As mentioned a few days ago, CBC commentator Rex Murphy was in town today to host an episode of CBC's 'Cross Country Check Up' at Mac Island. Sadly, I missed it due to work. However, I did find a National Post column that Murphy penned yesterday about his upcoming visit. Well said Rex. Sadly, the debate has been so skewed by environmental nut cases out there that it has been impossible to anyone to give an alternative perspective on things without being accused of being in the pocket of so-called "Big Oil". Forgotten in the drone of Fort McMurray bashing is that this community is one of the highest giving communities in Canada for organizations such as the United Way, among others.
Yes, bash us you lefty nut jobs. But keep in mind the wealth created by this region helps pay for a lot of the fanciful, socialist candyland crap you advocate for. But what do I know? I'm just in the pocket of "Big Oil." Um, hello, environmentals, if I was in the pocket of "Big Oil", trust me, I wouldn't be living in Thickwood (although it is a nice part of town). Heck, I'd have a big place up in Timberlea or on Draper Road instead. Anyhow, well said Rex. We do hope you enjoyed your visit. Come back any time.
