I’m not a partisan politician. I’ve sat through 8 addresses 2 @TheAUMA from #AB’s #Premiers. Credit where credit is due: @RachelNotley’s today at #AUMA2017 was by far the most thoughtful, meaningful content-filled, the best, of my political career.

Acadia is also a part of the Acadia Provincial Electoral District.
