I am not against The Feds giving this money to Alberta. The Conservatives with their short sighted “let’s placate the oil industry, let’s not diversify policies forced this to occur along with the Saudi market cornering tactics. I know these Conservatives are going to bleat about how the NDP is running to the gov’t and that the “free” market should be allowed to sort this out while completely ignoring their role in this disaster. Once AB is back on its feet these Conservatives will say it will not be because of the bail-out or the strong fiscal policy of the NDP. Nope the cons will say the market corrected itself and now it will be business as usual for the oil barons. Free marketers always forget how the gov’t not the market bail them out.
