It’s been a wild week-end of politics.
As the U-S prepares to choose the least questionable candidate, we were looking to the future in Alberta.
There were several rallies against the NDP.
One caused the Mayor of Red Deer, Tara Veer, to say that a Canadian version of the Confederate flag opposing the carbon tax, had nothing to with the city and complainers should be talking to the event organizers.
Well, somebody should.
I feel your anger about the carbon tax and how farmers got ploughed under, but provocative flags and profane signs will not change the government’s mind.
All you can do is change governments, and working solidly for that will get you a lot more respect.
The PC leadership candidates want that respect, but most of them do not want to unite the right. They call it a slogan, not a plan.
If they did some polling they might find out Albertans want a solid wall of defence.
Otherwise, they could face another big disappointment by being the latest to tell us they know what’s best for us.
Let me know what you think about uniting the right and scintillating signage.
