Wake up Alberta, your government is out of control. BC and Saskatchewan are doing great, meanwhile Alberta is swamped by their own deficit. Where's Ralph? The stupid backstreet boys thought it was time for Ralph to go and look what we got....StewedMack. How is our province doing? Deficits you say?? How could that happen? Fine, oil prices were down for a bit, but they were up to $140 and yet we are in a deficit?? I am tired of these fake Conservatives running our province into debt because they think we are going to keep electing them.
If you dare stand up for your constituents, watch out, you might get booted.
An Alberta Tory MLA and former provincial cabinet minister has been kicked out of the government caucus after he criticized funding delays for a long-term care facility in his constituency.
Fort McMurray-Wood Buffalo member Guy Boutilier was asked to leave Friday evening after a meeting with Premier Ed Stelmach over his public complaints, said the premier's spokesman.
"It was clear to the premier that the MLA is not prepared to support government policy," Paul Stanway said yesterday.
"(Boutilier has) been removed from the Treasury Board and he's been told he's no longer welcome in the government caucus."
Last week, Boutilier spoke out against a government decision to delay building a long-term care facility in the oilsands boomtown of Fort McMurray that was approved 18 months ago. Health Minister Ron Liepert said the construction would be put off for four years.
These guys are idiots and they have gotten too sure of their reelection. It is time to move our votes towards another right wing party.
I will never vote Liberal, Green or NDP, that leaves Wildrose Alliance. So far I am not impressed with them either. Get a recognized leader, like Preston or Ezra, then you might have a chance. Persuade Boutilier to join Wildrose, that would be a huge boost to your cause. He might be a good leader. Get some ads going, get recognized, get some good people to run in the next election. I might support Wildrose, but not with the current leadership candidates.
Right now Alberta needs a strong leader, and no party has one.
