"It's unfortunate, because if there's any politician who should understand the dangers of corporate welfare, and how it Burns towns pairs, it should be now Jason Kenny because the young Jason Kenney back in the nineties when he was head of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, he was the one who is pushing or leading the charge against corporate welfare. If you remember Corey. He actually proposed legislation to to L. Law Corporate Welfare Note Berta. He was the one who who pushed that the Canadian taxpayers. Federation when Prettier Candy was the head, they we. We released a report. That looked at corporate welfare. Would they call it? The time business boondoggles costing taxpayers more than two billion dollars in the eighties and early nineties Let me just pull a quote. From for Premier Kenny back in the early nineties. This is what did you see? This is what a younger Jason Kenney said and I quote for too long. Politicians have pretended. They were businessmen investing with other people's money, and they made a now salute failure of it so clearly, Kenny knows the dangers of corporate welfare, and now that he's was elected to be the route girded. He's also said that his government. Doesn't think picking winners and losers is the right way to grow the economy, but it's almost like he's speaking of both sides of his mouth year, because on the one hand he's talking about how well we need a a low in competitive taxes dumb and we shouldn't be picking winners and losers, but then on the other hand were hearing new announcements that are coming out. That is plain and simple. Simple corporate welfare. So why is it out as well Katie knows exactly why for welfare is is a bad policy is one of the few varies actually I, think we're the left and right quite often agree we get. It's galling is a capitalistic crony capitalism, and it's not giving people who've earned their their business rights within a or estate is somebody just has connections, and of course the left. Up Ten, proposed business altogether, but then why is it always so tempting for a government to dive into the corporate welfare over and over and over again like that? Well, you know I don't know exactly what the conversations are in the back rooms, but I think there is the political incentives right. On the market when it's businesses meeting customer's demands on the market, people decide to make investments for economic reasons. Right? Am I using these resources in the best way that I can earn a profit because I'm selling to a customer who's willing to give me for the good?.

"Have to be this mean we've been I I am. I think I'm not the only one when it comes to this. I'm shocked watching Duck Ford. I'm in the diplomacy that he's been pulling out as as this crisis unfolds and as for the federal government. They're they're doing a great job. I Wanna I wanNA thank the prime minister. He's doing a phenomenal job and making sure that he's working with the US administration along with the Deputy Prime Minister Freeland They're both doing an incredible job again with the federal government I can't ask for better better partner than What they've been doing so yes. There was an extent they do need each other and they definitely need the federal government. But there's something about the tone. That kind of goes beyond. I need you so I'm GonNa be nice to you. It really does seem to be coming together in the face of a sort of a single threat and you could only see this kind of thing in the face of a threat that threatens everyone kind of equally. Yeah no I don't WanNa take away from the collaboration and cooperation. It is a new. It is welcome and it is certainly happening. And it's happening because of the cooperation of everybody. That doesn't mean That these weekly conversations for instance that the prime minister is having with premieres are all easy. Peasy I think back to last week when there was yet another conversation about What the province is needed and there was another conversation about that. Emergency Measures Act. Which is the acts that would allow the federal government to go in and take control of a jurisdiction or an issue if the provinces felt that they needed support and help the provinces have to agree to it and when the prime minister brought it up on the phone according to many sources who liked to Gab It was it was not welcome at all. They they shut it down very quickly. The prime minister didn't want doesn't want to use it. He says but he brought it up again to see if they you know if anyone needed it and Bc Premier John Horgan who's who's doing well Battling Cope in nineteen. Shut it down by using the F. Word I like. Why are we wasting our time talking about this again so it's not that the conversations and debate aren't vigorous Around what is needed. But I do think people understand as you say there's a common enemy and because because that enemy travels across borders everyone's Sorta us to get along to some extent and what's interesting to see is not only how the federal government provinces are getting along but how the provinces themselves are getting along. I mean we talked about the Alberta donation or gift but even provinces that are dealing with this very differently BC Alberta testing at a much higher rate than for instance Ontario. You don't see one premier criticizing another or attacking another in fact. It's quite the opposite. They are looking for ways to help one another through their own particular challenges and while some people are faring better than others. It doesn't matter. They all seem to be willing to talk about it and improve it and move it forward. I certain extent. I think we'll see the return of the politics as usual. Not that long from now there was. There was a story of course earlier. This week of Jason Kenney the premium burda criticizing the chief of the health officer Teresa Tam about the decision of when to close the borders and when he did do that criticism we heard a few liberal cabinet ministers kind of coming to her defense and I was like yes partisan sniping back a little bit and felt kind of comforting. So it's not that this marks the entire disappearance of it but I'm what are the. What are the chances that This sort of combat tone sticks around well after the crisis I you know I honestly don't know I mean as you said earlier if we are maybe maybe hitting the peak in Ontario and Quebec and we still have lots of cases on the other side of that peak. We are going to be dealing with illness and death for some time and I don't think anybody is so inclined to see Partisanship right now. I think there is an inclination to have good questions of the government and have good accountability. And certainly we're seeing. The opposition parties federally pushed very hard to try. And do that and get Ample News Coverage. But I don't know that when this is over and and given what we just about the state of the economy and how long that might persist at some point you know first of all the government will have to turn off the taps it will have to find ways to You know make sure that the economy reopened in a coordinated way. I can see that being problematic. If for instance the federal government doesn't think that Scotch woman should do everything it's doing. How do they message that? How does that not become a potential conflict? I just I don't know that the way our our federation works allows for this sort of cooperation for a very long time. If you know what I mean..

