Open Letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Red Deer – Mountain View, AB
Recently, the phrase “The Great Reset” has received significant media coverage. On November 20, 2020 you down played discussion relating to the pandemic being used as a socialist reset as nothing more than a conspiracy theory from anxiety driven Conservative MPs.
The World Economic Forum specifically references the “The Great Reset” in these terms: “As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons. Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the Forum’s communities, the Great Reset initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being.”
Canadians who I have spoken with are worried. They are worried about COVID-19 and your government’s response. They are worried that their ability to provide for their families is disappearing. Not disappearing due to a virus, rather due to policies that their own government is enacting.
Before your government sets out on a global quest to end climate change and build a new social contract, Canadians are demanding that issues within our borders be addressed beforehand.
End long-term boil water advisories on all First Nation communities. (61 advisories – Feb 15/20)
Resolve the back log of veteran’s disability pension claims. (45,296 claims - June 30/20)
Work with applicable stakeholders to drastically improve conditions in long-term care facilities.
End transfer of funds to foreign jurisdictions until debt accumulated due to COVID-19 is repaid.
Consult with residents in all provinces to rebuild trust and build unity.
Support Canadian workers who have carried the main burdens of the pandemic.
Canadians are facing significant challenges and are looking for steady leadership as they navigate the numerous uncertainties that the pandemic has brought. On behalf of Canadians, I am urging you to put aside lofty global reset goals until the list of home-grown issues noted above, are fully resolved.
