Third, as distasteful as Kenney may or may not be, he's going to be head, shoulders, ass & toe fungus above Red Rachel.

As for your article noting that Ian Donovan quit, he was previously elected as MLA for one of the local constituencies under the Wildrose banner, crossed the floor to Prentice's Conservatives & lost the subsequent election largely because of that. I hadn't even heard he was part of the board of yet another local constituency. Having voted for him once I (and many others) had high hopes for him but he let us all down when he crossed the floor. He's moved around so much I'm not sure he knows what he wants.
Yep. When you're bleeding profusely, you don't care so much who manufactured the tourniquet. For Alberta's tiny cadre of NDP loyalists, the idea that Notley is failing beyond comprehension is not something they can perceive, so they continue to believe picking tiny holes in the UCP will be a game changer.

I have no regard for the Wild Rose floor crossers either. Had they not walked, they would be the government right now under Danielle Smith. The UCP was necessary only because of their failure, so they can suck it up now if they don't like the new game.

Perhaps he should take lessons from the honourable member of Elbowgate? Or the prime suspect in the groping of a Creston, BC journalist years ago, aka The Prime Groper? Or, that wunnerful, shining example of progressive feminism & perfect hair (albeit with a droopy eyebrow) & one who certainly would not pressure any fellow female Progs <cough-JWR-cough> into any sort of questionable moral issues, aka Justa Turd?

Yep, he's definitely the one to give lessons to Kenney...

So, what's the thrust here? Calling someone out on a public board for their poor math skills is considered rude but calling someone an asshole on the same board numerous times is considered acceptable conduct?

Must be more of that erudite progressive thinking on display...

So much for creating a party run by the grassroots.

You’re one to talk. Told anyone to “fukc you” lately? It used to be your daily utterance at one time.

Notley too. I call it a wash on that issue.
