Couple of things…
– After 35 years out of power and 27 years since electing a single MLA, the Alberta Social Credit Party has decided that they are doing just fine on their own. On Monday, the Socreds called off merger talks with the Alberta Alliance and the Alberta Party.
Their press release stated that:
Leader Lavern Ahlstrom welcomed all Albertans disillusioned with the governing Tory Party to join the Social Credit Party, the “common sense” alternative. “Our doors are open and will always remain open,” said Ahlstrom in a reference to welcoming members of other parties who left Social Credit to return to the “mother ship.” Stressed Ahlstrom, “Social Credit has a future in today’s Alberta and Albertans deserve better.”
Welcome to the mother ship. Vote Social Credit.
