Kenney Goes 0-3 In Calgary Municipal Elections

His favoured candidate for mayor (Ric McIvor), in Ward 12 (Al Browne), and in ward 14 (Richard Dur) all went down to defeat in Calgary's municipal election last night. Coincidence?

Oh, and as Holly notes in the comments to a previous post, I for one welcome our new Muslim overloards. I doubt, however, that I am as excited as this guy.

PS. The elected alderman for ward 14 wound-up being Peter DeMong. That's Craig Chandler's candidate (he was campaign manager). Ah well, I guess nobody loses all the time.

Levant calls him a liberal, but honest and smart. Funny, he doesn't mention the Muslim thing.

Give him a month.

The Calgary Sun endorsed Nenshi and with Calgarians overwhelmingly having voted for Nenshi, Levant won't say a thing.

A Jew for mayor in Edmonton (third term), a Muslim for mayor in Calgary and Rob Ford for mayor for Toronto.

Sounds about right to me.

Make the Flames vs. Oilers rivalry a bit more interesting at least.
