NDP: Prentice flip-flops on royalty reviews, calls his own views “extreme”

Posted on April 21, 2015 by Taber Times

Newstalk 770 host Rob Breakenridge pointed out via Twitter Prentice’s 360 degree reversal on royalty reviews.
In 2007, Prentice stood behind Stelmach’s royalty review, saying, “I think that the premier and his government have worked to strike the right balance in the interests of Albertans as the owner of the resource… Alberta will continue to prosper and I think do very well.” (Canwest News service, Oct. 30 2007)
Asked about a similar royalty review proposed by Rachel Notley’s NDP, he reversed his stance saying that Stelmach’s review “resulted in a flight of jobs and investment from this province.” (Edmonton Journal, April 20, 2015)
Does the 2015 Prentice think the 2007 Prentice is “extreme?”
