Tough To Swallow
9/3/2012 1:12:00 AM
On this Labor Day, I want to say thank you to the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees and their “Tough To Swallow” video that will see some changes made to how our seniors are treated. When my dad was alive, just a few months ago, I had been to visit him at the lodge he was in. He wanted me to stay for dinner and while I was happy to do that, I was sad at what I saw on the plate. The food did not look appetizing. The alleged green beans looked as though they had been freezer burned or something and they tasted gross. As my dad ate his, I asked him what he thought of the meal. He told me they all learned to just eat what they were given. Most days, he said the food was O.K. I said I would complain. He asked me not to, since he lived in fear of being booted out. He had already caused a stir the day he asked for three slices of tomato instead of the two they were allowed. I have been critical of unions at times, but thanks to the AUPE, come December and the new rules, Christmas dinner might actually taste like turkey, along with some locally grown and delightfully prepared vegetables. God bless us, everyone.
