Here's the letter.

March 1, 2004

Ms. Karen Kryczka
MLA, Calgary West
Government of Alberta
#503 – 10800 – 97 Avenue
Edmonton, AB
T5K 2B6

Dear Karen:

The February 27, 2004 COSA rally/demonstration was a great success. The presentation to the Calgary Caucus was frustrating because of the Klein government’s undemocratic control of public presentations - of which Albertans will be informed.

COSA takes exception to your February 27th comment on television whereby you infer that seniors should look to the United Way for financial assistance. You are no doubt referring to the Seniors Services Intersectoral Planning study which is still in the planning stage. This study in no way provides direct financial support to seniors. I know, I’m on the Committee. You should make a public apology to the seniors of Alberta.

Finally, I am taking inquiries from seniors asking how they can get funding from the United Way. How embarrassing.

Yours sincerely,

Jerry Pitts,
Chairman, COSA
