Ken­ney would take Al­berta back­wards

Re: “Ken­ney seeks quick Calgary seat,” Oct. 30.

Jason Ken­ney is un­equiv­o­cally declar­ing him­self the lat­est Con­ser­va­tive mes­siah. What the pre­vi­ous mir­a­cles might have been, is any­body’s guess.

As it hap­pens, a can­cer hospi­tal, par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Green Line LRT, schools in far-flung suburbs, farm labour leg­is­la­tion and a madein-Al­berta car­bon tax that in­dus­try is quite amenable to, brings Al­berta limp­ing into the 21st cen­tury.

Ken­ney and oth­ers clearly hope that by time trav­el­ling us all back to the 20th cen­tury, they will be able make all those bruised Al­berta egos bet­ter again. In ad­di­tion, we can all ex­pect him to demon­strate, at every grand-stand­ing event over the next two years, his abil­ity, by im­pli­ca­tion, to walk on water. Ex­pect, how­ever, a per­sonal flota­tion de­vice to be dis­cretely placed off­stage right, just in case. Leonard Up­ton, Calgary
