Reality Check: Redford PCs' Campaign Of Fear
Despite Redford's claim that she does not want this to be a campaign about fear (Edmonton, Sunday, March 26, 2012), the Redford PCs are moving full-steam ahead with misinformation campaigns to scare voters into supporting their dynasty. Most recently, the Redford PCs are telling voters that any citizen initiative will cause harm to their communities

Not only do the Redford PCs think they can spend Albertans money better than Albertans themselves, they also think that if you hold any view contrary to theirs, that you are a bigot and regressive. (http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews/straighttalk/archives/2012/04/20120410-072322.html) On Monday, Tom Olson, advisor to the Redford PC campaign and party spokesperson, said Wildrose is "frightening." "You reach out and embrace the Wildrose, there's thorns and there will be a bloodletting. That's what will happen if there's a Wildrose government elected," says Olsen. (http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews/straighttalk/archives/2012/04/20120410-072322.html) Redford echoed these "fear-type" statements while at an all-candidates debate at Mount Royal University on Monday afternoon. This is a far cry from what she said on the first day of the campaign: "I don't want this campaign to be about fear, I want this to be a campaign about hope." - Alison Redford, Edmonton, Sunday, March 26, 2012 Redford is afraid of letting the people have a voice because she knows they don't support her plans for higher spending, higher taxes, and lining politicians' pockets with taxpayer dollars. Wildrose stands for free enterprise, less government, increased personal freedom, and democracy.
