I am appalled at the budget put forth by Premier Kenney and the United Conservative Party. While I understand the need for the government to get its spending in order, I do not agree with the de-indexing of AISH from the cost of living.
I think the budget can be rightly called, “Making Alberta Great Again É On the Backs of the Poor.” Of the many cuts in the budget, I find this one the most offensive É an obscenity.
This budget is an example of the UCP’s adherence to the dominant patriarchal system that exists worldwide in all facets of life É political, social, religious. What the budget reflects is the same attitude towards the poor that has existed throughout history: On the backs of the poor a few acquire riches and power. The budget is an example of the inbred attitude of the colonial/settler mentality that is alive and well in the provincial governing party.
