Ottawa’s best friend? Notley’s opposition to a Fair Deal for Alberta

Ever since the Fair Deal Panel Report was released, Rachel Notley and the NDP have shown what little interest they have in standing up for Alberta’s best interests. 

Notley even shared a Toronto-based editorial from the Globe and Mail that slammed the Fair Deal report!

The column completely disregarded the idea that  Alberta is not getting fair representation in the House of Commons (guess they haven’t looked at a map!) and mocked Alberta’s efforts to get better treatment on equalization, even though Albertans sent $240 billion more to Ottawa than what we got back in transfers or services in the last decade.

And it doesn’t stop there!

They called the report a “distraction” and “cynical” – even though tens of thousands of Albertans gave their feedback to the Fair Deal panel! 

The NDP attacked the very notion about Albertans studying the benefits of an Alberta Pension Plan and panned the idea that Albertans are responsible enough to make up their minds 

That shouldn’t be too big of a surprise. During her time in government, the NDP made no progress on the issue of equalization. They were slow to stand up to Ottawa on the no-more-pipelines-law Bill C-69. They rubber stamped Ottawa’s carbon tax.

The fact is, Albertans demand that our issues get front and centre of the national agenda. The NDP plan of going along to get along with Ottawa led to three pipelines getting cancelled and several rounds of legislation from Ottawa interfering in Alberta’s provincial jurisdiction.
