Kenney defiantly challenges Trudeau on climate 23.4.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada The summer of 2019 will be "the summer of repeal" according to Jason Kenney, who will be sworn in as the next premier of Alberta on April 30. The UCP leader plans to recall the legislature in May to rapidly undo the legislative program of the outgoing NDP government; particularly its Climate Leadership Plan. At the top of the list to be repealed is an Alberta carbon tax imposed as part of a grand bargain negotiated by the NDP with representatives of the oil industry. In return for a tax on consumers -- it could have fallen entirely on Big Oil as part of an existing large-emitters carbon levy -- a significant group of oil sands producers agreed to support an NDP cap on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Small oil patch operators remained generally negative.

At the same time, fighting with Jason Kenney helps keep him in the spotlight, which is unfortunate and redundant, since the media are already dogging him diligently. Perhaps the premier could gain more votes by highlighting what her NDP government has achieved in four short years in office, after 44 years of Conservative rule. From raising the minimum wage to $15, to including farm workers in workers' compensation, to affirming LGBTQ+ rights, Rachel Notley's government has moved the province of Alberta a long way towards living in the 21st century. Decades of Conservative and Social Credit governments have left Alberta with a right-wing reputation. As premier, Rachel Notley comes in a direct line from the lesser-known Prairie co-operative tradition, e.g., the Calgary Co-op is the largest retail co-operative in North America. And of course, ...
