Edmonton Sun - - COMMENT -

Al­ways fun to read Robert Mcmechan’s let­ters. It gives quite the insight into how a true so­cial­ist be­liever can avoid any fact or re­al­ity that runs con­trary to their be­liefs. Credit where credit is due, Mr. Mcmechan gen­er­ally avoids the anger of most fol­low­ers of their high priest­ess Rachel Not­ley. Just an FYI, Robert, di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion is not a con­cept in­vented by the NDP. A suc­ces­sion of PC gov­ern­ments wasted bil­lions try­ing to force di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion, the big dif­fer­ence is that, un­like the NDP, they did not get pe­nal­ized bil­lions for break­ing con­tracts and they did not chase eco­nomic models that have al­ready proven fail­ures in other ju­ris­dic­tions. Not­ley launched yet an­other roy­alty re­view ex­ac­er­bat­ing an al­ready dire sit­u­a­tion with the crash in oil prices and what did she dis­cover? Af­ter all her moan­ing, the roy­alty rates were just fine. The PCS favoured cor­po­ra­tions; this is dif­fer­ent than Not­ley favour­ing pub­lic sec­tor unions how? Fi­nally, I guess you missed the part where Joe Ceci and Not­ley have hopped on­board the re­source roller coaster (have an­other read of the last NDP bud­get). Keep the faith, Robert, May will be here be­fore you know it and the NDP will be re­duced to be­ing the an­swer to a trivia ques­tion
