Alberta votes Tory, no matter what

I find it amusing when I read letters in the Advocate of how “angry” people are at the provincial Conservatives.

I find it amusing when I read letters in the Advocate of how “angry” people are at the provincial Conservatives. Angry at all the mismanagement of the province in the last year, especially and how they “might or might not vote Conservative” in the next provincial election.

Come on people, you know next time an election is called, provincial or federal, you will vote PC.

Remember after the last provincial election Stelmach gave himself a big 30 per cent raise and the other MLAs a 25 per cent raise? Remember all the letters and the outrage?

It was all forgotten in a week.

I remember how Klein used to slash the benefits of seniors then he would go to a nursing home and the seniors would all line up to shake his hand, like he was some great friend of theirs.

Remember when the government’s EUB was spying on the people who were fighting the high voltage power lines in the west country?

Well, though the EUB people were caught, and still at the next election the people voted in the government that was spying and deceiving them.

And the person who was fighting the same government who was spying and deceiving them ran in the election for another party and he never got elected.

So. . . they would rather vote for the spies than the honest person who was fighting for their rights. The government said that was the first time the EUB had ever spied on people — or was it the first time they were caught?

Before Klein, it was said that Alberta had some of the least expensive electric power in North America, now it is said we have some of the most expensive.

The PC’s brought in casinos, where the most vulnerable of people may go to lose their money.

Being a PC MLA in Alberta, you can de-list medical expenses, bring in private health care, give yourself big raises, reduce funding for seniors drugs plans, because you know that in Alberta, people vote PC, regardless.

It is sad to think that the inmates in the Bowden Pen get better health and dental and precription drug plans than the seniors — the seniors who built this province. And this is the reward they get from the provinical government. The way the PC’s treat seniors is a shame.

It helps the PC cause also that the major media outlets in the province are PC biased, such as the talk radio stations and the TV news stations.

Yes, if you want a job for life, become a PC candidate in Alberta, either federally or provincially. Once you become a candidate you will always be elected in Alberta.
