I think at this point only a GENERAL STRIKE will make them listen. Not sure how to start one, but maybe someone smarter than me knows.
Politicians can't recommend this, but I sure can. If everyone just stopped paying their bills at the same time, what are they gonna do cut all of us off and just stop servicing the province? It's a #GeneralStrikeAB more powerful than a boat in a canal
As of yesterday utility companies can cut Albertans off again. This is very bad news for many families who have fallen behind due to UCP policies. We tried to work with the government to extend the ban - even drafted legislation - they refused to even discuss it. #ableg

Time for a #GeneralStrikeAB - we have SO MUCH labour power here, and there would be many more jobs! And sustainable ones to boot! In renewables, land stewardship, education, healthcare, community supports (b/c we can #DefundThePolice at the same time!) - we can save us!
Every IPCC report has been followed by the same series of headlines pronouncing short timelines and narrowing windows for action that are forgotten as soon as the next news cycle rolls around. canadiandimension.com/articl…

Alberta crown prosecutors consider striking. "We have been rebuffed by everyone else we approached in government with authority over our working conditions," they say in a letter to Kenney. "Your government's neglect has forced us to consider job action." cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/…
Hope they start the WAVE to shut down the province until an election is called. #GeneralStrikeAB

Alberta crown prosecutors will meet tonight to discuss something that's never happened before in its 50-year history: the possibility of a strike. Story coming soon. #CBC #yeg #yyc #ableg @AlbertaJSG
#GeneralStrikeAB Drop the games UCP and call an election or the people will shut down the province until you do.

"They're not even listening to us about the curriculum or saying no to coal!!" Yeah, no, we've all noticed, they're coming in with "what are you going to do about it" energy. And we just keep going to work to pay these unaffordable bills #GeneralStrikeAB

I recently retired from Ab Gov. The UCP bully, threaten and will not negotiate in good faith. I believe the only way to go is a #generalstrikeAb and to vote them out as soon as possible. #FiretheUCP #FireKenney another leader will NOT make a difference. 😠

#UCP sucking the life out of Albertans. Cutting PSE to the bone resulting in sky-rocketing tuition, job losses, hobbled academic careers. Punishing HCWs with crippling wage roll-backs while they work in dangerous conditions, short-staffed, exhausted. Attacking K-12 by 1/3

I really think Albertans need to understand how close we are coming to make strike action in multiple public sectors. All because @jkenney can't do his job, and only wants to cling to power at any cost.
they’re about to find out the hard way who we are and how cut throat we can be. They’re going to regret starting this battle. #FiretheUCP #firejasonkenney #abhealth #generalstrikeab #fucktheucp @RachelNotley @JanisIrwin @DShepYEG

Look at what has happened in countries that have done this already. Infection and deaths increased. I'm disgusted by this government and by those celebrating the decisions made by it. #REPnotRIP #FireKenney #FiretheUCP #FireMintz #GeneralStrikeAB #ableg #shame #WearAMask

#GeneralStrikeAB c’mon unions this would be yours to lead
If you’re interested in a general strike, you should probably check out what happened in Puerto Rico today, where almost the entire public sector went on strike for better pay and retirement, led by thousands of teachers, and supported by unions and tons of protesters. /1
