I see there are plenty of political complaints in the Vox Populi. Being a contrarian, I’m amused by the eternal moaning about K-Country passes.
A yearly pass is $90 and a day pass is $15. Apparently, this is restrictive to some and offensive to others. Yet if you have to pay $20 to park at Quarry Lake for four hours, or $83 a month to park in downtown Canmore, no one says boo.
Why the faux outrage over K-country passes when there’s no public complaining about all the restrictive costs being applied by the Town of Banff, Town of Canmore and Banff National Park? It’s all about users paying the costs for maintenance and upkeep, isn’t it?
Then there’s the, ‘oh, we can’t possibly allow private business to deliver something so important as healthcare’ crowd, but there are no demands to stop private business from delivering something so important as food, clothing, transportation, housing, dumb phones or virtually anything else people rely on.
Every election, politicians promise billions to fix healthcare, and the only thing that changes are the costs of the promises. It amazes me in a community where so many people are so willing to think outside the box and consider alternative healthcare solutions for themselves, that there’s so much resistance to considering alternative healthcare solutions which might work for everyone.
Preachers looking for sinners.
