Good News

 ...because in Alberta the Tories are the lesser crazy.

Good news, for you BCL, because the Alberta Tories would be considered quite left of the B.C. Liberals.. and would be very comfortable sharing a bed with Dalton McGuinty.

Good news for "conservative" Albertans? Not so much.

The bottom line is that the Liberal Party of Alberta, who has toyed for years about changing their name - doesn't realize that it's already happened.

They didn't exactly change their name - but their members slowly, over time, became the Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta.

It's a funny thing - because I voted for Turner, Chretien and Martin - so I'm no hard-core Tory -but after working with the PC party for years, I've become very uncomfortable with the idea of a government who pretends to be one thing and then does something completely different.

I guess, the bottom line, is the party lacks integrity.

Right now - the leading candidate is Gary Mar. A man who abused his position by handing out an untendered contract to a former aid who was never asked to produce any evidence that he actually did any work. He collected the money, but gave nothing back to show why.

And as a result, Gary was sort of shuffled off to a plum post in Washington, D.C., only to come back now like nothing ever happened.

It's pretty disconcerting, I think.

I just can't see voting for any party that would have C. Chandler as a member.
