Does anybody seriously think Alberta needs another election right now?
Yeah, I know, Premier Jim Prentice and his Progressive Conservative legislative caucus want one.
But do we need one, right at this particular moment?
With a buzz in the air that since an election suits Prentice we're going to get one whether we wish it or not, a surprising number of Albertans are expressing the view an early election this spring is not at all what our province needs.
The generally accepted best practice for Westminster-style parliamentary democracies like we have in Canada is for a general election to be held every four years.
