Alberta Alliance Leadership Convention


The day has finally arrived to vote. I will be in Red Deer for the next few days attending the various Alliance functions, hob knobbing in the hospitality suites, attending policy meetings, schmoozing it up with Richard Evans from Cannuckistan Chronicles ... and most importantly ... voting in a new leader.

I still haven't decided. It's a first for me because when it comes to voting, I usually have my mind made up beforehand. But not this time. My two choices are both strong candidates (Paul Hinman and David Crutcher). I think once I see them in action, ask a few questions, and look them in the eye, I will know.

I am excited about the prospect of meeting some of my fellow bloggers and I hope this will forge an even stronger alliance in our fight for democracy.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Aizlynne: Do you have a URL for the Alberta Alliance?

As a blogger from Seattle, I can't race to Red Deer on short notice but at some point in the future would be eager to come as a blogger-journalist.

Side note: among the many places I've visited in Western Canada in recent years - my one visit to Red Deer left a very strong impression of a truly well-laid out, vital city. I spent more time in areas near Calgary, Airdrie and Didsbury and my memories of those visits have left an indelible imprint on my heart.

OT - I forgot to tell you I tagged you. Sorry about that (either for forgetting or for tagging, whichever you deem appropriate).

& good luck with the leadership thing. ANY step in a different direction, at this point, would be welcomed by Albertans looking for a viable choice.

The party is dead in the water until it has an agenda to confront Ottawa on constitutional impasses and accept the legal option of running a referendum to separate if the impasses are not resolved.

This is what the core of Alberta politics boils down to...ways to protect ourselves from Quebec/Central Canada's greed and averice and their government in Ottawa's malicious meddling in our sovereign jurisdictions ...without this we can kiss any future our resource wealth promises us good bye or any long term economic stability is dubious as Ottawa continues to breech constitutional constraints to raid Our wealth and exclusive jurisdictions to save the east from the economic degeneracy resulting from their socialist governments.

Alberta needs a 25 year sustainability plan and a large part of that will be protecting our wealth and sovereignty from Ottawa.
