I can't believe Horner supporters didn't list Alison as 2nd choice!

My last post automatically posted 1/2 way through. Anyway, re: "Can ANYONE who is putting down the PC party because of Mar." In a nutshell, Gary Mar told me that privatization of "certain aspects" of the health care system was necessary to address the current crisis. When asked of user fees, he didn't say no, but when asked about simply reinstating the Health Care Premiums that Ed Stelmach had abolished as an easy remedy and so as to add some much needed money in to the health care system, he changed the topic, twice. So, why would I not like the PC's if Mar was the King? I don't like greedy, "for-profit" people like Gary Mar ruining a good political party like what the Progressives used to be: fiscally responsible, looking after ourselves and our neighbours and not sticking our noses into other people's business.

For what its worth - Horner paid for my membership before round 1, so why is Mar so evil? In fact Horner paid for mine, my families, and 6 other memberships for my friends. On that note - I voted for Mar!For what its worth - Horner paid for my membership before round 1, so why is Mar so evil?

I think it is too soon for anyone to think it is in any bag. The candidates are all quite diverse and it will be interesting to see the outcome. We've all has our say...now let's see our democratic process at work. Stop the mudslinging too.

And it is not in the bag, Tyler. It is completely possible that he will win - however Allison can not be counted out yet!

@GlobalEdmonton all PC Leadership candidates are to be commended
@ Swoot...I agree and after agreeing not to do that! Definately not someone who keeps their word!!!

He is in the lead because a lot of lemmings who don't care enough to check voted for him. People who were told and were influenced to vote for him. They are not thinking for themselves, and don't really care who wins.

Redford doesn't know there's a population base outside of Edmonton and Calgary.

It's called buying votes. That is why he is in the lead.
