Your vote in Wetaskiwin Camrose (less than 40,000 voters) is worth more than 50% than someone Living in Calgary North West (more than 60,000). There is no equality in Alberta.

The main reason Stelmach called the election this spring is because he did not want to face redistribution next year with reduced influence of rural lemmings.

So typical of a majority of Alberta's rural voters. They believe in democracy and equality only when it benefits them. By the way, are you still whining about Ontario have the bulk of the federal seats. FYI Ontario is Canada's most populous province, by quite a large margin.

Bernie,

So essentially you are saying that urban dwellers' votes are more important because they can "see the light" and that rural voters are simply holding back progress? Give me a break, democracy is all about each vote being equal.

Alberta rural politics is discouraging for urbanites watching this riding. Democracy will never happen in Alberta as long as we have staunch right wing rural voters who can't see the entire political picture.

Conservatives in Alberta cities have and are increasingly changing their vote to Liberal to allow for democratic renewal. 41 years of Conservatives, don't let that happen.

Whitecourt, Mayerthorpe, Wildwood, Evansburg, Sangudo, Gunn, Onoway--it's time to do what the generation before us did and vote for electoral reform.

Please show Canada that you are truly progressive and not ------!

People are talking about the Liberals gaining in Calgary, but I could see Link Byfield and the Wildrose Alliance giving Vandenburg a run for his money here. Very conservative Minister Trynchy held this riding for a long time. (Federally, this was a Reform seat during the conservative split; even Preston Manning vied for it when Joe Clark had it.)
