I had a dream. And no, it was not like Martin Luther King's dream, which was far more serious and important. No, this was a dream, borne out of despair and lost hope. Let me explain. I dreamed an impossible dream (kind of like the song, of the same name). I thought, what if the Alberta government would cut a deal with the federal Bloc Quebecois and the ruling Coalition Avenir Québec

    Dave, I have a Wildrose Independence Party membership to sell you. It’s only $10 for one year. Our future depends on a Strong and Free Alberta. In fact a Strong and Free Western Canada.

    I’m thinking with Quebec & a past Montreal Mayor who visited Iran, that raised many eyebrows. Alberta will always be the outside province when it comes to Quebec for oil & gas.

Apparently the meeting was quick, but strategic discussions went well into the night before the Executive Committee (EC) of the UCP agreed upon the rules to set out for a future leadership review for Jason Kenney.

MORGAN: Free speech in comedy under siege

“What has happened to our society when a comedy festival may turn into a street battle? “

Standup comedians have always been on the front lines in battles over free speech and expression. In the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, most of the pearl-clutching busybodies came from the 'moral majority' religious right.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
