Who has experience leading in Alberta?

It seems to me that prolific letter writer and rabid NDP hater Joe Sawchuk should dig a little deeper in his history books.

It seems to me that prolific letter writer and rabid NDP hater Joe Sawchuk should dig a little deeper in his history books re: the qualification of our politicians whether in federal or provincial governments.

I don’t think to many of our leaders graduated with honours from any university with a degree of civil management.

No one that I know of is experienced when first elected to office. Our premier was a radio talk show host . All of them learn on the job with the help of senior civil servants. We only hope that they are intelligent enough to learn before they screw up too badly and that is a serious problem as they get caught up in their ideology and make irreversible decisions like major sales of land and public assets.

As for Alberta, it seems to me that not too many years ago they had a large Heritage Trust Fund consisting of billions, but it seems the smart and wise managers (read Conservatives) have squandered all this and are billions in the hole.

My advice is to give the NDP a chance — they certainly can’t do any worse.
