We need to think differently

Where have all the leaders gone? I am reminded daily of the ever increasing numbers of sheep in this province, and have given serious thought as to how human beings ever made it to the top of the food chain.

Canada is the number one choice of all countries in the world to immigrate to. How many of you are willing to fight for it?

Morally and ethically we are all failing.

As citizens who are truly concerned about what your government are doing, whether it be municipal, provincial or federal, we are failing. As parents who should have vision and clarity beyond the present day, we are failing.

Since 1971, there have been three major economic booms in Alberta and several smaller ones.

Since 2009, our national and provincial economic policies have been largely controlled by few financial institutions based in eastern Canada. We have a political ‘party’ system that we borrowed from the English, that is so antiquated it should have been thrown out decades ago.

One person representing one group of people from one area, the leader to be chosen on the same ballot. If 10 people in the same riding want the job, let the best win. If one person wants to be premier, same idea, only they have a lot more miles to cover.

If you are not happy with the job a certain politician is doing, tell them. The answer I hear so often to this is, “They never listen.” They will all be listening April 23rd.

Politicians are not the brightest bulbs in the pack. They do not have all the answers. Stop whining to government, take responsibility of your own life.

Ask yourself between now and April 23rd, “Am I better off now than I was 10 years ago, or should I think different?”
