U.S. President Barak Obama has branded him a corporate welfare bum --- town gossips claim he is a trillionaire --- the Old Timer lives in subsidized housing and spends his days dumpster diving

17-Oct-06 -

According to Don Braid in today's Herald, Alberta Tories are plenty mad at Calgary Mayor Dave Bronconnier for even raising the issue of giving local governments more revenues (they are presently limited to property taxes NOT collected for education). The Tories are frightened to death of the anal-retentive control-freak-ridden provincial bureaucracy who, like all Canadian bureaucracies, boss the politicians they're supposed to serve. See our story of July 11. Each year the provincial bureaucrats loot eight billion dollars out of Calgary - only return four billion (the provincial bureaucracy sucks $28,000,000 out of the Pincher Creek gas fields - the Town of Pincher Creek gets not a penny - see our story of October 1, 2004). Bronconnier has talked Calgary city council into divvying up $500,000 for a publicity and public meeting blitz aimed at the citizens of Calgary.

Bronconnier should be spending the $500,000 getting other local leaders behind him. He could be successful enough to take over the Albert Liberal Party - change it's name - defeat the Tories on what Jane Jacobs in Dark Age Ahead has called "Dumbed Down Taxes ".
