Appeal dismissal puts Alberta young adults transitioning out of government care in limbo

A Supreme Court appeal dismissal has left hundreds of young adults in Alberta bracing to be cut off from a program that helps them transition out of government care.

The participants were previously eligible to remain in the Support and Financial Assistance Agreements (SFAA) program until they turned 24, but the UCP government reduced the age of eligibility to 22.

The legislative change was delayed for more than a year by an injunction granted to one of the affected recipients known as A.C. in court documents.

In January, the Alberta Court of Appeal overturned the injunction but warned that care must be taken to minimize harm to impacted participants. On June 24 the Supreme Court of Canada dismissed A.C's application for appeal.

"It is a bit unsettling for me but I'm just really trying to push through it and hope that everyone else is supported by their case workers, just like mine is supporting me," said A.C., 22, who is still moving ahead with legal action challenging the constitutionality of the change.

The UCP seems to think that cutting the small players will somehow make large budget savings. But putting youth on the streets will only cost more in support costs than just meeting their needs to begin with.

Same reason they are looking to hack nurses' pay. They aren't of value, right?

When I volunteered with a local non-profit a few years back, we went to a United Way presentation that showed leaving someone homeless costs society $100,000 per year on average, while putting them in subsidized housing and supporting them costs less than $40,000 per year.

The reason is homeless people are constantly in the ER, interacting with police and the legal system, and non-profits that assist them, and society pays most of those costs.

But ideology always trumps fiscal sense with the UCP, unless it has something to do with oil and gas, then the sky's the limit! :evil:

This sounds like Communism.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney shuffles his cabinet

$1:
Culture, multiculturalism and status of women minister Leela Aheer was demoted from cabinet.

Aheer recently chastised the premier for holding a private gathering with other cabinet ministers on the rooftop patio of a government building in contravention of physical distancing public health orders.


So, Kenney likes people expressing their opinion, but not if you criticism him.

Yep, we're fucked
- W. Axl Rose


Former long-time conservative voter here. Voted twice for the NDP provincially but still voted Tory in the last fed election. So I can hardly be accused of being a Trudeau-lover with a resume like that. Yet yesterday one of the truly great and hilarious things I've seen this past year happened when Trudeau & Nenshi stood at a photo-op podium in Calgary and did the political equivalent of shoving Jason Kenney's face in shit.

Still up in the air who I'll vote for federally but lets just say it won't be for the Conservatives. I'm done with anything that squirms and slithers and crawls on the right. And like a snake shedding it's old skin being born-again politically completely free of all the old burdens feels fucking great. :twisted:

:lol:

I'll freely admit there was a time when I was part of the 'them bums ought to get a job' club.

Then I grew up and learned some shit that showed how wrong that position was. It was eye-opening to find out almost everything I'd heard growing up from my Conservative voting parents was bullshit.

Ousted Alberta MLA Pat Rehn invited back into UCP fold

Lesser Slave Lake MLA Pat Rehn has been invited back into Alberta's United Conservative Party caucus five months after he was kicked out for being absent from his constituency.

Caucus chair Nathan Neudorf announced the decision in a press release Wednesday.

"Since his removal from caucus, Rehn has worked tirelessly to rebuild trust with local families, businesses, elected officials and Indigenous leaders," Neudorf said in the release.

"[Rehn] has been doing an incredible amount of work to rebuild trust and get things done in his constituency."

Neudorf said the UCP received letters from several municipalities and the Lesser Slave Lake Constituency Association, requesting Rehn be allowed to rejoin caucus.

When CBC News asked for the letters, UCP caucus spokesperson Tim Gerwing sent a list of individuals who supported the decision.

The list includes reeves, councillors and local businesspeople but no municipalities as a whole.

Slave Lake Mayor Tyler Warman said neither he nor his council was consulted about the decision. They did not send a letter of endorsement.

"We found out just the same time as everybody else did," Warman said. "And so, a little bit of shock for sure, a little bit of puzzlement."

Warman had called for Rehn's resignation in January, saying Rehn was absent for meetings with local leaders and UCP cabinet ministers about important regional issues.

Rehn has been sitting as an independent MLA since Premier Jason Kenney kicked him out of caucus in January for frequently being absent from his constituency.

Well, ole Jason has a shortage of Allies and if Absent Pat will support him, then he's a perfect member of the UCP.

Premier Jason Kenney announces equalization, daylight saving referendums

So, we get to vote on something Alberta cannot change. And we get to vote for Senators, who we have never heard about before and have no idea where they fit in the political sphere, of whom the PM does not have to appoint. What a great use of Government rations. :roll:

Learn the phrase "I return this ballot in protest." and repeat it at the polls.

No. Go out and vote. And select the options that Kenney and the UCP are against. Put another massive checkmark in his Loss column to send him and that ratfucker party of his a loud and clear message. :evil:
