Quick Links

-The Politic has a post up asking the question "does Alberta have culture?" Those who doubt it, have obviously never been to the Torrington Gopher Hole Museum.


-Speaking of stuffed gophers, Stephen Taylor has an interview up with Jason Kenney on his site.


-Eddie has looked anything but steady in recent days, grabbing big headlines in the major dailies about his now cancelled $5,000 a head special interest fundraiser. What's most interesting about this story is how the media has pounced on it here - in Kleinberta, something like this wouldn't have raised an eyebrow so it looks like Mr. Ed is going to face more media scrutiny than his predecessor (that is to say, more than "none").


-I was at the Dion town hall last night in Edmonton and will post a recap later today.


-Paul Wells has his Jean Lapierre eulogy up. The best e-mail response I got from my post on Lapierre yesterday was as follows: "Maybe we should all wear black armbands. . . . in celebration".


-Speaking of Lapierre, he isn't quite done with the memorable lines yet:

"He has to get people who have nothing to do with the sponsorship scandal and all that. He has to allow the party to re-establish its virginity," Mr. Lapierre said.

  • Stuffed gopher? When I think of Kenney I'm more apt to think of gerbils.

  • By the way, regarding the question "Does Alberta have culture?", I've been commenting in real-life quite a bit lately how almost all of my favourite blogs come from Alberta. Natch, this one is tops on that list.

  • Kevin Taft recently held an exclusive $3,000/plate fundraising dinner for Toronto business leaders. How is that different from the stunt Stelmach tried to pull?

  • CG, Since you didn't get around to recapping Dion's visit yesterday, I'll help you out.

    Dion: You in Alburda are lucky. You get all the easy money but you are melting the canal in Ottawa, when I will be Prime Minister I will stop you from making it ot. We in theee eeast know more dan you dumb rednecks so we will take your easy money, and make a big government which will have mega tonnes of money to steal.

    Mr aaarper is an evil neocon man who has no social conscience, and you weel pay for voting for im. To ell with you.
