Tonight, Albertans squandered a wonderful opportunity. Imagine a land of hope. Of dreams. Of freedom.
Now take that image and set it on fire – because that’s what Albertans did tonight. By re-electing a Progressive Conservative government, Albertans set this province back 20 years. Albertan voters elected a party that has been bullying and intimidating doctors, nurses and school boards. A party that struck a committee that didn’t meet for more than three years, and then set up the compensation structure to include “bonus” pay for sitting on the committee. A party that gave their cabinet ministers a 30% raise on a whim.
Well, Albertans have spoken. I disagree – entirely – with their choice; but this is a democracy. So, Albertans will have to be punished for their stupid decision.
Oh no, not by me. I won’t be lifting a finger (except for exploring real estate in Saskatoon) to do anything to Albertans for their decision. I will leave Alberta to suffer the consequences of their actions.
