Welcome to my blog, “An insiders view of Alberta politics”. I hope it will allow me to provide some insight into what goes on here at the legislature and in the political realm as a whole. Of course, I will be unable to resist expounding on the virtues of Alberta’s NDP and some of our ideas to make life better for Alberta families. So for those who dislke partisanship, I apologize in advance.
I also hope to provoke some good debate and discussion about Alberta politics and hopefully generate a few good ideas to improve public policy in Alberta. So please feel free to participate – I’d like this to be a two-way conversation.
Some of my staff are a little nervous about me getting into trouble by being too controversial. But I’ve been elected for 21 years now, and I know where most of the cowpies in the pasture are, since I’ve stepped in most of them at one time or another. Maybe I’ll find some new ones, but here goes.