"Only party. I really need this week. I WanNa talk about pandemic models and projections. We keep hearing about numbers numbers numbers numbers and what they might tell us about the future other dangers in releasing these numbers to the public or is it important for us to see as much as everybody else's seen some big questions they're rosie and also. I can't stop thinking about our relationship with the US right now. She's been fascinating to watch how the Prime Minister has tried to address it. The premiums are also getting pretty. Open opinionated. Ready to lots to talk about this week. Let's do it okay so I wanted to talk a little bit about something. That's like honestly it's fairly dark really but I think it's also important talk about it and that is the desire and pressure to know as much as possible about when this pandemic is going to end and how bad it's going to be so we saw I guess the most complete projections Most recently from Ontario and I say complete because BC puts models out before but they didn't want to include fatalities and Doug. Ford was really adamant about why he was doing this. So let's just hear what he had to say about the reasoning behind why the province was doing this over the next little while we will all have to make some very very difficult decisions and you deserve the same information I have. You deserve to see the same data that I see when I'm making decisions. You deserve the know what I know. When you're making decisions for yourself your family and your community and that is why of Astra medical experts to provide a full briefing to the public on where this could go. So he he was. He was right that that it was a lot of information and it was stark information. It was hard to even understand The the magnitude of what we were talking about at least in the case of Ontario where public health officials said over the course of the pandemic which they put out like eighteen months sort of thing Kobe. Nineteen could kill between three thousand to fifteen thousand people in the province. And I don't know about you but when I heard that I sort of went you know. Yeah Big Gulp So I don't know maybe how. How are you Sir living that those whose numbers I mean you know when I heard those numbers? I think they stopped me. My tracks genuinely unsettling information. I think when they were explaining Ontario's curve they said that we would have seen three hundred thousand cases by the end of this month. Had we not done anything but now we're on track to see about eighty thousand. I like I heard that actually found that kind of empowering was like hey I'm doing something I'm doing something by just staying at home. I'm helping sort of bring that number down from the curve that it was on to to a lower number so there is some power to be found but even with that like the model predicted that with the current measures. Like with literally. Everything that Ontario's doing right now. We're still on track to about sixty eight hundred deaths by the end of this month. Though is the model that they put out last week I keep oscillating between finding that really sobering and also like utterly panic-inducing and I think that that is sort of the reality of these kinds of projections so without pretending to be an epidemiologist which I can say every second day because it's hard to say the the idea is that they can track sort of the the number of cases hospitalizations And compare that to the the population and give you a sense of where we might be in in the curve and What what it might tell us about The number of people who could die one of the reasons. Those projections are so important from public. Health perspective is that they allow the system to prepare. Because what they're trying to do is make sure. There's enough capacity inside the healthcare system For a surge if and when it happened so I mean that's why it's necessary for health officials and for politicians Making the case to people stay home. Stay home stay home. Do this do this do this but I I do wonder to your point what is the what is the impact on the rest of us when when we read those kinds of things. Yeah I think there's a there's a distance whether we like it or not between how we want the government to treat us and how we actually say we want the government to treat us like we say we want the government to treat us like adults to give us the information so we can make informed choices but then there's like an episode. Paul said that twenty five percent of Canadians are still not following physical distancing rules so. I'm like I'm puzzled. When I look at those numbers and say okay. Great seventy five percent are hearing the message but twenty percent is still significant number of people who are not listening to what the government says. So when I think about Releasing the poll releasing the models releasing the models and what effects you want them to have on the population. I just wonder if they're going to change behavior over. It's just scary people for no reason because the people that really need those numbers are the healthcare professionals. It's interesting because Other provinces have released a projections. Jason Kenney Alberta's premier at least gave some sense of it on Tuesday night and I should say this is now Wednesday. We are expecting a more technical briefing from the province but he He suggested that. By the end of the summer Death figures ranging from four hundred thirty one hundred and about eight hundred thousand infections in that province released figures to Saying that they believe their cases will peak by April eighteenth and that Kovic nineteen could kill between twelve hundred and nine thousand people by the end of the month schedule and is expected to release projections the day we record this and others will follow suit but I actually talked to the BBC premier today. John Horgan and I asked why there was such reticence to to release those fatality numbers because that same reticence existed in Quebec but the