Danielle Smith is a typical politician. She seemed like someone who really cared about responsibility in government….Ha Ha Ha , fooled you again, gullible fools! "Now I’m just doing what comes naturally to us politicos …screwing you, and grabbing any available space at the trough!

Can Prentiss be blocked from dropping the writ? I would rater he wait until the federal election is over so we can have a referendum on separation if the Trudeau becomes PM.

The just goes to show that the success of Alberta’s economy over the past couple of decades were in spite of it’s government and not because of it.

If Smith wins in Highwood, it’ll either be by fraud or because there are a lot more stupid people out there than I realize. I like to think Albertans are smarter than that but there’s always voter fraud to ensure a win. Even with memberships, myself and most of my friends and neighbours weren’t allowed to vote in the Alberta PC leadership.

Good idea Jim. Spend more money you don’t have. Blaming oil prices. Daniele has to give up 144000 votes in the next election to pay us back

Haven’t seen phony smiles like that since Paul Martin’s days.

Those jokers shouldn’t be allowed to have the word conservative in their party name.
