September XXVIth, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
An Editor's Note: So Speaker Of The U. S. House Of Representatives John Boehner, Republican-Ohio is throwing in the towel & quitting his congressional seat at the end of October! Just how many more byelections & Special Elections do we need in one calendar year?
Almost having his ass handed to him for "gross incompetence" as New Democratic Leader, Premier Greg Selinger of Manitoba stopped a "palace coup" by members of his own cabinet. He called for a leadership vote & ran to replace himself. Students of the political game will take note that he only won back his job by XXXIII (33) votes, hardly an inspiring total. Just like the Progressive Conservatives here in Alberta were in power far too long, the same can definitely be said for Manitoba's New Democrats. Gregory is now getting back to work on matters that are important to families in order to see if he can claw his way to another term.
"We are continuing to focus on the things that families hold dear like more affordable child-care spaces, improved health-care facilities & better roads."
