HEADLINE: STAR'S VIEW IS SIMPLISTIC
Re 11 per cent solution (editorial, March 14).
I am continually amused by The Star's frustration at Alberta's unwillingness to adopt the economically destructive politics of envy, entitlement and class warfare it promotes in Ontario. The suggestions that Alberta's middle class favours simple-sounding flat taxes because they are somehow not as bright as The Star's readers and don't understand their own economic interests are pure bunkum.
They very well understand what The Star obviously does not. Encouraging, retaining and attracting successful and rich people is not altruistic, it is smart economics. It is The Star's view that is simplistic - not Albertans'.
