Who’s blowing in whose ear?

Right. Red Deer First says it has no ties to Wildrose or the Manning Centre (Advocate, Oct. 5, 2013.)

We are asked to believe that renting signs from the Wildrose Party, thus helping to pay for them, is a neutral, inconsequential act.

Believe further: the wife of a Wildrose official is running on the Red Deer First ticket is some sort of coincidence. It’s all just neighbourly grassroots dedication.

Question: Why did Red Deer First not rent, and thus help pay for, signs from the NDP, Liberals, Alberta Party, Green Party, Social Credit or anyone other than Wildrose?

Red Deer First’s anti-tax, anti-government, indifferent-to-the-environment and related policies betray their associations just as well as a cheque in their bank account or Preston Manning blowing in their ears.
