Re: “NDP plans won’t help environment,” May 10
I wonder if Jim Taylor realizes how foolish he sounds? Those of us who proudly supported and volunteered for the Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta under Lougheed and Getty know the present day conservatives aren’t anything like them. They cared about the well being of the people, the future of this province and this country.
Now we have these Reform Party ones, pretending to be conservatives hell-bent on looking after their own well being and that of their rich friends, and sadly we have the Jim Taylors of this province quite willing to believe all the lies they are fed, just like they did with Klein, totally ignorant as to what they’re promising to do to them.
Scrap the carbon tax and just go on polluting Saskatchewan’s and Manitoba’s water and soil. Oilmen tell us it will eventually lead to lawsuits for our children to face.
No increase in royalties or taxes for their rich friends, let the people’s cost of living continue to skyrocket, who cares what it does to seniors.
No going farther in debt to create jobs, build schools or hospitals, let the people try to do without. Who cares what lives might be lost.
The one all the true-blue conservatives I know are furious about is their desire to cut billions off government spending by dumping the cost of health care onto the backs of the people, with a two-tiered health-care system, just like Klein tried to do with his Third Way. Doctors tell us it’s just another way for them to look after their rich friends by giving them first priority to our health-care system, while creating a disaster for the rest of us.
By the way, Jim, every true conservative I know voted for the NDP. We got tired of watching Albertans being treated like morons by a government that wasn’t anything like the conservatives we supported.
