Hi John,

Thanks for the great comments John from Hamptons. Believe me you will know who the "bloody hell" Len Webber is in the coming years. Keep up the great work at the LRT platform. Perhaps if the Libs win a Federal Election your Michael will get another award for all he does.

Cheers from Tory True, Tory Blue Calgary Foothills

regards

Lore

So how much did you pay those people to spout all of that nonsense, Mr Webber?

Mike Robinson was at Dalhousie LRT station five times this week meeting the electorate -- perhaps the biggest meeting point of all Foothills voters in the Northwest, and you were nowhere to be seen. Even Jennifer Diakiw over in Varsity could be seen at Brentwood Station with her Liberal opponent. You can see Harry Chase in the news frequently. But where were you? Nowhere...as usual.

Don't be spouting off random endorsements when a whole whack of your constituents don't even know who the bloody heck you are.

Does MLA Len Webber go door knocking when the Assembly is in its off-season? MLAs who do that can qualify themselves as hardworking. And those MLAs in the north (Peace River, McMurray, Slave, GP, etc) who do that should take top spot on the list.

Webber who?

Len Webber is one of the hardest working MLA's in the Province. He attends numerous events in the riding and personally replies to queries from people who contact him. Calgary Foothills is lucky to have him.

The only time we see Len Webber is when an election is near and he puts on his goofy blue and orange coat and goes out campaigning. He is a good example of the typical Tory MLA, overpaid and underworked. I have never see him do anything significant, he doesn't show up at community events, even when we use provincial grants or lottery money to upgrade or build new facilities. As he is not on the inside track of a ministerial position he is just one of the sheep who vote for what ever is put forward by the premier. I went to his website and he appears to serve or be co-chair on several important committees but I never see him presenting any results. I see he is on the affordable housing task force which has been a complete disaster, all they have done so far is hand out cheques to greedy landlords. We deserve better.

If you really want change then vote for it. Choose any of the other parties but don't vote Conservative. If you do then you will wake up the following day to the same lethargic government. The best thing that can be said of the Conservatives are that they don't interfere in the economy very much. The worst thing is that they don't govern or plan very much either. This hands off approach works great when the economy is running hot but when there are tough decisions to be made these guys don't know what to do.
