Alberta wants a total US system installed before next election!

Stelmach's ire is in a different direction than ours.  He wants to get health care totally onto the US system before an election is called.

Indisputable facts:
Capital health Authority made a list of what is to be take off Alberta Health Care coverage. This was patterned after the Oregon non insured list but made even leaner and meaner.

Blue Cross has increased their presence in Alberta by more than doubling their staff.   We are now a virgin market for Health care insurance.

The Minister of Health recently told us that Stephen Duckett had other uses.

Stephen Duckett was accredited with installing US Health Care  Insurance Companies into Australia.  He left there before they could lynch him.

Australia tells us not to go down this road as once these same Health Care Insurance Companies are installed, you can't get rid of them because of the huge buy  backs involved.

The boomer crisis is BS!  

Most of the health care costs are directed to the young 18 to 40 years who go into hospital for the expensive operations and longer stays.  Most of these are  due to life style.

The Democrat health care reforms were killed in the US by the Health Insurance Industry who, have more money than the US Government!   They are hard at work in Canada all selling health insurance in Canada.

Alberta enacted legislation to allow these people to sell health insurance and they promptly opened up Canadian Health Insurance companies to look after the lucrative business.

Alberta Conservatives: A Government run on lies and deception.

For starters, the Alberta Sustainability Fund was a 100% PR program.   At best it is an index of borrowed money.  In reality it was a plan to draw on AIM collateral to borrow or siphon money out of.   

You can understand why Alberta fought so hard against a Federal Securities Regulator!

Much of Alberta Pensions under direct or indirect control of the Conservatives  are riding in  this!

The Conservatives used this jargon to convince Albertans they had a plan! We all know better now.

We are paying hundreds of Millions on Centrifuge operations in Mildred Lake and our conventional oil royalty is down to 5% Canadian$. (Compare that to 30% US of our neighbors)

They want us to fork out a billion for a pipeline to the coast to supply India with oil. You will not Stelmach did not ask, he said he was going to do it so, dig in.

And finally, the outright lie of us making money on the CCS 2.4 billion dollar lie.
It has been flushed out that the CCS is being paid by  taxpayer who gets stuck with 100% of that bill. However they will proceed and you will pay!

Our royalty take is the lowest in the world's history!  If there is a chance there will be money made it will be used to further reduce royalty.  It is a no win system under the Conservatives.   

The Wild Rose Party offers no different except for their push to stop balance of payments; making Quebec the villain in their campaign. 

In truth, the Conservatives are the only thing that is putting this province at risk!

If you are still stuck on Conservative, you are doomed!

Alberta Health Care:- A lot to consider.

Privatized COD type Health Care has long been the holy grail of the Conservative Party.   They are dug in to put Alberta on a US system, like it or not.  And, the Alberta Conservatives are no exception; they consider themselves to own the province outright.  They are the ordained.

Dentistry  is totally funded out of your personal incomes 100%!   This makes up most of the 30% Albertans pay out of pocket for health care.  This is the type of system the Alberta Conservatives are looking for in general medicine.

Obama's efforts to put in a public health care system was defeated by the Health Care Insurance lobby which, has more money than does the US Government.  Americans were subjected to scare tactics involving Socialist Canada amount cameos by people who generally, did not have a clue what they were saying.


Ask yourselves;  If I loose my job will my family still have dental coverage?  The asnwer will be overwhelmingly "NO"!

This brings me to the latest figures by the World Health Organization; totally honest and respectable.

Some figures from their reports:
There are presently 50 million Americans without health care coverage.  Some of these are because they have lost their jobs while most, didn't get coverage with employment in the first place.

Interesting Facts:
In the year 2002 and 2003, Canada had 77 cases of preventable deaths recorded in Medicine where as the US had 110 such cases.

 How long can you expect to live?  In Canada, to 72 years on average and in the US only to 70 years.  Speaks volumes for their health care.

On health care ranking in the world:  Canada is ranked at #30 while the US is Ranked at # 37.  Why would you want to go there?

Other interesting things are in the report.  We pay far less per capata on our public health care system than the US does on its COD system.

Here is a repost of some stats from Alberta's system:

The Capital Health Authority made a list of services to be dropped from Alberta Health care.  This list was patterned after the Oregon Health Care coverage and then, made leaner and meaner.
This Government is still following that list! Putting lipstick on this pig isn’t going to make it better!

Here are some Health care stats to consider:

The average Albertan like myself has paid health care premiums for over 45 years and most of us have never used it, We still pay 30% out of pocket for services not covered by health care, while the younger generation that are statistically bigger users of hospitals are paying nothing toward their possible future health care.

I cheerfully pay premiums knowing that it is the younger generation that are big users of expensive treatments.

Every Albertan admitted to an institution is accurately documented.

-Alberta is chronologically the youngest province in Canada.

-Of all Albertans admitted to hospital, 76.4% were under the age of 65.

-Babies under a year were the most common.

-The average age of hospitalized patients was 39.5 years with half of those being under the age of 36 years. These are not baby boomers.

-Only 10.7% are 65 years or older.

-Some 16.4% of the elderly admitted to hospital died as compared to 3.3% of other patients.

-Over half of the patients admitted to Intensive Care were younger patients who had more done to them and stayed in ICU longer, the most expensive hospital service.

If you people choose to elect a Conservative Government again, you deserve what you are going to get!

Alberta commercialized water; hold outs for more bucks!

Since the moratorium was put in place, the town has been working "urgently and diligently" to try to find an appropriate water licence to purchase for transfer, Berzins noted. However, the town's search has been stymied because current water licence holders are uncertain about the future value and security of their licences, he said.

Water for Sale: Southern Alberta.

Recent news release has the Western Irrigation District selling 1.23 million cubic meters of water to Wheatland County.   Both Wheatland County and WID will not comment on pricing so, people in Alberta should be very concerned.

This is still another step forward in water as a commodity; for profit sales!

Alberta Bill 24 and Carbon Capture:- The tip of the problem!

Alberta recently introduced Bill 24 saying Alberta Taxpayer would accept Liability for Carbon Capture.

This is the tip of the problem!

Alberta has earmarked 2 billion dollars to this program implying we, the taxpayer would received  at some point 20 billion dollars in royalty from the old oil harvested with the Carbon Dioxide put down hole.

Even more recently the Government has put in a very low royalty rate for this segment of the industry and it is locked in for 5 years!   Under this same program oil companies do not have to produce oil to receive payment from the Alberta Government!  This will be the subject of still another post.

We are now getting 5% Canadian dollars on this "old" oil. There is no chance of us making any money on this at all!  Quite the contrary; what the article is telling us is that the Alberta Taxpayer is on hooks for every cent of the Carbon Capture scheme and, we receive nothing back!

Further: This Government on one part with much fan fair says they are going to accept liability on CCS.

When reading bill 24, I see where they have written in a provision that the Government cannot be sued for anything on CCS.

They have effectively given industry a free hand on what they do and, left us holding the bag for what goes wrong!
