Trust Our Elections

…but scrutinize the overseers

One of the things we’re fortunate enough to take for granted in Alberta is that our elections are fair. Oh, some Albertans will mimic conspiracy nutbars in the US, who think any election they lose must have been rigged, but generally speaking we have faith in the people who run our provincial elections.

Well, I suppose we trust Elections Alberta to make sure the ballots are counted correctly. But we might not have as much trust these days in how the agency does other things, such as communicate with the public.
