UCP strategists reenact the invasion of Alberta by Martians led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. This time, the fake news will be on social media, not the radio. Actual Conservative strategists may not appear exactly as illustrated (Photo: Public Domain).

Trying to come up with a list of the most important Alberta political news stories of 2018 is more challenging than one might imagine since the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion brouhaha sucked all the oxygen out of this place for most of the year.

A court challenge was inevitable. So it was probably a bad bet by the Alberta NDP and the overconfident Liberals in Ottawa to put their money on construction of the TMX starting when they needed it. Just like Conservative PM Stephen Harper before them, the Liberals miscalculated the willingness of Canada’s independent and impartial judiciary to pay attention to the niceties of the rule of law even when it was inconvenient for their re-election strategy.

This is true notwithstanding the lunatic conspiracy theories about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wanting secretly to destroy the multi-billion-dollar pipeline project he had just bought for us that are being propounded by Alberta Conservatives, who presumably understand perfectly well this is nonsense but fervently hope their supporters don’t. (It seems to be working.)

Never mind that Ottawa’s now-meaningful consultations with First Nations along the route, as required by the Federal Court of Appeal’s ruling last summer, are proceeding apace and the pipeline will certainly be completed as the Trudeau Government intends. To hear the Conservatives tell it, you’d think Mars was invading Alberta and Mr. Trudeau was collaborating with a Martian plan to burn all the oil wells.
