All I Ask
Simply Selles by David Selles

Since the election is now less than a week away, I figured it would be time for me to comment on it.

I’m not going to spend the whole column talking about each party or which way I might vote though.

I’m simply going to spend most of it talking about how sad politics as a whole has become.

Since I’ve been able to vote in elections, I’ve struggled with even picking a party to vote for because it seems that all the big parties campaigns are no longer based on what they can do for the province or country, but they’re based on what the other parties can’t.

What I mean by this is that every forum or debate I’ve watched over the years is filled with the Conservatives, NDPs, and Liberals talking trash about one another instead of truly informing the public on what they can do for the people.

I’ve never been closer to spoiling a ballot this year than I have in the past and that is due to Alberta Leaders Debate that I watched last week Thursday.

I was hoping to be informed about the policies that each party had but instead I got to hear about how terrible all the leaders were.

This frustration brews around the two big dogs in the election, Jason Kenney and Rachel Notley.

These two are smart enough to realize that it will most likely be one of them as Premier after the election, but the smarts seem to stop there.

When Kenney was asked a question, every answer he had started with “Rachel did or didn’t do this” or “Rachel only hurt Alberta by doing this”.
And the roles were reversed when Notley was asked a question.

I’m sick and tired of election campaigns being giant mud slinging contests now.

As a eligible voter, all I want to know is how each leader is ready to bring Alberta back to being one of the strongest provinces in Canada.

Leave the nonsense at home and give me your policies.

That’s all I ask.
