NDP scare tac­tics are com­ing early

Prairie Post (West Edition) - - Opinion -

EDITOR:

Per­haps we should not be sur­prised at Shan­non Phillips ren­di­tion of what she thinks the UCP will do when they come into power next spring.

She in­di­cates she has the in­side story and her crys­tal ball proves the con­ser­va­tives will kill 150 teach­ers’ po­si­tions. She for­gets that con­ser­va­tives are also par­ents and want the best for their chil­dren. They also want a vi­able prov­ince free from crip­pling debt.

These NDP scare-tac­tics are com­ing early, even for them.

We are likely to hear more of this as the NDP get des­per­ate go­ing into an elec­tion year with such a dis­mal record.

Re­mem­ber – car­bon tax, no pipe­line, no fi­nan­cial plan, re­duced provin­cial credit rat­ings. Ba­si­cally we are broke so un­less we get our fis­cal house in or­der there may be lit­tle money to im­prove any govern­ment ser­vices. They can’t keep bol­ster­ing em­ploy­ment num­bers by cre­at­ing more and more lav­ish govern­ment po­si­tions.

Who will stand up to Justin Trudeau, look out for Al­berta and get things mov­ing? Time to take back this prov­ince and re­pair the dam­ages done by the NDP. Sadly, this may take many years as spend­ing is out of con­trol.
