Landlocked? No, there’s opportunity

By Letter to the Editor on November 8, 2019.

Who says we are landlocked and can’t succeed as our own country? Finally, we have a way to diversify and southern Alberta can be great again. Shipbuilding! Milk River, whose waters flow into the Mississippi then the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic, can quickly become an industrial powerhouse. As can Fort Macleod or Lethbridge, whose waters open to the Arctic and beyond. What a great opportunity.

    Let us not forget a mildly strenuous route to the Pacific via Triple Divide Pass in Glacier NP. Should the Missouri dry up or the Arctic become permanently frozen over , this route would most certainly remain open at all times…

    I realize this is a joke but since the Americans control the flow of the Milk River it’s not really an option anyway.
