A socialist, a tight fist and a has-been walk into a bar. This could be the start of a bad joke or I could be describing the financial numbers of the three major Alberta political parties.
The financial statements of Alberta’s political parties were just released by Elections Alberta. They show the Progressive Conservatives hitting their best before date like a brick wall, Rachel Notley’s NDP is spending out of control and the frugal Wildrose Party is doing more with less. It’s pretty much exactly what anyone who pays attention to these sort of things would expect.
Watch my video to see the breakdown of the numbers.
Now that corporate and union donations have been banned in Alberta, the PCs can’t rely on their cronies to help them and the NDP can’t get handouts from their buddies in big labour. It’s a much different ballgame in Alberta now that big money is out of the political process.
