Use the ABC voting principal: anybody but Conservative

Why would anyone in their right mind want to vote for the Alberta Conservatives under Jim Prentice? Scandal after scandal after scandal and they still think they deserve the right to manage our provincial affairs.

Why would anyone in their right mind want to vote for the Alberta Conservatives under Jim Prentice?

Scandal after scandal after scandal and they still think they deserve the right to manage our provincial affairs.

Now Thomas Lukaszuk and Jonathan Denis are embroiled in two more, adding to the long list of Conservative indiscretions.

This election is completely unwarranted and is costing taxpayers $30 million. An election that was already slated for 2016.

Who’s paying for all the TV and radio ads, the big signs, and the full-page newspaper ads anyway? I’m betting it’s the taxpayers.

This election was called only to get a leg up on the opposition parties before they could mount any effective campaigns.

That is dirty politics at its lowest but it’s also a drain on taxpayers dollars that the Conservatives seem to have little regard for. But it’s gonna backfire on them.

What’s more infuriating is that this $30 million could have gone toward improving our ailing health-care delivery. Probably just a drop in the bucket to them but every dollar helps.

Prentice says 50 per cent of our provincial budget goes to health care in Alberta. But what percentage of that goes toward duplicate administration jobs?

I’m thinking a very large percentage of the health-care budget goes to those who have nothing to do with actual health-care delivery.

They’re paper pushers who build empires around themselves to protect their cushy jobs. And that is something that won’t change under the PCs.

They’ll just maintain the status quo if they are put back in power. Don’t let that happen. Vote for anyone else.

The Conservatives have broken the majority of their campaign promises for 43 years and have squandered the wealth of this province.

Are we going to continue to let them abuse us and our tax dollars? Geez I hope we have more sense than that.

So I’m urging you to vote Liberal, NDP, Wildrose or Alberta Party. Use the ABC principal (anyone but Conservative).

They need to be sent a message and we need a change in government.
