Never mind the details for a moment, this is all you really need to know about Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's constitutionally meaningless Senate elections law, introduced as Bill 13 in the provincial legislature yesterday.

Kenney has presented Alberta's progressives, of whom there are many, and the politicians they support with a wonderful opportunity to shoot themselves in both feet in a little over two years.

On October 17, 2021 -- the day the non-binding vote required by the Senatorial Selection Act is to take place -- we shall duly do so, I regretfully predict.
