Letter: Kenney’s approval rating speaks for itself

By Letter to the Editor on January 7, 2021.

Dear editor,

While Ian Parkinson desperately tries to defend this phony Conservative, Liberal turned Reformer in Jason Kenney (in a Dec. 26 letter), the comments we are hearing and the polls prove him dead wrong. More and more Albertans are admitting that they made a huge mistake in electing him.

A poll conducted at the federal level gave him the second lowest approval rating in Canada of all premiers and one conducted by the News paints likely a more realistic picture of only a 19 per cent approval rating with Notley’s at 67.

It was former MLAs from the Lougheed era who taught me members of the Reform Party can’t be trusted. Looking after their own wellbeing and that of their rich friends while spreading lies is what they do best, and they don’t care who gets hurt in the process. That’s exactly what Kenney has been doing.

The Reformers’ track record at elections also proves what these Conservative MLAs stated. Reformers Stephen Harper, Preston Manning, Brian Jean, Danielle Smith, Jim Prentice and Andrew Scheer were all losers at election time, and Kenney will likely be next. Add in the Reformers from the Klein government, Stelmach government and Redford governments and none of them have been smart enough to suggest the obvious solution to our financial problem, like Notley did. Follow what Lougheed was doing by collecting proper oil royalties, taxes and health care premiums and run this province properly like Lougheed did and Norway and Alaska are doing.

This lie that we don’t have a revenue problem, only a spending problem while he slashes taxes to benefit his rich friends and then promises to cut 11,000 health care jobs to make up for this revenue cutting stupidity shows how ignorant this guy is and doesn’t care who gets hurt.

Amusing. How quickly you have forgotten that Trudeau, Morneau et al are the kings/queens of finding benefits for their rich buddies. The CP always quickly and conveniently sweeps that dirt under the carpet though. And anyone that still believes that Notley is anything but a little ball of virtue signalling hate that thinks the world revolves around her, well it’s just sad tbh. She has no solutions for any problems, but like all leftists, she is good at faking it and fooling the flock.

Can you explain why the true Alberta conservatives shouldn’t start suing guys like you who are blindly supporting these phony conservatives and creating a nightmare for our citizens? Would you like to provide us with some proof that you would use in court to defend yourself? Lawyers tell us you can’t you have absolutely nothing, and there is nothing stopping us from suing you, do you want to try?.
All the true conservative in my world think that Notley was a lot more like Peter Lougheed and she was on the right track of gradually increasing taxes and was planning to start increasing oil royalties in 2021. Can you prove she wasn’t? By the way these are lawyers, oilmen, accountants, bankers and former MLAs from the Lougheed era who are saying it.
Your ignorance has given our farmers and ranchers a nightmare because of orphan wells mess and you apparently don’t care about our citizens who have died because of the horrible way Kenney has handled the Covid situation.
Maybe in the future you should keep your sarcastic comments to yourself or you had better be prepared to get sued.
