Do you have a face only a mother could love? Face made for Radio?

To answer the second part of the question. Radio stations can't employee him because the staff that needs to work there, technicians and stuff, keep throwing up when they look at him.

Nothing but love for ya DrCaleb. :)

You are being disingenuous. You post a link where Kenney states where he wants to cut business taxes to encourage businesses to invest in Alberta. You than show us a video designed to highlight the pitfalls of lowering the taxes on business. That video clearly shows that not only did Kansas lower taxes on business, but they completely eliminated them on thousands of businesses, and lowered the income tax rates for everyone as well. Its apples and oranges. There is a huge difference in lowering taxes on business to get them to come invest, and lowering or eliminating all your state revenue streams except sales taxes and DMV fees. Huge difference. Kansas should have just lowered taxes on new businesses that promise to employ a certain amount of people to see if it worked or not. Maybe it works,maybe it don't. Its worth a shot.

Painting the picture that lowering taxes on business is always a losing proposition is just wrong. Lets look at Ireland from that same time frame.
https://www.dailysignal.com/2018/05/14/ ... -happened/
Foreign companies pay 80% of Irish corporate income tax, and employ 25% of the work force. The Irish economy grew by 26.3% in 2015 due to foreign investment. What was Canada doing in 2015? You were sliding into recession by the end of the year because of lower oil prices. One very important Province slowed down, and dragged the entire county's economy into recession. One very important Province where the majority of jobs are created by foreign companies. So I can see why Kenney is very interested in keeping the foreign money flowing in. He might want to start attracting companies involved in manufacturing though. Big oil is moving out. No sense in procuring something when you can't get it to market. Its like setting up a fish market in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. Nothing Kenney can do about that. He is on the right track, wrong industry.


You make some good points, but cutting corporate taxes by 4% will blow a huge hole in the the province's revenues, which is already the lowest in Canada by a big margin:

As you can see, there already is an 'Alberta Advantage' here.

The problem in Alberta isn't corporate taxes, it's as you noted, getting product to market and corporate taxes don't make one bit of difference in that equation. Because of that, it makes little sense to try and compete with US states with lower tax rates (and more pipelines) than Alberta.

Aside from the NWT and Ontario (neither of which are large oil and gas producers), Alberta already has the same level of corporate taxes as every other jurisdiction in Canada.

All these tax cuts are going to do is provide justification for massive cuts to health care, education, infrastructure and everything else the government does for Albertans.

I wasn't a fan of Notley's massive deficits, but surely there must be some middle ground where taxation and government spending can meet and be fair to everyone, not just corporations and the wealthy.
