Will the PCs Do Better This Time Around?

After a tumultuous early 2014, Alison Redford is resigning as Premier of Alberta.

After surviving the challenge from Danielle Smith and the Wildrose Alliance, Redford has fallen to her own political hubris.

Now the Progressive Conservative Party must choose another new leader and another new Premier. And as candidates are sure to begin lining up to assume the reins of power in the province, one question should be on Albertans minds:

Will they do better this time around?

This means more than simply doing better than Redford. The last time the PCs held a leadership contest vast portions of the province never saw a single visit from a leadership candidate.

With the next Premier, all Albertans -- including PC party members -- deserve the opportunity to do what they did not have the opportunity to do prior to Redford's ascension to office: vet the candidates for Premier in person.

Perhaps then the Progressive Conservatives can spare themselves the unmitigated disaster the Alison Redford Premiership has been.
