With the Alberta provincial election calls just days away, it sure seems that things are getting a bit testy in Edmonton! I laughed so hard at the Edmonton Journal story about Wildrose MLA Rob Anderson's tussle with a female sherrif at the legislature yesterday. In what can only be described as a severe "diva" moment, the Airdrie MLA intentionally parked in Premier Redford's assigned parking stall, only to have a fit when the sheriff demanded ID and asked him to move.
In the story link above, you can see that Mr. Anderson feels that he is an important man and really is above reproach. A civilized person would have apologized and simply moved the vehicle to his own assigned spot. Perhaps he has been watching too many episodes of "Parking Wars" on A&E and thinks its OK to belittle Sheriffs who are assigned to provide security.
I think that since he feels he is the de facto leader of the WRP that he is entitled to "test drive" the premiers spot and imagines he will in fact be the Premier one day. Unfortunately, the thirty second park job is about as close as he will actually come to filling the Premier's shoes.
It should be an interesting month!