premier sort of forced them to do it and and John Horgan had an interesting answer. He said this is not really the information that people need. They need information so that they can understand how long they might be in this and what they can do to help but releasing fatality numbers. Just for the sake of doing that. He didn't seem to think that that was really super beneficial for his province and we should point out that his province is actually starting to bend docker right when you see those numbers under such various between like the high numbers and the low numbers I'm not sure that most people know enough to to do know what to do with that information because it's such a wide sort of projection and so I understand actually the hesitance of releasing it. Because you see the large numbers and get really worried or see the somewhat lower numbers and maybe like not take it seriously I think like why don't you not focus on the numbers and just focus on what you need to tell people to do? That's right that's right and one of the things Prima Horrigan said to me. Today is because they're starting to see that bend the curve which everyone can see on their website now because they have this data out there. He's also concerned that people will get to chill about the physical distance. He measures right like it can do the opposite to so I interviewed An epidemiologist like a week ago or something and he said one thing to me that has just like sat in my brain since then and it was models always tell lies but some tell them better than others and that to me was just gave me good contacts for the fact that this is dressed A sense of things. It doesn't mean you can't change things and it doesn't mean that's where you're gonNA end up right I so I wanted to just swap over to the federal government though because they've been under increasing pressure right because obviously they also would need numbers to start a plan and know how to do things. So here's what What Justin Trudeau told us? I believe it was on Wednesday about this. We are trying to figure out where we are on the very on the curve within the various models what is very very clear is there are significant differences across the country in where various provinces are on their own curves overall as a country. I can say we. We have reached the point where we are later than many other countries.

"And I worry about that personally because we have in Canada in the global economy seen years of growth and anytime That cyclical process reaches this point. I think you know policy-makers he makers need to be very worried about recession about A lot of a lot of possible headwinds. So I just you know and the concern from Alberta's Verte whether The federal liberals are taking those economic concerns seriously of course Katie during the election campaign the liberals promised to deliver on on both climate action action and economic growth and. I'm wondering how much of the agenda hinges on bringing foreign investment back all that is certainly something that has been a challenge for the liberal government when it was when it had its majority mandate I think one thing that we're going to see a now that this the big chunk of the Nafta negotiations is sort of put to bed and Christopher Freeland freeland. Can you know get back to Canada. Take on this new role that she can sort of focus less on that candidate. US relationship and now focus on making sure that the concerns of of the prairies and the concerns parts of Canada that you know ended up you know the Liberals didn't win any seats in Alberta Saskatchewan and a big concern about that is has the economic climate and that's a big part of what is going on with the political result. We saw the twenty a nineteen election so now the Christa Freeland has has finished dealing with this abroad Justin Trudeau can lean on her. And we know that she's already started sort of an impromptu listening tour speaking with premier speaking with other Leaders to try and find find out ways that they can hear the concerns of the people that lives in those in those parts of the country and a big concern. There is investment in the economic climate. Speaking of Premieres Kelli Kelli. The Jason Kennedy was in Ottawa. Yesterday I met with the Prime Minister. Was He hoping to win from his meeting with Justin Trudeau. You know. I think most of all he was hoping to win attention for The the economic issues and The political issues that he's bringing up at a time where there is national focus focused on Alberta and Saskatchewan issues because of the the election results because the liberals were completely shut out of Alberta and catch one. There is attention on this and and and you know while while the federal government sees this as a pressing issue rather than you know international trade disputes. I think Mister sure Kenny is going to work that for all it's worth and you know the the things that he's asking for The headline items. Of course our you know guaranteed timeline for the completion. The Transmission Trans Mountain pipeline expansion A lift on the cap on the Fiscal Stabilization Fund which Jason Kenney very very politically has called a rebate on equalization even though it's not And he he is looking for some kind of wiggle room from the the federal government on Algirdas issues given the economic circumstances given that Alberta's economy has diverged so much from the national economy in the last five years. He's he's looking for some kind of he's looking for some kind of reset in the relationship. As you know Kristie of freeland takes over the the interprovincial file and I think you know while he's not going to get any kind of result this week there is going. I mean to be a push from Alberta for some kind of movement from Ottawa in the weeks and months ahead and and that will be watched very closely. Okay how do you think anything resulted from from that meeting. Yesterday that would allow Canada to claim progress. If not victories will. He didn't leave