January XXIXth, MMXV
Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Elbow
Sitting at picture left here, Linda Johnson, MLA is paid a very good salary, plus benefits & bonunes as her riding representative. Knowing that as part of the job she must represent the needs of not just her constituents, but all Albertans, Linda showed me yesterday outside Government House that she just doesn't get it! I asked her point blank about increasing awareness in schools about organ & tissue donations among students & she gave a rather strange & narrow-minded answer, especially when you consider MLAs go on tour during their terms to listen to views from citizens all over the province!
"I only care to listen to the opinions of my constituents."
