Don’t dump Stelmach, ex-rival urges Conservatives

Premier Ed Stelmach’s leadership of the Progressive Conservatives wastop of mind as elected members returned to the assembly for the fallsitting.

Premier Ed Stelmach’s leadership of the Progressive Conservatives was top of mind as elected members returned to the assembly for the fall sitting.

Sustainable Resources Min­ister Ted Morton yesterday said it would be a mistake to dump Stelmach wh­en the Tories hold a leadership review vote next week.

“So I'm encouraging my constituents and all PCs to vote against a leadership review on Nov. 7,” he said.

The comments from Morton, who lost the 2006 leadership race to Stelmach, seemingly laid to rest speculation he was waiting in the wings in case grumpy Tories push Stelmach aside.

Wildrose Alliance Leader Danielle Smith yesterday stood on the steps of the legislature and challenged the Tories. “When you look at the budget over the last year going from an $8 billion projected surplus to a $7 billion projected deficit, I think we need to see more conservative budgeting.”
