Joseph McCarthy
Controversial Wildrose leaflet had similarities to B.C. Liberals' Chinese-language ads smearing NDP | Sep 3 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Wildrose Leader Brian Jean won't repudiate offensive allegations made in a Chinese-language election brochure distributed in the Calgary-Foothills byelection.
Prasad Panda
Will Wildrose Leader Brian Jean repudiate Calgary-Foothills candidate's 'communist' characterization of NDP? | Sep 2 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Wildrose Leader Brian Jean owes it to Albertans to actively repudiate his candidate's language in the strongest terms possible.
Brian Jean
Wildrose leader on stump for Harper assails NDP minister for campaigning for Mulcair | Aug 27 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Speaking of irritating and hypocritical comments from Alberta's opposition parties as they campaign openly for the Conservatives' re-election, there was Wildrose Leader Brian Jean's news release.
Bob Hawkesworth
NDP strength in Calgary-Foothills riding could rattle federal Tory narrative | Aug 26 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | If Bob Hawkesworth and the NDP come from behind Sept. 3 to pull off a byelection victory in Calgary-Foothills, the idea winds of change really are blowing in Canada will be much harder to dismiss.

Craig B. Chandler
Alberta oil patch firebrand's campaign against Linda McQuaig will (probably) backfire | Aug 17 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | If anyone can get Linda McQuaig into the House of Commons, Craig B. Chandler's the man!
Jason Kenney
When propaganda becomes memory: Pierre Trudeau and the National Energy Program | Aug 9 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Jason Kenney tells Canadians that Pierre Trudeau single-handedly destroyed the energy economy of Alberta. He was only 13 at the time, so he may even believe it!
No losers except Canadians in last night's ditchwater-dull debate | Aug 7 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Last night everybody won -- except Canadians, who need and deserve conventional television debate, high on the dial at an appropriate moment.
Donald Trump
Is it good news or bad news for the Conservatives if Stephen Harper trumps Trump tonight? | Aug 6 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Republican candidate Donald Trump is presumably just putting on his rage to appeal to a generation brought up on The Apprentice. As for PM Stephen Harper, it's not nearly as clear.
Stephen Harper
This just in: PM calls early election…I mean, calls election early…What could possibly go wrong? | Aug 3 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Could Prime Minister Stephen Harper be asking, this time, too much of an electorate he treats like a bunch of dummies? Naw… What could possibly go wrong?

Crowd at Alberta Legislature
Sunshine, ice cream and a mellow multitude of 10,000 or so usher in the NDP era in Alberta | May 25 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Near the end of her remarks, Ms. Notley observed: "My friends, it is springtime in Alberta and a fresh wind is blowing." That assessment seems about right!
Jim Prentice
Whither Alberta's Progressive Conservatives? Nowhere, probably … | May 14 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | If I were setting the NDP's agenda, I would place that promised ban on corporate and union donations right at the very top of my legislative to-do list!
Keep on going... we are making a difference | May 14 2015 | Maya Bhullar | Taking action forced changes on the tax on tampons, Bill C-51, and, of course, in Alberta. Don't stop now!
Not Rex: On the plan for Albertastan | May 14 2015 | Humberto DaSilva | CBC TV had barely called an NDP majority government in Alberta when Minister of Justice Peter MacKay declared the province Albertastan!