with any money in his pocket but I don't think he came with that in mind. I think he very successfully frame the conversation around Albertus demands but he so so he's he said what the conversation will be about over the next few months it's and You know and set the stakes out very clearly to to the population of Alberta. But it's also interesting. He stood down Actually early on on his demand to change See Forty eight NC sixty nine which he calls the new pipeline bills No more pipeline bills Those are those are the the bills that were passed last Towards the end of the the last parliament that that changed the way that the government oversees and Approves Natural Resource Development So so Jason. Kenney has has conceded publicly that okay the federal government is not going to change those. And he's he's he's changed how he's framed that conversation around approval of of natural resource development. So that's pretty pretty important and also you know by by focusing on the fiscal stabilization aspect of of transfer payments he's moved away from that equalization conversation as well which was A. I mean that was just an a nonstarter for for everybody involved. So you know there's been a bit of give and take and I think he. He's he's trying to convey a sense that he's leaving Ottawa with a bit of a warm and fuzzy feeling about the future conversations with auto with with the federal government but there has been a lot of movement I think on both sides here so far. How do you take down criminal network hidden in the shadows? Tell him that. I know that they're the ones who are running. The the largest child abuse website on the dark nets the journalists working to expose the darkest corners of the Internet. That's your playroom for. That's your baby's is close. That's my.

"I can't help but thinking you know when you bring up moving fast and breaking things that there's this very easy comparison here to make with Kenny's government and Premier Doug Ford in Ontario so he he also made rapid spending cuts after getting elected he fired the Ontario police. Deputy Commissioner Schnur who is awfully critical afford pointing a friend as commissioner and all of this did not go so well for Ford like he ended up getting booed at the Toronto Toronto Raptors Victory Parade. His poll numbers numbers plummeted. So why is Kenny going down. This road is it. Is it different for him. I think Kenny feel something that Doug Ford may not feel release may not have in reality and that are so you know so willing to support the head of the Conservative Party of Alberta Right now the Unite Conservatives That they're gonNA cut him a lot of slack. They caught him a lot of slack in the election. And it seems like they're cutting back on some of the some of the cuts especially because because there's an unique to al burden that you don't have an Ontario is as a certain bloodymindedness a certain willingness among a large segment of the public. That it's time of the the public sector to pay mass layoffs in the private sector in the oil patch. People have been taking a lot of pay cuts. A lot of people are unemployed and meanwhile they see the nurses and teachers and civil servants not being affected having their pay frozen sometimes perhaps increased. Although there there've been pay freezes lately so a lot of people out there say Kenny. It's their turn. It's the public sector is turned to feel the pain that we've been feeling that's a bloody mindedness. Eunice that doesn't exist in Ontario and Jason Kenny's proven much more effective at keeping the focus on the external fo- right on Trudeau on Ottawa. Yeah and the other point if I could add is that keeps my Doug Ford when he came came in really quickly as leader and got elected fast and may have not dot had the competence and the readiness to act as fast as he's been. He was moving. Jason Kenney had been working on this project for about three years before he got elected and is very methodical very experienced in the federal government so he knows how to more effectively. Move Fast and break things. That's a really good point Doug Ford's conservatives have been criticized for just completely bungling the communication strategy and also just like the rollout itself people have described described the atmosphere there is a total mess which is probably very different from Jason Kenzi. No there's not a sloppiness. There's a smooth food confidence centralization in this government is there a point though where this tips for him you know with Doug Ford I seem to maybe a few tipping points out where at first he wasn't apologizing or backtracking and now Gosh is a long list of backtracks that Doug Ford has taken at this. This point Kenny. Hasn't he still moving forward with incredible confidence and decided unapologetic nature. But we'll see this this election. Commissioner thing is is attracting acting a bunch of people to be ticked off or not only ticked off at. What Kenny is doing and there are few other spending scandals that they've had charter airplanes Albert taxpayers ears? We're on the hook for forking out more than sixteen thousand dollars to get a charter plane to fly group of prisoners from the Calgary stampede where the Alberta government was hosting breakfast to Saskatoon where there was a meeting of all of Canada's premiers some lavish trips to Britain by a senior Kenny aid. Recently these are the things things that The Old Albert at Torrey regime was thrown out for people see a return to quote unquote. Tory Lanez. Some people call it here. That could really come to bite right. Kenny there now accusations of corruption with this election commissioner strongman move and. I think that you know you'd imagine the Albert public may only stand so much of this before they say. Hang on a second. This is my stuff we voted for you. This is your with you. On the jobs pipelines Trudeau stuff. But right You know he can only go so far with everything else. Okay Chasing Marcus off. Thank you so much my pleasure.

