A much needed book. It is short, but to the point and it succinctly illustrates what a disaster the province of Alberta has on its hands. The profiles on party officials contained in this book only serve to illustrate just why the province of Alberta now has the worst provincial government in the history of Canadian provincial politics.

A government who has completely bungled their first year in office deserves this kind of critical review.

To name just a few of their bungles:

1) Scare provincial investors away from their energy industry - the single biggest employer - by conducting a drawn out royalty, which lead to absolutely no changes
2) Dramatic increases to both business taxes and mandated labour rates in the worst recession in decades
3) The largest annual deficit in Alberta's history, which they were too embarrassed to speak the deficit amount aloud in legislature
4) A mandated cap on the growth of Alberta's largest employer and source of outside investment
5) Strong arming family farms into being unionized so the party can reward its union cronies
5) Banning of the press from government/public announcements
6) Participating in other provinces and federal elections for their party's benefit, while delaying critical Alberta government requirements - i.e. annual budget
7) Being investigated for fund raising irregularities
8) By-election stunts to throw off the other parties - snap elections, weekend elections in summer

And this only scratches the surface. The horrible truth is that this is not fiction, but cold, bitter reality and the once mighty economic engine of Canada - Alberta - has a destructive force at the controls until 2019.

Short, precise & to the point, this book says it all. Sheila Gunn Reid does an excellent job as an author & political commentator in a book that's only as long as it needs to be, to explain what Notley & her corrupt NDP idiots have done to destroy Alberta, formerly the #1 province in Canada by far, now just a joke, as is Canada under Trudeau, from the #1 best country in the world to a country of idiots & fools overnight. That would be the night before the last election Oct18/14, when Canada died & the whole world laughed.

I find it hard to believe how easy it is to fool so many people into handing over the leadership power to a political party made up by so many anti business politicians who have expressed their hatred for the oil and gas business..

Author Shelia Gunn Reid wants us to understand that, starting with the premier herself, the new NDP Alberta government is filled with socialist, communist, and environmental radicals. For example, the premier herself wears a Che Guevara watch. While Che Guevara is a common fashion accessory on college campuses in real life he helped Fidel Castro bring communism to Cuba. As Reid notes, her wristwatch wouldn't be all that alarming on a college student's wrist because:

"...those are kids. They're juvenile by definition. But Notley's old enough to be a grandmother, and she still hasn't grown out of her childish campus-style radicalism?"

Reid continues sharing short biographies of key players, one of which is Brian Topp, the premier's chief of staff. Before taking up his new position he has previously come out against the Keystone XL pipeline, and at one point stated that if it were up to him he would force "fossil-fueled cars out of our cities." Then there is Graham Mitchell, the new chief of staff for Alberta's energy minister, who has trained activists to push for fracking bans. And NDP MLA Rod Loyola, who is an admirer of the late Hugo Chavez, and is on record saying that oil royalties should rise from 9% to as high as 60%.

That's a taste of what Reid has to share. One point she makes repeatedly is that Albertans never really wanted the NDP. As an Abacus Data poll showed right after the election, 93% of Albertans thought the results were about throwing the PCs out of office, and only 7% thought it had anything to do with picking the NDP to govern. So the NDPs haven't been given a mandate to make their tax hikes, or to implement their carbon tax, or to force schools to allow transgender boys into girls washrooms. That wasn't what the electorate were voting for.

Sheila Reid lends straight up insight to the realities of those who were elected to the Alberta legislature and brings to light why the NDP is such a dangerous government. Everything in this book can be fact checked. It truly shows the lack of any common sense, actually more the ignorance of the NDP leadership and it's members. Many of them are nothing more than anti-establishment activists. Anyone who wants to know the realities and the destruction being caused by this government needs to read and truly digest this information. Most importantly those who are young and voted for the NDP for whatever reasons they did, need to understand how much they themselves are also being hurt. The NDP has a history of destroying no matter where they go. This book makes it clear why and how, and every person old enough to vote needs to make this mandatory reading.
