Fair enough. I absolutely agree. No one I knew was opposed to them.
My problem is that they want parents told - teachers/schools have no desire to tell parents for any other extra-curricular participation so why this?

Actually my point was that Alberta is not a bible belt as a whole.

If you are following Global's coverage - Dave E just showed the 4 central AB ridings = Bible Belt but that doesn't equal Conservative votes (ie religion-based)

BC’s looking blue, except on the coast. Mostly orange. Though, Hedy Fry, Lib., got in in Vancouver centre for the umpteenth time. She’s alright. Wilson Raybould won her independent seat in Vancouver-Granville, East Van stayed NDP

That seems to be the impression of Alberta across Canada, much like BC being full of hippie stoners (only this far west :) ), is that AB is Canada’s Bible Belt province. There’s a creationist museum not far from Edmonton, too, that draws tourists continuously (I’ve been on the steam-train ride)...adds to that reputation.

It's further south than Red Deer. Not Edmonton area.

And it really didn't take Trudeau long to show a lack of class and acknowledgement after starting this term.
Global News is really ripping into him for his tone.

And it didn't take long for Scheer to stoke division. I'm wondering why he is so fixated.

Then there's the three party leaders speaking at the same time rather than taking turns as is the tradition. That doesn't bode well for how they'll do in the House.

Best thing about this election is that Bernier tanked. Phew. Glad he was more bark than bite. Second best thing is that the balance of power in the Liberal minority shifts things leftward. No orange wave this time, but Singh made a strong impression.

All is normal the gods have divided and separated the people ... and most of the people take this as not divine but an icon of a broken populace!

The Gods win and chaos progresses ...

One interesting local note:The NDP in London-Fanshawe saw a passing of the torch between generations as Lindsay Mathyssen held on to the riding, succeeding her mother Irene who has held it through several elections. It's an NDP stronghold and the Mathyssens are a big part of that. While I am not in that riding, I've met Irene once and used to know many of her volunteers through the UU fellowship.

My relatives generally. The huge seniors complex of several, that my grandma lived in. Run by a conservative Christian church. (Which is actually a good thing itself.)
WEll you are wrong. The most Bible Beltish areas in Alberta tend to be in the south. Edmonton is arguably the most progressive part of the province as a whole.

The only problem with GSA's is Kenney
That is an overstatement. I know of many who had issues in the GP area (ok most of them were conservative pastors). THere were a lot of people feeding Kenney on that issue.

Kenney-Tic issue? It'll move ... as part of idealistic gas loss ... laws?

Do you know how much ionized gas escapes the sun each day in emmanation? That is as electrons, protons and Nu*Drons ... neutered by connection when rye! Naked Truth as sometimes seen in the mire ... depends on the fall of how the cast is formed ...

Adequate for mythical formation ...
