getting around.

- They get around. CBC has an interactive map tracking recent junkets by PC Cabinet Ministers.

- I've heard that oil companies are continuing to buy farmland to build Upgraders near Redwater, so I wasn't surprised to read this story.

- Jason Morris at Gauntlet.ca has written up an easy to follow timeline following the RCMP raids of Alberta Justice and Service Alberta offices. More here.

- The Canadian Political Science Students' Association (CPSSA) are holding their national conference in Edmonton from February 4 to 7th. Hosted by the University of Alberta Political Science Undergraduate Association, the conference, 'Challenges to Peace,' will feature speakers from across Canada.

- Ken Chapman has written an interesting post on bonuses in the bailed out banking industry.

Good Link on the Travel Map. I do note that the site confirms that all travel expenditures are disclosed and that the purpose of the trip is clearly defined. I think that this travel is fine and I didnt see any golf junkets on the list, lol.

Did you notice the only two sources for information in the entire story were an official with the economic development department and an official with the energy department. I think it's a spin job.
