March XXth, MMXVII
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
So Brian Jean of the Wildrose & Jason Kenney of PC Alberta are meeting today to discuss getting their two parties merged. Political Students will note:
I. They have to agree on a timeline for merging.
II. They also have to agree to make overtures to Nolan Crouse once he becomes Alberta Liberal Party Leader. Nolan will bring fiscally Blue Liberal MLAs to the Alberta Legislature in the Paul Martin style, maybe 6-8. This total could be enough to nullify a combined conservative merged party & thus keep Premier Rachel Notley & the NDP in power another term.
III. If Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark was smart he'd try to enter negotiations as per the idea of Rev. William Wade Izzard of the Universal Life Church Canada First Nations Youth Outreach Ministries (& Edmonton-Centre Federal Liberal Candidate wanting to take the seat over from Randy Boissonnault, MP) & merge with Nolan to prevent him from combining with PC's & Wildrose.
