In politics, it’s often the details that matter most. Ted Morton and Jim Dinning, who are both running for the premiership of Alberta, recently swung by Southern Alberta to pitch their ideas and candidacy to the local party members and organizers. Morton met with the locals in a backyard and on the menu was moose sausage – cooked over a open fire. On the other hand, Dinning met with the local elite and sushi (and other delicate finger foods) was on the menu.
Overheard by the food at Dinning’s HQ: “I don’t know what that is, but I guess I’ll try it.”
Kinda says it all, doesn’t it?
This scenario is rather typical in this race – Morton as the down to earth individual who will come to your house and speak to you and your neighbours, while Dinning hobnobs with local elites over Asian delicacies.
