Dear Premier;

Today you reaffirmed your incestuous relationship with the insurance companies. Telling us we should buy insurance now to get premium service is just one more step in your road to total privatization of health care, a mirror of what is seen in the USA. No matter how Rod Love spins it, it remains the same. Our opposition should get all the details on those closed door meetings you had with the insurance companies regarding auto insurance that hurt us so badly. With all our medical data available to insurance companies on line we have much to be concerned about.

Hospitals; private for profit businesses serving the people who have the insurance to pay. In the case of Alberta, probably owned and operated by Jim Dinning or one of your other close and trusted friends. Sold away new and old at a penny for every hundred dollars in value, just like our electricity.

Then the second set of hospitals to cover those “basic” items. Just like the US; for indigenous and homeless people and people with no such insurance. All budget driven.

You did not receive a mandate to do any of this! Only 20% of the population voted for you! I think before you travel further down this road you should put all your cards on the table and go another election.

As with the campgrounds and electricity I can only hope there will be sufficient reason to turn back any titles or deeds given in this period of insanity. I see you and your party as lost soles, bumbling from one experiment to another driven not by necessity by your phobia regarding the ideal that private is the only way to go.

Awash with money you don’t find it necessary to really plan; you have enough cash you can buy your way out of pretty well any predicament. What an insane mess you are creating! I’m very sure a future court will see it as such and allow Albertan’s to recover some of their losses.

Your policies are ripping this province apart! Oil or nothing is sick! I really don’t think people get the government they deserve.
