Rachel Notley and her wrecking crew say they’re making life better for Albertans but the Calgary Sun reported yesterday that there are more Albertans receiving welfare cheques today than in 2015 . In fact the number of those collecting welfare is now a whopping 54,374 recipents, 20,000 more than just two years ago when Notley’s wrecking crew assumed office.
Welfare claimants have gone skyward to 54,374 at the start of this year, around 20,000 higher than two years ago.
The line is going straight up and there’s no sign of a plateau.
We’re talking welfare, the last stop, where you go when you no longer have a job and you can’t find another job and the EI runs out and you’ve got no money coming in and you can depend only on yourself.
Is it any wonder with a lot of energy companies leaving Alberta going else where and also a lot of other businesses closing their doors? The carbon tax, other tax hikes, minimum wage hikes and regulations that they’ve imposed all contribute to this dilemma.
Making life better for us they say? But then again math is hard for NDPers. They’re actually making it more difficult and expensive for businesses and individuals to survive and thrive. It seems like they’re living in some alternate universe and not in the real world. They don’t really understand what real Albertans are going through right now.
We used to have the Alberta advantage, well that’s gone now. Will they change course and bring at least some of that advantage back? Nope,they have no sense of reality. They’re stuck in their la la land with their pixey dust and unicorn reality.
We can only hope they get resoundly defeated in two years and that new government can fix all the damage and bring back the Alberta advantage. It can’t come soon enough for me!
