Dear Adriana:

As I reach the Xth anniversary of this blog & my XXVth (25th) & final silver anniversary appearance at the Lt. Governor's New Year's Day Levee at Government House, I was struck once again by how good the food quality is there. We need to once again have that quality, the very best in food quality for students in school cafeterias as well as strong hot breakfast & lunch programs for less fortunate students so they can continue to learn strongly/effectively.

Lois Mitchell Is Awesome,

Rory

Twelve, Fourteen, Sixteen, Eighteen With An Assist On Seventeen!

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., 15902-100A Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5P 0L8

November VIth, MMXIX

Hon. Adriana LaGrange, MLA, Minister of Education, United Conservative, Red Deer-North

Dear Adriana:

Seventeenth Premier Rachel Notley-Arab, MLA, New Democratic, Edmonton-Strathcona (& current Leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Official Opposition) is right to call out Eighteenth Hon. Premier Jason Kenney, PC, MLA, United Conservative, Calgary-Lougheed in committee today over his use of charter jets at taxpayers expense! The entire process of the corrupt use of the government planes was shut down by Sixteenth Hon. Premier Jim Prentice, PC, Progressive Conservative when he rightly ordered the government fleet of planes sold to cover off the corruption of the late Twelfth Premier Ralph Klein, Progressive Conservative who would fly on extra planes alone or with staff who smoked so he could light up at taxpayers expense on his world wide travels. As well as the corruption of Fourteenth Premier Alison Redford, Progressive Conservative who illegally used the planes to fly her daughter around at taxpayers expense.

Premier Prentice in retirement died ironically in a privately chartered jet in the British Columbia woods & had to be identified by his teeth (may the Lord (or the faith leader of your choice) bless & keep him for all eternity) But he & his friends paid for their own passage. This just shows that Premier Kenney doesn't care about respecting the legacy of his fellow Alberta Premiers & especially fellow Right Hon. Steve Harper, PC, Conservative cabinet minister Prentice. Cutting the budget of the firefighters who drop in rapidly off of helicopters (which fly like planes) to attend to fires as a result of wildfires or the crash that killed Jim (the David Suzuki lover) is an absolutely disgraceful move by Jason & his Finance Minister Hon. Travis Toews, MLA, United Conservative, Grande Prairie-Wapiti. Jason should pay for the airfares of all the fellow Premiers to Saskatchewan $ 4 $ out of his own pocket! How is flying Premiers to a province outside of Alberta the financial responsibility of Albertans in these tough economic times?!

Odd Numbered Premiers Ed Stelmach, Progressive Conservative (Thirteenth), Hon. Judge Premier Dave Hancock, Progressive Conservative (Fifteenth), & Mrs. Notley-Arab Are All Looking Pretty Good In Comparison Right Now Aren't They?!,

Hon. Adriana LaGrange, MLA, Minister of Education, United Conservative, Red Deer-North

Dear Adriana:

It seems appropriate my title today on this 41st day of the Canadian Election & with my 41st straight day putting up a blog post to represent the late Former 41st United States President George Herbert Walker Bush & his son the Former 43rd United States President George Walker Bush in this the death throes of the 43rd Federal Election of The Dominion Of Canada. Family relationships can at times be rather strained but the II George's seemed pretty okay with 1 another & George Walker (Ellen Degeneres-de Rossi's best friend) painted the top of these two paintings to showcase that special relationship with his dad. So I strongly encourage families to go to Elections Canada voting stations today, vote, & take their children so they that they are all together to witness democracy in action!

P.S.: Of & for the record, Mrs. Ellen Degeneres-de Rossi is a registered national Democratic Party member with California residency. So this is a nice bipartisanship friendship with George Walker!

