October 6, 2023 – The World Petroleum Congress – some thoughts; embarrassing Ukrainian President Zelenskyy during his visit to Canada; the Affordable Housing and Groceries Act (Bill C-56) which will do absolutely nothing to make housing and groceries more affordable; mandating electric vehicles but obstructing the mining of necessary minerals to build them; and the Alberta Electric System Operator warns of brown-outs if we rush to a net-zero electricity grid by 2035.
September 15, 2023 – Parliament resumes on September 18 with a host of worrisome issues. I’ve included some perspectives on our troubled economy including low productivity and a poor investment climate; and two areas where the government is way off track: installing public EV chargers; and their estimate of how long it will take to recover their subsidies to EV battery plants (spoiler alert: the government says 5 years but the Parliamentary Budget Officer says 20 years).
August 24, 2023 – A digest of issues raised with me over the summer, including inflation/cost of living, the ill-conceived “plan” to get to net-zero electricity by 2035 (Ottawa’s goal) or 2050 (Alberta’s goal), an assault on natural health products, the bungled legislation that has led to Meta (Facebook/Instagram) removing news links from their sites, and housing policy, which is probably the #1 issue I’m hearing from constituents.
