Episode 59: The Fiscal Reckoning and Alberta’s 70-year old Revenue Problems

After a very eventful summer in Alberta politics, Dave and Adam tackle big questions about Alberta’s fiscal challenges (and revenue problems) and Premier Jason Kenney’s promised ” fiscal reckoning,” the mini-cabinet shuffle, Erin O’Toole’s win in the Conservative Party of Canada leadership race, what a return to school during a global pandemic looks like, and more. We also answer some great questions submitted by listeners.

Thank you to everyone who submitted recommendations for the Alberta Politics Summer Reading List. With summer coming to an end, now is time to start thinking about what Alberta politics books you want to read while cozying up next to a warm fire this fall.

What should Albertans expect? Albertans have nothing to show for their wealth, because it was frittered away by the Alberta PCs, since the mid 1980s, and they were quite blind to see that oil prices could come tumbling down, with little to no notice. When a government only knows how to do the most grandest scandals, and does not know how to save money, there will be problems. People shouldn’t expect anything else. The UCP are following in the footsteps of the Alberta PCs, and are continually doing more of the grandest types of scandals, and the amount of them is already beyond $60 billion. It’s would be best if the UCP are not in power anymore, because the damage they are doing is growing.
