Wildrose called ‘sewer rats’ by deputy premier

Monday, Mar. 13 during question period NDP deputy premier Sarah Hoffman called the Wildrose members a bunch of “sewer rats.”

Dear editor,

Monday, Mar. 13 during question period NDP deputy premier Sarah Hoffman called the Wildrose members a bunch of “sewer rats.”

This is just another example of the mentality of the NDP government. Hoffman may have more education than most of us but I am starting to wonder what our education system has been teaching. It sure wasn’t manners. It’s very funny what a little question will bring out in a person. This shows how the NDP people think. It’s no wonder that Premier Rachel Notley has had more threats than any other Premier. Hoffman acting as deputy Premier thinks she can get away saying whatever comes into her head. She owes the people of Alberta and the Wildrose party an apology (Editor’s note: Hoffman made a half-hearted apology Mar. 14).

The latest poll out shows that the people of Alberta disapprove by 54 per cent of the way the NDP government is running our province. You would think that they would get the message, but they are so blinded by the power of having a majority that they can’t see the writing on the wall.

They think that by giving a few light bulbs and by giving back a very small percentage of the carbon tax that they can pull the wool over our eyes. The light bulb thing is the only way they came up a way for them to say that the carbon tax is helping the environment. Most of us have already changed our light bulbs. There must be some NDP voters that haven’t got around to changing their bulbs yet.

Deputy premier Hoffman should know that there are no rats in Alberta. There is just a bunch of NDP’s that think they don’t have to listen to the people of Alberta. They will find out when they call the next election. The only way to stop this is to join the Wildrose and vote for them.

Jim Cook, Westerose
