  • Good to see these images and thank you for sharing, Mark. We also had a great turn-out to our dinner at the Agriplex in Athabasca. Elected officials from the Town and County attended, though not as many as I'd have liked. The layoffs here in town mean the loss of families, kids from classrooms, fewer appliance purchases, you name it. Athabasca University is such an important feature in this area. I think the Tory vision to establish the institution out here was magnificent and typical of the sorts of things a young party could do at the time. And now? I'd say lack of vision would be a rather polite way to put things.
