The President & Mrs. Carter
July XIth, MMXVII
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
While I am clearly not a Democratic supporter (Pres. Richard Nixon the Republican of California was my main man) & I'm very allergic to peanuts, I can put aside my political differences with & I most certainly welcome the XXXIXth (39th) Former President Of The United States Of America James Earl (Jimmy) Carter, Jr., Democratic-Georgia & that very lovely bride of his Mrs. Rosalynn Carter here. The XCII (92) year old Former Chief Executive & the XLIst (41st) Former Ist Lady give a valued high profile presence to the Habitat For Humanity build in southeast Edmonton (as well as Winnipeg), which is great as owning a home should never really be out of reach for any students & their families no matter their socio-economic circumstances. I'm glad that the Secret Service detail is providing such excellent security. I'm also glad that I toured Delton Cabinets this past Saturday (Delton donating kitchen cabinets for the Habitat homes) & had Hotdogs with Hallsy. Bryan Hall & the Delton team along with local media like 630AM Ched Radio are doing a stellar job in promoting this!

P.S.: Pres. Carter created the US of A Department of Education. It sure seems strange that Canada has no federal Education Minister & Department with federal oversight especially as we have a federal Health Minister despite the fact that health & education are both provincial jurisdiction. Maybe PM Justin Trudeau, B. A., B. Ed., PC, MP, Liberal, Papineau could serve as Canada's Ist Education Minister as he's a teacher by trade & then donate the cabinet salary to an inner city Ottawa school hot lunch program since he was born there!
