Letter: Who do you trust?

In my mind, Premier Rachel Notley has far more credibility and authenticity than most politicians.

After a recent rally against the pending Alberta carbon tax, one of the many federal Conservative leadership hopefuls, Chris Alexander, claimed he was mortified by the chants of ‘lock her up,” which were aimed at Premier Rachel Notley.

I suspect there are many politicians in Canada who deserve to be locked up (after due process, of course) and I would not be surprised if the majority of them actively support rabid right-wing political agendas.

Although my preference would be a principled federal government based on progressive conservative ideals, the current crop of Conservative leadership candidates, except for two, leave me disenchanted.

In my mind, Premier Rachel Notley has far more credibility and authenticity than most politicians. To put it another way, I would never buy a used car from Chris Alexander or Premier Christy Clark, but I would buy one from Rachel Notley.
