MLA Maureen Kubinec’s Nov. 26th guest column shows what’s wrong with Alberta’s PC government. She states as fact that “One of the regular talking points of the Official Opposition is to claim that after 41 years of Tory rule, the province of Alberta is some grim, dark, horrible place to live.”
Unless she can offer an example of any Wildrose Party spokesman claiming, saying, suggesting, implying or hinting that Alberta is “a grim, dark, horrible place,” she should apologize to your readers for misinforming them.
What the Wildrose does say – and demonstrates on a daily basis in the Legislature – is that Alberta is badly governed. PC MLAs take criticism of their own poor performance to be criticism of Alberta. Their incapacity to distinguish between their own party interest and the public interest of all Albertans is why they need to be replaced.
We in the Wildrose love Alberta every bit as much as Maureen Kubinec does, and think it deserves better management.
