Quote from: Barrister on November 22, 2022, 12:49:29 PMBut prior to becoming Premiere Danielle Smith had suggested that the $300 would be used for non-hospital medical care - that is things that ARE covered by medicare. So, namely, doctor's visits. You go to see a doctor at their office or at a walk-in clinic you pay, I dunno, $50 out of your HSA to cover the visit. The money then for the HSAs would be coming out of the existing AHS budget (Alberta Health Services).
Quote from: PRC on November 29, 2022, 03:23:25 PMDanielle Smith comes out yesterday and says she and her ministers are personally calling organizations that still require people to be vaccinated, specifically mentioning sporting events and a film set. She also implied provincial funding was at stake for those organizations if they kept their own mandates in effect.
Quote from: Neil on November 29, 2022, 07:17:10 PMI don't trust Danielle Smith. I see her as a political huckster always looking for the main chance, and whose tactics are primarily inspired by Movement Conservatism. Even when she agrees with me, I don't trust her. I think her sovereignty act is unlikely to make it past the courts. I think that her idea for a provincial police force is utter folly. I think that her vaccine politics are cringe-worthy. I think that her HSAs are an attempt to normalize reducing reliance upon single-payer health insurance. And I think that her attempts to pay in cash for electoral victory during a time where heavy government spending has already caused massive inflationary problems shows her complete lack of good sense. But the other party is the NDP. It's a hard knock life.
Quote from: Barrister on November 29, 2022, 08:48:32 PMI almost entirely agree with you, except for an Alberta police force. There's a lot to recommend about an Alberta Police force. The "only" negative is that it would be incredibly expensive to set up and run.

The other half is that even with the whole RCMP to draw upon, Alberta struggles to maintain appropriate staffing for rural policing. Drawing from a smaller applicant pool while setting up entirely new and expensive training and headquarters facilities isn't going to improve matters. I just can't see a problem with the RCMP that would be solved by having an Alberta Police Force. Although I suppose that's more your department than mine, so you might be able to provide a counterpoint.
