Trudeau dipsy-doodles around the WE Charity scandal, the politicians are sent packing and now the PM hits the reset button with more than a few Canadians once again stricken with amnesia.

And Alberta is where it is. Chalk up another one in the loss column.

What’s that slice of wisdom?

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.

There is no different result.

Rempel says Alberta needed a clear message from Trudeau. Didn’t happen. It was a nothing burger.

“We’ve got a fight ahead here. In no universe should the people in my community feel like they’re second-class citizens.”

In the Trudeau universe, they do and they are.

Rempel says the global economy is not going to move to a clean energy economy overnight.

The MP uncorks quite the rat-a-tat-tat statement.

“The move towards that can’t be this ivory tower, Davos-based and inspired let them eat cake bourgeois everybody just loses their job in Alberta. That can’t be the response. That’s what we’re getting.”

There shouldn’t be a plan where folks she represents are “out of work, destitute, having mental health issues, relationship challenges, increased suicide rates.”

Rempel has some faith in our fellow citizens. As for what Trudeau serves up Wednesday …

“I think a lot of Canadians will say the emperor’s got no clothes, man.”

We can hope.

Shannon Stubbs is a tell-it-like-it-is Conservative MP from heartland Alberta. She also chews over Trudeau’s “fantasyland rhetoric” and spits it out.

Stubbs says Trudeau once again turns from the struggles and pain in Alberta and the fact “Albertans in growing numbers are talking about giving up on Canada because of him and his failures and his attacks.”

Stubbs feels “a continued ongoing simmering rage like the majority of people I represent” and adds the prime minister is still all about screwing over Alberta and screwing over the oilpatch.

The MP thinks of what another Trudeau win would mean for Canada and how Albertans would react.

“It haunts the back of my mind every day.”
