Second column today. Smith’s sovereignty dream knocked by all other candidates but one; plus, Rempel Garner rocks the UCP. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #abgov #ucpleadership #yeg #YYC

In case you were wondering, Gotfried is one of the UCP MLAs who was critical of Kenney without being nasty. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #abgov #ucpleadership #yeg #yyc

@DuaneBratt @MichelleRempel MRG’s rationale is bang on. Particularly when standing for democratic principles, ethics, integrity, accountability w/in @UCPCaucus @Alberta_UCP is called “bickering”, childish, cowardly and self-indulgent (assholes), resulting in censure, repercussions, exclusion, ostracization!

Rempel Garner isn’t running but she did something more valuable - wrote a brutally honest and devastatingly accurate critique of the UCP’s divisions and problems. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #abgov #ucpleadership #yeg #yyc

MP Rempel Garner rejects the UCP; the UCP rejects Raj Sherman. Either way, it’s not a good look. Column. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #ucp #yyc #yyccc #ucpleadership #yeg

Danielle Smith’s Free Alberta Strategy has virtually co-opeted the UCP leadership campaign. Tonight 7 candidates will debate it, with Rob Anderson, a Strategy author, as moderator. #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli #ucp #yyc #yyccc #ucpleadership #yeg
