QUALITY QUOTES FROM MARK LISAC 

From “Alberta Politics Uncovered” NeWest Press 2004)

Quote # 1
p. 58: THE POVERTY OF ALBERTA POLITICS
“Alienation begins at home. It means alienation from politics inside Alberta as much as it means alienation from politics in Ottawa. The poverty of Alberta politics will continue as long as people in Alberta keep shutting their eyes to that truth.”

p. 106 “Alberta has reached a political dead end. The fiscal obsession has gone up in smoke. (Earlier uses analogy: ashes are what's left after a mortgage paper is burned).......... Provincial elections have become lopsided displays of power by the governing party. Frustration has been increasingly replaced by apathy.

Alberta has been bamboozled by money and politics. A new Alberta could be built around people instead.....”
