EDMONTON - Last Thursday, Gary Mar learned he'll become Alberta's new agent in Washington and must resign as a Tory MLA by late October.

A trip on how to become a better MLA? I hope one of the suggestions they made was about not wasting money on silly trips designed to teach you how to become a better MLA.
