Alberta Infrastructure : Save the Museum Building in Old Glenora---------Julie Ali Edmonton, Canada 1 sec ago Troubling that there is money to burn by the NDP folks but they can't save money by repurposing this museum. Are the NDP folks like the PCs folks who blew up hospitals? Are they going to blow up the RAM? For sure.
It's more than a museum-it's part of our history and our lives. Why won't the NDP folks we hired to government do what we ask them to do? Could it be they're like the PCs--willing to blow up hospitals but in this case the RAM?

Short term thinking and wasting money afflicts all politicians it seems.
