As a rather Liberal chap I'm not interested in merging with the NDP. Todd Van Vliet, party president of the Alberta Liberals, isn't a fan either. There was one point, almost a year ago, that I was. And I was quite frustrated then. I'm still frustrated.. But I'm tired of hitting a brick wall
To say that this guy is controversial is an understatement. Stories roll of his tongue like chapters of a rags-to-riches novel.
