#Alberta’s UCP board urges Premier Smith to change rules about vaccines for kids. MRNA vaccines especially should not be mandatory.

Btw - There is no scientific evidence supporting their case that mRNA vaccines are dangerous.

Auli,

@AnnaAnthro I don’t get it one of the safest vaccines given out. Has had millions of test subjects and nothing bad has happened.

@Auli yup.

"If there was any doubt remaining that Alberta's nearly seven-month moratorium on renewable-energy projects was a political decision — made in the halls of power rather than in the offices of expertise — it was erased by internal documents released to the public last week."

My latest analysis for CBC, based on original reporting by @drewanderson for @thenarwhal

Frost_Farm,

The cranes are heading north. Their cries are one of the iconic sounds of the Spring and Fall.

The absolute fuckery of carbon capture both in what is basically wealth transfer from 🇨🇦s to an oil and gas company and… 9 million tonnes of CO2 supposedly sequestered since 2015? Over 100 million tonnes of carbon produced by 🇨🇦 oil and gas in 2022 alone? Get the fuck out of here with this tech and “subsidy” bullshit https://www.cbc.ca/news/climate/shell-greenpeace-quest-1.7196792

"Alberta’s largest power generator has cancelled one proposed wind farm and put three other developments on hold, citing provincial rule changes to renewable developments and uncertainty around broader electricity market reforms."

A senior Alberta official found the renewables pause 'very troubling.' He was pressured to support it anyway

Calgary city councillor Dan McLean on proposed legislation that would allow the provincial government to repeal city bylaws and remove councillors from office:

“They always say the municipalities are like the children of the province, and sometimes parents have to spank their kids."

Frost_Farm,

Looked out the window at bedtime and saw another neighbor out for a snack.

Frost_Farm,

Lots of these dark eyed juncos hanging around the pond recently. Really enjoying learning the names of my various neighbors.

Anyone recently move to Alberta? Or know anyone who has?

I'm looking to talk to recent newcomers (past year or two) for a CBC article about the job market here.

Please reply or DM!

Last year saw the birth of the one and only baby on record in Alberta named 'Dude'.

I trust he abides.

You can look it up (and other quirk baby-name facts) with this little web app I made: https://www.albertababynames.com/

A parched place: the Alberta drought crisis is bigger than one summer - The Narwhal https://apple.news/A1bNK9ZNJRIS5pVAIFDGncQ “But the crisis confronting isn’t limited to this summer and what it might bring. The province is dependent on a resource that can’t keep pace with its industry and population, particularly as the effects of the climate crisis arrive at alarming speed. (1/3)

"Documents released under Alberta Freedom of Information laws confirm the United Conservative government was talking with the coal industry for years about relaxing a policy that protected the Rocky Mountains from open-pit mines.

The documents also show the province was talking about opening those landscapes to more development generally for at least seven months before letting the public in on its plans."

I doubt it will but I sincerely hope this post somehow reaches Rudy Bruce, who was interviewed by CTV at the carbon-tax protest west of Calgary on Monday.

He (somewhat incredibly) admitted he hasn't done his taxes for the past seven years because he owes the government $4,000.

As a result, he hasn't received his carbon-tax rebates.

I hope he know those rebates can be claimed retroactively, and are worth $3,145, which would settle the majority of his tax debt.

A table showing the annual value of carbon-tax rebates for individual Albertans dating back to the first year the tax and rebates applied in the province: 2020/21: $444 2021/22: $490 2022/23: $539 2023/24: $772 2024/25: $900 Total: $3,145

"Justice Kent Teskey warned the province that courts take a dim view of delay being used to neuter public attempts to understand how important decisions are made.

'The requesting parties have been practically denied access to the information they are entitled to at law and this court will not abet this conduct through the availability of judicial review,' he wrote in a judgment released Friday."
