Here in Edmonton, our far left mayor and councilors cut the mosquito fighting budget by $200,000 and stopped spraying dandelions because they are not poisonous. I can live with not spraying dandelions, but we are being eaten alive here for no other reason than the greenies on our council are out of control. My guy, Iveson, is the biggest greenie of them all. We can't idle our cars in minus 30 weather because of him, students at university have to pay over $200 a term for those students who ride the transit, even if they themselves don't use the transit, and now we can't spray for mosquitoes or dandelions because it will hurt our environment!
We have to spray DEET on our bodies to ward off the mosquitoes, is that not bad for us humans? Do you really think that plants care about the chemicals that only kill the mosquitoes? I want Iveson to take a walk in the park, without spraying himself with ANY chemicals, and see how enjoyable the experience is for him, maybe he should take his family too. Even our dog can't go outside without being swarmed by these bloodsuckers. I especially hate when they fly up your nose. I hope no-one gets the west nile virus from all those mosquitoes because of bad decisions from our city council. Tourists are not going to be impressed by our murder/mosquito city no matter how many arts museums mayor Mandel builds.
If that isn't bad enough, our far left mayor wants a ban on knives! We all know how well the ban on long guns worked, so let's just ban carrying knives as well. Edmonton is now the murder capital of Canada and of course the politicians need to appear to be doing something, so we get a ban on knives. Stupidity in the extreme. Our new police chief is in full agreement with Mandel, I had hoped for more from the new police chief, but it appears that he is already pandering to the mayor.
My husband pointed out today that we never see the police ticketing anyone anymore, and Edmonton drivers are the worst in Canada, another feather in our cap. As a matter of fact, we just never see the police. Crime is down the lefties shout every time the Conservative government talks about more money for building jails. I say, build more, convict more, and send more greenies to those jails for deception and fraud perpetrated on the public! Australians are learning this lesson the hard way. They now have to live with a carbon tax that will do nothing to help solve actual pollution.
