Swann Song?

I really hate to post on rumours before they're confirmed. After all, this might just be a case of Global jumping the gun. But I really wanted to beat the rest of the press with the headline above, so here's the story:

First Stelmach, then Morton ... is Swann next?

CALGARY – There may be yet another bombshell dropped by a high profile Alberta politician this week.

Last Tuesday, Premier Stelmach announced he will resign at the end of the next legislative session. Two days later, Ted Morton resigned from cabinet in order to run in the PC leadership race.

This time, it could be a member of the opposition party.

Global News has learned that David Swann is talking about stepping down as Liberal party leader. He discussed his resignation with party executives and caucus members over the weekend.

More to come tomorrow, if it becomes official...



  • I kind of hope he doesn't resign, he's been a relatively good leader so far. I mean, down in the polls as they are, the Liberals could be in a much worse situation than they are.

  • Well, the Alberta Liberals are the Official Opposition somewhere where the government is desperately unpopular. And they're desperately unpopular themselves. There must be some way to better that...
