Tory week in review

February 11, 2008 | 08:44 AM
John ArcherJohn Archer

They're going to want to put out fires while they're still smoldering well in advance of visible flames.

The Stelmach bus will put on a lot of clicks this week. It starts with Edmonton-area campaigning Monday followed by a swing through Medicine Hat and Lethbridge before an end of the week stop in Fort McMurray.
