The National Post’s Jen Gerson doesn’t think Wildrose extremism matters

Alberta voters, apparently, have a different view. Wildrose has got wasted vote in rural areas; the PCs have vote where it matters most, on the seat count.

The final weekend in Alberta will be like the final weekend, federally, in 2004.  No less than Tom Flanagan has written about how that turned out.


  1. Llokah says:

    Anybody who votes for the Nazi Wildrose Party should be charged with hate speech violations.

    • DavidA says:

      Make way for Godwin!

      But seriously, wouldn’t Warren want Wildrose to win? It would make it easier for the LPC to run against Alberta, maybe pick up everything they lost in Ontario/Quebec?

  2. Dan says:

    So best case, a PC party on its way into political exile, able to hang onto a few extra seats based on fear.

    I doubt Redford would be happy with that analogy.

    Can you imagine the things Wild Rose and Alberta PCs would be arguing about in a minority government? Progressives will feel like they’re in crazy land…

    • Jon Adams says:

      “He who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”

    • WesternGrit says:

      It’ll get crazier if the Wildrose have a slim minority and need a seat from one of the smaller parties to get a majority… Heads… explode…

      • Neil says:

        It will not be crazy at all Herman. It will take about 2 days for enough PC’s to cross and give the wildrose the majority. In this election there isno such thing as a wildrose minority.

  4. Nurie Jahangeer says:

    I suspect that Jen Gerson, most likely being an over privileged, Canadian born and bred, unilingual, unhyphenated, highly assimilated Canadians of WHITE ANGLO SAXON PROTESTANT ethnocultural origin, who was most likely born with a gold spoon in her mouth; would be unable to understand what it is like to be a victim of racism, classism, xenophobia or homophobia.

    Despite the fact that Canada is officially a bilingual and multicultural nation-state which is close to 25% visible minority
    and is officially projected to be majority non-White by the year 2050, with Ontario and British Columbia being majority
    non-White by the year 2032; the vast majority of Canadian politicians, journalists, and media personalities tend to remain
    disproportionately WASP and largely pontificate on contemporary socio-economic issues from a WASP-ish, suburban and middle class perspective.
