With a week to go before Albertans cast their ballots, it is important that the records and views of candidates from all parties be looked at closely. In Calgary—Bow, the Wildrose candidate is Trevor Grover. Curiously, in his Wildrose biography, he makes no mention of his previous political runs for office. In particular, Wildrose makes no mention of his run for the fringe Canadian Action Party - http://cts.vresp.com/c/?PCAlberta/3a553ebd7d/48c9749f41/e85bdfcec9 , a party that proposes bizarre monetary policy and tearing up free trade agreements. Highlights from the 2006 Canadian Action Party manifesto - http://cts.vresp.com/c/?PCAlberta/3a553ebd7d/48c9749f41/91fc2630cb : “The Canadian Action Party’s two most urgent priorities are: The abrogation of NAFTARestoring money creation to the Bank of Canada”“scientific studies on Genetically Modified Organisms, irradiation and vaccines”“select one or two new city cites (sic) - perhaps one in the west and one in the east - as part of an overall, comprehensive land-claims agreement. New cities that would be designed, built, operated and governed by Aboriginal peoples.” Why did Trevor Grover campaign on aboriginals being segregated into their own cities? Why did he campaign on further scientific study on vaccines? Does he still believe in these fringe policies? Does Brian Jean believe a candidate who fought to kill free trade and interfere in monetary policy should be a Wildrose MLA?
