Well, it seems that Danielle Smith's full privatization of the electricity grid in Alberta has resulted in... *checks notes* the highest electricity prices in Canada, and now, in a current wave of extreme cold (-40, which is the same in both scales), the threat of rolling blackouts.

Apparently Canada's Texas really is determined to become more like Actual Texas.

Ottawa Police Using ‘Intimidation Tactics’ Against Striking Workers, Canada’s Biggest Federal Public Sector Union Says

funny how they can't do anything about a convoy of dipshits clogging up Ottawa's streets for several months and honking their horns at all hours of the night, but the minute a strike happens, they go in with billy clubs
