Alberta Politics: Sunshine, ice cream and a mellow multitude of 10,000 or so usher in the NDP era in Alberta

PHOTOS: Here’s my shot of the crowd as it began to break up after the ceremony had ended and I’d managed to run upstream to the steps of the Legislature.

So, you’re a former capital region mayor, who was popular as mayor, has good progressive credentials and now finds themselves on the inside of provincial government. You might be looking in the mirror today, thinking about the health portfolio and wondering how the world unfolded to put you where you are today.

Trashy's World: Just so I understand…

… because I surely must be confused. The public service is fat, bloated, overpaid and benefits from a pension plan that is second to none (except, of course, that MPs have access to, but that’s different, I guess). Bureaucrats and their hated unions – and those danged union bosses are a big impediment to Canada . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: Just so I understand…
