As I wrote the other day the Leadership Race to replace Ralph will have national implications. Even more than the Liberal Leadership race.I see that Toronto Star columnist Chantal Hébert agrees with me.
The last federal election campaign demonstrated that a few weeks can really be an eternity in politics. The next two weeks will change the Canadian landscape in fundamental ways.That starts Saturday when Alberta Conservative members take the first step in picking the successor to Premier Ralph Klein. With eight candidates running, the process is expected to require a second ballot a week later.In time, its outcome will have a profound impact on the rest of Canada. The balance of economic power is shifting west and with it unprecedented clout for the leader who will next be speaking for Alberta at the federal-provincial table.
