    Excellent presentation. What seems to be missing especially in Canada is we are not taking Conservative neoliberal like Ford, Kenney , Pallister, and Moe seriously. They want to eliminate government. Period. Kenney’s legislative agenda is anti government destroying what unions we have left, eliminating thepublic service, making citizens consumers of everything, like health care, roads , water and every public service all to benefit not us but supporters of the UCP. Alberta wants to deregulate everything which will not matter as they don’t enforce regs now. . We are not selfish consumers who need choice, we are social animals. Unfortunately the vocals clamouring for freedom, are louder and get more press. Will things change after COVID. highly unlikely. These neoliberal are dangerous and unrelenting .
