I am heavily involved in the current election campaign to elect a leader for the PC Party who will ultimately become the premier of the province. And I am seeing all kinds of dirty tricks and inconsistencies that are so cunningly played out that the general public would never suspect that they are being heavily manipulated.
Take the example of the whole email fiasco with Ted Morton where he is being accused of having a duplicate email under a false name. He was trashed by the Calgary Herald and the Edmonton Journal for 3 straight days before it was revealed that others do it to, including current Premier Ed Stelmach. http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Politics/2011/09/09/18663721.html
Then there is Gary Mar who when he was health minister handed over a bunch of major cash to his executive assistant Kelley Charlebois. Not only was it an un-tendered contract but also there was no deliverables for Mr. Charlebois. Check this out: http://members.shaw.ca/srollans/democracy/beyond/hansard/hansard_05.html
Now Mr Mar is calling for transparency in government – really?
And the media is not saying a word about any of this.
If Gary Mar is your next premier who will he surround himself with? Look at what his people are up to now: http://thealbertaardvark.blogspot.com/2011/09/team-gary-mar-gets-caught-giving-away.html Free Memberships is what they were giving away except these are not really free. So is Gary trying to buy this election? No media coverage!
And get this Kelley Charlebois is now working on Gary Mar’s election campaign.
