A Wild Rose Earth Day note

A fun little oddity from the WildRose Alliance party's 2011 financial statements...a $2,750 contribution from "Halliburton," presumably the Calgary branch of the one and only Halliburton of Dick Cheney fame.

The Alberta PCs did not get the Halliburton dough, by contrast. At least, not in the $375 and above range.

Both parties are well funded by the oil patch, of course. Notably, they're not far off in terms of total funds raised for 2011 as between them.

Hope everyone had a good Earth Day!
