Alberta Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith unveiled her party's campaign bus in Edmonton

Placement of wheels on Wildrose Alberta election bus attract attention

Alberta Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith’s unveiling of her campaign bus in Edmonton has gone viral on Twitter — but not for any reasons related to the upcoming election.

EDMONTON — Alberta’s Wildrose party campaign bus is getting a repaint after the first version went viral for its unintended display of leader Danielle Smith’s twin tire decolletage.

Party spokesman Shannon Stubbs says Smith had a good laugh over the bus fuss, but the vehicle needs to be redone so that it doesn’t become a campaign distraction.

Stubbs says there’s no timeline for when the bus will be back on the road, but she expects it won’t be long.

The bus features the Wildrose logo along with a torso picture of Smith — the bus’s two rear wheels over her chest.

Comments on Twitter ranged from pre-adolescent chortles and jokes to those urging people to grow up.

Premier Alison Redford unveiled her bus last month with a picture of her in the middle — away from the wheels.
