Unpublished Ottawa: equalization fuzzification

    7 provinces with 50% of the population. An equalization referendum — nice window dressing — like lollipops, puppies, kittens, rainbows and unicorns but doesn’t mean a damned thing politically and Kenney of all people knows that perfectly well. Nice deflection though but the UCP may not win next time anyway.

    A political savvy premier would be bridge-building, lobbying others and doing what it takes to get to 7 provinces with 50% of the population onside. Apparently, not this guy.

      Rachel Notley tried to build bridges and was met with a brick wall. Based on current polling she may well get another shot.

      Funny how nobody ever asks Quebec to try building bridges. The latest tantrum out of QC concerns the upcoming HoC seat redistribution. Quebec is slated to lose a seat given its slower population growth. Legault is arguing, nay DEMANDING, that Quebec must never lose seats and should continue to be overrepresented because it is special and “a nation” and other such drivel.

      You expect Kenny to build bridges with THAT kind of thinking?

      • Ronald O'Dowd says:

        Pedant,

        Quebec is totally incapable of building bridges even with God under current management. You see our premier is a sovereignist pretending to be an autonomist — so the eventual destruction of Canada is still very much on the agenda. So don’t expect Legault to ever play nice in the federation sandbox. He has other ideas and big PLANS.

    Jesus Christ. When Carville said this is a “great” economy on CNN, I said, what the hell is he smoking? Dems likely lose GOV., LT. GOV and AG in Virginia. Can’t all be only because of Biden and House Democrats.

    And NJ: what in heaven’s name is that about besides a tax revolt? Or serially defeating Democratic incumbent governors.

    Sure. Off year elections, OK. But it’s got to be much more than that.

    If people start catching Covid after surgery Doug Ford is toast. What a fuckup. Dies he really need to suck up to the Hilliers in his base? Theyve already left the party lol
