So this is our conversation about "centrists" which I cut out of Ep 66 because it would have made the ep way to long and I thought that the conversation was so good that it could almost stand by itself as it's own episode.  Hope this 30ish minutes creates more discussion & debate!

UCP leadership review

CPC accidentally tweets about how the LPC cares about Canadian's jobs more then their own (lol)

Does the UCP have time to rebuild their reputation before the next AB election?

wishing you could take back sound bits and social media.  

This is our conversation that carried on after we got off the zoom call with Rick Peterson.

 

Mr Peterson thinks our conversation about taxes in Canada was a snooze fest but we think the four of us made it interesting and brought up some really good points.  Sorry Mr Peterson but we disagree! 

Other topics covered:

  • Francophone element – Campus Saint-Jean in the riding
  • My thoughts on leveraging what the riding has to attract jobs and capital here
  • The energy transition, and why this can be a tremendous advantage for Alberta and all of Canada
  • Why your generation could see the greatest wealth creation and economic growth in a generation in the next 10 years.

What a fantastic conversation. Very informative and we had to smile a few times as Rick held Justin's toes to the fire on some of his questions!

Our conversation continues with episode 64.5
