Hey Dave. Thanks for live-blogging from the party, it was cool to follow along from Ottawa. This is such good news!

I echo the thanks for the liveblog, Dave.

Keeping up with AB elections from BC is no easy task, so your source is a welcome one.

Congrats on what was a well-run campaign. I'm obviously very dissapointed to see my good friend Mike Nickel defeated, but I suppose that's democracy... I guess Tony Caterina will be the new (only) tax-fighter on city council.

Dave - CHED wants to talk to Don. They said that he should call in. It's 496-0063 (I think).

Congrats to Don and his whole team Dave. Looks like you can call take a bow for such great work! I'll have to say Hi to Don and welcome him at the AUMA conference next month.
