All taxpayers being punished by NDP: reader

Who should pay for Rachel Notley’s tax grab asks one local reader.

Dear editor,

Who should pay for Rachel Notley’s tax grab?

When I was in school a couple of years ago (okay, okay, a few decades ago) and a boy was being bad in class, the whole class was punished. I didn’t like it then and I don’t like it now.

Albertans are being punished for gas emissions produced by the oil and gas industry, the coal industry and even for cows farting.

How about all the bad air created by politicians flapping their lips? If the gas emissions are created by certain industries, they should be punished/taxed, not the rest of the class.

Furthermore, the oil and gas industry and the coal industry have been doing a very decent job at eliminating gas emissions. As for the cow farting issue, I don’t know much about it yet but I will look into it and report my findings to Rachel Notley and the new Prince of Ottawa.

Note: It was pointed out to me from a Rimbey reader that there are consequences for mocking someone who was born on Dec. 25 It seems the new Prince of Ottawa was born on Dec. 25, so to appease certain people’s minds I will now refer to the New Prince of Ottawa as the “New Messiah of Canada.”

Ray Barrette, Winfield
