Did anybody see Dr. McCormick's (one of the UofL's best!) blog in the Calgary Herald, there is a link in the National Post online as well. I agree with Peter there is a real lack of "campaign" in this city...the east side in particular feels about as vibrant as first year university math lecture. There are some very important issues at hand in this election that will play out in Lethbridge in a variety of ways. Plase take an hour or two and read what the parties are promising. The CBC "Alberta Votes 08" site is a great snap shot. We have all but missed the chance to have any real debate on issues in this election lets not let this translate into a low voter turn out!

After 37 years of having the things we should have been more used to, such as top-of-the-line education facilitators, schools, medical care, good hospitals, a sufficient number of doctors and nurses, regulated home heating fuel and electrical costs, lower costs for automotive fuel at the pumps, what we have is dictator Klein cut backs on everything stated above with the effect on our society that Alberta, instead of being a first place province is now second best, or less, as the most desirable province to live in. Add to that an unfair share of royalties on natural resources that are owned by the people of Alberta, all in the name of not losing votes. And, consider how the Conservative government has completely ignored environmental impact problems. That government, now under honest(?????) Ed, steady[perhaps stumbling funmbling] Stelmach, carries on as though allowing the continued abuse of our environment can go on indefinitely. News Flash! There are holes that are already in our atmosphere and the problem is getting worse year by year.
