Wildrose Alliance wins Calgary-Glenmore byelection

This probably doesn’t mean much nationally: it’s neither a comment on the Harper Tories nor an implied endorsement of the federal LIberal party under Michael Ignatieff but this quote from the CBC’s article covering the Wildrose Alliance’s victory just made me laugh. The emphasis is mine.

“I’ve been a strong Conservative all my life like any normal Albertan,” voter Ellie Lucille Scott told CBC News. “But I think that people do need to be put on their toes a little bit and I think that’s the message I would like to see them get at this time.”
