    Yes, that's true..
    Even when it comes to climate change, we aren't deniers , but we are accused of being of we don't agree with the lefties...McKenna is bad for that, but then she didn't even buy her own car!
    In some ways I have a bit more respect for the deniers, as wrong as they are at least there is a logic to their argument - we don't believe there is a problem so why do anything, as opposed to those who believe there is a problem, but still don't want to do anything.
    I dont like people shoving another tax down my throat, that does nothing..
    ... and I don't like people who make excuses to do as little as possible or nothing while the climate and environment gets destroyed!

      Or that deniers don't like when science and facts get in the way...

      ...and when the alt-right get upset when laws, human rights, morals and ethics get in their way.

          Yeah, reminds Top_Dawg of Rex Murphy's classic description of ol' windbag during the Ontario election.

          Applies to most so called progressives these days.

          https://nationalpost.com/opinion/rex...rable-canadian

          Wynne has lately shown an unseemly eagerness to mark any disagreement with her “progressive” worldview as the product of corrupt thinking or moral defect. She seems unwilling or unable to believe that others can have ideas different from those she espouses, unless they, her critics, are morally inferior to her and their ideas are the products of ugly or ignorant minds.

            I'd like to see a focus on environmental things we actually see and measure the results of. For example, instead of shipping our recycle products off to other countries and pretending we have recycle (when much of it probably ends up in a landfill in China or similar), instead, try to find a way to re-use / reduce waste that we consumers produce. To me, that will do more for the environment than any carbon tax will (even if doing the recycling at home does nominally increase our carbon emissions in Canada).

              Top_Dawg has seen dozens and dozens of cornholskis like you.

              Let Top_Dawg guess.

              You use a single serving coffee maker.

              Because you're so shpeshal that heaven forbid your coffee should mix in a pot with anyone else's.

              Yeah, reducing waste is critical.

              As long as it inconveniences everybody else - not you.

                Rex would an expert on being a windbag. I wish some people working in the media would cut the excessive personal commentary, ascribing motives to fit their views and focus more on facts. He used to be entertaining, but now he is just tiresome. Maybe she felt the ugly or ignorant mind wasn't her critics, but the particular person running against her. Did Rex bother to ask her to clarify?

                    This is the liberal mantra.

                    "I dislike ______ , so I am going to force everybody else to change."

                      As opposed to the conservative mantra of not giving a flying fucj about anyone else besides themselves? The good old “fuvk you i got mine” is just great. Intolerant and scared of anything that might be different

                          ^UCP should quietly prop them up as a Kamikaze party (they gave them Mandel after all). While they didn't need to split the left vote, it doesn't hurt to have them there to eat into NDP support in case the right (over half of Albertans) split again one day, maybe in forty years time, or something like that...

                            The only party that should ever be considered the Kamikaze party is the UCP.

                                I think the article sums it up well, the Alberta Party was the victim of non vote splitting this time. The UCP united the right, the NDP united the left and in the end there was not that much left in between. I think the Alberta Party actually run a decent campaign and under different circumstances could have done much better.

                                Now Alberta has a two party system, but perhaps at some point in the future voters will tire of polarization and there may be an opening for a third party like the Alberta Party. I think it is good for voters to have more choice, so hopefully they hang in there.
