Ottawa's trust in China has left us more vulnerable to COVID-19

Here's a revealing article about China in today's Calgary Sun (its well worth the read):

Don't get me started on our present federal government or I'll be forcibly evicted from the forum for the use of such foul, vulgar language!

The Feds left us hanging, they shelled-out all kinds of relief to Ontario and Quebec, aside from $1.7billion to shut in orphan wells in Sask, BC and AB - although we send $2+ billion/yr to Ottawa. I think Kenney needs to draw up a new plan for how we fit into Confederation - this isn't working for the West. The Liberals in Canada are determined to shutdown our oil industry and we really share little in common with the east. I'm not even sure about Kenney, he's a committed Federalist - I hope Brian Jean makes a comeback. I voted Wildrose the two elections prior to the UCP and not sure I want to vote for the UCP again.

I only trust Kenney to sell out Alberta to the highest bidder. He just wants to privatise everything so he can line his and his backers pockets. He better keep his hands off my federal pension, too! I paid into that for over 40 years and I don't want his greasy, cheesy hands touching it.

Read the article below in today's Calgary Sun, it summarizes pretty much who Kenney is (and also worth reading some of the comments at the end of the article). Kenney promised us recall legislation.

Can't argue with that, especially about the equalization crap. If it gets bad here, do you think Quebec will chip in any coin to help us?

Being landlocked, I don't think separation is a good idea, unless Saskatchewan and Manitoba come with us. I don't think BC would join us because those hippies don't like our oil.
