The Best Non-Indoors Entertainment Event in North America!

From Premier Ed's Stampede breakfast this morning:

Stelmach raised a few eyebrows when, during his opening remarks, he welcomed everyone to "the Alberta Stampede."

  • I'm impressed he didn't get lost crossing the river Styx.

  • Yesterday, the Liberals hold their Stampede breakfast, building on the momentum of a byelection win here, and their leader Kevin Taft finally shows up ... half an hour before it's over.

  • Taft did the Stampede parade and 8 different breakfasts over the weekend.

  • It wasn't the Liberals' Stampede breakfast, it was a breakfast that David Swann organized for his constituents. Taft did pop by though, after visiting the Ismaili Muslim Community of Calgary Breakfast, where he stayed a little longer than he anticipated.

  • Didn't anyone tell him it didn't matter how long he waited, the bacon wasn't ever going to arrive?

  • Stelmach's reputation is anti-Calgarian. Did he actually say something so anti-Calgarian as "Alberta Stampede", or is that a joke?

    If that's serious, he deserves to get beaten by the Liberals. If it isn't, it still says a lot that people would believe he's capable of such idiocy.

  • Understand the Liberal provincial is not Librano$ Federal, however the shameful multi-scams ruputation means a long and tough struggle back to real power.

    No comments... eh?

    Small wonder with Librano$ scams still fourishing.

    Now Judy Sgro*s daughter. Just google *Small Dead Animals*, and;

    Yet I am with you on the *GREEN* side of things. AlGore and Mr. *Fruitfly* trying to bring some enviro-awareness to the unthinking masses.

    Pollution is the culprit of course, however *Global Warming* [snowing in Brazil today], is a good ploy to get people*s attention.

    Personally, I can*t wait for an efficient EV or compessed air automobile. No moe $400 a month for dangerous smelly Exxon-Mobile fuel that I pump into my car while staff sit in the store, warm and dry.

    Did you know that Paris taxis run on compressed air? Like a steam engine with not heat and no steam. Did you know that Tata Motors India produce the compressed air car for Indians at three to $4000 each?

    Did you know that good battery technology exists and Chevron holds the patents? We could have been driving electric cars since 1992 since the GM EV-1. Ever watch *Who killed the Electric car?*

    Is it possible that Chevron, Exxon and General Motors have common shareholders? Interesting that Exxon-Mobile produce a special polymer film for modern lightweight Lithium -Poly batteries. The very basic requirement for a firesafe large format power pack for automotive use. = TG

  • I wasn't at the breakfast but that's the Herald recap so I presume that's what he said.

    By Blogger calgarygrit, at 1:03 PM  

  • I was there (handing out balloons that read "Student Debt is Rising").

    Yes, that's what he said. And yes, you could see his handlers wanting to cry immediately afterwards.

  • Alberta Stampede? There is no way he could have said that by mistake is there? - For an Albertan to say that is akin to an Albert hockey fan sayng the Edmonton Flames.

    It just doesn't scan as a plausible mistake as far as I am concerned. Could he really be willfully sticking it to Calgarians? Or is he actually that much of a dullard? Unbleivable...
