In a bizarre move, former Alberta Premier Jim Prentice abandoned his own riding of Calgary-Foothills on election night.
It's bad enough that taxpayers have to foot the bill for the upcoming by-election.
But what's worse is the Alberta NDP's response.
This by-election gave the NDP a chance to reach out to Calgary and the oil patch, and broaden the government's shallow pool of talent. But they didn't take it.
Instead of selecting someone who'd worked in the oil patch, or maybe even run a business, their candidate is life-long party "hack" Bob Hawkesworth.
The Alberta NDP has hired violent criminal Brent Dancey to run an important ministry.
