New MPs[edit]

If you can show that the four people elected last night have been sworn in as members of parliament, than you can add the categories and templates stating that. I believe they have not been sworn in yet, so they are not yet MPs. prove me wrong if you can, and if you can't, then please stop adding incorrect information to Wikipedia. Thanks.

Philippe Couillard article[edit]

Hello. At 13:58 on April 11, 2014, you made an edit to the Philippe Couillard article. Your notes were that "(1) Premiers do not automatically become members of the federal Privy Council, it's actually quite rare 2) yes they have the honorific honourable while in office but Couillard hasn't been sworn in yet". Your comments are correct in general, but you may not have realized that in June 2010, Philippe Couillard was appointed to the Security Intelligence Review Committee and was also appointed to the Queen's Privy Council for Canada (for life).

The Prime Minister's press release of 23 June 2010 states: "Prime Minister Stephen Harper today announced the appointments of the Hon. Dr. Arthur Thomas Porter as Chairperson, and the Hon. Carol Skelton and the Hon. Dr. Philippe Couillard as members of the Security Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC). [...] In accordance with the requirements of the Canadian Security Intelligence Act, Dr. Couillard was sworn into the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada." See this at: http://pm.gc.ca/eng/news/2010/06/23/prime-minister-stephen-harper-announces-appointments-security-intelligence-review

You can see his name (The Honourable Philippe Couillard) under the letter "C" at the official Current Alphabetical List of Members of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, which is here: http://www.pco-bcp.gc.ca/index.asp?lang=eng&page=information&sub=council-conseil&doc=members-membres/alphabet-eng.htm

You can also see his name (The Honourable Philippe Couillard, P.C., M.D.) under the date "24 June 2010" at the official Appointed SIRC Members list, which is here: http://www.sirc-csars.gc.ca/abtprp/ambnmn-eng.html

I hope that the above evidence proves to you that he has been a current member of the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada since June 2010. As such, he is entitled to the prefix "The Honourable" and the post-nominal "P.C.", and please let me know if you need any further evidence.

If you are in agreement with me, then I would be most grateful if you would please consider undoing your revision of April 11, 2014 at 13:58, when you removed the above items. Please let me know your thoughts on that. Thanks for your help and I look forward to hearing from you! Blairall (talk) 18:47, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Alberta New Democratic Party leadership election, 2014[edit]

I feel that because the Alberta NDP are a third or fourth place party, and no other leadership elections have articles, the Alberta New Democratic Party leadership election, 2014 is not notable enough for a standalone article. 117Avenue (talk) 02:48, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry you feel that way. See Alberta Alliance Party leadership election, 2005. Downwoody (talk) 05:33, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
An unreferenced article in need of major clean-up. What about it? 117Avenue (talk) 23:03, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
I see no reason why a party that has seats in the legislature shouldn't have an article on its leadership election. Downwoody (talk) 11:00, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
I told you, it's not notable. 117Avenue (talk) 05:17, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
Can you give me some justification for that other than your opinion? Downwoody (talk) 12:31, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

James Maloney[edit]

Hi! I noticed that you were changing James Maloney to James Maloney (rugby player). Just thought I'd drop you a note to make sure you're aware that there an awful lot of links that should be fixed if you do so. And also, to let you know Maloney is actually a rugby LEAGUE player, and should be labelled accordingly.

Maybe you already know this. If so, just ignore me. Doctorhawkes (talk) 21:39, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