"Hey you mentioned before that this government is moving fast and breaking things on a couple of different fronts. And so what are they doing. They introduced their budget a few days after the election late in with cuts and things they want to change right I know he's wiped out like two thousand public sector jobs right over over the next five five years something like that government Alberta jobs public sector it could be much larger. They're cutting post secondary education by a whole lot. They've cut funding for school boards. Words are who are trying to keep up with still rapid enrollment growth and you mentioned before he's also socially conservative although I remember when he was campaigning he promised to bring in legislation on abortion. But I understand there's now some legislation that kind of skirts around I promise now right. There is a private member's bill by a former Federal Kenny. The aid not Bill Kenny's himself but one that he may well agree with. We don't know yet that gives a whole bunch of safeguards to quote unquote conscience rights for physicians. It's basically protecting them from having to conduct services or a for for services they don't agree with such as emotion contraception medically assisted dying perhaps Some services for transgender individuals. The bill was introduced by Dan. Williams and elected Mla with Alberta is United Conservative Party he says existing protections that give medical professionals the right to opt out of services. They don't believe in. Don't go far enough. Because healthcare providers are required wired to make referrals. These are very controversial bills. I curious to get your perspective on how Albertans are reacting to this. Because you know the bottom line of Kennedy's campaign wasn't any of this right. It was jobs pipelines the economy. So is that what Alberta is getting here with these measures no but I think there's still a lot of goodwill toward Kenyan lot of relief that Rachel Notley who was not popular was gone. And we have somebody who is fighting. I'm for jobs. Biting more aggressively for Pipelines You know punching as much as they can toward Ottawa. A lot of what Jason Kenney seems to be banking on is what he was banking. On in the election that kamikaze matter there was an rcmp. Investigation to Kenny's own campaign during DEA during the election and when I would ask conservatives. How they're sweating this? They said it's fine people. Don't care people all about is jobs pipeline and and Trudeau and we're going to focus focus on those issues and people won't mind the other things that come up the other Barbs attacks on his social conservatism. Can you will get reelected. We'll forget all about this and Info wife will get on under. The EP. Couldn't have survived another four years. We're in trouble now. I'm hoping he's going to bring the jobs back or willing to overlook all the rest of it and what is the status of that investigation. Now that is not being touched by the Election Commission matter. That is into voter fraud issues. which seemed to be out of the purview? or at least Above the purview. At this point of the election commissioner there be investigated by the RCMP. And now there is an out of province prosecutor later Handling this file. So it's out of the government's hands.

