I suspect they hoped it would never be noticed until someone sent a parcel into Fort McMurray and got dinged an extra $5. The fact that it was never publicly communicated makes me suspicious of this, and it seems an underhanded attempt to increase costs without ever telling the public they serve that the cost was going up.
It is hard to describe what happened after I heard our local MLA had been charged in a prostitution sting. I cried when I was first told, cried for what it meant on every level, and cried because I - and my 13-year old daughter - have spent time with Allen. I was there when he announced his nomination for the PC party. I was there when he won the constituency in which I reside - my daughter and I were there for his victory party. I was there when he participated in announcements on the twinning of Highway 63.
