Much Ado About Nothing


It's been awhile.

I arrived home late this evening, actually 1:10 in the morning, after reviewing the results of the 2012 Alberta Provincial Election.

Greeting me was the large 4' x 8' Kent Hehr sign proudly displayed on my front porch.  Supporting Kent was an easy task, living in Calgary Buffalo, Kent is a good human being and a very good MLA, no question.

I visited Kent's campaign office earlier in the evening to receive the results confirming my predictions that Kent would win in Calgary Buffalo for the Alberta Liberal Party.  However, my vote was for Kent, not the Party, he was the best person for the job.

I left Kent's campaign office for CTV Prime Time, where I was a guest to wrap up the election outcomes.

Earlier in the day I met with a number of political observers for lunch at the Joyce on 4th to discuss the outcome of the 2012 election.

There were senior political strategists, pollsters, media personnel and others.  In unison they supported a Wildrose majority in Alberta following the vote count.  Most had planned to be in the Highwood campaign headquarters of the newly-elected Premier Danielle Smith.

There were a hand full who predicted a PC minority.

No need to name names here, some are rather embarrassed with the outcome after having publicly declared a Wildrose majority, let's leave them rest in peace.

However, I did predict a PC victory albeit much larger than my numbers.

More thoughts on the outcome tomorrow, tonight time to rest and breath a sigh of relief that my Province was not hijacked by the Social Conservations under a Wildrose umbrella.

Good night, sweet dreams, we are in good hands with Alison steering the great ship Alberta.
