"Ratbat Eject, Prepare IV Flight!"
October XXIXth, MMXIII
Hon. Jeff Johnson, MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Athabasca-Sturgeon-RedH2O
While its I suppose great that Premier Alison Redford, MLA, Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Elbow is preparing to fly to Washington, D. C. IV a Vth time to lock in the Keystone Energy oilsands deal, should she not have announced it after the Alberta Legislature session ends? Students studying etiquette & proper parliamentary procedure might think she is announcing it now to deflect attention away from the very important fall sitting of the Alberta Legislature. Its like Danielle Smith, MLA, Wildrose, Highwood says, the Premier just cannot stand being there in the chamber. This is not really smart politics is it? Sure she's going on her airline trip after the session ends but by announcing it now, she's singlehandedly making the Legislature & its MLA's seem less important.
