True to their word, farmers and ranchers and their urban and suburban allies are continuing their rallies and townhalls across the province against Bill 6.
And on Friday morning, I caught up with a rally that started in Stony Plain and ended up in Spruce Grove. Farmers and ranchers and their supporters were out before the sun fully up, in the falling snow, with their signs and their petitions in front of NDP MLA Erin Babcock's office. She's the MLA for Stony Plain.
Ms. Babcock wasn’t there. But I've been to enough of these things to know she wouldn’t give these farmers any answers, anyway.
After this gathering wrapped up, a tractor convoy headed up the road to Spruce Grove to the constituency office of NDP Trevor Horne. He wasn't there either. But like I said before. It’s not like he'd be able to answer any questions. I mean, if Jobs Minister Lori Sigurdson can't, why would I think Trevor Horne could?
He doesn’t even live in his riding. According to his MLA bio, he lives in St. Albert.
Local residents took turns at the microphone while two Horne staffers looked on. (Or chit chatted, looking bored or scared.)
One woman's story was especially heart felt. She told the story of how her neighbours helped her on her farm after her husband died.
That’s the story of so many Alberta families, including my own. It’s a testament to rural Alberta values. Being neighbourly isn't just something you do, it's who we are.
This is something urban elitists like Rachel Notley will never understand.
Rural Alberta doesn’t need big government rules to tell us how to take care of each other.
We already know how.
