Re: Dangerous talk from Singh, David Marsden, Opinion, Oct. 15.
I am not sure I am Albertan enough to respond to David Marsden.
My grandfather came to Alberta in 1906, was wounded at Passchendaele in the First World War, and lived until 1966.
My dad was born in Alberta in 1926, and I was born in Alberta in 1957, and I have lived here my entire life.
When I was 10, I delivered the Red Deer Advocate, and I have had a subscription for as long as I can remember, which these days, isn’t long.
I do remember we had Tory rule most of my life in Alberta. How did Rachel Notley make such a mess in only four years?
Norway has a trillion dollars in a trust fund and we don’t. Stephen Harper and Jason Kenney wrote the equalization payment rules.
Good old Ralph Klein doubled my pension contributions so I could make less in my retirement by about 25 per cent.
Harper and Brian Mulroney account for 50 per cent or more of our national debt, and you are worried about a minority government?
Our provincial government is afraid of a 16-year-old who will baffle them with facts and make them look like they are totally inane.
Maybe we should separate. We do seem to have a track record of being obtuse.
