Premier Alison Redford unveiled Alberta’s “rebooted” economic advisory board on Tuesday.
Alberta Premier Alison Redford has postponed her Tuesday meeting on the coast with her B.C. counterpart due to differences on the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline.

1) Premier Alison Redford is a dead Premier walking. She has lost the confidence of caucus, the story goes, and is in the death throes of her administration.
2) To position herself for a graceful exit, she is moving to the right to establish her national credentials as a fiscal and real conservative rather than the liberal lawyer with a funny hair do.
3) Doug Horner has been anointed her natural heir and successor, having secured the backing of the monied elite in Calgary and the support of caucus.
