Preston Manning turns up again on Alberta's sovereignty-association panel - 2019-11-10
Preston Manning is the bad penny of Canadian politics. So no one should be surprised he's turned up again!
Good rarely results from Manning's interventions in politics, which never seem to end, so don't expect positive results from his appointment by Alberta Premier Jason Kenney to what might accurately be called the Firewall Commission but will be officially known as the "Fair Deal Panel."
The nine-member panel is charged with finding ways to overcome Alberta's perpetual case of péquiste envy, thereby allowing this province to negotiate side deals with the rest of Canada like Quebec does, while asserting its imaginary right to run Confederation the way it wants notwithstanding the contrary wishes of voters in other provinces.
