Janet Venema (EdmontonDecore) wrote:

Janice Sarich is a breath of fresh air in this riding and is giving Bill Bonko a run for his money. She will likely win the conservative seat in Edmonton-Decore and take this riding out of the Liberals hands after 22 years or so of poor representation. Janice has highlighted that Edmonton-Decore is a united nations kind of riding with a highly diverse ethnic population. She has bridged differences and created connection and communication. It will not surprise me to see Janice win a significant victory tomorrow.

I am a senior and in the past have voted conservative all my life. But this election in all probability I will not vote. Ed Stellmach is a poor replacement for Ralph Klein. Ralph at least had some compassion for the tax payers of Alberta. Stellmach has compassion only for big buisness. I only wish that the alliance party was running in my riding. I will not hold my nose and vote either Liberal or New Demerocat.

Albertans are continuously oppressed by the Progressive Conservative Party. Whether it be voting at polling stations whereby returning officers decide on which ballots are spoiled, law makers ensure that workers in this province have the worst labour laws in the country giving companies the right to out and out abuse their employees, or the general bullying by a population that is intolerant and works hard to silence voices of dissent. Alberta is not a democracy.
