My MLA is a floor-crosser. Is yours?

Alberta Conservatives want what they want. At this time, they want their power back and they don’t seem to care what they must do to get it.

Rigging the system so the disgraced PC MLAs become Alberta’s Official Opposition is a desperate step to try and achieve that end.
I, nor anyone I know in the Cypress-Medicine Hat Constituency, voted for our  MLA Drew Barnes to cross-the-floor to this up-start party — one with no policies.
I believe each MLA, Wildrose or PC that chose to cross the floor to join the UCP should sit as an Independent MLA until the next election.
Only PC MLA Richard Starke showed principled  judgment by retaining his elected party affiliation.
MLA Barnes’ disdain for the great floor-crossing of 2014 certainly doesn’t seem to have affected his actions here.
MLA Barnes, you were elected to  represent all the Albertans in your riding, you sir are sitting as Her Majesty’s Official Opposition, which comes with additional financial resources and ergo ought to reflect a higher standard than that of a mere opposition MLA.
You Drew, do not get to make these most important decisions. We the people you represent do — all the people, not just your selected few. Hypocrisy, say hello to my MLA Drew Barnes.
