I'm merely going to enjoy watching the province burn as the radical left and far right tear each other apart. There is no centre.

EDIT: All things considered. I know I cannot vote for the NDP and the UCP grows ever more unpalatable for me. Would the Alberta Party be a viable option?

People were betting in the Civil Service whether she'd drop the writ before or after tabling the budget. The same Budget we've been working hard on for WEEKS.

Ahh well, I guess the RCMP investigation into Kenney's campaign was too much of a 'Redford Palace' moment not to take advantage of it.

I think the Alberta Party is about as close to centre as you get in Alberta - fiscal responsibility and sound economic policy while also protecting health care and education:

Rachel Notley is going to win, not by a huge margin like she did in 2015 but close enough because Jason Kenney is not the savior of Alberta.

Probably voting for the Dippers. Kenney is just proving himself to be too sleazy and I genuinely dislike how much influence the social conservatives have gained since the PC/WRA merger. I don't doubt that the UCP will win but it won't be good for the province in either the short or long run. All it will mean is that Alberta will have a government well on it's way to being as scandal- and grift-ridden as the Grant Devine government in Saskatchewan was way back when. Trying to set a new record for corruption isn't something to be proud of, unless it's now considered an "accomplishment" in what passes for conservatism these days.

Notley's also a decent person compared to Kenney, and I'm damn sick and tired of being told the "necessity" of voting for a bad person in order to "get things done". :evil:

My Conservative Parents are voting for Rachel Notley for these very reasons. It's easier to go with what you know then what you don't know and with the revelations from Derek Filderbrandt how Jason Kenney wanted him to go after Brian Jean speaks volumes of how sleazy he really is.

If this rigging of the UCP leadership race turns out to be true, and was deliberately done by Kenney's orcs to obliterate Brian Jean, then Jason Kenney has no moral right to govern.
