Losin’ Ain’t Easy
Andray wants to know what a party in the opposition can actually do, so he talks to Ray Martin, the former Leader of the Offiical Opposition for Alberta. He also talks about the future of the Conservative Party with Mark Warner - a candidate who was ousted in 2007 - and Tasha Kheiriddin - a conservative who's been critical of Stephen Harper.

Andray asks these questions to someone who’s been in that position. Ray Martin used to lead the Official Opposition in Alberta.

Andray also talks about the future of the Conservative Party with Mark Warner – a CPC candidate who was ousted in 2007 – and Tasha Kheiriddin – a conservative who’s been critical of Stephen Harper.
