You'd almost think ideas like Bill 207, the legislation to restrict reproductive rights usefully described on social media yesterday as the "Abandoning Patients Act," and the scheme to replace the trustworthy Canada Pension Plan with an Alberta version more vulnerable to mismanagement and misappropriation, were prepared in advance on the assumption Andrew Scheer would be prime minister by now.

No wonder Alberta's federal and provincial Conservative politicians are so furious that Canadian voters seem to have cottoned on to what they were up to and let the Liberals hang onto a minority government on October 21 despite Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's very bad year.

Bill 207, as has already been argued here, has the look and feel of legislation drafted in the premier's office and handed to Peace River MLA Dan Williams, one of many anti-abortion hardliners in the UCP caucus, to present as if it were his own private member's bill.
