Last Week In Alberta:

  • Just days after correctly pointing out that new restrictions won't do much and people need to use common sense and take personal responsibility, Premier Kenney introduced new restrictions. Indoor team sports are cancelled for two weeks, while restaurants and bars must stop liquor sales at 10 pm and close by 11 pm.

  • The President of the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees, who was paid $287,827 in union dues collected forcibly from Alberta workers last year, attacked so-called 'fat cats' who want to keep taxes affordable for regular Albertans.

  • Finally, as we've been warning about for a while, Finance Minister Travis Toews confirmed that the provincial government is now considering introducing a sales tax. Is that what you expected when they were elected?
