Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Congrats on your new Parliamentary Secretary of Education Annie McKitrick, MLA, B. Sc. M. Ed., New Democratic, Sherwood Park. Hopefully she'll be a great asset to you in helping get proper funding to students & classrooms directly. As the mother of two adopted children, she can be very good on encouraging adoption of children to good families who might not otherwise be able to have their own children. Thus giving them a chance to be educated in Alberta classrooms with a solid family foundation.

Broadway,

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

As my mom, the world's greatest teacher ever the late Mrs. June C. Koopmans, B. Ed. reminds us from upstairs: in today's 24/7 fast paced world we need here at Executive Dissertations to remind folks driving by, entering, exiting, & leaving polling stations to have a little extra patience. An election worker may be in the bathroom or attending to a matter outside the voting area so you may have to wait a bit. Plus many polling stations are in & around schools. As a result @VisionZeroYEG reminds voters to be patient & adhere to all speed limits, especially with students coming in & out of school, & parents not just there to vote, they are going to be there to drop off or pick up their kids.

Nenshi Versus Smith

October XVth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Here in Cowtown it sure is funny to watch the whining sissy/fairy/nancy boy Mayor Naheed Nenshi (who still has his mommy cook for him every night) complain that his main competitor Bill Smith has "too much money." Naheed didn't complain when he was at the top of the money heap the last two mayoral election cycles & all he has done is screw up Calgary this last term. His deadbeat progressive ideas are leading to a brain drain in both the corporate & union sectors. Billy is more organized, & the big money is behind him because he is running the kind of quality election campaign that Naheed used to. Candidate Nenshi is just sad that if he loses his mayor's chair, he'll lose any chance to springboard into the Alberta Party as a Calgary candidate & eventually seizing the leadership away from Greg Clark, MLA, Alberta Party, Calgary-Elbow who will never be Premier as long as he represents Alison Redfjord's old riding!

Naheed Is Rather Flighty Have You Noticed That Like An "Angry Bird" In Flight & Also How Violent He Gets In The Face As He Tears Up If You Disagree With Him On Anything Just Like Many Left Wing Progressives: He Looks Like He Is Gonna Take A Dump In His Pants With His Psychotic Eyeballs Popping Out Of His Head & The Biting of His Lower Lip (I Won't Tell Him Trump Is Coming To Calgary Next Week),

Edmonton Public Schools Ward C Trustee & Candidate Orville Chubb has really "gone to the dogs" & I approve especially as he & his gorgeous bride Trudy named their two dogs Fynnley & Rory (although I might be a little biased on the latter pooch's name).

An Inclusive Exclusive

October XIIIth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Mayor Don Iveson & other candidates are constantly talking about building a more "inclusive" city that is for all Edmontonians. So why don't they commit to holding at least I (1) City Council Meeting in each of the city's XII (12) wards during the next council term & thus allowing Edmontonians to see their council in action & up close? Ward 6 doesn't need any special arrangements because that is where City Hall is but the other 11 wards have City owned facilities such as recreation centres where meetings could be held in the arena. Or perhaps in a church/mosque/temple or even a community hall to make students & the their families feel truly part of the democratic process.

I wish I could take credit for this process of thought/idea but it was suggested to me by a gentleman & his husband who were attending the IIIrd Mayoral Forum with their really cute surrogate delivered little girl. A real Bob Ligertwood "sweetie" to be sure: she was so precocious when running around at the back of the room at the coffee break & I almost got run down by her that she had to just randomly tell me that she was "really pretty" & I most vociferously agreed with her! And I told her dads that & we got to talking & they gave me this idea & it would have been my question if my ticket number had called. The two gents & their girl (a very nice family I must say) told me they were Ward 10 residents & just couldn't get to City Hall very easily & would love it if "City Hall came to them."

Dear Dave:

We have the Sturgeon River-Parkland federal byelection on to replace the very lovely & bright & talented former MP, Hon. Rona Ambrose, PC, Conservative. Yes this can cause voter confusion what with the civic election on October XVIth. But it is very important for voters to vote in both as the federal writ is on October XXIIIrd with Advance Polls starting tomorrow. What a pity Rona quit but I can understand how she didn't want as the Ex-Interim Tory Leader to overshadow the new leader, the Hon. Andrew Scheer, PC, MP, Conservative, Regina-Qu-Appelle. Here in "The Grove" the feeling is the Tories will easily hold this riding.