Polling "Station"ary

October XXth, MMXIX

Hon. Adriana LaGrange, MLA, Minister of Education, United Conservative, Red Deer-North

Dear Adriana:

At polling stations tomorrow, Elections Canada employees, observers, & the voting public must make sure that the entrances & exits for voting are easy to access. Especially for disabled voters with mobility issues & also devices such as walkers, scooters, wheelchairs, etc. Once in the polling station, voters once they have established proper identification & received their ballot with the initials of the Deputy Returning Officer (DRO) on it, must make sure it is in good shape & not tampered with once they get behind the polling booth to vote. So quality polling stationary. As well, the writing utensil, pencils for Elections Canada must be constantly kept sharp throughout the voting day. And resharpened &/or replaced as necessary to ensure an absolutely clean & totally fair vote!

Bring Proper Identification & Your Voter Card To Smooth The Voting Process Along,

Rory

"The Eye Of The Tiger!"

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

October XIXth, MMXIX

Hon. Adriana LaGrange, MLA, Minister of Education, United Conservative, Red Deer-North

Dear Adriana:

In the "campaign" to get used sporting equipment to youth & families who cannot afford it, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation is on the right track. The Oilers could make Semenko IIIrd jerseys with Dave's image on them & "Dave's Drive" logo IIIrd jerseys as well for sale as they could be used to raise funds as well. They call it "Dave's Drive" in memory of the legend number #27 Dave Semenko whose skill in the fighting & bodychecking arena of hockey was just as valuable as any scoring player in helping the team win multiple Stanley Cups. It really is just an offshoot of the exact same idea of the old "Tiger Goldstick Fan Club." (Tiger would have been quite pleased to have Dave's name succeed him as its all about the kids first) with the assistance of the great John Short (over 80 & still writing awesome sports columns) collected used sporting goods. I as a a child got to help pick these items up & take them to Tiger's Depot for distribution. I believe this was at the old CFRN Television Broadcast Studios (now CTV Edmonton) Plus I got to meet many of these great kids at Edmonton Trappers Baseball Games in Tiger's Club Box.

So In This Election "Campaign" Season Please Support "Dave's Drive",

Rory

The Poll Position

October XVIIIth, MMXIX

Hon. Adriana LaGrange, MLA, Minister of Education, United Conservative, Red Deer-North

Dear Adriana:

Polls like anything else in elections & in betwixt them are fluid. Maybe they are a "snapshot in time", & maybe they are indeed accurate. But you have to allow for the fact that people surveyed will lie to call centre employees doing the surveys. Or they might change their vote in the polling station and vote another option or spoil &/or reject their ballot.

Poll This Poll That,

A Clarification

October XVIIth, MMXIX

Hon. Adriana LaGrange, MLA, Minister of Education, United Conservative, Red Deer-North

Dear Adriana:

Former Edmonton-Strathcona Green Party Of/De Canada Michael Kalamanovitch has indeed ceased campaigning early. But the votes cast for him are not "null & void" like people suggest. As Mike mentioned on 630 Ched Radio's "The Ryan Jespersen Show" this morning, he hasn't actually filed his withdrawal papers (they were due Sep. XXXth, MMXIX) & is just telling people to vote for the New Democratic Party Of/De Canada Heather McPherson instead. So folks who voted in the Advance Polls for him or on Special Ballot still will have their votes counted. It does go to show that the Green Party will quit early on you. Even their leader Elizabeth May (quite often drunk off her ass in public & refusing to get treatment) has spent 2/3rd of the election in her own riding as she isn't really gaining any traction. Thus proving that this is a party that should never form the federal government! Plus this whack job was on the Walterdale Bridge disrupting people's lives & traffic when he should have been at work running his shitty Earth's General Store! Good riddance freak! As for Greta Thunberg I have Asperger's Syndrome like her so I understand her autistic mindset but at least I can answer questions put to me, she's a fraud as she can't answer questions. All she does is read prepared statements written for her. Send her packing with a 1 way ticket back to Stockholm & a lifetime ban from Alberta! She's not welcome as far as I'm concerned we need our energy resources!

Booger Green & No Follow Through,

Rory
