Nelson: Here's why fancy lightbulbs won't get the NDP re-elected

3 0 0

Remember those hazy, halcyon days of a far off summer when a nice young man would arrive at your home and show you exactly how to screw in a light bulb courtesy of the Alberta government?

Well, just like temperatures above freezing here in Calgary, those merry times appear a long way off today.

Nope, it’s extremely cold out there in our city in more ways than one as the latest employment numbers show. Just like those high-efficiency light bulbs we were treated to a few years back, the happy chatter about emerging green shoots of an economic recovery are little more than some vague memory.

Now it seems the best that can be done to mitigate this sad state of affairs is to try to confuse the populace through the use of increasingly politicized language courtesy of those Edmonton civil servants, who should simply pass along up-to-date statistics rather than engaging in a poor attempt to camouflage how rotten the job market is in our city and the rest of Alberta.

But no matter how much........
