  1. Mike Moffatt is a great guy (and friend whom I admire greatly,) but I have to question both of you on one issue. It’s all well and good to tell people to go West for work, but if you’re an accredited tradesman in London, Ontario, but have two young children and a wife, it’s not easy. Not easy to simply sell your house, lose your friends, drop everything, and plant a family in highly expensive Fort Mac. Maritimers have done this for decades, but we have to think of the human impact that labour mobility places on families.

  2. So if we shut down the oil sands they’ll open up factories in Ontario? The NDP continues to have sensible plans for a progressive future. And even when they’re not trying to they alienate Alberta.
