Premier accused of 'arrogance' over possible health-care job cuts

  Premier accused of 'arrogance' over possible health-care job cuts Alberta NDP Opposition Leader Rachel Notley accused Premier Jason Kenney of arrogance Monday after public sector unions were put on notice last week that thousands of workers may lose their jobs over the next three years. At a joint Edmonton news conference with the United Nurses of Alberta (UNA) and the Health Sciences Association of Alberta (HSAA), Notley said the job losses could affect 8,000 paramedics, lab technicians, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and other health-care workers.

The efforts to convince Canadians that the Alberta energy sector is the best in class and deserves to be supported are being undermined right here at home. Rather than focus on the detractors outside Alberta’s borders, we need to focus on the detractors within our own publicly funded school system.

I’ve known since I was a teenager that some public school social studies teachers seem to lean toward Marxism. I came home one day from Grade 8 social studies class telling my parents that my teacher thought the Soviet Union was just terrific. My dad had a different view. He didn’t think much of the fact that Joseph Stalin had starved 10 million people, mostly Ukrainians, and he went to the school to let my teacher know. This story has a happy ending — it firmly cemented for me that authoritarian regimes are the most evil ideologies ever invented by humanity. If you want to give me the old yarn that communism just hasn’t been implemented right yet, I give you the China Papers released this week. Even the Chinese, for all their tolerance of wealth creation and billionaires, have no problem setting up detention camps to surveil, capture, detain and re-educate their Uighur population.

Getting The Balanced Classroom Act passed in your area is extremely important. Students should not be singled out because of their political views or be indoctrinated by teachers or administrators. Reporting incidents to the school or school board is extremely important.

So I shouldn’t have really been surprised when a parent sent me her Grade 10 son’s social studies unit test this week, chock-a-block full of Marxist themes and anti-oilsands rhetoric.

Some of the assertions in the test were things like, “Free trade is behind many of the ills of the modern world. It makes people poorer and deprives them of power by putting the economy in the hands of transnational corporations. It should be stopped.” And an exercise where a student is supposed to identify irony, showing an editorial cartoon of a T-shirt shop with anti-trade and anti-capitalist slogans on it. Get it? It’s ironic that the shopkeeper makes a profit selling “Capitalism Sucks” T-shirts. The takeaway for the 14-year-old student probably isn’t the nuance of adult hypocrisy. The takeaway is that capitalism sucks.

It must be stopped . And House Bill 1418 is a good stop gap measure. If it becomes law, it would prevent the teaching of all “religious doctrine” until students reach the last three years of high school. The bill could be in response to parents complaining about Islamic indoctrination of their children.

Question 15 is another gem. It begins with the statement: “The proposed (oil)sands development will tear a hole in Canada’s lungs — our vital boreal ecosystem … It is essential that an integrated land management plan be in place that recognizes and protects the integrity of this critical ecosystem.” Then students are asked to choose what the author of the quote probably thinks. Are oilsands the best thing that ever happened to northern Alberta or should they be more strictly regulated? Well, duh.

The student is never asked to ponder whether the statement is true. Is Canada’s boreal forest the “lungs” of the earth? Is continued development going to “tear a hole” in those lungs? With most future development of oilsands to take place with such innovations as steam-assisted gravity drainage, or SAGD, instead of mining, it seems unlikely.

So what is the point of this? This is not education. It’s indoctrination. And it’s got to stop.

The problem is how to stop it? I was informed when I spoke about this on the air that the test was probably taken from a “test pool” that was written from the formal curriculum. If that is true, it would mean it’s formal curriculum in Alberta to teach that capitalism sucks and the oilsands are destroying the lungs of the earth. Let that sink in. If it’s an assignment drafted by the individual teacher, then who is responsible for holding them to account? The principal? The principal is in the ATA bargaining unit, they aren’t really a manager so much as a first among equals, so I doubt they would do anything about it. Contact your trustee? They aren’t really to meddle in operational matters at individual schools. Contact the education minister? She was asked about it in question period on Wednesday, but no doubt she’ll be told she isn’t supposed to meddle in the affairs of individual classrooms either.

This is the perfect mire of a faceless bureaucracy. No one is to blame. No one takes responsibility. There is no way to correct it. And so it continues.

I was going to start this column by suggesting that the Calgary Board of Education save the 300 teacher jobs on the chopping block by reducing a similar number of administrative staff. After this week, I’ve changed my mind. Let’s start by getting rid of the ones who are administering tests like this.

Alberta loses beer battle in Appeal Court, but won't have to repay brewers .
EDMONTON — Alberta's top court has dismissed the province's appeal of a ruling that disallowed a program meant to promote local craft beers. But the Court of Appeal tossed out part of an earlier judgment that granted two out-of-province brewers more than $2 million in damages. In a unanimous decision, the court found that a 2015 policy by the previous NDP government to charge retailers a higher markup for beer brewed outside British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan was a barrier to interprovincial trade, which violates the Constitution.
