Capitalists insist that making sure companies have profits is what drive the economy. Here’s why that’s a myth.
Recent measures announced by the provincial government are not designed to help workers. Very few workers will benefit from them.
If there’s one thing that’s become clear during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s that neoliberal economic policies have failed our societies.
Workers are too often tasked with bearing the burden of generating profit for their employer.
In March 2020, the Supervised Consumption Sites Review Committee released the results of their review. This is my response to that review.
I discovered that among all 18 Alberta cities, Lethbridge has the highest property taxes.
Not only is Lethbridge tied for the lowest paid workers in the province, but workers here are paid $1,000 per month less than the average of all Alberta cities.

There were fewer front-line staff serving a larger provincial population. And they made less last year than they did the year before.
People opposed to the supervised consumption site choose to perpetuate myths and falsehoods because their feelings are more important to them than the facts are.
