On April 18th, 1930, the BBC evening news announced, "There is no news." And then they just played piano music.

The rodent literally died and they just tried to find a similar one without telling anyone but failed because of the groundhog hibernation cycle. This story is wild and I love it

The latest on Wiarton Willie: the local mayor emphatically denies there was a coverup of Willie’s death. She said she kept it secret to “protect the town” and the “Wiarton Willie brand.”

Many new board members were elected at the AGM, so the party says they need onboarding/training first.

From the UCP re: the status of the request from 22 constit. associations for an earlier leadership review: "We expect the board will decide to meet formally in early Dec. to review the request and make sure it is compliant with our bylaws before making any other decisions" #ableg

Premier Jason Kenney closed out his speech by telling the members: "We have some internal differences. Every big tent political party does and always will ... But let us address and resolve those internal differences internally." #ableg #cdnpoli

Kenney says he welcomes a leadership review: "I just have one request: Between now and then, let us focus our efforts and our attention on the people's business." Premier says keep internal issues internal and focus on the priorities of the people #ableg #cdnpoli

Elements of humility but not contrition from Premier Kenney during his speech. Acknowledges the anger from members but says there was no way he was going to let COVID crash the healthcare system. Says the province is surging economically, thanks to gov. policy. #ableg #cdnpoli

There have been at least three jabs at CPC Leader Erin O'Toole so far this morning at the UCP convention. Members upset with his stance on carbon tax, among other things. #ableg #cdnpoli

UCP members have voted to defeat a motion to increase the threshold to 1/3 of constituency associations to trigger a leadership review. 22 recently passed such a motion (equaling 1/4 which is the current rule) #ableg #cdnpoli
