Letters from Friday: Trudeau received endorsement for his leadership

Article content

Is there a Canadian political leader who is too democratic? Justin Trudeau was brave enough to ask the people for a go-ahead to continue to lead as prime minister and work to end the pandemic in the best way that he and his government could.

I appreciate being asked who I want to lift my country out of the pandemic. Trudeau wasn’t just thinking about himself, he was trying to get an idea of ​​how we all want our government to continue with best practices on the biggest health problem the world has ever faced.

His decisions to date have made sense and have good results. Your future decisions are the best for me (and for you). I shudder to think of how a conservative prime minister could take the reins and guide us out of our national health epidemic.

Don’t we enjoy (appreciate) CERB and other supports for all sectors of our society, as we were all forced to succumb to COVID-19 restrictions? We have landed on our feet and are ready to reasonably continue in our work, school and personal life.

We will be in good hands to finally end our pandemic problems, permanently.

Notley as premier is shuffling we needed

The Cabinet Change Albertans Needed But Didn’t Get: Jason Kenney was Prime Minister. Rachel Notley enters.

Hey, it wouldn’t be the first time a coalition has been formed in times of crisis. But one wonders, would he take over the steaming pile of camel dung that Kenney would leave behind?

COVID crisis, no one is to blame but ours

Re. “Albertans Must Take Responsibility,” Letters, September 22

Kudos to Frances Marion for putting things that are happening in perspective. Have we become a society that sits around and waits for the government to tell us how to act or behave? We know what that kind of society is called, right? It’s called socialism.

We have been in this COVID situation for 18 months and have been through one lockdown after another. We know how to protect ourselves, we know how to behave, and we know that vaccines are available at will. However, we hope that the government will tell us what to do. We want our freedoms until there is a little bump in the road, then we need elected officials to tell us what to do next.

We were told Alberta was open for the summer but to get vaccinated and behave accordingly. Obviously, we didn’t do too well and now is it the government’s fault? It’s Kenney’s fault, it’s Hinshaw’s fault, it’s someone other’s fault. I may be a minority, but I appreciate less government intervention in everyday life and the ability to take whatever precautions one feels necessary to protect oneself and others.
