Alberta -- Going for Broke!

Alberta rural roads are getting an unusual amount of attention; Stelmach has let paving contracts to every local construction type in the rural ridings. There is more fresh pavement laid on rural roads “to control dust” than any of the major centers!

Yet highways that are collecting bodies over the years such as highway 19 are on the back burner. More votes to be had by paving driveways than highways.

What is the downside? We are going broke. After the fall election Stelmach is going to put the brakes on spending and ask us by way of higher taxes or higher utilities to make up the debit he caused getting re elected. There are tough times ahead!

There will be no move on getting our rightful share of resource revenue!

These people are shameless.
