Oh no! Is Alberta’s Danielle Smith Flip Flopping?

ER Editor: We’d heard criticism that relatively new provincial premier of Alberta Danielle Smith was caving. Former premier of the province of Newfoundland, Brian Peckford, weighs in on this. She had previously appeared to be taking a real stand against the Covid measures, vaccines, etc. and therefore against the World Economic Forum, globalist pack. As Peckford notes, this was likely to achieve the leadership of her party, the United Conservative Party. She now appears to be caving on key issues to do with provincial sovereignty at a very critical moment.

In the Epoch Times article below from May 6, Smith talks excitedly about a $10-a-day childcare program instead of the sovereignty legislation as being part of her election platform. Say what??


Alberta has likely been attacked in the last few days with a wave of fires due to (we believe) arson or DEWs or some such. The province is in a state of emergency, and a provincial election will take place on Monday, May 29. See this from yesterday —

OH NO, Smith Is Flip Flopping ?

Can you believe it?

I mean she was so adamant about the Sovereignty Act, looking at replacing RCMP for provincial law enforcement, and the Province’s own Pension Plan, etc——

And now I read in the Epoch Times as reported by the Canadian Press:

‘United Conservative Leader Danielle Smith says she won’t be campaigning on some of her party’s more contentious ideas—sovereignty legislation, a provincial police force and an Alberta pension plan—ahead of the May 29 election.’

Here are her own words:

“They’re not in our campaign because I think we’ve got so many things that we have done that we’re excited about. We’re bringing in $10-a-day daycare,” Smith said.

“We have a partnership with the federal government to be able to bring that through, and we expanded it out to both non-profit and private spaces. We’ve also undertaken a significant improvement in the health-care system.”

She even speaks well of  the Federal Government —and in an area that is the EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF THE PROVINCE. Wasn’t she against the Feds poking their nose in areas of Provincial Jurisdiction just a few months ago???

We should have known the capitulation was coming.

I reminded readers at the time she signed the new health deal with Ottawa that the Province was being hypocritical. No Federal nose in resource matters (ER: likely the province’s oil and gas sector) but let the nose come right in with Federal dollars in health care.

And I reminded readers of the fact that the Covid inquiry that she announced did not get the sanction of the Legislature  ——one would have thought this automatic given her stand on provincial rights and individual rights under the constitution when campaigning for the leadership—you know, full democracy.

Money and power talks —-and Danielle Smith who we thought was above this type of politics has succumbed.

This is the real time for her to show her bona fides —-PRINCIPLES —-in an election —to persuade the people that a return to the division of powers in the constitution was necessary. Abiding by the Constitution. One wonders whether she consulted with Saskatchewan’s Premier on all this.

But it seems this strong Provincial Rights stand was only to appease the more hard core conservatives in the party for leaderships purposes—now with that achieved ????

Now, Alberta has lost the credibility in defending and advancing legitimate Provincial rights and jurisdiction under the Constitution.

By this move, now fully declared, the Federal Government of whatever political persuasion (because it really makes no difference) knows that the Alberta Conservative Provincial Leadership were really not serious about all that provincial rights bluster—it was just a mechanism to achieve the leadership of the Party——and provides the Judiciary in future in difficult federal provincial decisions of jurisdiction the flexibility to side with the Federal Government.

You don’t think the promise to take these critical important issues up after the election means anything now do you?  Or that it has any credibility?
