This Week in Alberta - Just Visiting Calgary Glenmore?
Oh, and on that note, I heard from senior anonymous Liberal strategist insider that Calgary Liberal MLA Dave Taylor has been approached to toss his hat into the ring next year - after losing the ALP leadership to Swann, and given Calgary's bizarre habit of election Liberal mayors, there might be some truth behind this one.
In Other News...
-Daveberta looks at the Edmonton 2010 mayoral race.
-With Danielle Smith considering a run for the Wildrose Alliance leadership, you have to imagine she might also consider running in the Glenmore by election. For what it's worth, I think it would be great for the Alliance to get a credible leader like Smith, who could put some pressure on Stelmach from the right.
-Ray Martin will be running for the NDP yet again in Edmonton East.
-Check out this great quote from Culture Minister Lindsay Blackett:
"How can people say I'm anti-gay?" Blackett asks. "I can't deal with the arts community every day by being anti-gay. They'd pick that up in a minute."
UPDATE: From team Dadamo:
Over the course of the last few weeks, Mr. Dadamo has been engaging Calgarians in conversation about the issues that matter most to them – listening and learning about the challenges we face as a community and the oppurtunities that are before us.
He will continue that conversation for the next couple of weeks, before making a formal decision as to whether or not to seek the Alberta Liberal nomination in Calgary Glenmore. In the meantime he is thankful for the literally hundreds of emails, words of support and prayers he has received in the last four weeks.
