Conservative supporter reminds readers that Alberta’s glass is “half full, not half empty”

Dear Editor;
Once again, I read your editorial and became frustrated. You claim your reports are unbiased and take great pride in that, yet your editorials are frequently one-sided.
Therefore, I am taking up your challenge from last week’s paper. You want Conservatives to write, yet it is my opinion – Conservative-minded that it is, that those who write letters to the editor are dissatisfied in some way and feel the need to vent their frustrations.

Dear Editor;

Once again, I read your editorial and became frustrated. You claim your reports are unbiased and take great pride in that, yet your editorials are frequently one-sided.

Therefore, I am taking up your challenge from last week’s paper. You want Conservatives to write, yet it is my opinion – Conservative-minded that it is, that those who write letters to the editor are dissatisfied in some way and feel the need to vent their frustrations. If you have received no letters from Conservative supporters this past year then it is obvious that we are satisfied with how things are going. In addition, need I remind you of the last provincial election!

If Alberta was still a have-not province, we wouldn’t have so many “Eastern Liberals” moving here, trying to save us from the Conservatives! It seems to me we have a lot of people doing a lot of whining. Whiners didn’t build this province. It was built by doers and hard-working people who saw a job needed to be done, rolled up their sleeves, got right to work, and didn’t stop until the job was done.

There are a lot of people like that in Alberta. People who aren’t afraid of hard work and don’t look for the easy way out. That’s why our economy continues to be strong today. People are too quick to credit our oil reserves for our prosperity but we also have hard-working Albertans who are contributing as well.

When I watch the news and see all the terrible things that are happening around the world and the corrupt governments that are in power, I am reminded how lucky I am living in this province in this country. It is time to look at the positives of Alberta and Canada instead of focusing on the negative.

Remember, our glass is half full, not half empty.

Proud to be an Albertan,

Debbie Steeves

Bluffton, Alta.
