On Politics Via Alberta

Alberta, Canada, has a new premier. His name is Jason Kenney.

He said again today: "Job-killing carbon taxes."

For some reason that utterance reminded me of a favourite line of Ontario's own philosopher king, Doug Ford.

I like these intellectual heavyweights. They make politics and economics simple. Hobbes and Galbraith did not understand. ("Ya got it all wrong, boy. Ya got it all wrong!")

They used to call the Ford brothers Tweedledee [Rob] and Tweedledum [Doug]. That was a spelling error -it should be Tweedledumb. He is creating chaos and damaging this country just as Harris and Harper did. They are a mean-spirited and destructive crew and like Trump they are looking out for their friends and not the rest of us.
