As a person who voted for her party instead of wild rose, I do regret that move but I don't regret not voting for the wild rose. Simply because I am a centrist by nature, and my choices were vote for the liberals who were at the time still rife with their own scandal, the NDP who were to far from center for my liking and horribly misguided, the wild rose who were too far the other way when it came to matters of civil rights so I was left with really one choice. If the wildrose party wants to ever be elected then they are going to have to teach their members to be a little less homophobic and watch what they say.
To be frank; I think they lost the last election due to their hate speech about gay rights. That's 100% why I didn't vote for them.
After their defeat I think they sort of learned their lesson the hardway..
Now that being said; I have seen the hatchet job the PC party has done in alberta first hand; AADL which provides funding for all amputee's in Alberta has been forced to adjust how they fund these programs that allow individuals to attain the prosthetic s they need to have a more normal life. This program costs roughly over half a million a year, and it covers every single amputee and persons with a disability in the province so naturally it needed to be killed with fire because clearly it was costing too much. Now the process to attain new prosthetics has been made much more complicated and is now running much more inefficiently and costs the province more then it had previously while removing choice from the people who depend on it.
Literally everything they touched even with the best of intentions has fallen apart systematically. Our former premier Mr. Klein is probably spinning in his grave right now, because even he knew there were certain programs that you absolutely do not mess with.
I have a checklist for the party I will vote for just like every other person on this board mine goes like this:
Must be financially responsible and realistic about budgets
Must be for public healthcare and wanting to shore it up
Must be for civil rights for all peoples (race/sexual orientation/religion/ etc..)
Must put Alberta and the people living in the province ahead of all other matters.
Fund arts and other needless expenses ahead of healthcare, schools, and other social programs that benefit the elderly, the infirm or children.
axe public healthcare or schooling
cross matters of church and state
If the Wildrose can keep certain party members mute this election cycle they will probably win it.

Dang boys she is probably depressed and going to all the shrinks that is paid for by the Alberta Tax Payer. She will milk the system till her demise. Then she will collect a big severance pay and full pension. That's the way it works.
Ain't no new news. Ya think Hancock is going to say anything bad? Another joker that should be punted.
