The prime minister said in testimony to an investigation into the activation of the emergency law that he was “completely sober” about his decision to invoke the law. This is certainly an awkward statement to make, and one more glimpse of his indifference to civil liberties and his main focus on calculated political opportunism.

In effect, he says he feels at peace with his decision to enforce the strongest laws in our country to quell protesting citizens. You must have struggled, and still struggle with the decision to suppress the

To me, this is the most persuasive comment from the survey and shows that this leader has no idea about reinvoking this law.

Much debate went to the Emergency Act

What a Canadian! Can you imagine any other country making a self-righteous fuss about a state of emergency law coming into force for a few days to rid itself of the hooligans that threatened the quality of life of its inhabitants in the occupied territories?

State and city police and the RCMP were apparently unable to lift the blockade. The US government was pressuring the Canadian government to resolve the situation at the border. Trucks and people could not get through the closed border crossings, resulting in great expense and inconvenience. Truck drivers were protesting that they couldn’t cross from the US to Canada without being vaccinated (unless quarantined). However, their protests were illogical because the United States would not allow them to enter there if they had not been vaccinated.

Political columnists should wait

Our new Prime Minister has presented a way to rebate funds for many Albertans economically strapped by inflation.

She has some interesting ideas, which she takes time to consider at the party.

Some of us are getting some of our money back, which is good and we appreciate it. Available for months. So what happens?

UCP’s record of canceling contracts and reversing previous decisions is not very good. Rachel Notley’s reaction was negative, but what she said was important. Also for me as a supporter of her UCP in the past. She and her party are trustworthy, she said. Her record supports that claim.

I think the issue of trust is an issue that we have to take seriously when voting. Who can you trust? Wrong decisions can be expensive.
