Our Lethbridge Herald recorded the presence of MP Thomas at the ceremonies for the new president of Lethbridge university. Apparently, she had nothing to say about southern Albertan’s concerns on coal mines in our water, or protecting our CPPfrom the local nominal Conservatives.
The Conservative mindset on spending of our tax dollars focuses only on “Mr. Trudeau’s excessive spending” as if she can ignore where the money went. MP Thomas and Conservatives ignore the money that helped us through COVID, with food, housing, and employment assistance. We hear little about day care, dental plan, even the billion-dollar aid for abandoned oil wells. To say nothing about the billions in annual subsidies to their foreign shareholder friends in corporate oil and gas.
Conservative MLA Mr. Dreeshan and MP father, helped Harper hand over the farmer’s Wheat Board to American corporate grain handlers.
These are the new Conservatives, different from the old Conservatives of Lougheed days. Mr. Lougheed was known for working for the betterment of Alberta people, not the agenda for a New World Order of global free trade.
Albertans named a park after Mr. Lougheed because he very particularly set about protecting our eastern slopes from industrial development, and was a careful listener to the wants and needs of Albertans.
Where are the old Conservatives of Alberta? The people of the party that worked to build a solid dependable lifestyle for students of excellent schools and self-sufficient local business.
What happened to country people who worked at community and neighbourhood, rather than jobs for international shareholders committed to global business dominance, “anything for a buck.”
