Provincial Liberal Caucus Meets In Lethbridge

 
 
Lethbridge:  Provincial Liberal  leader David Swann and his caucus were in our city Friday for meetings with local officials and for their annual fundraiser.

   Swann reiterated, he's stepping aside, because his party needs to "get younger".   He says that's already happening, as the party now has the youngest executive in Edmonton.

  As for the next legislative session, which begins February 22nd, Swann expects it to be very brief -- perhaps just five or six weeks. During that time, he anticipates the primary focus will be the next provincial budget.

  Swann expects the governing Tories to be in a state of turmoil, now that Premier ed Stelmach has announced he's stepping down. With two government ministers already resigning their posts (Ted Morton and Doug Horner) so they can chase the Leadership, it's expected the Liberals may have some extra time to regroup and find a replacement for Swann.

  Lethbridge-East Liberal MLA Bridget Pastoor, believes the next leader will need to devote at least 10-years to rebuilding the party.  While Pastoor believes you should "Never say Never",  at this point, she doesn't feel she is willing to commit to that amount of time to the task.
