Granted Stephen Harper doesn’t connect with people on a personal level, but to those who are convinced the soft-headed and soft-hearted NDP are the answer to giving us change, should consider the disenchantment that is beginning to fester in Alberta.
The NDP have completed their introductory period of walking on egg shells in PC country and are now beginning to show their true predictable orange.
What has the NDP done about the 40,000 plus Albertan’s who have lost their jobs so far this year in the oil patch alone? Why they just voted to give a 7.25 per cent raise to senior government officials who currently make up to $273,000 a year. To add insult to injury a group of NDP MLA’s also voted to send themselves on an all-expenses paid trip to Boston to attend an “ethics” conference on U.S. politics, nothing to do with Alberta. Now this is the stuff you might expect from any of our municipal, provincial or federal politicians but you would think some common sense would prevail particularly when the federal NDP want to lead.
On another point we should hearken back to the late 1980s when the west was totally ignored by Ottawa and Quebec. The two alternative’s we have to consider in October are both from Quebec.
