This afternoon Prime Minister Stephen Harper joined Premier Ed Stelmach, federal Environment Minister Jim Prentice and Mayor Dave… what?… what’s that? Bronconnier wasn’t at the Calgary ring road funding announcement? But it’s the Calgary ring road. All three levels of government are putting up the cash for it. Where the heck is the mayor? Deputy mayor? Or an alderman of any kind? I don’t see any of these folks in the ‘platform party’ photos.

Maybe we sent this sleepy/bored Roads worker instead to represent the City instead.

BTW, is this really one of the best photos you have of the event? Aside from the City worker it looks like the two speakers are about to fall asleep too. Maybe Bronco knew this and decided he had better things to do than nod off in a SE Calgary hanger.
