Quote, unquote ·"I think its likely to be a minority government, but I have concerns...if the Conservatives get in there are people in the Conservative party particularly out west who are very pro-Alberta. I'm not saying they're anti-Canada but if the Conservatives do form the government...it's more likely they would align with the Bloc Quebecois. If you have people in Alberta who are strong believers in provincial rights and people in the Bloc who are pro-Quebec...even if there was no real movement to break up Canada, they would be working at increasing provincial rights, which would weaken the federation... "I'm very comfortable with the Liberal philosophy... you never get a 100 per cent complete fit, but as a general rule I like the policies they advocate." "There are people who say I don't want to vote for any of them (politicians)...Whenever you have large organizations like the government that has a lot of money flowing through it you're going to find people interested in getting some of it to stick to their fingers...I can understand why people do get cynical, but that's exactly the wrong response. When you see something happening you don't like, you have to try and fix it..."
