Re: “Dangerous talk from Singh,” David Marsden, Opinion, Oct. 15.
It is very disappointing to read the newspaper in Red Deer and see the partisan views shown by managing editor David Marsden.
He all but charged central Alberta to vote conservative.
Yes, you may vote what you feel is correct, but have you considered all the facts, policies and what is in the future for Alberta?
I hear lots of critical points against the Liberals. And yes, they have not been perfect. But what about the Conservatives?
In the recent past, Stephen Harper did nothing for Alberta, even though he was from Calgary. He did not increase jobs, there were no new pipelines (he had 10 years to do it), he did not prevent the oil crash, did not prevent the economic crisis brought on by banks. And there is more.
Now, can someone list what Harper and his Conservatives actually did for Alberta? I haven’t seen Earl Dreeshan for the entire time he has been an MP. What did he do? What did Blaine Calkins do?
The current Conservative party sounds very similar to the previous one. So will anything change for Alberta? I would bet on a no.
To all Albertans, nothing is perfect, but being verbally abusive and vandalizing signs makes our country less than democratic, where we should be able to voice our views without repercussions.
