Still grumpy about Ruth Adria not getting the awards

Well I'm glum. Nothing has worked out in terms of getting Ruth Adria an award. She doesn't care about an award but I do.
I have moped through reading the newspaper today and commenting on posts. I feel grumpy now.
I feel that these awards are given to folks who are known to the political parties. In other words they are like golden handshakes of the public kind.
Activists who are gadflies and horseflies don't get picked.
So how can I get Ruth Adria recognized when I can't generate any publicity for her and her work? I'm not sure.
I will have to think about it. But for now I feel grumpy about the government of Alberta. I'm an ordinary citizen. Ruth Adria is an extraordinary citizen. I know what she does day after day and no one recognizes her work. It makes me feel sad for her.
Maybe I will write day after day about Ruth and this way at least I can give her the award of the respect and love of ordinary citizens like myself.
This is a picture of Ruth Adria getting an award from the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights.

Kristina Bambina What a delusional fool. Are you seriously going to tell me the AB NDP and LPC have been good for Canada’s middle class?! 😂 
Under Harper Canada had the richest middle class in the world. Try educating yourself. The LPC have been plagued with broken pro
mises and ethics violations. How did their last flip-flop in taxing small businesses work out Tony? Name one election promise the LPC have successfully kept in the last 25 months? How’s that budget working out? How was you life financially under a conservative Government verse now under this drama teacher and his ilk?

Tony Reneaux Kristina Bambina it seems like you are very upset with the Liberal party but the fact is that they are in power and have made some very good contributions towards uplifting the middle class. I hope you take it easy before you suffer a nervous breakdown.

Julie Ali Kristina Bambina I think that the federal Liberal government is way better than the anti-democratic Conservatives we had previously. In addition, although we had to use the NDP to broom out the PCs in Alberta, and although they are pretty poor in terms of governance, they are still an improvement over the entitled and arrogant PCs we had in Alberta for the past 44 years. The Conservative brand is broken and will continue to be broken until they come out of the dinosaur era.

Julie Ali http://www.cbc.ca/.../sarah-hoffman-pure-north-alberta... In a March interview with CBC News, Hoffman said she knew nothing about serious health safety issues identified in government documents related to the Calgary-based Pure North S'Energy Foundation before she approved a $4.2-million grant to the foundation in October 2016 for a primary-care clinic.

On April 10, in response to questions from Wildrose MLA Tany Yao, Hoffman told the legislature she still had no specific knowledge of health risks associated with the foundation's alternative health program.

But an Alberta Health Services (AHS) briefing note shows that on Sept. 28, 2016 — a month before her ministry signed the $4.2-million grant agreement — Hoffman's office was told health officials had previously identified the "potential for negative health effects" resulting from the foundation's distribution of high-dose supplements to vulnerable populations.

"Either she has misrepresented the facts inside the house, or her staff haven't provided her with the appropriate information, both of which should be very concerning," Wildrose accountability critic Nathan Cooper said in an interview.
