If I had a Christmas wish for you

Ron Orr is the MLA for Lacombe-Ponoka

By Ron Orr, MLA Lacombe-Ponoka

Lacombe-Ponoka folk, If I had a wish for you this Christmas, what would it be?


I would relieve your fears and anxieties, and bring you instead hope for the future, to live in safe communities with a just criminal justice system.

I would bring you a world where we would not be afraid to speak about our ideals, without fear of judgement or retaliation.

I would give you the freedom to practice your religion of choice, whatever that is, without intimidation, or persecution.

I would bring all Albertans a political party with integrity and honesty, and a government we could trust.

I would throw in a few gift cards of mutual consultation and real listening!

I would give Albertans jobs and the opportunity to earn enough to take care of themselves and their families.

I would make Alberta business friendly, especially for small and family owned businesses.

I would want to renew the spirit of innovation and creative discovery that makes Alberta vibrant.

I would seek to implement real environmental innovation and stewardship, not just tax grabs.

I would bring you a functioning health care system, where all lives in Alberta matter regardless where you live.

I would bring you education choice, so you could choose what is suitable for you and your children.

I would make sure our education system is one of the best in the world.

I would promote our oil and gas industry as the best in the world, to power our economy and to bring back Alberta prosperity.

And finally, I would bring you pipelines of joy! From the east, west and from the south!

On behalf of my wife, Edmonton and constituency staff and myself, we wish you all a joyous Christmas and jopeful New Year.

I can be reached at my constituency office, 101, 4892–46 St. Lacombe, AB or by email Lacombe.ponoka@assembly.ab.ca or 403-782-7725.
