For over seventy years now, conservatives have been working hard to turn back the clock. And, lately, they have been achieving what they see as victories. The latest evidence comes from Alberta. Justin Giovannetti reports in the Globe and Mail that:
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has promised a “summer of repeal” as his United Conservatives prepare to enter the legislature for the first time as government with an agenda to quickly cut taxes and spark economic growth.
After four years of New Democrat government in Alberta, Mr. Kenney’s UCP plans to take aim at former premier Rachel Notley’s legacy by swiftly tabling a dozen bills that will roll back the province’s climate plan, cut corporate taxes and repeal toughened labour rules. The legislative session, which comes after a Speech from the Throne on Wednesday, could stretch into the dog days of summer after the Calgary Stampede.
In Ontario, Doug Ford has repealed Kathleen Wynne's cap and trade plan and gone to war against the federal carbon tax, while nixing the Liberals' Guaranteed Annual Income experiment in three cities.
In Alabama and Georgia, conservatives are hell bent on repealing Roe vs. Wade, forbidding all abortions. The procedures will now go underground and into the back allies -- as they did seventy years ago.
And Mr. Trump has repealed President Obama's Iran Nuclear Deal, setting the Middle East on a knife's edge. He's still trying to repeal Obama's health care program.
Throughout North America, conservatives are marching, proclaiming their belief in "That Old Time Religion." Certain that God is on their side, they march blindly into the past.
