Prentice term-limit idea is gimmicky and probably unconstitutional: TweetYou are Jim Prentice. You have the podium and the attention of Alberta’s media. You are the next Premier of Alberta. You can dream big. You could promise to replace all of Alberta’s aging hospitals by 2020, to build a high-speed railway from Calgary to Edmonton, to forge a new relationship w...
PC Party compared MLA term-limits to whims of an Ayatollah or a general: TweetToday, Alberta Progressive Conservative Party leadership candidate Jim Prentice proposed term-limits for Premiers and MLAs. The following is an excerpt from an editorial on term-limits for MLA that was printed in the Progressive Conservative Party’s “PC People” magazine published in Septembe...

But in the last few years, especially as a business owner who ...

She is forthright and a great communicator; fun, authentic and passionate for her ideals. I’ve known Greg Clark for some time. I really like him. Greg is the perfect example of the new Alberta in my opinion. Young fam...

Why I’m Supporting Don Iveson: In tomorrow’s civic election, Don Iveson is my pick for Mayor. First, a disclosure and a couple of comments: Don and his wife Sarah are friends, and I am a part of Don’s campaign team. It’s worth reiterating that this is purely a personal opinion, not an endorsement on behalf of any organization...
Arenas and Civic Myopia: This afternoon, Edmonton City Council will consider the Master Agreement for the proposed downtown arena. It will almost certainly pass, with some contingency to cover the missing $100 million if provincial funds don’t materialize. The purpose of this post isn’t to rehash the debate. The argumen...
