QUOTABLES:

By insulting Alberta nurses and refusing to postpone a government plan to lay off at least 750 nurses until after a new collective agreement is in place, Mr. Toews is generating considerable uncertainty in the health-care system.

The Lead:

New website will catalogue all of Jason Kenney’s ‘unAlbertan’ and ‘deeply disturbing’ cuts and policies

This new on-line resource will help Albertans keep up with the Premier’s ongoing marathon of ideological folly and vindictiveness

The Alberta Federation of Labour has collected and categorized hundreds of stories about Premier Jason Kenney’s cuts and policies and posted them on an interactive website that will continue to record and catalogue the damage that the UCP is doing to our province.

“It’s hard to keep track of all the pain that Jason Kenney has been inflicting on our province in just a year and a half,” says Alberta Federation of Labour president Gil McGowan.

“But we’re going to give it a try. We think it’s important that Albertans understand how much damage the UCP has caused in such a short time. It’s also important for people to keep up with these destructive policies, because there is clearly much more to come. Finally, it’s important that people remember all of these things when the next election rolls around. This website will be an important resource to help make sure Kenney and his band of ideological bullies are held accountable.”
