Roger Gibbins On Hiding Our Prosperity

In the Calgary Herald, the critics have charged Klein's cash-back scheme with being short-sighted (an opinion I share).

But Roger Gibbins thinks that we shouldn't put our prosperity on display, lest we make other provinces jealous.

"This is the worst direction we could take with our external relations with the
rest of the country," said Roger Gibbins, president of the Canada West
Foundation, a Calgary think-tank. "It does create a larger target on the Alberta
surplus."
For the past few weeks, Klein has been fending off perceived
attempts by Ontario and the federal government to nab some of Alberta's resource
riches.
This latest policy decision sees Alberta "thumb its nose at the rest
of the country," Gibbins said.


Don't buy that car, because a theif may become jealous and want to steal it.

This is silly reasoning on the part of Mr. Gibbins.
