Three promise-breaking Redford performances nominated for political "Oscar"

EDMONTON – Three promise-breaking performances by Alberta Premier Alison Redford are eligible to win the "Oscar" for "Best Actor in a Political Leadership Role" at a special public ceremony in Edmonton Sunday.

Participants in the March 2 outdoor public "Political Academy Awards" ceremony in Churchill Square will learn which of the premier's starring performances in Alberta political theatre won the award shortly after 2 p.m.

Ms. Redford's performances have been nominated for:

• Convincing Albertans she would protect their public health care system

• Convincing Albertans she would protect their public education system

• Convincing Albertans she would protect their retirement plans

Despite extremely cold temperatures, hundreds of Albertans are expected to attend the event, sponsored by the Labour Coalition on Pensions.

"Yes, it will be cold, but no colder than the hearts of Progressive Conservative politicians who would put valued public services and promises to hard-working employees at risk," said Alberta Federation of Labour President Gil McGowan on behalf of coalition members.

Media are encouraged to dress warmly and attend the ceremony.
