Rural Roots

This headline says it all about Ed Stelmach's, the new President of the Executive Council of Alberta, choices for Cabinet.

'This cabinet does not look like Alberta'

Nope it's all rural. And like the rest of Canada rural Alberta is declining in population and increasing in age, it represents the old guard, while urban Alberta booms.

"It's Christmastime. All the rest of the province got Play- Station 3s and Edmonton and Calgary got socks and underwear," lamented NDP Leader Brian Mason.

And the Deputy Ministers are even bigger unknowns from the backbenches reperesnting rural Alberta.

And it's 'Honest' Ed's first broken promise.....

'Nobody is going to get left out'

Stelmach was also asked how he would reach out to Calgary because his support was stronger in Edmonton and rural Alberta.

"As a minister I've always found balance in how I looked after Edmonton and Calgary needs, and rural needs, and I'll continue to do that," he said.

"Nobody is going to get left out under my leadership."

Along with short-shanging Edmonton and Calgary he forgot to have someone from Fort McMurray in his cabinet. So much for being honest.

As I said this proves Ed Stelmach is the second coming of Harry Strom.

A second one party regime has ruled Alberta for thirty five years.And again political entropy has set in. The PC's are doomed like their Socred predecesors to repeat history.
