Canada is one of only 2 nations globally with AAA rating with the strongest net-debt-to-GDP in the G7. We are borowing from ourselves at 0.25% so Canadians don’t have to pay 5% bank loans or 19% credit card rates. We will protect Canadians’ Health.
Starting with Klein, the Conservatives cut the earnings of the heritage trust fund to 5% taking everything above into General Revenues where it financed his 10% flat tax. This drained 760. Billion dollars up until Prentice lost the government. On the way out the door, he said “I guess we hit theHeritage too hard”. Kenny recently pulled the heritage to study it. This means he’s looking for a way to get it into AIMCO where he has easy access to it.LikeReply2 Replies2 Replies on John Clark’s commentStatus is onlineJohn Clark YouRetired4h
Brett Schaffer There was a period of support from Ottawa before it was called transfer payments, yes. Further, there was no contribution from the Chase Manhattan Bank as the Wild Rose Party proclaimed. However, the Chase Manhattan bank did pull the Mormon Temple out of hawk for 100,000 dollars.LikeReply

Hey Kent, how many billions are transferred from Alberta annually through equalization? Would a stop to this give us a balanced budget? Asking for a friend.🤔Like 2Reply2 Replies2 Replies on Brett Schaffer’s commentStatus is onlineJohn Clark YouRetired3h
G5 network is so named because it works on the 1MM wavelength. Has an ability to go through most things but can only cover distances by repeaters. It hooks up your cell phone to your desktop, your thermostat and your camera. Plus your vehicle.
It doesn’t matter which system you choose as far as technology is concerned. Bell Media is in charge of post media and our IP providers. Brought into Canada by Stephen Harper on his promise to “change Canada so we would never recognize it”
This vertical arrangement of Media ensures the Conservatives get favourable coverage and the Liberals get a bent version of whatever is going on. However, I can tell you this, If you have a secret, keep it in a notebook, not on your phone or computer.
High-band 5G, or millimetre-wave, is the really new stuff. So far, this is mostly airwaves in the 20-100GHz range. These airwaves haven’t been used for consumer applications before. They’re very short range; our tests have shown about 800-foot distances from towers. But there are vast amounts of unused spectrum up there, which means very fast speeds using up to 800MHz at a time.
O’Tool, is a Conservative, put into office by the far-Right, (Harper’s crew and the US Republicans) He is presently telling the Government to get rid of G5, Huawei in his move to protect US industry which, is his first choice in any case, why Canada always looses when dealing with the Conservatives.
Bottom line is Bell Media engineered Conservative sweeps provincially. Huawei, however, has been working in BC for 10 years and, no record of any problems anywhere and they enjoy the same service we do!
If you watched the Biden/Trump “debate” the other day you had a sampling of Trumps bald face lies. In Canada O’Tool is using the Republican play book only he is after single line headlines for the Globe and Mail to pick up on.
The WE folder, forever. It was determined the Federal Government did not pay WE anything! Yet O’Tool’s people think this is the best story in town.
Covid 19: A single line from Conservative benches, inflammatory and sensational and totally irrelevant. Ideal for the Globe.
Last election the Conservative Facebook page was alive with prospect for changes to Canada’s constitution. The Cons need 6 provinces and 50% of the population in order to do this. Time to take out some Conservative provincial Governments! They are better than half way there now, all they need is the Federal Chair. Most got into office provincially using their connection to Bell Media and Post Media. They are doing the same thing right now!
The USA is totally self sufficient in petroleum. It needs nothing from Canada in this regards. A Keystone pipeline is to move oil away from a finished Trans Mountain Expansion! This is more than a quite fixation of Kenny’s! It is a danger to our sovereignty!
The US order enough oil from Alberta to keep the American companies viable. It isn’t because they need it. This oil is processed though the Gulf Coast and is exported from there. All of Kenny’s efforts on pipelines are to keep our oil flowing to the Gulf Coast!.
It was front and Centre at the time of the last #provincial elections! Carried mostly on the Conservative Facebook page, the ideas of what to change in our constitution. Up front was privatizing the CPP and changing the numbers to adjust the Constitution. As it stands now, it takes six provinces with 50% of the population plus the Federal Chair to make changes. They are more than half way there! They need only the Federal Chair.
