January XXXIst, MMXVIII
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
I am more than willing to give The Hon. Jason Kenney, PC, MLA, United Conservative Party, Calgary-Lougheed every chance to restore civil political discourse to the Alberta Legislature. But alas as I sit there in the observer galleries year after year, decade after decade things only get worse. I go because there is the added attraction that there are no repeat "episodes", every spring & fall there are all new questions & answers as well as debates on many topics. I mean who better than I to analyze this as I have been in more Question Periods alone than most of the current MLAs combined?
