Missing: Alberta's premier

Share us!

Dave Cournoyer and I had beers last week. It was the beginning of something beautiful, as Dave filled me in on his take on politics in the province and country, and I told him why I am variously awesome. Dave’s a keen political observer, and though he’s been branded a lefty by some — because he once worked for the provincial Liberals — I see Dave as more of a post-partisan. He’s disaffected by all political parties, and particularly by the state of politics in Alberta.

And rightly so.

One of the topics Dave and I discussed over beers was where, exactly, Ed Stelmach had gotten to. No one has heard a peep from the man since the day he promised us that the beers Dave and I were consuming wouldn’t cost more on account of taxes — recession be damned!

We weren’t sure of the premier’s whereabouts, so we decided to put up “Missing” posters, imploring someone — anyone — who has seen Steady Eddie to let us know. Check it:

    We are on a hunt for the Premier. We posted pictures and handed out missing posters at the Alberta Legislature. Like all missing people, if he can he will come home first!!

    Seems to me the poster is advocating the return to health care premiums, a regressive tax. Not a poster I would endorse. No need to post this comment.

    Amusing, but I agree with Ralph to some extent.
