Mar, Horner or Redford??? Are you kidding me? I thought Stelmach was bad, but these candidates are killers....killers of the PC party that is. What a joke! Our PC's are on the same track as the federal Liberals, dying a slow painful DEATH without understanding how it is happening.Until this weekend, the debate amongst Alberta’s long-ruling Progressive Conservatives wasn’t if the party needed to change to survive, but how. By Saturday night, after votes had been tallied for the party’s leadership race to replace retiring premier Ed Stelmach, it was clear that change had already come. The contest isn’t over: the top three contenders — Gary Mar, Doug Horner and Alison Redford — will now spend the next two weeks running like Kenyan marathoners into the last stretch of the drawn-out race. But the results revealed a party clearly and profoundly transformed after four-and-a-half tumultuous years under Mr. Stelmach’s rule. And not for the better.
I have mentioned before that the Wildrose Alliance was looking like the party to vote for, now I know for sure that they are Alberta's only viable alternative. They could not possibly be worse than what we have suffered these last 4 and 1/2 years. It has been torture. That torture must end. No self respecting Conservative could vote these guys back in. It is time for the reign to end.
I got lots of calls from Morton's team and Mar's, I still couldn't be bothered to vote. Mar's people were down right rude, wonder how obnoxious they will be if they win. It doesn't really matter, whoever becomes our next Premier is going to have a short reign.....bring on the election so we can get rid of all those do nothing PC bums. I guess the Liberals and NDP who pretend to be Conservatives are voting for Mar, because no Conservative would ever think he was a good choice.
Wildrose, Alberta's new and only hope. Now is the time for them to ramp up their profile. Get the word out, the PC's are DEAD, and the Wildrose is the only alternative. I am going to buy a Wildrose membership now, and volunteer for them next election. It's time to rid Alberta of the "Red Tories" who are currently in power.
It Is Time For The Reign To END!
