    How can you do that? Are you personally responsible for the gatekeeping of membership?

    By suggesting that you pass a conservatism test before you can vote.

    This is starting to feel very circular…

    So like a cheat sheet that everyone got their DL with back in the day (may be even valid today?) and never read a single paragraph in the handbook?

    Or are you going the Chinese route and ranking conservative rhetoric posts on social media?

    BJ is a threat to Kenney regardless what the left is doing or otherwise he won't try to drown him out with easing restriction news.

    Should just need to provide your banking statements. Pretty obvious to see if you're fiscally responsible or a Chrystia Freeland.

    If a simple quiz is all it takes to gatekeep, answer key will be ready within hours if you think the left want to screw with the UCP leadership contest.

    That's before how UCP member fight among themselves on the questions and how it exclude their candidate's potential supporting members.

    I was reading one article that two ridings of Fort Mac have 2,000 registered members of the UCP while there's only ~10-30k (conflicting numbers) members total. So basically those two ridings have a massive voting influence on the party politics. Kinda feels like it's a lot more valuable to get into the party level politics than provincial level voting.

    Today I learned that a provincial MLA Minister makes so little money that it's worth obviously losing your job trying to weasel out of a Distracted driving ticket that's worth - what - $600?

    What a complete fucking moron!

    This seems like a stupid story for something that happened a year ago. If this is all true, I think the guy had a valid reason to bitch. He just went about it the wrong way and got caught (a year later).

    https://globalnews.ca/news/8518385/a...et-phone-call/

    Earlier in the evening, Madu issued a statement about the ticket he received last year and why he called Edmonton’s police chief about it after.

    “To be abundantly clear, at no point did I request that the ticket be rescinded,” Kaycee Madu said in a statement issued Monday night. “I would never do that.

    “However, in that particular call, I regret raising the issue at all with the (Edmonton Police Service) Chief (Dale) McFee.”

    Global News first reached out to Madu’s office for comment on the matter Monday afternoon after CBC News broke the story about both the ticket and the phone call to McFee.

    Global News has obtained a copy of the ticket Madu was issued. In a section of the ticket that says “description,” an officer had written in “distracted driving- cellphone.” The ticket says the alleged offence occurred at 9:25 a.m. in a school zone.

    In a statement issued to Global News, the EPS confirmed Madu was handed a distracted driving ticket on March 10, 2021. However, further details about the incident were not disclosed.

    “Minister Madu had concerns about the context of the traffic stop,” an EPS spokesperson said. “To be clear, he did not ask the chief to rescind the ticket.

    “The ticket remains valid and was issued correctly.”

    Madu said he paid the ticket “promptly” and in full and added he has “the utmost respect for our men and women in uniform, and for the invaluable, often thankless role they perform.”

    “On the morning of March 10, shortly after leaving my home, I was pulled over by an officer of the Edmonton Police Service,” he said in his statement. “The officer indicated that he had observed me driving while distracted, alleging that I was on my phone. I disagreed, stating that I was not on my phone, as it was in an inside pocket.

    “Later, I spoke to Chief Dale McFee. Due to the timing of the incident, I wanted to ensure that I was not being unlawfully surveilled following the controversy surrounding the Lethbridge Police Service. I also raised concerns around profiling of racial minorities that was in the media at the time.

    “Chief McFee assured me that that was most definitely not the case, and I accepted him at his word,” said Madu, who is Black.