Most of the changes as I recall you won’t like. There was talk of making Canada self sufficient, Let Quebec export Electricity west and Quebec would take Alberta oil. The thing is, Alberta’s power is owned by cities and they would have to give up that income. Quebec? It had just lost it’s market in the US and still had a surplus, still charging way too much.
At this point in time we should collectively change Conservative Governments in office provincially.
Off subject, but the same time frame Australia elected a Conservative Government in a major upset, no one could see it coming. Australia had just installed Bell into their country.
Consider, most were not put there honestly, Quebec, and Alberta are only two such provinces. They were put into office with the help of Bell Media and their 200 post newspapers. How it worked:
Scheer would make some wild statement in the house where he could not be attached legally. In most cases he never received any acknowledgement. The Globe and Mail would pick up on whatever was said and publish it as fact when it was not. Then the other Post Media news papers would spread it around the country and it would finally end up on our six PM news broadcast.
Only one example of such predatory action. Scheer accused Trudeau of misappropriation for charging 7000 dollars to the Government for his kids playground. At the same time accused him of taking foreign gifts and not declaring them. The Globe made headlines of this and it was spun out as outlined above.
What actually happened was Trudeau paid 7000 from his own pocket for a playground set for his kids. The Government would not let him install same and did so themselves at a cost to the taxpayer of 300.00 and change.
The Gift received was the Aga Kahn, a personal friend of the Trudeau family had given Trudeau a pair of sunglasses, value $300.
This managed a weeks time on the Globe and several days on your local news.
It was a steady diet like this that got the Conservatives across Canada elected. And, they are still doing it where possible.
Did we have a rush of separation publicity before the Conservatives took office? NO!
Where do the calls for separation emanate from? Southern Alberta, those people who go shopping cross border on a daily basis. Do calls for separation come from Southern Ontario? NO!
This means the problem lays with the Mormon congregation in Southern Alberta! And, as founders of the Conservative movement in Canada, they continue to push their agenda.
The last elections when the Conservatives were assured a windfall election with the help of Bell Media and Post media intervention the Con Facebook place had a long list of wish lists regarding changing our Constitution. One item was to make it easier to succeed from Canada! Others dealt with power regulations which would have us buying our electricity from Quebec at advanced prices. There were forages into the US system of Health care and the ability to dissolve the CPP!
To change the Constitution it takes 6 provinces having 50% of the population and the Conservatives are better than halfway there! All they need now is the Federal Chair!
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.
We are 66 years beyond the perfect circle around the sun. We have 34000 years to go until we reach the point furthest away. In these 66 years we should have been cooling off but, we are heating up.
Then, we have another 34000 years to move back to the perfect circle. The way we are going, animal life, will not exist for the journey. The oceans are presently absorbing much of our excess carbon dioxide turning the oceans into carbolic acid. As the oceans turn acidic, the fish quit spawning males and the species die. There goes a major food source and probably trade wars as fishermen can’t understand the loss of catch other than overfishing.
In this citreous journey, the earth will see a dozen ice ages or more. These things are just too large for a conservative mind to get around and it allows their constant state of denial to rule. Because of this, I see earth turning into another Venus somewhere in our trip forward and all life as we know it will end.
Considering the majority of our provincial premiers were not elected to office but achieved office though the manipulations of Bell Media and their 200 newspapers there will come a point of total abandon or absolute uprising.
Author Power generation in ON is a fiasco shared by both parties. Each has done their share of damage over three governments. Nuclear generation with construction faults in cooling. This happened all over the US too. Global warming fouled up their cooling abilities therefor their out puts. You see the same scenarios in Europe where rivers are too warm to provide the design cooling.
John Clark When faced with overheating because of a lack of cooling mechanisms (water lake river etc) the power operator will cut back the output. This brings on brown-outs ,black-outs etc. This in turn means less profitability for the Generator and possibly subsidies from the government depending on which markets they are hooked up to the purpose being to cover the shortfall in their own generation. Once up and operating the power generation is a resource more than an industry.
