Sandra Jansen was running for the Progressive Conservative leadership just over a week ago, but has since crossed the floor to the Alberta NDP showing she’s a political chameleon who chooses her alignment based on who’s winning.
In the press conference with Alberta Premier Rachel Notley announcing the floor crossing, she said she’s a centrist and that the NDP reflects these views. The NDP is a party that includes among its caucus members people who openly admire Hugo Chavez!
For those who have been following Sandra Jansen, her floor crossing is no surprise. We saw this coming at least a year ago when she started voting with the NDP almost as often as she did with her own party.
Then along with her leadership campaign bid came the attacks on Jason Kenney, allegations of abuse and harassment and labelling any right winger that crossed her path a bigoted extremist.
And while Jansen was a progressive conservative MLA, she was campaigning and hanging out with Federal Liberals including her buddy Nirmala Naidoo Hill and Liberal MP Kent Hehr, whose victory last year brought her near to tears.
She was a conservative in name only, clearly running as one to win a seat in the legislature.
Watch my video, as I describe how hypocritical this floor-crossing move is and why Sandra Jansen’s political career is over!
