Sir, I am writing to express my disgust and disappointment with what is going on in the political arena in our province.
First let me say I am not a Progressive Conservative member or supporter and admit to being biased in my opinions.
However, be that as it may, it seems to me that the two Red Deer MLAs have been insulted by the new premier, as he has ignored their past performance and service to their constituents.
Unfortunately, the present-day politician lacks the ethics that we have seen in the past.
I can guess they will both keep quiet and sit on the backbench so they can collect their pensions and perks when they leave the government.
I am very disappointed to see Premier Jim Prentice bring in unelected friends of his to take important positions in the government when competent elected people such as Cal Dallas and Mary Anne Jablonski sit on the backbench.
If they had any pride, they would quit immediately.
However, don’t hold your breath, remember the words of David Lloyd George: “If you want to succeed in politics, you must keep your conscience well under control.”
Are we expected to sit back and watch Prentice look after his buddies at the taxpayers’ expense?