"Jason Hello Hello thanks for coming back. I feel like we just got to talk to you so lucky. F How burqas getting busy in the news for whatever reason lately. Oh Oh you guys are in high demand so look this. Bill isn't law yet. It's been passed but It has to get royal. Assent as I understand it. But if if it does get royal assent Lauren. Gibson's job as Alberta's election commissioner disappears and so can you tell me exactly what Gibson was investigating gating. Sure so Gibson was actually a fairly new had a new job elections commissioner. It used to be election. Alberta was investigating wrongdoing undoing under the Elections Act and Alberto but was not very effective very few powers very little activity DP created this a bigger office independent dependent office and appointed somebody who was a former elections Alberta chief electoral officer which who'd been fired by the government so there was already bad led to start with but here comes in learn Gibson and he's very dog it. He was finding a lot of people for excessive over the CAP contributions I was racking up tens of thousands of dollars in fines to both sides and use EP but one of the big things he was doing and living two hundred thousand dollars of fines lines was against one of Kenny's leadership rivals in the two thousand seventeen United Conservative leadership race Jeff Calloway who had concocted. It seems some very shady scheme regarding the financing of his campaign basically using Straw donors excessive corporate donations which are banned it like essentially this corporation was donating to his campaign through individuals. But the money wasn't actually coming from them. That's right one. Big Donor. Cut a sixty thousand dollar corporate for check and it and that money was divided up to make it look legal and Calloway's also known as the kamikaze candidate right. This is something that we've covered on this podcast before. That's the thing if you if you'd seen the talking to you over the air you would have seen US money. Talk about him. As a rival there was always allegations and suspicion. That case in Kenny's team was putting him up just to undercut on. Well rose leader Brian Gene and sure enough right before the general election started. The media got a hold trove of documents confirming their emails emails between the campaigns confirming when he would resign how to act sharing means a cache of documents leaked to the show senior. Kenny campaign staffers. I routinely contacted calloway staffers. They offered strategic directive speeches and opposition research for callaway to attack. Brian Gene. All all the while Calloway plan to drop out of the race and throw his support behind Kenny. But there have been denials right from Jason Kenny. And certainly calloway about this. They say were just talking about this. We're just having discussions campaigns discuss policy and strategy among each other you know as friendly rivals in the past. They don't don't acknowledged that this was a sham candidate But it's not what the Ethics Commissioner was investigating and we should be clear that Jason Kenny's party has not been implicated into into this whole financial investigation. Right that's right. It's just a callaway campaigners. There was stuff that Jason Kenney leadership campaign was doing like soliciting certain types types of donations. That is being investigated by the elections. Commissioner or at least has been until dot dot dot. Okay so you know I think that the segues pretty well into my next question question. Of course Kenny win. Won The premiership with a very strong majority in Alberta he brags about it. That was a really tough campaign. But I was gratified. We ended up with the thirty five percent of the popular vote. The largest number of votes ever cast for Party now Berta electoral history the highest popular vote in in a couple of decades at least and now the UCLA has three quarters of the seat so they pushed this bill through bill. Twenty two like. Why do they want to do that? Well there's the defacto reason and the official official reason the de facto reason is they don't like this ethics commissioner. They love to sideline him and with this majority they can do this in within an omnibus. I'm the boss Bill. One hundred and seventy two page bill. that they introduced on Monday and have passed on Thursday. Well that is quick. That is quick the only time you normally see them do that is for emergency legislation to say for us. You know striking rail workers postal workers back to the job. It's unusual to see especially an omnibus complex bill with that does many other things pushed through the legislature before it can be really get much public. Scrutiny he is astonishing. Why is Jason Kenney saying they WANNA get rid of this position they WANNA get rid of this guy? It's worth noting. This conveniently happened on a week. Where Jason Kenney was actually out of the country he's in Houston Texas on a trade mission but this is a government bill so his prints are all over this? The the official reason is that this is part of deficit reduction in good proper management other provinces. And this is true. Don't have an independent body as elections commissioner. That's is an an organization. Within their own elections branch like elections Newfoundland et CETERA. And the other point is that this could save money. This will say two hundred thousand dollars a year ear. Jason Kenny and talk with us before is aggressively trying to curb. Alberta's deficit okay. He's positioning this as a cost. Saving Measure Asia. I if this bill gets Royal Gibson loses his job is there a scenario in which he could continue the investigations that he's been doing. That's the other argument that the Kenny Conservatives are making this doesn't actually necessarily kill investigations or killing investigative function it will now fold into the Election Alberta Office. They say that the electoral officer could still higher back. Mr Gibson to to do this job doesn't necessarily kill the investigations. The House Speaker. This is a prime example of the official opposition. overplaying their hand yet again. Nobody has fired a law enforcement agency Mr Speaker that is completely completely and utterly ridiculous The election Mr Office in position remains Just