I haven't seen this much flip-flopping since a Gull Lake trout hit the bottom of the boat. Or, as an old friend of mine once said, "He's trying so hard to avoid looking at the problem he looks like a tweaking rooster watching ping-pong."
Now under fire, Stelmach tried to explain himself in the Legislature.
"The reference here is to the pictures that are evidence in the trial that's before us and I was very frank to the reporter yesterday. I did not see those pictures at all prior to them being delivered to the court as evidence," Stelmach said during question period.
He's seen pictures, but not necessarily these pictures.
It just begs to be a comedy routine, doesn't it?
Yes, Ed. We know that you have lifted yet another idea from your inevitable replacements. Albertans are fully aware that the only unique ideas you and your government have implemented are such overwhelming failures as the Health Care 'superboard' and your economy-poisoning Royalty program.
When erroneous and unpopular policy is delivered by someone whose public image has deteriorated into a mix of one part aloof - one part pathetic, it kills any remaining trust the people have in the abilities of their government.
That is the point Alberta has now reached.
Drop the writ, Ed.
