Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

RIP Peter Lougheed

I remember Peter Lougheed mainly as a young boy interested in politics sparring with Pierre Trudeau over the Constitution and to a lesser extent the National Energy Program. I now see him as what a traditional “Progressive’ Conservative would look like – taking the oil revenues he raised and putting a large chuck of that into social programs, infrastructure and so on. He also recently in the past year or two decried the rapid tar-sand expansion that was taking place at all costs, without thinking through the consequences. There aren’t enough of his kind in today’s Conservative Party, that is for certain.
