Comment to the article below by Grant V Bablitz: Graphic artists could do quite well drawing cartoons of our Alberta Government and Chrystia Freeland. Jason Kenney is a ruthless mafia Donsky who came to Alberta with envelopes full of cash, he’s a crook. A mural of Kenney with a priest behind him pulling his halo tale would be my suggestion.

An Edmonton-based street artist has put together a political piece that’s turning heads online.
AJA Louden, who also painted a mural of Greta Thunberg last October to coincide with her visit to Edmonton, has put together a political satire piece targeting Jason Kenney and the UCP.
It shows a caricature of Kenney holding scissors with ribbons saying “healthcare, the arts, education” being cut, while arms labelled “war room, energy corps., insurance” grab at a sack of money from his other hand.
The mural popped up just days after the UCP tabled its second provincial budget Thursday.
That budget will see a loss of 1,436 public jobs mainly through attrition, as well as a deficit of $6.8 billion on revenues of $50 billion. Debt is expected to rise to almost $77 billion by spring 2021 and to nearly $88 billion by 2023.
Following the budget announcement, rallies took place around the province to support the public sector and protest programs facing cuts.
Louden’s piece was painted on the “free wall space” at 105 Avenue and 97 Street in Edmonton, an ongoing street art installation that was first developed in 2002 as part of The Works Art & Design Festival. It’s the same location where Louden painted his Thunberg mural last fall.
Louden said he was not giving interviews related to the piece, and that he hopes to let “the art speak for itself.”
His Instagram post of the mural has hundreds of likes and comments.
Global News reached out to the premier’s office for comment Sunday but was told he was not available. [Corrupt cowards.]

BNN Interviews Alberta Oil Patch Consultant Brent Nimeck on Lexin and AER’s Orphan Wells: “This problem is 30 years in the making. … I would call it a Ponzi Scheme…. This is an orchestrated fraud from multiple angles: Industry, CAPP and the Alberta Energy Regulator have enabled this to happen. … Through our independent analysis and we’ve confirmed this at multiple sources within the energy regulator, the liabilities are over $300 billion. That’s what’s on the hook for Alberta taxpayers right now – $300 billion.”
Diana Daunheimer: “It’s clear, the UCP doesn’t give two cents about public health, environmental protection, liability management, property rights, industrial compliance, sustainable water management or emissions mitigation. The UCP are petrol molls, simple as that.”
