An open letter to Premier Notley…food for thought

Dear editor,

An open letter to Premier Rachel Notley…

There have been many similar articles as this one below, naming ways to kick-start our Alberta economy in these times. Please put the political partisanship aside and try to make some policies that will truly benefit Albertans.

Like the majority of Albertans, entirely disgusted by the wasted millions of hard earned taxpayer dollars to all media outlets, for voter unapproved, unwarranted carbon tax information in which your mailed flier outlined sufficient information, for months until our children finished their Christmas break. Instead of implementation of additional taxes to implement draconian energy programs, while reasonable pay-down alternatives are not quite ready on the market.

Marketing 101, use positive supportive measures to have the electorate willingly participate in energy efficiency because it saves them overall more money while doing so, and reduce coal usage as alternative energy, comes on line, rather than waste billions to prematurely shut down extremely efficient coal plants for minute change to global carbon emissions, overset by increased numbers of plants worldwide, more in a day than the total Alberta shut downs.

Please read this article, it’s the only suggestion I will email to you. I hope the media will put your government on the hot spot, as up to now most mainline media has given your government a free ride. Also look to what was done in the electorate supported Ralph Klein era, we need your government to control its spending problem. Your finance minister needs to be fully open and accessible to the Alberta electorate, not NDP selected representatives. Maybe then your government could find some good strategies to implement. It will be a long time before oil revenues get back to where they were, if ever, leaving our children with your mess, so you need to find ways to increase investment. A good example is Ireland where low tax rates brought in a lot of business, in addition to an incubator fund such as was used in the past.

I hope that this time you will be able to respond to this letter.

Note: Federally, there have been many ways to decrease fuel consumption (up to 200 MPG) in gas engines that have been suppressed by buying up patents in the past. Combine this with hybrid electric technology, then we may be able to meet our signed emissions targets. Perhaps we could create a new industry to covert all the cars on the road. Now that would be interesting!
