Nine Wildrose MLAs have just bolted to the Alberta PCs

After a day of closed-door caucus meetings, the big news has just broken. Nine Wildrose MLAs, including ex- leader Danielle Smith, have bolted to the governing PCs. That’s a number equal to the entire opposition in Saskatchewan.

A news conference is due to begin in a half hour.

So there it is, a mass floor-crossing. And if you want to make sense of all this seeming nonsense in Alberta. look no further than the thoughts of Colby Cosh.
