Harper our best choice in next federal election

Harper our best choice in next federal election

Dear editor,

You get lots of letters on dumping the Conservatives and the Harper government,but never an alternative. You want Mulcair, I don’t think so, locally we are still trying to clean up the mess the Provincial NDP created on their way out. In my opinion, a federal NDP government would be a disaster for the economy.  So, you suggest the Liberals and Trudeau, he has to grow up a bit more before that can even be considered.

Look at all the NDP people elected in Quebec In the last federal election, or more recently in Alberta. They elected a bunch of people with no experience or ideas on how to govern. Already, Alberta has kicked out one new member before they even got into power. So YES, think and read before you vote. I would be the first to agree that Harper does not represent the ideal administration, but as of now, is the best of what we have to choose from.
