This is hopefully the lowest point of the recession, but what if it's not? When are we going to show some compassion for our brothers and sisters? We are all just working for the man, aren't we? We aren't seeking your sympathy, we don't want any remorse. Just have some damn respect while we pinch our pennies until things pick up again.
In my life as a community blogger I occasionally get emails and messages from those curious about where I live. Sometimes they come from those who have been to northern Alberta, and sometimes they come from people from countries far away, wondering if this is the place they have been looking for to change their fortunes.
