Agree with everything you say, BriceDream. We, as citizens just can't roll over & be apathetic. The "Don't Worry, Be Happy" mantra doesn't work for me. Instead, "Be Vigilant & Remember On Election Day" mantra is what I choose to live by.
I live in Calgary but Winnipeg is my hometown. Manitoba is where I grew up & I still feel a strong connection to the province I was born. I too, care about what happens there.
I also live in Alberta & we are stuck with the worst provincial government I have ever seen. We ran a $6 billion dollar deficit in 2012. The Redford Tories, despite a $2 billion dollar working deficit last year went out & borrowed another $4 billion dollars for infrastructure.
They are going to borrow another $13 billion dollars over the next four years on top of that. In 2017, we will be in hock to the tune of $17 BILLION dollars because of her criminal mismanagement of our provincial finances.
It's akin to not being able to pay your utility bills at home yet you go out & borrow $35,000 to buy a new SUV. Doesn't make sense yet that is what Premier Redford is doing.
People here are angry & in shock. Can't believe the lies that are being thrown at Albertans. The Tories have cut everywhere & I mean EVERYWHERE. Services are being cut across the board with all kinds of programs being eliminated. Yet there's Redford going out & borrowing billions to build new highways or schools that we can't afford. The old highways are crumbling & schools need to be fixed but the money isn't going there to fix them. Just absolute insanity.
Manitoba & Alberta have one thing in common. The provincial governments of both provinces need to be turfed. Be Vigilant & Remember On Election Day.
You guys got me going, whew!
