By Letter to the Editor on November 9, 2017.
For years I have resisted joining a political party. As a former principal, a father and now grandfather of children in this province I was dismayed at the direction the Department of Education was taking and its intrusion upon choices under the former government.
Now I am appalled and horrified at the NDP’s blatant efforts to fragment the family unit under the guise of protection of a select and privileged group of professional lobbyists. History reveals that the Nazis used this ploy, the communists used this ploy and now the Alberta NDP are using it to subvert the greater population to their brand of social engineering.
When you can isolate the youth of a country and destroy family unit values accompanied by state indoctrination in schools, you can pervert our young into accepting any philosophy.
Bill 10 was the thin edge of the wedge. Bill 24 (the gay-straight alliance bill) thrusts a dagger deep into the family culture we treasure in Alberta.
And while I want MLA Drew Barnes and his colleagues to do everything within their power to defeat this alarming bill, I think its passage will ring the death knell for the NDP government in the next election.
And while I think the legislature needs a strong opposition, my hope would be that the NDP will be reduced to no party or at least fourth party status in the next vote.
If someone as non-political (never a member of a political party) as I now consider joining a political party to work for the NDP defeat, my hope may become a reality.
