Kenny’s latest rant about the Federal Government stepping into Provincial Jurisdiction is plainly BS but it has a reason.
Conservatives don’t run a set of books. They run out of one account “General Revenues” All the money taken in by the province from any source goes into General Revenues. Using this account is how the Conservatives managed to strip 760 billion dollars from the Heritage Trust Fund.
All profits above 5% were taken from the Heritage fund and dropped into General revenues where they were used to reduce taxes for the oil companies. This in turn ended up in companies on the Gulf Coast.
The Feds are pouring billions of dollars into Alberta to fight COVID 19. They demanded accountability for where the money was being spent.
Back in our history, Ralph Klein actually refused Health Care transfers from Ottawa rather than explain where they were going to spend it in their privatization rush.
