pipeline plan so they've had to go back. Do more consultations get a new approval that happened in the spring just last week on on wednesday. The federal pipeline company announced that they're going to be moving forward on starting construction in september which means that there will likely maybe some photo ops a new hard hat for the liberal government more hard hats more shovels more smiles and in the last case eight invited the the provincial government then under rachel notley to don those hardhats with them. They were very eager to thinking that this was they were driving confidence. They were saying that look our compromises work with the liberals working <hes> they're on our side. They're moving forward and we're getting results. Jason kenney is not playing that game with things nor as much of the oil sector in part because they've been burned in the past. They know that if you don that headline that hard hat you can look pretty funny if in a few months later there's another court ruling right saying you didn't consult enough still go back to the drawing board or if there's a lot of people are expecting a lot of civil disobedience and activism to visit among indigenous activists and environmentalists trying to physically block some of the construction zones in british columbia and and the other factor of course is that jason kenney does not want to give a lot of credit any credit really to justin trudeau for things so what they're saying is. We're going to hold our celebration until the pipelines ashi completing oil flows nats <hes> twenty twenty two. What are the chances that shovels actually end up in the ground for real before the election and i don't mean i don't mean for a photo op. I mean work really starts and if so does that change anything <hes> about albertson's opinions minions of the liberals this announcement was that they're going to start hiring people and and they will be in a position to start work at various points in the pipeline route through d._c. And starting in alberta as of september so there will be actual won't be ground move but they'll be putting things in place they'll be getting doing some land clearing and whatnot they'll be photo ops for things that are not just announced but things that are actually going to be happening but that doesn't instill much confidence now because that puts the pipeline in the same place that it was in the middle of last year and then people saw what happened. There's a lot of skepticism skepticism concern <hes> any confidence is very reserved and you also still have jason kenny and a lot of people in the oil patch gotcha who are the advocacy ed keeping on kudo much more criticism not for what he did with trans mountain for what he's done with everything other everything else in terms of pipelines lines so people are in alberta and what the conservatives have tried to engineer in large part are much more likely to blame him for the things he's done that would limit future pipelines than what he's done on positively on the current pipeline. Is there any point and maybe this is a dumb question but is there any point or anything anything that the liberals could even try to do to reach out and court. Some of those voters or is the split deep enough that it's probably a a waste of campaign resources. They're going to devote some tauruses to albert and part of that is because you don't want to be seen as abandoning alberta right. There's already that myth out there and has been very aware of that ever since he started his leadership campaign back in. I think it was only thirteen for. I got elected. He was coming to calgary in alberta on a regular basis having covered harper all this time. We've never in recent years prime minister. Come this often too alberto. They've made a lot of investment safe right to say. We're not giving up upon you. We have your back. They're trying. Are they going to vote a ton of resources. Are they going to do anything serious to expand their footprint. No they'll try to keep the three empty seats. They half half if things look really bleak if they seem like they're really really hard up. They may shift resources out but liberal crowd a lot thinner than they were four years ago <unk> at upper events. Do we know how the general populace of alberta feels about climate change because this is one of the issues. That's come up repeatedly as we've. We've asked people in other provinces and asked pollsters about you know the top voting issues. Alberta is the province that believes at least in the immediacy of the climate change crisis in the country in terms of lack of faith in climate change science.