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

As a person with Asperger's Syndrome or "high-functioning" autism, I see all colours of the colour spectrum like many autistics. So I can truly appreciate Ward 4 Edmonton City Council Candidate Wade Izzard & his efforts to court the votes of autistic adults & their families by having campaign literature printed on multiple colour choices in a rainbow fashion. As I'm constantly told I am dumb & stupid almost every day & mocked openly to my face because I can sometimes relate better to colours before I can relate to people & their faces (& as it is so frequent I am starting to believe that it is true in my case), I respect that Winnipeg, Manitoba proudly born on the banks of the Assiniboia River Wade Izzard (just like his late cousin Academy Award (TM) Winner Miss Deanna Durbin) is doing this campaign flyer style in order to make it less scary for autistic people like me to participate in this election & the learning of the democratic process. I wish him well as he hands these multi-coloured brochures out on the doors!

Dear Dave:

I can be truly thankful that in MMX when I ran against Candidate Cheryl Johner for Ward A Edmonton Public Schools Trustee that she was ever so classy. Now running for a IIIrd term in order to replace herself, Cheryl waxes on about how proud she is at being mom to her kids in addition to serving as the trustee for the area. Wanting parents who are excited about education is smart for the decision-making process of the board & thus decisions are made that are really helpful for the students.

Dear Dave:

It makes me wonder what the Alberta Legislative Assembly does sometimes. Now listen & sing once again with me a strange duet. The powerful suggestion I give to you grows stronger yet. Yet it makes sense, why is there not an Alberta Assembly Committee of the Whole led by the pages on youth issues? I mean they are right there on the floor advising you during sessions whilst also going to school. Who better to advise MLAs on youth matters than youth themselves? This would seem rather obvious to me & also rather Don Juan Triumphant in its simplicity as it wouldn't cost the Province a dime as the pages are already on their affixed salaries. Of course The Phantom's salary has not been paid, which Finance Minister Joe Ceci is familiar with by running such high deficits that NDP MLAs are leaving the government caucus.

Dear Dave:

I agree with the Peter C. Goldring axiom that wooden stakes are far superior to metal frames for standardized campaign signs. Goldilocks had it right on this point as wooden stakes hold better when hammered into the ground, especially in cold fall or frozen ground winter/spring conditions. Although I must also admit the metal staked signs are far easier to push into the ground.

Having run VI (6) times myself (VI times too many I might add), I know the absolute importance of declaring every donation. Whether from a plug mike nickel to a "donation-in-kind", candidates should declare all donor names. Even those who want to be anonymous. All six of my returns were thoroughly reviewed & deemed absolutely impeccable. The importance of having a proper balance sheet will show whether a candidate(s) possess some of the financial acumen needed to be in office & work on budgetary matters!

October Vth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

I must admit that my great admiration for Karen Mcpherson, MLA, Independent, Calgary-Mackay-Nosehill is a solid performer. Many of the New Democratic cabinet & caucus members are not. But you, Rachel, Sarah, Brian, Deron, Stephanie McLean and a few others are very effective. I did dash a note off to Karen once at her constituency office saying that I thought it was a shame that she wasn't in Her Majesty's Government's New Democratic cabinet. Her leaving to sit "Indy" status is certainly a great loss to her now former New Democratic colleagues including yourself.

My recommendation to Karen would that she try & reboot up the old federal PC/DRC coalition for the 19-22.75 remaining months of the life of this Alberta Legislative Assembly until the next provincial writ. So she sits still as an Independent but combines office and research budgets with Rick Fraser, MLA, Independent, Calgary-South East, Richard Starke, MLA, Progressive Conservative, Vermilion-Lloydminster, Greg Clark, MLA, Alberta Party, Calgary-Elbow, & David Swann, Liberal, Calgary Mountain View. In this way they can be recognized as an "official" coalition & thus would not need any extra funding. This would be a very good combined group to keep all sides of the Assembly accountable & none of the five members would be beholden to a party vote.

A Rather Independent Streak,

D. In MDCCCLXVI (1866), Inventor J. Osterhoudt patents the tin can with key opener.

E. XXVIIIth U.S. President Thomas Woodrow Wilson, Democratic-New Jersey has a stroke in MCMXIX (1919) that leaves him partly paralyzed. The XXXth Ist Lady Edith Bolling Galt Wilson, Democratic-New Jersey assumed some presidential duties when really XXVIIIth U.S. Vice-President Thomas Riley Marshall, Democratic-Indiana (who was elected) should have been given some "acting" presidential powers. Interestingly enough, Mr. Marshall was the only U.S. VP to ever have an assassination plot planned against him outright but not carried out.

I. Pictured above is the Pierre Laporte Bridge in Canada in Quebec City. At 1,041 metres or 3,415 feet it is the longest span suspension bridge in the nation.

II. The Thousand Islands Suspension & Truss Bridge over the Saint Lawrence River is 8.5 miles or 13.7 kilometres in length.

III. The old Walterdale Bridge here in Edmonton is 214.2 metres in length or 703 feet.

Up here in Ward 4 last night at the John D. Bracco Junior High School, there were no real knockout punches by any of the XII (12) candidates running in the Ward 4 forum. All of them orated their positions quite well and none of them stumbled over any answers. The moderator & the City of Edmonton web & in person staff did very well at keeping the proceedings tight enough to allow for an early intermission. This allowed Ward 4 residents to have a longer time frame with which to interact personally with the candidates. Although it was pretty poor that the ventilator fans were not put on in the gymnasium last night as the room was hot!

