We have a definite problem in Manitoba. It pervades our whole society but it’s most noticeable and identifiable in our current provincial government.
Currently, the NDP party is undergoing a leadership race. Premier Greg Selinger is defending his title, Theresa Oswald and Steve Ashton are challenging. Our problem is not that Selinger, Oswald and Ashton aren’t fairly nice and competent people. That’s not the problem. I know all three fairly well and the problem isn’t that they aren’t nice enough people, the problem is they are socialists. Myself, and many others, have been highly criticized for calling NDP politicians socialists. For some strange reason, it’s considered an insult but it isn’t. It’s a fact. Socialism, wherever you find it in its many forms, pervades Manitoba. It’s in every aspect of our lives. It certainly has a choke hold on education and health care.
