Alberta Liberals grow cojones

Yet another sign Alberta politics are suddenly interesting: A dynamite political ad

by

Sleek, hard-hitting and from an unlikely source—the Alberta Liberals, whose leader David Swann frowns upon heckling in the legislature—this campaign-style attack ad arrives just days after Danielle Smith captured the leadership of the right-wing Wildrose Alliance Party. If Smith’s ascendancy appears to have caught the Stelmach Tories flatfooted—as though they couldn’t see that one coming—it has energized the provincial Liberals, who are now employing exaggeration (does Alberta really have a $10 billion deficit?) and cloak-and-daggerisms (what is the albertaliberalcaucus, really?) with abandon.
