Adapt or Leave

Craig Chandler comes through in Calgary Egmont!

I'll go into quite some detail on the saga of Craig Chandler tomorrow for those who haven't been following it. To put it into perspective, this is akin to Randy Hillier losing a nomination which he is the more moderate candidate. This is going to be fun, fun, fun!

UPDATE: More nomination news for the Tories. The scud stud takes the Calgary Currie nom, pitting him against deputy ALP leader Dave Taylor. Meanwhile in Calgary Buffalo, it's Sean Chu who gets the nod, setting up a battle with Kent Hehr. Given that Sean has been quite active with the federal Liberals before, it just goes to show how ridiculous the lumping of the ALP and LPC in together is.



  • Is that the same Craig Chandler who ran for the Tory leadership, but dropped out before the first ballot, spewing out venom in one of the most hateful consolation speeches since Jacques Parizeau?

  • Yep! One in the same.

  • Yup, he endorsed Prentice much to the dismay of the Prentice organizers...

  • Now that Arthur Kent has decided to return to Canada and run as Tory, can you provide any insight into how this affects Liberal fortunes in Calgary Currie?

  • So, he's like the "Joe Volpe" of Alberta politics?

  • Kent will lose - Dave Taylor is a door-knocking machine who has hit every home in the riding since he was elected.

    Kent will have to run the campaign on his own because the central PC Party organization is weak, fractured, and just waiting to kick Ed out and have round two of the leadership race.

  • How was Sean Chu involved with the Federal Liberals?

  • The dude is completely just, and there is no suspicion.
