Maybe it's because liberals are not a threat out here, or maybe it's just that Albertans are too busy working to pay attention, but all I heard this week was, "Dion who?"
So far, those of us in the west who are paying attention, are not impressed. From his lack of English, to his dual citizenship, to his call for Kyoto and "sustainable development" aimed at the oil sands, to his support of the Canadian Wheat Board, it seems that Dion has written Alberta off as a no win province, so it's okay to bash it. Guess he thinks that will get him votes in Ont. and Que. , and it probably will, to some extent.
My question is, if he is such a federalist, why is he thumbing his nose at the province that is sending more money to Ottawa than any other province? Is he trying to make us so ticked off that we will separate? How does that make him a federalist.
I think it's time Albertans thumbed their noses at these liberal elitists. They think we are rednecked, knuckle dragging troglodytes, who drag women around by their hair. They also forget that we are the ones who are supporting the rest of Canada. We might only have 28 MP's, but we have all the big business coming here, we have no debt, and we have annual surplusses bigger than the federal government has for all of Canada, and Dion wants to tick us off? Is he on drugs?
