The man in the leather trench coat

Here's a sign the Tories are looking over their shoulders: At the Liberals' news conference at Edmonton's Winspear Centre Wednesday afternoon, one person in the crowd stood out.
The middle-aged white male looked uncomfortable to the point of nervous as Liberals clad in red scarves squealed at the sound of party leader Kevin Taft proclaiming, "It's time!"
I recognized that man in the back row. No wonder he was nervous. He was no Liberal — he was in fact a Tory operative, sent to watch the Liberals' every move.
I wouldn't have paid too much attention to him, except I'm told he showed up again this morning at another Liberal newser. Hmmm.
I wanted to speak to the man in the leather coat but as mysteriously as he appeared at the Winspear, he vanished. Perhaps he was on his way to another Liberal newser.
