LETTER: Kenney should find better things to do

Editor: Dear Mr. Kenney, Please, please appoint me to run your next inquiry, committee or report. I've got it all down. I promise I won't finish it on time. My best estimate would be a runover of a year or two. I promise I'll only need a million

Editor:

Dear Mr. Kenney,

Please, please appoint me to run your next inquiry, committee or report. I've got it all down.

I promise I won't finish it on time. My best estimate would be a run over of a year or two.

I promise I'll only need a million dollars to finish it off, no more.

I promise I won't consult with any Albertans and/or any other vested persons.

I promise I will, however, consult with an accounting firm if I have concerns about people's health or welfare.

I promise to listen and take the advice of specific women, only if they hail from either side of our borders.

I promise to bare my teeth and sit by your side if anyone mentions Mr. Trudeau or that darn federal government.

And I understand fully why you didn't attend that "gabfest" overseas. Your appointed one – or two – came back with useful observations. He found out that there were other jurisdictions out there with problems just like ours.

But I'm not sure why you have your shirt in such a knot over the police. A study recently stated you would get better outcomes if there were more police. Was that one of yours?

I suggest instead of throwing zillions of dollars at your provincial police force, you could save zillions of dollars by hiring a few extra RCMP.

I promise I'll fight anyone that doesn't want to keep us drawn down to a common denominator. No more than that, I promise.

After all Mr. Kenney, you've often said that you have better things to do – so do them. Sorry about that – thinking that is.

Marilyn Foxford,
