An Infamous Anniversary

It is good to remember the bad times. As a result, we cherish the good ones, and are more diligent to protect them.

Mention those infamous three letters in Alberta, and the bad memories start flooding back.

Je me souviens

Yeah, what he said. I bloody well remember too.

It wasn't just oil people who got hurt, my father lost his landscaping company to PET and the NEP. It's amazing how many unemployed oil executives are willing to do their own landscaping, likewise with 1\2 empty apartment buildings, they just don't place that high a priority on landscaping as they once did. Dad lost his savings, the business, and then the house, and I lost my job, my home, and my inheritence.

I don't forget.

That's a heart-breaking anecdote.

Seeing the progressive ruination of my family's farm is the only comparable reference point that I have.
