I was planning on taking a bit of a break from writing about the cesspooly trenches of partisan politics for the next couple weeks, but I’ll make an exception today for the few points…
– By now, I’m sure everyone has seen what a $25 million public relations campaign couldn’t even dream of coming close to accomplishing.
– Former Alberta Liberal MLAs Mo Elsalhy (Edmonton-McClung) and Maurice Tougas (Edmonton-Meadowlark) have started up a blog on Alberta politics. Not very often do Albertans hear from former MLAs, so this should be an ongoing interesting read.
– On the topic of former MLAs, former NDP Edmonton-Calder MLA Dave Eggen is the new Executive Director of the Friends of Medicare. Eggen fills the spot vacated by Harvey Voogd (Voogd stepped down to run for a Ward 3 City Council spot in 2007, he was defeated by Ed Gibbons and Tony Caterina).
– And finally, political differences aside, I want to wish my friend Anand Sharma all the good luck that I can muster in his run for the Presidency of the Alberta NDP at this weekend’s convention in Calgary. Good luck, Anand!
