guess who dropped by for dinner?


You get more than just a standard Ed Stelmach speech at Tory fundraising dinners now days:

Premier Ed Stelmach’s $450-a-plate fundraising dinner was interrupted Thursday night by Greenpeace activists who lowered themselves from a catwalk and unfurled a big black banner which read: “$telmach: The Best Premier Oil Money Can Buy.”

Stelmach had just launched into his speech in front of 1,650 people at the Shaw Conference Centre.

A murmur rose from the crowd as the banner was lowered at the back of the room between two giant screens that were broadcasting his remarks.

UPDATE: In response to criticism of their weak record on environmental protection in the tarsands, the Tory government has released a slick booklet as part of an attempt to “re-brand” the Tory government’s weak image (Click here to listen to CBC Radio reporter Erik Denison on the tarsands campaign)
