Lost hope for fam­ily’s fu­ture

Re: Cana­di­ans will pay for pipe­line paral­y­sis, Opin­ion, Nov. 21

We all un­der­stand why Al­berta’s oil­patch has been hit with a “cat­e­gory 5 hur­ri­cane.” No promised pipe­lines. No way now, or in the near or dis­tant fu­ture to get our oil to mar­kets over­seas. With fed­eral and pro­vin­cial in­dif­fer­ence and in­ept­ness, I see no rea­son for any op­ti­mism.

That cat­e­gory 5 hur­ri­cane is now bear­ing down on my fam­ily. We have three univer­sity-ed­u­cated, smart and hard­work­ing chil­dren. We are hav­ing a fam­ily meet­ing this week to en­cour­age our chil­dren to move out of Al­berta. As par­ents we had hoped our chil­dren could stay in Cal­gary and thrive here, but that no longer seems pos­si­ble. I lay the blame squarely at the feet of Justin Trudeau and Rachel Not­ley. They need to move on as well.

Nancy Forbes, Cal­gary
