As Premier Alison Redford travels to meet with Quebec Premier Jean Charest Wednesday, her timing has opponents and pundits alike second-guessing what she’s up to.This is what scares me, "Canadian Energy Strategy", and she's going to Quebec of all places to pitch it? Are we looking at a NEP2? Quebec is happy to take our money (over 8 BILLION a year) and they still bash us internationally on our oil sands. Our Premier should be making Charest come to Alberta to see the oil sands that he likes to bash so much, even though they are the engine of Canada. What is his province producing? Asbestos!!
The visit takes place as hearings on the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline fire up in Kitimat, B.C. - and days before the Jan. 16 kick-off of the Council of the Federation in Victoria, where 13 provincial and territorial chiefs will meet on a two-day agenda topped by health care.
“I’m sure Canadian Energy Strategy will come up, among other things ... it’s an opportunity to talk about common issues and possible common concerns,” said Kim Misik, Redford’s media relations manager.
She is a very weak supporter of the oil sands. I guess when all your votes come from the leftist teacher's unions, you can't afford to support an industry that puts money in all of Canada's pockets.
Bring in the Clowns! Charest and Red Ali, a match made in heaven!
Side note: I asked my son to quickly help me make Red Ali a clown (it was getting close to bedtime), and he asked me who she was....and he is old enough to vote now! Is that how disengaged young voters are today? Even with a political Mom? Yikes!
