Henninger on Stelmach
Today, I cede the podium to Brian Henninger, who is running for Stelmach's PCs in Tuesday's incredibly important Calgary Elbow by election:
CALGARY — Brian Heninger’s message at a doorstep in Calgary-Elbow seems downright bizarre from a candidate running for a party that has governed Alberta for more than 35 years.
“I’d choke our premier,” Heninger says to the disgruntled voter, the latest in a string of citizens who have expressed frustration with Progressive Conservative Premier Ed Stelmach.
With friends like these...
INCREDIBLY ENTERTAINING UPDATE:
Ed Stelmach has weighed in and he agrees that Ed Stelmach should be choked:
According to reports, [Henninger] told a constituent at the door he would like to "choke" Stelmach. The premier said that kind of enthusiasm is exactly what he wants in his MLAs.
Ed should be careful what he wishes for, because if things continue like this, he may find himself with a few more "enthusiastic" MLAs in his caucus...
