When you add up all the restrictions, legislation and blockades to business; it paints a very clear picture.

They have banned smoking nearly everywhere; pubs and restaurants can no longer make this decision for themselves.

They have imposed restrictions on “happy hours” at bars. Taking away business owners freedom of choice.

They have imposed drink prices. Again taking away business owners freedom of choice.

They have increased taxes on smoking.

They have increased taxes on liquor.

They have restricted the sale of tobacco products to a few select stores. Cutting a huge source of revenue for some businesses.

They have put a cap on both the number of VLT’s and locations where they can exist.

…. And the list goes on and on.

To me, the most unfortunate part of this debate is the total lack of attention to the 'thought crime' provisions of the AHRA. Blackett was originally going to remove them with this bill, and was denied by Stelmach. Instead, we get a three ring circus from lefties wanting to emulate their American cousins fighting against creationists.

Don't drink, don't smoke. Watch the goody two shoes.

This gov't's disdain to socially engineer us flies in the face of libertarianism, and I'm sick of it.

Don't blame me, I didn't vote for them.

If I'm still living in Alberta when the next election comes around I'll be voting for the Wildrose Alliance. Fortunately it looks like Danielle Smith is going to make a run for it and she'll be able to appeal to damn near every demographic in Alberta.
