Alberta Politics Gets More Interesting

The Alberta Alliance

...was a right wing political party in Alberta, Canada. Many of its members were former supporters of the now-defunct Canadian Alliance federal political party and its predecessor, the Reform Party of Canada.


On January 19, 2008, the party voted to change its name to the Wildrose Alliance Party of Alberta (WAPA) when it merged with the Wildrose Party

Since the merger, Alliance members appear to have turned their old website into a fundraising "tool" for the newly merged political entity.

People have wondered how a small party such as WAPA could raise funds at nearly the same rate as the Alberta PC. Has their secret been discovered? Moreover, WAPA is currently in the midst of a leadership campaign. Will any of the potentials be offering a demonstration?

Its still not enough to get me to move to Calgary, but its a start.

h/t Buckets, who stumbled upon this during the course of...well, I don't know what he was doing, but I'm sure it was legal.

PS. The original emailed link goes to a full-motion advert displaying a couple of Conservative activists showing off the features. Copied, the same link goes to product info. It says alot about the Alberta Zeitgeist, incidentally, that they would name a sex-toy after the "Fleshjack", a small Partridge indigenous to the Fort Mac area. I hear they're good eating.

The Alberta Alliance no longer exists. Nor does just the Wildrose own it's own.

You think that one is bad you should check out wildrose.net. Click at your own peril.
