September IInd, MMXVI
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
Jean, MLA, Wildrose, Fort McMurray-Conklin espousing in a joke format the "beating" of our Premier! This is completely unacceptable! I happen to like Rachel Notley, MLA, New Democratic, Edmonton-Strathcona very much because her late dad Grant had integrity & espoused socialism in a left-wing format, but in a gentlemanly way & as his legacy passed much of this on to his very good daughter Rachel. Its the height of hypocrisy for Brian to have made this statement. He's a lawyer & should know better & the only way for him to get out of this would be to apologize to Rachel & the Province in the Assembly Chamber during Members Statements on Alberta Hansard. Especially as he got after other folks for doing do during the Fort McMurray forest fire crisis at press conferences! Can you say credibility blown?!
Progressive Conservative, Calgary-North West. She is a potential PC Leadership contestant for a party that is so ensconced in extremists & others who have siphoned off its respect & dignity that they have taken the away of the average party voter to a vote by returning to a delegate system. Members like Parker Hogan & others believe that electing someone even more arrogant & even more of an asshole than Premier Jim Prentice will make their party better. I myself have received two phone calls from PC Party President Katherine O'Neill's office & numerous emails about rejoining PC Alberta & when I call back to say no, they keep asking. Katherine O'Neill cheated to win her nomination race in Edmonton-Meadowlark when we all know that Tom Choucair or Steve Benson would have been a far superior candidate. She's even more useless as President than her mother-in-law Mary O'Neill was a one term PC MLA in St. Albert. The fact that Sandy used to be the Southern Alberta Communications Director for Premier Alison Redford makes me think she shouldn't get this job either as the Redford allies & lackeys would be in operational of the party again. Plus it has an Interim Leader in Ric McIver, MLA, Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Hays who lied about cancelling the Sky Suite & who isn't being barred from running to replace himself & marches in parades with anti-gay groups. Plus ex-MLA's like Dave Coutts who has sent me numerous emails over the years but when I respond with an email back gets mad at me. He's just as useless & half past dead retired old fart as he was an MLA, even more so!
Exhibit Three: We carry on over to ex-MLA & "Pretty Boy" Thomas Lukaszuk. He might run a second time for PC Alberta Leader. Then is surprised over the dancing around over his leaked cellphone bills. Look no one wants to say it but it was the dead MLA & ex-Prentice Hatchet Man Manmeet Bhullar is the leaker & because he died his reputation is protected. Why, what harm can it do Manmeet now, he's dead?! This is a man who got into a shouting match with a Wildrose supporter at the man's door that almost came to shoving.
Exhibit Four: As for Jason Kenney, PC, MP, Conservative, Calgary-Midnapore, while hard working & industrious as an MP, he'd be better off staying in Ottawa as his constituents love how he pays attention to their needs. Of course of the bad lot of the bunch, Jason would bring the greatest dignity to being the potential XVIIIth Premier of Alberta. But he just doesn't seem like a people person.
None of these four should be the next leader of a "United Right." There has to be a fresh face.
