"I don’t know where Ed Stelmach’s personality is but I didn’t take it"

Haven already provided a year of A+++ government, it appears Edward Stelmach has turned his attention to more pressing issues – those meddlesome kids. The Premier has threatened to sue Daveberta for registering the edstelmach.ca domain name, thereby misappropriating Ed’s personality.

Dave gives a pretty good run down of the facts but I would add that one of the four grievances by Edward Stelmach is that, since Daveberta has Adsense, a profit has been made off of Stelmach’s persona without his permission. Might I suggest to Dave that he just give the Premier a cut of his google revenues to solve this problem? I’m not sure the $3.84 a month will necessarily pay for Edward’s legal bills, but it would be a start.

The weirdest part about all of this is that, despite an army of “overzealous volunteers” scouring the province for “unethical donations” (Ed’s words, not mine), none of them were zealous enough to think of registering the Premier’s domain name at any point during the leadership race or during his first four months in office.



  • How could he have not registered his domain name? He must have had a website during the leadership race.

  • Another month goes by and I'm left asking myself, is it time to get back into the political game... clearly Eddie and the PC Alberta Executive are acting like a bunch a pathetic kids... if I'm not mistaken the lawyer involved in this letter is a member of PCAB Exec.

    Open Thought to Mr. Taft

    Please Mr. Taft, give us ticked off PC's a reason to sign up - good economic and solid environmental policy is a starter. Not the kind of lame ass Royalty Policy that will kill drilling, and weak environmental policy that have from Ed.

    Never before have the Liberal's had such an opportunity in Alberta, so far you haven't capitalized on it, now is your window.

  • islandlib; He got the .com one but forgot to book the .ca

    That's pretty basic stuff these days though. I know the Tories got daltonmcguinty.ca in Ontario but it's my understanding they'd been holding onto it for years beforehand. How anyone can forget to register both the .ca and .com in this day and age is beyond me.

  • Stelmach is a jerk for pursuing this the way he is for the .ca domain. Not only is he broadcasting loudly that he is an idiot for not registering the domain, but he's bullying a college student. Both good ways to show he deserves his own mandate in the next election.

    This incident serves as yet another example of why the PCs are out of touch and Alberta needs a change.

  • This is sort of like watching someone punch themself in the face. You know Ed's making a fool out of himself, but you can't help but look.

    Still, I have greater concerns about this issue. Is Ed's bullying tactics representational of his style of government. I mean, his office made the mistake. I've never heard any admitance of wrong on their part, only that they made a mistake so they will attack the person who pointed out their blunder.

    I think Albertan's should make a bigger deal about this issue:
