A Modest Proposal for progressive cooperation in Alberta | Mar 1 2015 | Susan Wright | Sacrificing party loyalty? A small price to pay for humanity, surely.

A number is never just a number: Voter turnout -- how low can we go? | Jun 13 2014 | Hennessy's Index | At 52.1 per cent, the percentage of voters who cast a ballot in the 2014 Ontario election is up from the province's 2011 historic low of 48 per cent. How does it fit into voter turnout across Canada?

B.C. teachers' math lesson: workers + labour rights = stability | Mar 14 2014 | H.G. Watson | Negotiations between B.C. and its teachers' union is one more example of how governments create instability by dismantling labour rights.
And the winner is … no one: Everybody missed Monday's biggest story | Nov 28 2012 | David Climenhaga | The real story went largely unexamined -- to wit, the wretched voter turnout. It's pretty obvious that a clear majority of electors truly didn't give a hang about who governs them, or how.
EXCLUSIVE! Calgary Centre and Stephen Harper's Canada bashing fallout! Did I say exclusive? | Nov 24 2012 | David J. Climenhaga | We Albertans would do well to send more than just a phalanx of parochial and inward-looking neoconservatives to Ottawa.
Look at the conservatives grow! Breaking down the Wildrose Alliance political doctrine, part 1 | Jun 7 2012 | Thomas Saczkowski | Soon enough we will hear a great deal more about the Wildrose Alliance. This article details how the Alliance represents growing conservatism in Canada.

Lethbridge could produce surprising results in Alberta's election | Apr 16 2012 | Jenn Prosser | The Calgary and Edmonton battlegrounds are widely reported on but in Lethbridge, a very interesting thing is happening. For the first time in two decades there is an unsteadiness shaking the campaign.
Alberta Premier Presumptive Gary Mar
Where will Gary run? A good question to ask on the Alberta campaign trail... | Sep 24 2011 | David J. Climenhaga | Now that his leadership of the Alberta Conservative Party is all but assured, where will Gary Mar run for the Alberta Legislature?
Wildrose Party Energy Critic Paul Hinman
U.S. opposition to the Keystone XL Pipeline: It's not what you think it is | Sep 20 2011 | David J. Climenhaga | If the Keystone XL Pipeline flops, Alberta's Wildrosers will need to remember it's not the fault of easy-to-vilify environmentalists, or Conservative Gary Mar for that matter.
Introducing rabble's Activist Toolkit | Sep 16 2011 | Paula Millar | Our wiki-style Toolkit aims to be a space for activist collaboration. Home to a wealth of resources, the content is organized according to 'tooltype' -- each unique in its contribution.
A third new Liberal leader pending, but the same old problems | May 17 2011 | Duncan Cameron | The Liberal Party's demise has been long coming. Without a base in any region, or a strong party membership, or even an easy to identify party philosophy, who will solve their problems?
Quebec MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau
Two words to put the Ruth Ellen Brosseau brouhaha in perspective: 'Rob Anders' | May 17 2011 | David J. Climenhaga | Never mind the one-note song the media has been singing. With many strong leaders in the NDP's Quebec caucus, it's a safe bet that over the next four years, it will prove to be very effective.
Canada's real electoral map: A surge for the left | May 10 2011 | Jesse McLaren | There has been a shift in consciousness. Looking at the NDP and the combined Tory/Liberal vote, a picture emerges of an eroding but concentrated corporate vote, and a surging NDP vote.
Who speaks for Alberta in this federal election? | Apr 30 2011 | Diana Gibson | Alberta's premier, Ed Stelmach, has been joining the chorus that is imagining risks of a federal NDP government. But who is he speaking for?
NDP Leader Jack Layton in Edmonton last night
Quintessentially Canadian Layton casts orange glow on Edmonton | Apr 28 2011 | David J. Climenhaga | It's not really NDP energy policies the Conservatives are attacking, but a fictitious caricature of an environmentally responsible approach to developing the oil sands.
