The only conservative party in Alberta

Unite the Right is a waste of time, Wildrose is the way to go says reader

Dear editor,

Marvin Moore (June 30) recommends a backroom deal between 22 Wildrose and 9 PC MLAs, to replace those two parties by a new party. Sounds like “doing a Danielle Smith” all over again. And so too does Jason Kenny’s intrusion sound like that, another Prentice and whoever will dance with him. Only in his case it may be more out in the open does that make it any better?

While it is the case that Wildrose was tarnished by Danielle Smith’s attempt to “unite the right,” it is time to further polish it up as the only conservative party in Alberta.

The aim of the nonsense from Moore and Kenny, et al, is a party dedicated more to achieving power than conservative principle. Of course it is not a bad thing to work for getting rid of the NDs as soon as possible, with their “progressive” garbage like a carbon tax (hidden sales tax). But it should not be done with further abuse of the term “conservative” by suggesting conservatives can have anything to do with “progressives,” meaning liberals and socialists. Meaning PCs.

What everyone should realize is that Wildrose is the only conservative party in Alberta.

PCs have been liberals for decades, having fooled the people over and over again with “conservative” in their self-contradictory name. It is very likely that for Albertans to have anything further to do with PCs (or PCs under a new name) would mean policies like unto the NDP, with men in girls’ bathrooms and sales tax in the form of “carbon tax.”

While it is true that the people didn’t have confidence in Wildrose last time because of the Danielle Smith abandonment, that “unite the right” attempt, it is also true that they should have had confidence and should now have confidence in the leadership of the revitalized and only conservative party, Wildrose.
