I always believed all Canadians were equal, but this is not true when it comes to energy. We have enough oil and gas to be self-sufficient, yet our governments do not believe we should stand on our own two feet.
Albertans and Ralph Klein have, and still complain about Western alienation. Every year they save $1,600 on provincial tax. They laugh at Easterners because we fall for it. To add insult to injury, each Albertan will receive a $400 rebate from the high price of gas we pay and still have billions to put in their coffers.
Our two Members of Parliament should be doing something about this? If they say that it is out of their hands, then what are they doing in Ottawa? Why have a government?
Recently an expert on fear was asked about what should we fear the most. "Your governments," he replied. And you can be sure he is right.
The air is very different in Ottawa. Once MPs get there, they become robots to a prime minister who doesn't care for ordinary Canadians.
