Replying to’s nap-time for WreckItRalph , he’s been working hard...more like, hardly working. This career politico has found a way to stumble and bumble along only like a true Liberal can.

Mr. Westhead: The Wildrose leader’s contempt for public servants is only compounded by his demands to unilaterally impose wage freezes and toss collective bargaining out the window, something Wildrose previously opposed during the Bill 46 debate . . . [interjections]

The Speaker: Order, please.

Mr. Westhead: . . . demonstrating just how far to the right they’ve shifted.

Mr. Yao: Easy, commie. [interjections]

Here, I’ll save everyone in Canada’s media and political culture a lot of time and effort and spell this out: the oil needs to stay in the fucking ground. Anyone who says different is lying to you.

Sucks if you work in the oil industry, but it will suck a whole hell of a lot harder for everyone if you keep drilling.

Mr. Dreeshen: Just to comment on the Deputy Premier’s comment about my by-election in Innisfail-Sylvan Lake, yes, it is true that I got over 80 per cent of the vote and the NDP did get less than 10 per cent of the vote in that by-election. I think her point was that not over 50 per cent of everyone in the riding actually voted and that the turnout was low. Again, I would like to remind her that it was the Premier that called that by-election during the middle of summer. It was the heart of July and it…

Ms Luff: I myself lived, I suppose, in a common-law relationship for 12, 13 years before my husband and I decided to get married, much to the consternation of my grandmother.

Dr. Starke: Was it the getting married part?

Ms Luff: The getting married part, yeah. She wanted it to happen before she died. I think that was the concern that she had. She liked my husband very much.

Ms Ganley: Madam Speaker, I suppose it is somewhat of a lawyer thing to be excited about the orderly and sane and rational resolution of disputes, but I must say that I’m very excited to move this bill forward. I think it will help a number of Albertans to have clear rules to allow them to resolve their debates more quickly and, at the end of the day, to not get into legal battles that will ultimately be very trying for them and very trying for their families.

Mr. Barnes: The office was informed of it Monday, November 19, the day before the minister introduced the bill in the House. I don’t know. It’s sort of like breaking up by text maybe.

Ms Hoffman: What do you know about that?

Mr. Barnes: I’m married 31 years. I know little.

Mrs. Aheer: The other thing, too, that I wanted to mention, from the member across the way, is that you talk about the metaphor. A metaphor is saying one thing is like another, correct? I’m assuming that you are trying to put us into a metaphor of whatever it was that you were talking about, about the past and past decisions.
