Standing up for seniors’ issues

  • Aug. 24, 2010 3:23 p.m.

I have tried to inform Red Deer and area Albertans of the plight of seniors’ issues in Alberta.

I hold no position or belong to any seniors’ organization anywhere.

Most of my letters do not get published. However, the Red Deer Express publishes some of my letters.

I want to assure all of you fellow Albertans, I thoroughly research information before I make statements which is more than I can say about many newspaper reporters in this area.

I am not a politician nor do I have any other reason to express my opinions other than to state the facts as I know them.

I was an Alberta Conservative for many years and can be again, but I will never become a Stelmach Conservative.

This Stelmach government is destroying Alberta with their unusual and at times, stupid decisions and policies in regard to seniors and to other issues.

The Stelmach government has flip flopped on energy and health care issues and most recently on education issues.

Is there anything else more important to Albertans?

I will not be sending any more Letters to the Editor to any newspapers in the future.

This is my last letter and perhaps, it may not even be published.