Note: Special mention of Wade Izzard being proud that he has more Twitter followers than any other candidates (including Mayor Iveson) should be mentioned. This is a great accomplishment & Wade mentioning it without bragging about it at the #Ward4Forum shows great maturity for a potential council member!

So our family can truly say that we had & fave great respect for Rev. Dr. Mainse & the Christian Ministry broadcast empire he founded of faith & being one with Christ. He will be truly missed! The nice thing about it is the fact that mom can show Dave around in Heaven!

Dear Dave:

The way I figure things, it would be smarter for the newly Independent Honourable Gentleman IV Calgary-Southeast to sit under his old banner of Progressive Conservative. Thus Rick Fraser would join the Honourable Gentleman IV Vermilion-Lloydminster, Dr. Richard Starke, DVM in a two man Progressive Conservative caucus, so giving them the budget for two representatives of the people. Then Rachel may direct Her Majesty's New Democratic caucus to give them "official" recognition & the budget for 4 MLAs. This would clearly serve Rick's plan in his move to be a people person by becoming Independent status. Plus it would keep the United Airlines Conservative Party (UACP) somewhat divided during their leadership race.

September XXth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

It behooves me to remind readers of the idiocy of The Right Honorable Gentleman IV Papineau, Justin Trudeau, B. A., B. Ed., PC, MP, Liberal & The Honourable Gentleman IV Toronto-Centre, Bill Morneau, B. A., MBA., M. Sci., PC, MP, Liberal. These two cabinet members should take a lesson in class from The Honourable Gentleman IV Malpeque, Wayne Easter, PC, MP, Liberal, their caucus colleague & a highly respected former Liberal cabinet minister. Wayne shows that you can always count on a Prince Edward Islander for decency & common sense. He is against the proposed tax changes on family trusts & wealth transfers to family members that will hurt small businesses, &/or has concerns with them. Thus causing many of them to shut down, which will narrow Billy & Justin's tax revenue base even more. Thus leaving us even less money to pay for the Syrian refugees & illegals crossing through to the welfare state that is Quebec.

Furthermore, when Billy was in diapers & Justin hadn't even been born (or was playing in his crib at 24 Sussex Drive), some of these business tax code changes to allow the transfer of monies from family members in an income trust format were created by the Liberal administrations of Prime Ministers Louis St.-Laurent, Lester "Mike" Pearson, & yes the current PM's late father Pierre Trudeau (some even before these time periods.) So they are not completely a creation of the "evil" menace of the Conservative Party that J. T. & Billy seem to want to make younger generations of Canadians to believe. If the current Prime Minister & the current Minister Of Finance for Her Majesty's Government insist upon making these tax code changes, all they are doing is rolling back the legacy & memory of Canada's XVth (15th) Prime Minister, The Right Honourable Joseph Philippe Pierre Yves Elliot Trudeau, CC, PC, C.H., M.A., Q.C., LL.L, LL.D, F.R.S.C., Liberal, Mount Royal.

Dear Dave:

Due to a slight medical complication, I myself am not able to run in the MMXVII Civic Election after all, that does not stop me from wishing a great campaign to all candidates running for municipal/county office for this coming Monday, October XVIth, MMXVII. While I am clearly disappointed, my health has to come first, its ever so annoying though as it took me over VI (6) hours in the hot sun a few weeks ago to collect my signatures.

EPL PD DAY

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., Beverly Crest Abbotsfield-Penny McKee Public Library Terminal #IX, Edmonton, Alberta

September XVth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

I have to admit, closing Edmonton Public Library (EPL) Branches on a weekday is a bit annoying. But I also have to admit, giving EPL library staff a chance to network, meet staff from other branch locations, & increase their contact network is rather sound policy. Making it a PD DAY, lets them be just like students & this is very smart as they are learning anew on ways to enhance "the library experience" for EPL customers even more!

September XIVth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

In this upcoming set of Municipal elections, the integrity of the vote must be preserved. Sure electronic voting can be good for say a leadership campaign, but there is absolutely no substitute for a paper ballot. I myself am voting by Special Ballot and mailing the ballot in so I know that it goes right to the Elections office. Still others will vote in the Advance Poll & others on Election Day itself. Paper is superior to the computer here as it is irrefutable evidence that the voter(s) got to choose whomever they truly wanted to elect for the upcoming City/County Council term.

Elect This,

Solid campaign performer & social activist/artist & Ward 8 City of Edmonton Council Candidate Heather Workman is "working for the hu"man" race" by trying to route out prostitution & the societal ills that come with it such as drug use.
