So, it seems that our radio-talk-show-hostess Premier has publicly admitted that her proposal to quit the Canada Pension Plan was intended to start a national conversation on her province’s grievances!
She also claims that the “federal government continues to …disadvantage us in so many ways and are now actively trying to destroy our (energy) industry.”
Well, what else could one expect from a radio talk show hostess? Isn’t that what such a talk show is all about? If there were no controversy, there would be no talk show!
I also wonder who or what Lifeworks is, which has given her the “facts” and figures that she espouses.
There does not appear to be a physical address, nor a name for its leader, nor a phone number one might use to verify that such an organization even exists! (And by the way, other economists, especially those with the CPP give different figures.)
She has commissioned Preston Manning to give her the information she wants, and no doubt Jim Dinning will also give her the information she wants. After all they were given substantial monetary benefits to do her bidding. (H-m-m-m. Does this sound like a bribe?)
To top up all of this, she says that we will have a referendum on the APP proposal; but it will not be binding! Why have a referendum?
Then there is the move to make the politicians responsible for such things as health matters. Do they really know anything about medicine?
I would expect that a doctor would be in a better position to make a decision about my health than an elected official! Oh, wait a minute, I don’t have a doctor! Maybe my only recourse is to go to the Legislative Assembly!
My final words are to the Alberta citizens: Be careful of whom you vote for when the time comes.
I, for one, have been a card-holding Conservative in the past, but I’m seriously considering whether I am comfortable with a talk show hostess to lead our government. Or is Dave Parker, leader of Take Back Alberta somehow involved?
