On April 16, Albertans voted to oust the NDP government after one term, bringing the UCP to power, largely over concern for economic issues.It was a refrain that now-Premier Jason Kenney oft-repeated on the hustings: Jobs. Economy. Pipelines.Also, he was elected on a pledge to balance Alberta’s books.But for each incremental step to enact the things for which Albertans voted, you’d have thought the UCP had already demolished a hospital or fired 1,000 nurses, based on the reactions of the NDP and various labour groups.He appoints a blue-ribbon panel to look at spending, foes rail against the prospect of cuts.He announces plans to follow through on his pledge to cut corporate taxes, there are cries that the wealthy are getting a break on the backs of regular Albertans.We hate to break it to you, but regular Albertans, yes, even regular Albertans in so-called Orange Edmonton, voted in strong numbers for what Kenney was selling.Yes, there’s an expectation that the premier will hold true on promises to “maintain or increase” education funding to ensure growth in our schools is managed appropriately. Same goes for health care.But we also expect the premier to follow through on plans to balance the budget. Until the spending panel brings forward suggestions, maybe some people could dial down the hysteria.Meanwhile, the minimum wage changes, reverting to a $13 per hour wage for youth under the age of 18, throws a bone to small businesses who say that the minimum wage hikes under the NDP were too much, too soon.If it means business take a chance to hire more young people, then mission accomplished.Voters obviously felt there were issues under the NDP, especially on the economic file, so they voted for change.We get that those on the opposition benches aren’t fans of some of the policies, and it will make for some lively debate in question period.But they should be wary of any attempts to filibuster, or otherwise stymie or stall the government’s plans to implement campaign promises.Such moves would fly in the face of a majority of voters.
