Iffy Should Not Count on Alberta Provincial Cousins

Oooh, our Alberta provincial Liberal leader, David Swann is not exactly enamoured by his federal cousins.
“It helps us to define ourselves as quite separate from the federal Liberals, which in Alberta is not a bad thing,” Swann said Tuesday after issuing a statement criticizing the federal Liberals. “We are standing up for Alberta, and in this case, we are not in agreement with our federal Liberal party.”
Ouch! Who can blame the provincial Libs from wanting to separate themselves from their federal cousins?  They have a hard time the way it is to make any headway, nevermind associating themselves with the federal Libs.  We Albertans have not forgotten the  NEP that the federal Liberals imposed on us that was disastrous for businesses and individuals in the eighties.  We suffered through some tough times as a result. You got that  plus all that has occurred afterward within the federal Liberal party, (adscam, internal feuds, leader problems etc.)   you can see why they don't want to be linked to the federal party. Who would want to be associated with all that?
Smart move for Mr. Swann  for not wanting to be "kissin' cousins"  It would be poison if they were.

So Iffy, don't count on  your cousins in Alberta to help you out any time soon.  Just continue on with your Express bus tour and connect with the common people.


  1. On one hand Iffy rants about trade with Asia being vital, hops a plane to China (and of course runs down PMSH and Canada while there);
    and and at the first opportunity takes a stand against trade with China,
    but only if Alberta/Sask are involved,
    keeping with Liberal tradition.

    Iffy's Canada stops west of the Ontario border.

  2. What about the Alberta NDP, they should stand up for Alberta, her oil sands that provides the wealth for this country against NDP Duncan who brought in a private member's bill that can harm the future not only of the oilsands but businesses in general.

    Strange, they attack Alberta's oil sand yet refuse to attack Dalton for the BIG SMOKE pollution in Toronto or the Asbestos in Quebec.

  3. What about the Alberta NDP, they should stand up for Alberta,

    As far as I know, the Provincial NDs are close to their federal counterparts and believe much like them,Jen.


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
