Wood PC nomination campaign run with decency and integrity

I wish to congratulate Mr. Jim Wood and his supporters for their valiant efforts in the recent PC nomination campaign.

Dear Editor,

I wish to congratulate Mr. Jim Wood and his supporters for their valiant efforts in the recent PC nomination campaign.

Your consistent respect for democratic principles stands in stark contrast to the equally consistent efforts by Jim Prentice to destroy them. And in spite of Prentice and two other cabinet ministers parading around the riding with your opponent while ignoring you in a blatant attempt to influence the local PC membership, you neither fell to complaining or self-pity and pressed on against all odds.

Mr. Wood, you and your supporters can hold your heads high. You chose the high road. For that, I and my Wildrose team applaud you and thank you for holding up our shared historical conservative values of decency and integrity.

Don MacIntyre,

Sylvan Lake
