Don’t feed the animals

Dear editor,

Rachel Notley and her NDP government have started something that she or anybody else will not be able to finish.

They have started a $25 per day daycare. This money would be better spent giving it to the mothers of these children to stay home and look after their own children. It would probably give the mothers more than they will have left after they pay the carbon tax and all the other taxes and expenses that come with a job. It would also save the government the trouble of hiring all the people to run this program. This program is totally run and controlled by the NDP bureaucracy so they can control who gets help.

Rachel has also started to feed the kids at school program. This is also one that is under the supervision of our government. She is coming up with all the ways she can think of to control people’s lives and what a good way to get their votes. She is also expanding the bureaucrats so that she can brag about all the employment she has created.

There are signs all over in our national parks telling you not to feed the animals. The reason park wardens tell us that is so the animals don’t become dependant on getting a free lunch and so when there is no one feeding them they will starve.

The same thing applies to feeding the kids at school. Why should the parents be responsible for feeding their own children when they know that Rachel will do it for nothing?

There is a fine for up to $25,000 for feeding the animals in our parks. I would suggest that the NDP should be fined for starting this program instead of going after the parents of the children who are coming to school hungry. Most of these parents would rather be spending their money on booze, drugs, getting tattoos, or they are just too lazy to get up and make their children’s lunch.

This is just two of the most stupid ideas that the NDP have come up with, but in their minds it is a brilliant way to get the people dependant on them and get them to vote NDP in the next election. They don’t care how far they put us all in debt to pay for these harebrained ideas.

By 2019, election year, the Alberta debt will amount to $16,000 for every man woman and child in Alberta. This borrowed money is going to pay all the welfare programs that the NDP can think up.