now consolidated within the recommendation of the current Chief Election Commissioner election commissioners the province of Berta to another province consolidates the process save taxpayers upwards of a million dollars Mr Speaker it protects all current turn investigations investigations activities that their argument. That maybe he won't know he might not. This sends a clear message to any officer officer legislature. That this use EP majority is watching you and you may not have your dog much longer. If you're pursuing things pushing the envelope to aggressively over the reality is that under a new management. The process is very likely to change in the same way that had donald trump had the Chutzpah to a fire. Fire Robert Mueller. The Special Prosecutor Special Prosecution and that report still would have been investigated and still would have been pursued but with a different leader. You get a different approach. Maybe this wouldn't be deemed as a priority like it is. It's a very unusual rather contemptuous frankly of the notion of accountability within a democracy. But Jason Kenney feels he can get away with this. Do you think Jason Kenney knows what he's doing here that the optics. This could be quite bad again again. This is his risk calculation that he knows the optics about. He's a guy who's very aware of optics. Gosh he's somebody who bombed around the province for three years in a blue blue pickup truck and anybody who knows anything about him from. Ottawa knows that that is not his inherent style but he knows the positives of good image. He knows that this is burning political the capital that this will not be a popular thing. This will be something that is harsher receive certainly by critics perhaps by some soft Tory supporters. But he thinks he has so much goodwill he can burn through this let. Let's talk about the opposition here critics of the Bill Rachel Notley as we heard at the beginning of the show. She is furious about this. Hey she is going all all out on this and they've been hitting the panic button on a few measures measures that Jason Kenney is doing as he moves fast and break things but this is perhaps the most urgent they've they've They've reacted and what are they doing to try and thwart this she. She held that stunt of being thrown out of the legislature. They they've written to the Ethics Commissioner Detroit flags some of the conflict of interest. Well maybe they could delay this bill. The Ethics Commissioner wrote back and said that's not something I'm normally do. She even went to the step as far as writing to the left handed governor who would provide royal assent urging lefthanded governor not to sign this. Bill we've not heard anything back yet I I would be happy to meet with her to discuss it more detail.

"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.

"Albert premier Rachel. Not least says in order to get oil prices back up. Production has to slow down yesterday with more pipeline capacity far in the distance and supplies of cheap oil piling up MS Notley announced a mandatory eight point seven percent cut in the amount of oil. The province is pumping out. Here is the premier speaking during a cabinet meeting today. We are in a crisis the crisis that is not of our making. But it is up to us to fix people are frustrated that failure after failure of successive federal governments to get pipelines. Have put us into this position. This is a time for unity and for resolve. I specially want to stress this to Ottawa. We need them to toss the half-hearted statements away. We don't actually need Ottawa sympathy, we need Ottawa's full attention. We need them to step up and help us. Bringing an end to this crisis Berta premier Rachel Notley explaining her decision to cut oil production in an attempt to bring up oil prices. Jason Kenney is the leader of the province's opposition the United conservative party, we reach mister Kenny in Edmonton this to Kenny you have called for an even larger mandatory oil production cut than the end EP. We are we living in strange times when conservative party calls for government intervention in the marketplace.

And we saw what happened with bombs being delivered to people asked week a man who said he took his ideas, many of them from Donald Trump. Do you hold Donald Trump responsible for what we've seen in the past few days? I think that to create the impression that these people are his friends. It's not useful. You have to be responsible when you're a leader. And in many of his pronouncement wouldn't I've been completely unacceptable in Canada. I'm not in American.

"Justin to was celebrating him as the conservative who gets it, and then you've got Berta where Jason Kenney could take over next. So that's not just a few premiers more than half the Canadian population. Again, I'm Jason Kenney has to be careful not to assume the job premium until he wins it in elections Mr. Pallister again, that would be a good question for Mr. Palestine because he decides to change his plan or withdraw plan that he had shared with us that included putting a price on pollution. If he then decides to sort of flip flop or change his approach, I don't think that Manitobans who have seen firsthand. Also, the very real effects of climate change in previous years should should necessarily think that that constitutes the best plan. We, we talked a few minutes earlier about a price on pollution and making polluters pay is one of the most significant ineffective elements. It's by no means the only element and we have in a climate plan with a number of provinces, the whole. Series of other measures which are also part of reducing our emissions, but we were disappointed that premier Pallister decided to change his mind. It isn't your job to keep these people on side. My job is to work with these people in a constructive way and just because premier Pallister and I may disagree in terms of what's the most effective climate action plan. We appreciate premier Pallister's national leadership on the issue of removing trade barriers between provinces and territories. So we can still work very constructively with premium Pallister and frankly, his leadership's important on that issue which is also important for the Canadian economy like dealing with climate change.
