New Poll On Equalization

This week we teamed up with the Western Standard to conduct a poll on the provincial equalization referendum taking place next Monday, in conjunction with Alberta's municipal elections.

Respondents were asked:

“On the referendum question of eliminating equalization payments, how would you vote today? The exact question is: Should Section 36(2) of the Constitution Act, 1982 — Parliament and the Government of Canada’s commitment to the principle of making equalization payments — be removed from the Constitution?”

Government Waste In A Pandemic

Yesterday, we found out that only 158 people have used the provincial government's ABTraceTogether app to upload a positive test result and to notify contacts.

Given how few people are actively using the app, that means it's highly likely that the ABTraceTogether app hasn't helped avoid even one single COVID infection, at a cost of more than $4 million of taxpayer money.

Who could have predicted this?

Well, actually, we did!
