Ed Stelmach is an excellent premier. However, 53% of the popular vote means that 47% of votes went elsewhere. 88% of the seats going disproportionately to the Conservatives does not reflect the true choice of voters and provides the crack to develope into implosion of the province over time. It is disconcerting that the government of Alberta is now weaker with the loss of a strong opposition.
