My friend Dave was elected Alberta Liberal leader on the weekend. He’s an amazing guy, and I believe he’s got what it takes to win.
He’s also got a few things in his favour:
- The ideological extremes are arrogant, and have (stupidly) left the Alberta political centre wide open
- The notion that a Liberal option is unelectable in Alberta is just not true – Trudeau showed everyone that in 2015, even in Calgary
- The Wildrose/PC internal battles aren’t over – they’re just starting. And the NDP remains very unpopular. There’s room for a smart, centrist Liberal option in Alberta – because Alberta has changed
The Alberta Party is a stalking horse for the Right and the Left. Khan’s Liberals are the only sensible option for modern Alberta.
Watch this guy.
