Just a note regarding the erroneous quote on premium pay and benefits. The figure is misleading. The nurses who are on the sunshine list are there not because of premium pay (the figures are easily obtainable on the UNA website through the public collective agreement) – the high compensations are a direct result of overtime hours worked.
I can’t guarantee there aren’t RN’s out there who are capitalizing on ‘extra hours’ to be worked, but I can guarantee that there are many who do it so that their “unit” isn’t working short handed, because the employer has refused to staff appropriately for over a decade (if not longer) by filling a robust casual pool to cover vacation, and short notice relief.
The nurse who made $240k did NOT do so with $2.00-$5.00/hour collectively bargained premiums. And, benefits do not increase once full-time equivalency has been attained. Please research this a little more. Your article is misleading, particularly based on your financial quotes.

LETTER: Quebec is worth the effort
“It’s the first sensible insight that I have seen in a very long time.”
Your article is heartfelt and very impressive.
It’s the first sensible insight that I have seen in a very long time.
If at first, we don’t get far with Quebec, then keep trying. Thanks so much.
LETTER: The rest of the country may think of Alberta as redneck — let them
Alberta is being looked at as redneck. Well I like it. It’s about time somebody stood up to the bull crap that’s being handed down.
When will the media start sending out the message vaccinated people can spread COVID-19 just as easy as non-vaccinated people. In fact, maybe easier due to the mindset of invincibility they feel once vaccinated.
Start spreading the news the experimental drug vaccine only helps your personal immune system. It does not cure, make you immune, or stop you from spreading COVID-19.
The rising list of possible side effects to this untested long-term drug is scary, yet the media seems to ignore this except whatever the Pharma and government passes out.
How come we don’t hear how many positives have been passed by vaccinated people?
Alberta is being looked at as redneck. Well, I like it. It’s about time somebody stood up to the bull crap that’s being handed down.
I think every unvaccinated person, when forced to stand in a line or segregated out, should stand in the line of the vaccinated. Slow the system down.
Should tell the readers medical history is private. If I have to sign a document for another doctor to see my records what authority does someone have to even ask me for my medical status to board a plane or get food etc.
LETTER: Alberta should be off Equalization hook
Why would foreign nations be eligible for gratis Canadian money?
Alberta should be off the hook for Equalization support to the new Nation of Quebec.
Why would foreign nations be eligible for gratis Canadian money? Unless, of course, Trudeau decides their girls need education.
Then the payments could be construed as being for that. The Quebec template is open for us too. Just hold a couple of referendums on separation and no matter the outcome, eventually, we’ll get our way.
