Julie Ali Christina Wallace I am not surprised. Rachel Notley blocked me from her Facebook page for raising concerns about my handicapped sister's care in the long term care system. The politicians don't care about issues. They care about their public persona. It's unfortunate but at least we can express our dismay about the anti-democratic behavior on Facebook and on our blogs.

Elizabeth Jackson Julie, Not surprised, I looked into an assisted living facility in St. Albert for my Mom and her partner, but if her partner passed she would be evicted in 48 hours. 
Unbelievable! Seniors seem not to have the support they deserve in Alberta.

Julie Ali Elizabeth Jackson Residents at long term care facilities have no rights. My sister was evicted from her long term care facility because I talked in public about her care issues. I am now being sued by the organization for $500,000. It's all about silencing advocates in AB with the full cooperation of the GOA that has downloaded these problems to families because they just want to be a bank. These private operators act as a business and do what is profitable. Even the non-profits do this. We were also the last province to agree to include age as a form of discrimination just yesterday. Even in this matter the GOA had to ask for a year to do restrictions. What this means for seniors I am not sure. It may be we are no better off and can't complain to AB Human Rights Commission even after the addition of age as a prohibited form of discrimination if continuing care facilities are exempted; I have written about the law suit here: http://readingchildrensbooks.blogspot.ca/.../age-will...

Julie Ali So I am curious June. Have you thought of a door to door campaign in Sarah Hoffman's constituency to raise this issue? This was done by AFL with reference to Sundre Hospital long term bed closures and the direct campaign had remarkable results in that some of the long term care beds were saved. We could target both Sarah Hoffman and Brian Mason's constituency and see if this has any results.

Sylvia Krogh I think we are fortunate to have the NDP in power - for if anyone is going to save the museum it will be the NDP who appreciate history. Right now they just have to grapple with their revenue problem.

Sylvia Krogh You should be angry at Premier Klein and his Conservative cronies for deregulating electricity in the first place. Because of that we have such high electricity prices. The NDP inherited a mess from the PCs.

Sylvia Krogh Julie Ali Gainers, NovAtel, MagCan, etc. are all financial disasters caused by the previous Conservative gov't funding their friend's companies - and we are still paying for them. That happens when Conservative gov'ts support their friends' and donors' private companies - as we now have to do with the electrical companies because they were deregulated. Sweetheart deals were made with the private electrical companies so they don't have to take any risks - and the NDP inherited this mess. They are forced to honour these Cons sweetheart deals with the electrical companies - which of course is costing us money. They had no choice. So you are blaming the wrong party.

Julie Ali Sylvia Krogh I am blaming both the parties. PC and NDP. This is not a problem that is entirely that of the NDP but certainly they are continuing the problems in the good old PC way with some interesting new financing methods such as Bill 34.

Julie Ali I also notice y'all are not blaming the NDP for the blank cheque given to the Balancing Pool that all of us are going to pay for in the form of a debt. Bill 34 was not required and was entirely designed to ensure the NDP folks did not look bad to the public. We could have paid for the messes created by the NDP on our electricity bill but the increase in bills would have lead to yapping by citizens. Now we pay for the increase in electricity bill in the form of debt. Nice work by the NDP who are far more canny than the PCs in hiding their bad work.
