Bruce Rowe says the principles that took him to the Wildrose Party when he decided to run for office exist today, they existed yesterday and they will exist tomorrow. Despite the recent actions of 2 Wildrose caucus members, Rowe says there is no way he would ever cross the floor to join any other party.
The Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills MLA has lost some respect for Kerry Towle after she left the Wildrose Party to join the governing Tories this week.
Rowe says it was a 'total surprise' to see the Innisfail-Sylvan Lake MLA cross the floor of the Alberta Legislature.
According to Rowe the Wildrose Party has discussed the issue, and there is no one else in their caucus who is going to make a similar move.
Rowe says he will not cross the floor to join any other party.
As a fellow Central Alberta rural MLA, Rowe considered Towle to be a close friend but says he has not heard from or spoken to her this week. Towle and Little Bow MLA Ian Donovan both joined Jim Prentice's PCs on Monday.
