I guess we should be happy that Stelmach has realized that he is incapable of managing Alberta’s government and economy. Special Ed has taken it upon himself to appoint a panel to take over where he has failed. Unfortunately, Stelmach has appointed people on the same caliber of foresight and intelligence as himself.
To begin with Ed has chosen Anne McLellan. Remember her? The former LIBERAL deputy prime minister who was integral in implementing the $2 billion dollar gun registry. Yes, this is clearly a mind of fiscal wisdom. Anne was an integral part of Chretien’s regime.
Next is David Dodge. Dodge was the LIBERAL appointed head of the Bank of Canada. He was an integral part of Chretien’s regime.
Adding to the list is David Emerson. This is the LIBERAL MP opportunist who quit his own party in order to get into Harper’s cabinet. Emerson was too cowardly to face the electorate after his appointment and sniveled away in less than two years rather than face the electorate again after having crossed the floor.
By the way, Emerson is from Montreal, Dodge is from Toronto and Anne is from Nova Scotia. One would think that after putting tens of thousands out of work that Ed could find some local talent. Ed sure has tapped the bastion of federal Liberals anyway.
Albertans think that they elected a conservative? Look where Special Ed will be getting his advice now;?
Federal Liberals who could not make the grade are now Ed Stelmach’s braintrust.
What the progressive liberals er I mean conservatives. I wonder what the liberal party thinks being the oppositon? How could they oppose the liberal spending going on in todays government? My guess is this is why David Swann is so quiet, what can he bitch about?
The amount of money being spent is about right for Swann and Mason, but I am sure they feel incensed that they can’t spend it themselves.
6 gun anne.. Now there’s an icon of prudent fiscal management..
