Well, well. Finally, someone is standing up for Alberta with action rather than words. A big thank you to Mayor Ted Clugston and Medicine Hat city council for boycotting the municipal government chinwag in Quebec. I believe you spoke for the vast majority of citizens of our fair city, who applaud you for your gutsy stand.
For some time now I have refused to purchase anything from Quebec (e.g. cheese and other dairy products). Holiday trips to B.C. a big no and buying anything from B.C. a last resort.
To those who foolishly say Alberta should talk more – plead and beg to those who are totally self-centered and only care about their own province. I think Rachel Notley is a nice person. She talked the talk for four years. Alison Redford talked the talk before Notley. All the sweet talk fell on deaf ears. Both learned that if you follow Marquis of Queensbury rules in a back alley fight, you are going to get kicked in the crotch! The time for pleading and begging for reason is over. Quebec and B.C. politicians have proven they don’t give a tinker’s damn for Alberta. Albertans are proud.
No other province comes anywhere close to Alberta when it comes to generously giving to the rest of Canada. Alberta is being bullied. The only way to stop a bully is give “him” a bloody nose. So, Premier Jason Kenney, do what you have to do. It’s much more appealing than surrendering to servitude and shame.
We are counting on you, premier. It’s time for action!
