The 'Redmonton' party no more: Alberta NDP's base has shifted to Calgary

$1:
New Democrats might also be encouraged by the new size of their base in the city that was the key battleground in the last election. There are more NDP members in Calgary now than there were UCP members there in 2022 for its leadership vote — despite Danielle Smith's party having more members province-wide.



Smith has been very good for the NDP.

Alberta isn't ready for what comes next

$1:
There’s fiddling while Rome burns, and there’s whatever the Conservative Party of Canada is doing right now on carbon taxes. Despite an early wildfire season and a major drought in most of western Canada, the CPC has rolled out yet another attack on the carbon tax, suggesting it will force Canadians to “cancel their summer vacations.”

Never mind, for the moment, that gasoline prices are exactly where they were last May, even with the increase in the carbon tax (and rebate). And let’s set aside the ludicrous suggestion, one made by Poilievre himself, that suspending the carbon tax along with the federal gas tax would save the average household as much as $955, which could pay for upwards of 37,000 kilometres worth of driving over the next three months. And, of course, the far more probable cause for any vacation cancellations this summer will be wildfires and the impacts they have on places like the Okanagan.

Former UCP MLA Derek Fildebrandt facing criminal charges, accused of threatening teens

$1:
Fildebrandt, 38, who is now the publisher of the Western Standard news website, faces four charges of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm, according to court documents.


$1:
In August 2017, plagued by a series of controversies, he quit the UCP caucus.
Illegal hunting incident

Fildebrandt apologized and repaid more than $2,500 after it was revealed he was subletting his Edmonton apartment on Airbnb while claiming his taxpayer-funded housing allowance as an MLA.

He also resigned as the party's finance critic.

That was followed by the revelation that Fildebrandt was facing a hit-and-run charge for colliding with a van in a parking lot and driving away. In December 2018, Fildebrandt was fined $400 after he was convicted of hit an run under the provincial Traffic Safety Act

Two months after that, Fildebrandt pleaded guilty to shooting a deer on private land. On Feb. 2, 2018, he was ordered to pay a $3,000 fine in connection with the deer incident.

That same day, then-UCP leader Jason Kenney announced Fildebrandt would not be allowed to rejoin caucus after he'd stepped down six months earlier.

Alberta Joins the Battle to Deny the Right to Vote

$1:
Bill 20, which was passed in May, has garnered a lot of criticism for making it easier for the provincial government to remove locally elected officials and overturn municipal bylaws. A lesser-known provision would also eliminate the practice of vouching during local elections. Vouching allows a verified person living in their polling district to attest to another person’s identity so they can participate in the election.

The move might appear relatively uncontroversial. Indeed, most voters produce some form of physical identification at the polling station, like a driver’s licence.

Yet, not all citizens have access to up-to-date ID with proof of residency. Denying eligible Canadian citizens their right to vote is a dangerous precedent that fundamentally undermines a cornerstone of democracy: accessibility.

Documents show police chiefs used police resources to help elect the UCP. Now what?

Now we know who was looking for a Provincial police force.

Alberta shuts down its energy ‘war room’

$1:
Mr. Kenney and his government long argued there was a concerted effort, bankrolled by deep-pocketed U.S. foundations, to hamstring the oil and gas industry. When he launched the inquiry, Mr. Kenney promised it would expose a “premeditated, internationally planned and financed operation to put Alberta energy out of business.”

The report, published after a two-year process that was plagued by delays and complaints about secrecy and unfairness, identified $1.3-billion of foreign money directed at Canadian and U.S. environmental groups. However, much of that had little or nothing to do with anti-oil work.

The meeting took place in a Church, which was famous for it's Covid-19 opposition.

Irony.
