Just two weeks after writing that:
The PC party will only be in real trouble, and MLAs could leave more readily, if riding workers themselves start sliding over to the Wildrose Alliance.
...Peter Braid finds a couple of riding workers sliding over to the Wildrose Alliance:
...now the mayor of Bonnyville, Ernie Isley, has joined the Wildrose Alliance, along with an outspoken town councillor named Gene Sobolewski. For good measure, so has a former Tory MLA named Doug Cherry, who used to represent Lloydminster and now lives in Calgary.
"Too many things have happened with the leader," says Cherry, MLA from 1986 to 1993. "I just can't support him any longer.
My opinion: Alberta politics is sick and needs some kind of shaking up. Whether a party further to the right of the Alta. Tories is the answer, I don't know. I note that, back in her Global T.V. days, Danielle M. Smith, the WAP's likely new leader, was one of Steve McIntyre's biggest media pimps.
So that's obviously not good.
