Reader responds to previous letter on Harper

Garfield Marks’s letter asks “When was the pivotal point reached and people felt Harper should retire?”

Garfield Marks’s letter asks “When was the pivotal point reached and people felt Harper should retire?”

Faced with the leaders of the other two parties, why would we want him to retire?

Tom Mulcair’s statement following the derailed train in Quebec was it’s all Harper’s fault. Parking brakes are applied by heavy equipment operators and lowering their blades on graders, cats, buggies, etc. This is done with common sense not government decree. Truckers apply brakes to the tractor and trailers and their trains are not 72 cars long.

Mulcair’s concerns regarding reversing the flow of oil in line number nine from Montreal makes one wonder about his mental stability. To say it would be unsafe to flow oil west to east instead of east to west when it previously flowed west to east requires some funky imagination.

Third choice for Harper’s job has shown his fairness for all Canadians when he has said how Quebec deserves more senators than Alberta or B.C., or when he said Quebecers are more special than other Canadians. If one wants neighbourhood safety, what is comforting about Mr. Trudeau describing the Boston Marathon bombers as “poor ostracized youth”?

If Garfield is blaming everything on Harper because the former mention said so or because the ‘press’ said so, please check for accuracy. Two weeks ago, the ‘press’ was reporting a traffic tie up on the QEII and #72 near Didsbury. Check a map!

Government is just a concept. People run government good or bad.

In Ontario, we have a professor from U of T and a deputy minister of education who wrote the curriculum that requires Grade 3 students to be educated on sexual discourse – yes, the same Mr. Levin that has been charged with six counts of child porn.

In B.C. the premier objects to pipelines crossing their soil because of possible leaks but if Alberta pays them more it would be then okay.

In Alberta, we have a premier that has had amnesia when it comes to pre-election promises. We institutionalize seniors when they reach this much amnesia.

Ontario pays wind power companies to not produce power.

How did these people get into these positions? Did we have anything to do with it?
