Electricity narrative skewed by Schow’s wishful thinking

Posted on November 30, 2023 by Ryan Dahlman

I spent 32 years with the Royal Bank, working in 16 different branches throughout the province and was the manager of seven of them. My father was a power plant engineer for 38 years and Lougheed’s energy minister Bill Dickie was a brother-in-law of one of my uncles. I have never forgotten how furious all of them were at Ralph Klein for forcing his deregulation down our throats and everything my father said would happen has happened, yet now we have these phony conservatives, Reformers filling Albertan’s minds with the lie that it’s all Ottawa’s fault when we know they had nothing to do with it. I wonder why MLA Cardston-Siksika, Joseph Schow, finds it smart to continue to spread this lie when so many Albertans know it isn’t true? Maybe he had better learn the facts that each province is responsible for its own power system and Ottawa has nothing to do with it. Don’t forget it was this UCP government which took the caps off the industry that were put there by Notley to protect us from rising costs.
