Alberta Education's recent deal with the Calgary Catholic School Board to swap an old school for a brand new one in the northwest subdivision of Hidden Valley has left some people wondering whether all neighbourhoods are created equal. At the beginning of September, residents of Hidden Valley got the news that a new school would open in their neighbourhood in 2000. Good news for them, but bad news for the occupants of an independent school whose building got traded away to Alberta Education in the bargain. As far as anyone knows, it is just a coincidence that the new school is being built to the benefit of people in the riding of Education Minister Gary Mar.

Agreed on the "can't stand Ted" comment. I like Gary Mar but Ted Morton throwing his suppport behind him after the first ballot didn't do Gary any favors.

Another reason to remember that exercising your right to vote is important at all times. I wonder how many people did not vote because they assumed the front runner would win?

gotta wonder about the folks in those last two ridings ... come on, guys, it's just arithmetic. if it takes you guys five hours to tally up the check marks, i'm not sure your votes deserve to be counted ... (just kidding)

are they already counted or do we have to wait for the second choice to be counted?

Thomas Likaszuk said Gary's campaign was flawless... The Busses were improper, but I guess if you are part of the old boys club there are certain... Liberties...

I think those threatening to withdraw their memberships if so and so wins give us a good idea of how they think democracy works
