    Thanks for the mention Dave. To correct an entry, I was not defeated by Ian Crawford in Edmonton-Whitemud. I withdrew from the nomination race to seek the nomination in my home riding of Edmonton-Meadowlark.

    Ian Crawford will likely be acclaimed as the candidate for Edmonton-Whitemud July 26th.

    The nominations for Edmonton-Meadowlark close August 5th.

    “Wildrose set to nominate anti-immigration activist in #yyc”

    The Wildrose and Danielle Smith show their true colors. That party is filled with crazies.

    The Wildrose is just too ideological and extreme. Look at the people behind it – Danielle Smith was fired from the school board.

    The Wildrose is really embracing the crazy, I see. Of course the mainstream media will just gloss over the fact that these would-be MLAs are all nutbars, and continue to shower love down on their equally scary leader, Danielle “Palin with contacts” Smith.

    Hopefully blogs like Daveberta can just keep pointing out the truths about these people, like he’s done here. We all know the MSM media pundits come here for their scoop anyways.

    Also, to Rick Newcombe:

    Rick, your website is pretty rough man. It looks like it belongs on an Internet based episode of Hoarders. There’s just way too much stuff on there, and most of it is redundant or nonsense anyways. A lot of the links don’t even work.

    A website is like the cyber equivalent to one’s outfit. If either one is shoddy looking, people won’t take you seriously.

    I had a great couple of weeks helping Kent Hehr register supporters in downtown Calgary over Stampede and Folk Fest. Probably 500 all in all.

    I’m obviously a cheerleader for the ALP of sorts, but I really believe Calgary needs Kent up in Edmonton as Buffalo’s representative. He speaks for a lot of folks.

    How long has Hillier been in AB and just how much does he really know about the province. Hearing about AB through Anders isn’t much of a recommendation in terms of being an MLA for AB.

    “Palin with glasses”? Seriuosly? Scary? Really? Controlled spending, smaller government, protection of property rights. All scary stuff when viewed from a liberal/socialist perspective. Health care spending accounts for over 45% of the provincial budget. Is it better now than 10 years ago? With a population of just 3 million we have 83 MLA’s. Are we better governed than we were 10 tears ago? Property rights are being quashed on a massive, but stealthy manner, with electrical power companies having a virtual monopoly. You want scary, get hold of the “Alberta Land Bills’ and read them,or have some one read them to you.Find yourself in need of a hip replacement, or even something as simple as an MRI. Keep electing Faux Conservatives and you will find uot just how terrifying is “Red(ford) Sonja”
