Premier's strength irrelevant

Alberta deputy premier Dave Hancock denies Premier Alison Redford's alleged abusiveness, stating she is a very strong premier ('She's just really not a nice lady,' March 14).

The problem is strength does not disprove abuse, nor does it define competence.

Alberta Premier Alison Redford waves to members of the legislative assembly before  the province�s throne speech in early March.

Alberta Premier Alison Redford waves to members of the legislative assembly before the province�s throne speech in early March.

Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un are strong leaders, but very abusive and poor leaders from a social-justice perspective.

Similarly, strong leaders will claim competence because they make the tough decisions. Citizens don't want tough decisions, they want good decisions, and good decisions are not tough to make.
