Politicians follow money to Calgary – Financial Post

Borrowing a page from Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall’s political handbook, B.C. Premier Christy Clark is coming to Calgary next week to make friends and raise money for her political future.

Business community sources say Ms. Clark is hosting a $500-a-ticket event at the Calgary Petroleum Club targeting deep-pocketed oil patch players. She is also planning to meet with Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi and Alberta’s new premier, Alison Redford.

The visits are a measure of how much the political centre of gravity in Western Canada is following the money to Calgary.
