Bridget Pastoor Ken Allred

pastoor ponders joining pc caucus?

According to Calgary Herald columnist Don Braid, Lethbridge-East Liberal MLA Bridget Pastoor is considering crossing the floor to the PCs. Braid quoted Pastoor as saying:

“I think things are in flux and we need some major changes in this province. We need democratic reform, whichever side of the house it comes from.”

I agree with this statement, but with a 72 MLAs, I have a difficult time believing that even a moderate democratic reform measure could pass through the institutional inertia of PC caucus. Ask Ken Allred.

UPDATE: A quote from Pastoor in a Liberal news release today:

“I will not cross the floor. I support Dr. Swann’s commitment to democratic reform.”
