Letters, June 23: ‘Equalization is very much a local issue’

D’oh! Mr. Mayor, your rant about together with a referendum on equalization inside a municipal election poll as being disrespectful to individuals who wish to vote on native points, is disrespectful to Calgarians. First, it exhibits that you simply suppose Calgarians do not need the flexibility to dissect and differentiate voting points on a poll. Second, it exhibits that you don’t suppose that equalization is a neighborhood subject. It’s our tax {dollars} that fund equalization and that, so long as we’ve waited, don’t come again to us. Third, and most significantly, this exhibits that you simply and the vast majority of council worth re-election, aggrandizement and legacy greater than the need and properly being of the folks. In all probability your largest gaffe ever!
(It’s fascinating that Alberta alienation isn’t seen as a big native subject. We have to be imagining all of the empty buildings, large unemployment and exploding taxes for all.)

We had Pierre Trudeau and now we’ve Justin Trudeau. The specialists had been proper, the second wave is means worse than the primary.
(Thanks for the chuckle.)

Simply can’t watch for this Inexperienced Line undertaking to begin, and to indicate us how incompetent our system is. A number of years in the past, they in-built Prague one other leg of their wonderful public subway system. The leg stretches throughout the entire metropolis. Partially on floor, principally underground, some bridges, 17 or so stations, with out affecting floor site visitors. Accomplished in three years. However, all of us witnessed the constructing of the extension of the CTrain from Anderson Station to Bridlewood a couple of years again. On the floor, alongside facet of already present rail tracks, 5 floor stations. No bridges, no tunnels. A stable 5 years to finish. Let’s simply see how lengthy and at what price this may take.
(Will probably be beneath intense scrutiny.)

I’ve all the time been suspicious of your editorial feedback within the letter part that dismiss readers opinions with remarks like “most Albertans would disagree” or “many Albertans don’t feel that way”. Apparently Postmedia has their finger on the heart beat of how most Albertans really feel. So I needed to snort when studying the June 19 version, when your response to J.D. Spherical’s letter on the UN safety council seat was, “A considerable waste of time chasing something no one cared about …” Instantly above that remark was your day by day readers ballot which requested, “Do you care that Canada didn’t win a seat on the UN security council?” with a whopping 91% of the vote indicating that they did care. Maybe it’s best to cease telling us how we really feel.
(All legitimate factors, Laurie. And lots of Albertans would agree.)

In latest photographs of Mayor (Naheed) Nenshi, he’s seen sporting his purple COVID-19 masks. Now that his multi-billion legacy has been accepted, maybe Nenshi ought to contemplate a color change to his masks. The color purple could be an excellent color for his masks, shifting ahead. In spite of everything, purple has all the time been symbolic to debt and this Inexperienced Line will price the residents of Calgary, not simply property homeowners dearly.
(We hope you might be mistaken.)
