What is more important here? Who the candidate is affiliated with, or that candidate's passion, knowledge and committment to political change? Given those criteria, I think Joe Anglin is the standout candidate. How often do you get the chance to vote for someone who has had the courage to take on the entire established system, invest all he's got, and had the skills and backing of the common man to make the EUB, AltaLink and AESO back down? Have a look at the hansards... every intelligent, independent voice is sorely needed in the legislature.

I think voting for this new political party is a "safe choice" for Albertans.

The NDP and the Liberal Party are too scary.

Wildrose Alliance is very similar to the old style Progressive Conservative Party during the former premier Peter Lougheed's era.

The present PC Party has swayed too far to the left and becoming more like the NDP.

Former premier Peter Lougheed would never try to change legal signed royalty agreements.
Instead, he would let the old agreements run to expiry dates and then he negotiate in a fair and a honorable manner.

If Joe Anglin is a one trick pony likewise is Ed Stelmach-the PC man has less education than the average constituent in my riding.

In reply to David of Bashaw's "one-trick pony" comment: None of the other candiates for this riding have even one trick, let alone more. I see Joe Anglin as a candidate with great potential to help our riding get with the times and work on the real issues Albertans are faced with. One thing I am sure of about him is that nothing about him is stuck in that out-dated Conservative habit of denying reality. It is important to realize that denial of reality is the first big symptom of dysfunction and ill health. To move towards health for all - people and environment - we all need to first admit that there are problems, but even if we don't know all the answers right now, we are open to brainstorming for solutions. I believe that is the way Joe would operate on our behalf.

The Green candidate could be elected. He's easily the expert on Bill 46. In fact his own literature says the NDP and Liberals asked him for help on that issue.

But that is his only expertise. He's a one trick pony with no hope of sitting on the government benches even if were to be elected.

This is too important for a 'feel-good' protest vote.

With Marc's point, is there any chance the credential-loaded Green candidate could get elected?

One important issue that I would like to see at the forefront this election is the AEUB scandal, which happened right here in our backyard. This government spied on its own citizens! Very little was done to hold on the board of directors responsible for spending over $20,000 on agents to spy on Albertans. This government has been on the side of industry far too long and needs a wake up call!
