Alberta job loss has nothing to do with the NDP taking power.

I don't know about you but terrorism and ISIS are quite far down on my list of priorities. Why do the Cons think that's all we care about?

Does anyone remember when she said people in Prince George were burning crosses as we speak?

Her direct mail in my mailbox is so ugly and such a waste of money and paper.

I assume in this riding it's always been a vote against the conservatives, not a vote for Hedy Fry. I bet a zebra could run for the liberals in her riding and still win.

Anyone who believes the NDP had any real effect on Alberta's current economic situation hasn't been paying much attention to any global or even national economic standing. People aren't losing jobs because NDP wants to add more corporate taxes, people are losing jobs because all they had was a bunch of fucking temp jobs to begin with. I know plenty of people still raking in the money up in fort mac. The difference is, they weren't pushing brooms underneath an electrician for 100k a year.

To think it has had a small or insignificant impact is ignorance.

While the situation I mentioned is probably just irony, my friend works in a relatively high position for one of the largest staffing companies in the oil patch, JV driver. A massive company. As soon as the NDP came into power the CEO sent out a information package basically saying that depending on how tax structure and impact to the companies they supply forces to works out, they could be potentially pulling out of Alberta completely and focusing on their interests in the southern states.

This is a CEO reacting directly to the NDP coming into power, that isn't a coincidence like my scenario was.

Thats someone saying there is a possibility of something happening relating to the possibility of something that hadn't even happened at that point. People are being laid off because oil is high in supply and low in demand.
Granted what you are saying is a very important thing to take into consideration, that hasn't yet become the reason.
NDP most definitely could fuck shit up temporarily with higher tax structures, but thats not in play at the moment. If there was actually high demand and low supply for oil at the moment, those companies would still be clawing at our resources even with a tax increase.

I voted NDP for Alberta lol the Cons needed to go.

The people going off about how the NDP are destroying the Province.. well, they are simple folk.

Thought the dippers are totally fucking retarded for boosting their salaries by >7% while the Province is grinding to a halt financially lol

Doesn't matter what the NDP do in Alberta for the next 4 years, Cons will be back 100%, they are just on time out right now.

It's nice to see the current polls, people finally realize that Mulcair is full of shit and it's impossible for him to deliver on his every promise and still balance the books.

I'm voting Con (no shock there), more and more people seem to be coming to the dark side with me as the election date creeps closer.

The uneducated and elderly are the target audience for the Conservative Party, it's pretty much like the Republican Party of the North. Fear, Fear, and you can't do anything yourself... Only we can save you philosophy, just like the South use religion and good old white folk talk to get the masses riled up

^Bring back Nelson Riis! Kamloops was voting NDP before it was cool. They weren't voting for a party or a leader, but for the local MP because he was good at it.

I suspect it will very likely turn out to be a Cons minority as well, with the Libs coming in for a close 2nd. What I cannot gauge, however, is how close that Libs 2nd will be.

Also, at this point, I wouldn't completely rule out a Lib-NDP coalition government as well. If the Libs & NDP try to pull that card, however, I suspect Steve Harpy would try the parliament prorogue card again (just like he did in the past).

So your bet is $100 CAD on a conservative minority win?

Just want to clear that up.

If that's the bet. I'll take you up on it.

NDP promises more health care for seniors, increased pension amounts, reduced pension age, and lower/free tuition.. and you think the Cons are trying to capitalize on the young and the elderly?

The Cons target audience are those that are self sufficient and are more or less happy with the level of Gov. serivices that exist and want to avoid additional taxation.

Go educate yourself, dullard.

I thought it was Christians who believed the earth was around 10000 years old, wanted the government to fight the Muslim hoard, and cut vital services.
