Not sure whether to laugh or cry

A choice quote via Kate from our Prime Minister, speaking in Regina:

"Let Alberta be a beacon for the best and brightest on the condition that the rest of Canada is as well".

On the condition that? I feel sick.

What the hell does it mean?

The paranoid way to interpret it is that he's saying it would be unfair for Alberta to be great unless every other province is as well, and as such, Alberta ought to transfer its (cough) good fortune to everyone else, so we can all inch forward together.

I'd compare it to a (bad) parent of 3 or 4 college-age kids, saying, "I want my oldest child to have the best job, the nicest wife, and the happiest family - on the condition that all my other kids get that too."

To me, that doesn't exactly sound like encouragement for the oldest child.
