Alberta could fix their problems to a large extent if they would follow Brad Wall's way with a 6% PST. No PST these days is insane!

Hi Rod, thanks for taking a couple of moments to sign your book for me yesterday......I was there on Tuesday and saw you but didn't have the book with me, so was hoping to catch you on Wednesday and I did. Didn't mean to interrupt or rush the interviews you were doing when I got to your table. So thanks again.

P.S. I'm also the one that got the "Fylin" Hawaiian autograph from Chad Owens as indicated in your comment section from Tuesday.

Just because Chris Jones puts on a suit it doesn't turn him into classy.
