Corbella: Greg Clark shines a light on NDP’s biggest scandal

Friday, March 29th, 2019 | Greg In The News, News, Opinion, Policy

“Clark is one of those rare opposition politicians who actually knows every government file he talks about with incredible detail. Ask him about electricity and prepare to be energized by a passionate discussion about balancing pools, power purchase agreements and the like.

Indeed, Clark says if he had his way, he would hold a royal commission into the Alberta “NDP government’s single biggest scandal” — its meddling with Alberta’s electricity system that led to the en-masse resignation of all but one member from the electricity balancing pool and has cost Alberta taxpayers $2 billion while getting nothing in return.

Just because electricity is so easy to use doesn’t mean it’s easy to understand, but Clark clearly does and is adept at describing what happened.”

NDP Government doubles down on unrealistic path to balance

Thursday, February 28th, 2019 | Alberta Party, Greg In The News, Press Release

“I’ve said it before, but the government is basically using the power of their imagination to make their path to balance. The update on that plan they provided today, an overtly political pamphlet tacked on to the actual Q3 numbers, confirms how unrealistic it is.

The entirety of their plan consists of holding expenses flat, an unlikely move for this government, and having resource revenue increase until the deficit is gone.

They’re using the uncertainty of the energy market to cover for a number they pulled out of thin air, a number that just happened to balance their budget for them.”

Province reaches deal on Springbank off-stream reservoir

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019 | Calgary-Elbow, Greg In The News

‘140 years ago should we have put the city somewhere else? Maybe. But this is where we put the city of Calgary, and so the only viable option is to build the Springbank off-stream reservoir.’

Clark added that hopefully this deal would quiet some opposition and spur other landowners in Rocky View to allow the purchases.”

Calling for a review of The Election Commissioner’s budget

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019 | Alberta Party, Calgary-Elbow, Greg In The News, Press Release

The Alberta’s Elections Commissioner is conducting an unprecedented number of investigations. Today I asked for the committee that oversees his budget to ensure his office has the resources he needs to do his job.

“I have written to MLA Shepherd asking that the Standing Committee on Legislative Offices review the budget allocation for the Election Commissioner, both for this fiscal year as well as the next fiscal year.

The commissioner is currently dealing with a number of investigations into possible misconduct, and my concern is that the number and complexity of these investigations could be taxing the limited resources they have available.

It is incredibly important that Albertans are able to trust the integrity of the democratic process, and properly funding the office of the Election Commissioner is part of ensuring that trust.”
