Resisting the pull of cynicism since 1969.

The king is dead, who's gonna be king?

The Edmonton Journal and the Globe and Mail (as well as newspapers across the country, no doubt, and countless Alberta bloggers) are reporting that Ralph Klein received only 55% of the vote last night at the Alberta provincial convention for his party. He'd intended to stay premier until 2007 or even 2008, but since this result, he likely has other plans.

Assuming that this isn't some rather elaborately concocted collective April Fool's joke, the provincial political scene in Alberta just got a little more interesting.
