No one knows a thing about him, including Albertans. And now he's our Premier.

Since no one knows much of anything about him, his first Cabinet will certainly help define Ed. Daveberta speculates on who will make the cut in Friday's announcement. The CBC has also made a list of his 42 promises and will presumably be checking them off over time.


  • God Ed is boring. My reaction to anything he does comes down to "meh". Even his election promises are boring:

    Education: Revisit the funding formula for schools and students to make it responsive to rapid changes in the student population.

    Helath Care: Work with health regions and health-care professionals to find solutions and incentives that improve a publicly funded health system.

    His first act as premier is to reduce the size of cabinet? Whoop-de-do, this is an old Alberta political party trick – reduce it their first term to show their “doing things differently” and then slowly raise it over time when they realize its difficult for one minister to manage the portfolios of “post-secondary education, primary education, innovation and technology, scientific research, and economic development”. Does anyone really care about eliminating cabinet spots?

    Jim was at least was charismatic, Morton you could get fired up about, Ed

  • Eddy is a jack of all trades as are most farmers, and master of us all, for the time being. He's no king Ralph thats for sure. He is quiet or "boring" depending on your take. The reason most people have never heard of him is... he just gets things done and does not go looking to be in the limelight for doing so. Not your typical politician. Lets hope he continues his old ways.

  • It seems, tertiary education students will soon be able to complete not only the simplest tasks but go through gradually planned research on the given topic at all colleges. It is possible because example essays at don't lack experience in writing short pieces for my class-mates and college friends. This service does its job the same way our goals are set and can refer to the act of using brains to reflect.
