Darren Harker Bernadette N Rob Fisher Your kids won't die from a large debt, but they certainly could from not having proper Health services, which is how the WRP and any Jason Kenney-led party will govern. We're still recovering from the Klein cuts to that infrastructure.-----------Julie Ali Darren Harker A large debt is problematic no matter what political party you support. I don't believe it is necessary actually. We have a major spending problem created by the PCs. We have ABCs-agencies, boards and commissions galore that seem stuffed full of entitled folks who get paid for doing what? Good question. Each and every ABC needs scrutiny and then we need to delete as many as we can. I dislike having to pay for folks who aren't providing deliverables. Where are the deliverables for these ABCs? In a similar fashion why are we paying for 61 school boards and 61 superintendents when kids aren't getting sufficient special education services and families are without respite services? We can have a superboard if we need to have any school boards and then we can cut down the superintendent salaries. Will we lose good people if we cut salaries? Sure. But we won't be losing major money servicing debt.---

Graham Thomson: Based on the bigoted Facebook comments, today’s Wildrose party looks very much like yesterday’s Wildrose party.
The Wildrose’s homophobic “lake of fire” has turned into a tire fire. It is proving impossible to extinguish. The latest flare-up came on the...

 I believe your sexuality is your business, not government's. I believe religious institutions have the to follow their beliefs in regard to who they marry. I believe every person has the right to their opinions. I believe control over a women's reproductive choices is hers to decide. I consider myself socially progressive, fiscally conservative, and here's a surprise, I'm a Wildrose supporter provincially, and Conservative federally. Don't paint all members or any political party with the same brush. Just like Canada is made up of citizens who hold a wide variety of opinions on social issues, so too does every political party

Nicole Schenk It's nice to see some moderate views in the WRP and their supporters. Unfortunately, that seems the be the quiet group at the back...

Bernadette N Rob Fisher Not true Eleanor. The rarity in the party is the loons like this guy! You will find that a majority of wildrose supporters believe exactly what Faye has just stated. But that doesn't make for interesting news does it And it sure won't win the NDP the next election either. Im a fiscal conservative and just don't see how a balanced budget and provincial prosperity has anything to do with anyones sexuality. Equal rights for all as long as we can all keep working and not leave our kids a life time of outrageous debt that they will be taxed to death on.

Faye Mock I've found far more WRP supporters who hold socially progressive views, versus intolerant narrow minded ones.

Darren Harker Faye Mock Why are socially progressive WRP supporters always so quiet when other WRP supporters start threatening our politicians and voicing their hate?

Julie Ali Thank you for a response that defies the stereotypes that seem to abound here. Yes, it is possible to be a Wildrose Party supporter and still have an intact brain. Yes, it is possible to be a Wildrose Party supporter and believe in the human rights of all folks. Yes, it is possible to be a WR Party supporter and ask Mr. Jean to kick out the folks who do not represent what I believe are the majority of Albertans who are decent folks and who will vote in the WR in the next election. Why would we vote WR? Because we voted PC and we voted NDPC and now we're voting for the representation we believe that we will get from the WR.

Julie Ali Darren Harker I believe we will all survive when the WR come to power. If the WR folks take the Kenney guy I will vote for some other party. The fact is I have seen the antics of Harper's Team and I am not impressed.

Julie Ali Eleanor Fincham There are good people everywhere. When you focus on the dandelions you miss seeing the lawn. This is true of WR folks. I mean sure there are some folks tend to blame a specific group like Muslims, the Liberals etc. but I guess this is true of all the political parties and their members. Who knows why folks need to have a group to pound on?

Kevin D Brown Seems to me that if there really were tolerant folks in the WRP, then they would have voiced real dismay over the persecution of leader Daniel Smith over her support for inclusive policy, and she would not have felt the need to cross the floor.
Many more progressive PC's have likewise found very little to inspire in Jason Kenney's ascending to the throne...

Darren Harker Julie Ali Maybe you're right, but it seems the good voices are drowned out by the louder dissenters. 

It's good to have debate with rational thinkers like yourself. 👍

Darren Harker Julie Ali I can't vote for Boom/Bust budgets Julie. I'm afraid that's what the WRP will do. We've been down that road for too many years without saving a dime for the future (now). 

And no, not Kenney anything! So we agree on that for sure.

Julie Ali Darren Harker Mr. Kenney is just like Mr. Harper who is in the elite sector. The NDP are also in the elite sector despite all their baloney about being for the little guy and little gal. I mean just look at what they did to AUPE as soon as they got to power; although they used the folks in AUPE to get to power as soon as they got to power they screwed them. Yup the real people's party. http://www.cbc.ca/.../former-alberta-health-services-ceo... In late October 2015, the deputy minister asked her to get everyone quickly back to the bargaining table. She said this was done based on a "promise of a reasonable mandate, akin to settlements with other unions and reflective of what we were accruing for this union's anticipated salary increase.

"The reason for getting negotiations re-established quickly was to avoid any embarrassment for (Premier Rachel Notley) when she attended the AUPE (annual general meeting) in October," she wrote.

But Kaminski said once both sides were back at the bargaining table, it became clear the NDP government would not allow AHS to make a reasonable offer.

"We were given a mandate of one per cent per year, for three years — far less than any other union has received, far less than government gave its own employees, and far less than we are accruing for wage settlements."
