Haught vs. Naught #3

"When you're hot, you're hot. When you're not, you're not." - Jerry "Smoky" Reed.

Naught - Bob Rae. Warren Kinsella calls on Bob and everyone else who uses "nazism" comparisons as a failed debating tool. Get on your knees, Bob, and apologize.

Haught - Rona Ambrose. While she has both carefully and uncarefully balanced Canada's commitment to Kyoto with the party's line and her own views, she's ignoring the crap, chairing the whatever environmental conference, env lobbyists galore ask for her head, and she'll continue to move in the right direction.

Haught - Paul Himan. Who? MLA and leader of the Alberta Alliance Party (AAP) for calling on the gov't to look at an APP (Alberta Pension Plan). That's AAP for the APP. Anyway, it's a great idea, 'cause the CPP is a joke of a "fund". I bought this up with Stockwell Day 9 years ago at a Reform Youth Convention when he was provincial treasurer and he seemed very open to the idea. Yeah, well, it needs to be talked about again and again.

Naught - Denis Herard. Advanced Education Minister. This stupid bill will actually end tuition increase caps to allow bloated university bureaucracies. It was brought up in 2003 and killed. I believe in affordable and accessable education. Our parents sure had cheap tuition. At the start, I did too, but then... then it got nuts. When I was done, it had doubled. That's a quadradic increase! Remember when Ralph did all the cuts in the 90's? Guess who decided to give themselves big wage increases? It was the university big wigs. Great. Now they can go even more nuts.

That's it for now. Going to watch the Oilers win game 4.

Am liking your haught vs. naught lists. Nice. I also wholly agree with your last point. Tuition costs are crazy.
