March Xth, MMXXII
Hon. Adriana LaGrange, MLA, Minister of Education, United Conservative, Red Deer-North
So your caucus colleague the Hon. Jason Thomas Lukaszuk Kenney, PC, MLA, Premier, United Conservative, Calgary-Lougheed is going to host a Saturday morning weekly call in show. Yet another reason I guess to avoid listening to the Corus Radio Network & its Alberta affiliated stations, 630 Ched AM & 770 Chqr AM. Its just another vane attempt by Mr. Kenney to establish himself as equal to or greater than the late Premier Ralph Klein, Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Elbow. Klein having hosted the same show or a similar show on a monthly basis during his premiership actually listened & interacted with callers.
Jason Thomas doesn't actually care about people, he & Her Majesty's United Conservative Government are only doing this radio show in order to stay in power so its beyond farcical that Regional Program Director for Corus Alberta John Vos invited the Premier to start up this little show. If by some miracle Jason Thomas survives the April IXth, MMXXII UCP leadership vote in your home city of Red Deer & wins another majority mandate in May MMXXIII, he'll get sworn in & quit the radio broadcasts because he won't need to pretend to care as he'd be safe in power until May MMXXVII.
Also betwixt Wayne Benson the hired hand guiding (screening the calls so Kenney only gets calls that are friendly to his viewpoint) & the amount of ads each hour of the show has, Kenney might only take 2-3 callers an hour (if that.) This is because like me with my medical talking disorder of Aspberger's Syndrome, Kenney tends to blather on & be rather "long-winded" so he seems like he's answering your questions when he's not.
Then there is the question of the Alberta Sheriffs Executive Security Detail (best police force in Alberta in my mind, always will be), & Alberta Legislature Security having to provide for extra security details every Saturday to get the Premier in & out of the 630 Ched & 770 Chqr broadcast studios safely each week. These building sites being a lot less secure than the Premier's 2 offices, his constituency office, & his Edmonton & Calgary residences. I just can't get over that loser woman making threats to the 2 Premiers & Dr. Theresa Tam, just outrageous. This radio show is yet another poorly thought out plan by your friends at Corus. Kenney is no Hon. late Premier/Senator Ernest C. Manning, Social Credit, Calgary, Edmonton, Strathcona-East "Back To The Bible Hour" radio pro, he's subpar at best (sound familiar Wade Izzard?!) It should be noted that Corus is only doing this to stop Brian Jean, LL. B., QC, from taking the leadership over from the Premier in order so that Leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Official Opposition Rachel Anne Notley, B. A., LL. B., New Democratic, Edmonton-Strathcona can once again be the the XVIIth-II (17th-2) Premier.
It should be noted that the proper thing to do would to run the show as both Premier Kenney & former Premier Notley & give them exactly half the broadcast time so that neither leader has a tactical advantage over the other & Albertans hear equally from both sides.
