The polls certainly indicate that.

Came across a couple things that are encouraging today.  First, this seat projection here:  http://canadianelectionatlas.blogspot.ca/

Second, this is a lefty site, where the theory is, vote for whoever isn't conservative(ya, I know   ???  )   Anyway, the site posts ridings where they think Wildrose is not a sure thing, and this reinforces the first site.  http://changealberta.ca/winnablecandidates.aspx

There's always a bunch of good newspaper articles posted on bluecanada.ca as well.  Anyone who still thinks ratford is in any way conservative must have their head in the sand.

An interesting one that made me think of iggy:  http://okotoksnow.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/alison-redford-applied-for-south-african-citizenship-in-1995-and-claims-she-was-rejected-because-she-was-white/

Turns out ratford didn't even WANT TO LIVE IN ALBERTA!

We're only stuck with her because South Africa didnt' want her.  Wonder if they'd take her if we threw in some cash?   ;)

I'm still waiting for her, "Rise up Alberta" speech...........right before she buys another one way ticket to S. Africa   8)

Here is my prediction.

Wild Rosey gets in.
Albertans who are basically conservative (something right of centre) will not like the extreme right wing WR.  In the next election the ND party will make big gains.

I'll continue the fantasy.....

meanwhile in the States Ted Nugent becomes president and Alberta goes NDP.  Hunters in Alberta partner up with Ted and the boys and two days later all the Dippers and Libs in Alberta are run off to BC and eastern Canada. The western states separate and join up with Alberta and we rule the world forever.

It always amazes me how the left views itself as being in the center of the political spectrum, when in actual fact, parties like Wildrose are at best just barely right of center. 

The left always likes to forget that Hitler was a socialist, not really that far left of where most of the, "centralist" parties are.  The left also fails to remember that whenever a socialist gov't get's true power, bad things happen.

But of course, the redford pcs, the liberals, the ndp, they're, "much" different.........they just want to legislate how you live, what you think, what you own, how you spend your money, what you can and can't teach your own children...........etc.

Keep your left, I'll keep my freedom.

Unfortunately I don't feel the WR party will give a second look to our outdoor resources...  If they do, most likely will put a value on this resource and sell to the private sector to balance the budget and allow Dannie Bucks to role out to the general population.

Everybody's free to have whatever "feelings" they want, I guess.

I'd rather look at facts with an open mind, but that's just me.

I wish I could find "facts" in the WR platform regarding this resource, unfortunately I have not been able to secure anything concrete.  Multiple letters to my WR representatives have not been answered..   Sure the PC's have not been stellar in this department, but today we still enjoy this resource and open spaces in this province are abundant currently.   Not sure what the future will bring, I just pray our future generations have at a minimum what we have today.

TUK,

Thanks for the link, but really no plan there..   I could pick this apart, but not my place here to do this.. 

Does anyone know if there will be a budget for a pheasant release program in Alberta if the WR gains power ?   Too late now to expect a hatchery to have close to 15000 birds ready of October..   What about the idea of Dam's ?   Where will these be and how will they effect our fisheries ?    Is the WR going to accept a program where land owners are charging for tags and access ?     How does the WR party feel about the sportsmen and women in general ?   

The WR party wants to open up or expediate industry, how will this affect us when the native grass lands are sold and turned under, potatogate may be back before we know it, this time, couple months the area is turned under, no turning back then..

Lot of questions really, can't find solid answers other than less hurdles for industry to move forward..     Checks and balances are an important part on a go forward basis, not a quick rubber stamp and then regret in the future..

Look at what is going on in Saskatchewan with the new ultra right wing approach on the grazing leases..   Scary scary stuff...

This should answer some of your questions.

http://www.wildrose.ca/policy/agriculture/

http://www.wildrose.ca/policy/environment/

Wildroses's platform is completely laid out, all you have to do is look.  The pc's may change their story every 5 minutes, but Wildrose's platform has always been an open book and will always remain so.  Wildrose candidates come from all walks of life, and are not career politicians.  Many are outdoorsman/women.

Forget the pathetic rhetoric the pc's and the left leaning media is slinging in desperation.  If you actually look, and read, the choice is clear.

For anything more specific, simply ask your local Wildrose candidate, although at this late date he/she may be pretty busy.  Too bad you hadn't asked a month ago, you could have sat down with your Wildrose candidate and conversed at your leisure.

It will be a historic day.

Go wild. :)

ps:  The local WR candidate has already made a written comittment to bump the Pheasant release program.  The PC's talk about a "partnership" with private interests. :-[  Do the math.

I don't know if your a new resident of Alberta or not, but this is exactly what the P.C. gov't has been trying to do for the last few years.
