Following news site's critical reports, Kenney hints at retaliation as PressProgress fires back 24.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga Apparently the stenographic efforts of Postmedia's Alberta newspapers as a virtual wing of the United Conservative Party campaign team were not enough for the victorious Jason Kenney, Alberta's premier designate. Journalists and publications that provided less obsequious coverage of the campaign leading up to the April 16 election will be attacked and, by the sound of it, silenced if possible. Buried deep in a rambling paean to Kenney in Monday's edition of the National Post, the flagship of the Postmedia newspaper chain, is a revealing attack on PressProgress . It turns out Kenney is shocked and appalled the progressive news site broke a series of important hard news stories that detailed corruption, bigotry and extremism within UCP ranks. He is threatening to do something about it. Meanwhile, PressProgress quickly shot back, comparing Kenney's threats to those of Donald Trump and standing by "our fact-based, independent, reporting in Alberta." Have no doubt about it, the damning ...

Nearly a third of Alberta's electorate voted in advance polls -- whatever can it mean? 16.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga One of the mysteries of the 2019 Alberta election campaign that comes to an end with today's election is the truly astonishing number of advance ballots cast. Nearly 700,000 Albertans voted in advance polls. That is close to 30 per cent of the electorate. This is unheard of in Alberta, and almost certainly in the rest of the country as well, where growing voter apathy combined with vote suppression by conservative parties has been situation normal for years. We can speculate about why so many people voted early this year, and what it means, but for the moment at least, speculation is all it is. As a result, for a brief but happy moment, it can mean whatever you want it to! You can say whatever you like about what it means too, and no one can convincingly prove you wrong ... at least until the votes start to be tallied tonight. Accordingly, if you listen to what you hear on social media, conservatives will tell you it is a massive vote against the government and a wave of support for ...
