      More like Progressive Conservative 2.0, left leaning edition, Dawg, at least according to what I've heard. Clark has always talked about the party being fiscally responsible while socially progressive. You may see multiple former PCs joining, as well as NDPrs who find the NDP way to far left. It should make the next election very interesting

        Yeah, Top_Dawg hears what you're saying Ustauk.

        But after the Klein years the Alberta PC party was gradually hijacked by what really were Liberals who knew they could never be elected as Liberals.

        So they wrapped themselves in PC blue.

        And now many of the same chalupa heads are agitating within the Alberta Party because they have very little to no influence within the Kenney led UCP.

            Top_Dawg can tell you what's in store.

            A sad spectacle of many of the same ol' retreads desperately trying to get their snout back in the trough.

                That's revisionist history. In fact, the PC party after Klein never went back to being as left-wing as it had been under Lougheed and even Getty.

                  The Alberta Pot Lobby has to put it's big time cash somewhere. Can't give it to the prohibitionist/holier than thou UCP and the NDP is already sick with pot smokers. And what's this? There's a bevy of former high-placed PC'ers working in Big Ganga - http://albertapolitics.ca/2017/11/no...hief-gone-pot/. The biggest strike against Greg Clark was he couldn't raise any money. Methinks it won't be a problem for the new Alberta Party.

                    Counting up the Alberta Party’s leadership candidates, real and imagined, so far: a partial list, no doubt

                      Will the Alberta Together takeover turn the Alberta Party into PC 2.0?

                            Greg Clark is not running for the leadership
                            From CBC News:
                            Originally posted by CBC News
                            Calgary-Elbow MLA Greg Clark has decided not to run again for leadership of the Alberta Party.
                            In an interview with CBC News on Thursday, Clark said he decided his family had to come first. Clark and his wife have two daughters, 10 and 13.
                            He said one of his girls talked to him about the leadership during a drive from Calgary to Edmonton.
                            "She talked to her sister and she said, 'Dad, we don't mind you being MLA,' " Clark recounted. "But we'd really like you not be leader so you could spend more time with us.
                            "The minute I heard that, that really made my decision for me."
                            Clark acknowledges that there will be party members who will be disappointed with his decision. He said he still plans to run in Calgary-Elbow in the 2019 election.
                            Clark was chosen party leader in 2013 and became the party's first elected MLA in 2015. Calgary-Mackay-Nose Hill MLA Karen McPherson joined the Alberta Party caucus several weeks after leaving the NDP.
                            Clark stepped down last month to trigger a leadership race. Sources told CBC he was pushed out by the party's board of directors.
                            Ryan Jespersen stated on his show this morning that he definitely is not seeking the leadership of the Alberta Party. He stated he love his job and his listeners, referenced himself having no political experience.

                              Plus he's a big enough tool I'm surprised he doesn't have "BLACK & DECKER" across his forehead.
                              Giving less of a damn than ever… Can't laugh at the ignorant if you ignore them!
