Alberta Wildrose campaign bus back on the road minus hubba hubba hubcaps

  • Print

EDMONTON - Alberta's Wildrose party campaign bus is back on the road, this time without the tire cleavage.

The bus was taken off the road Monday when indelicate jokes about its paint job went viral on the Internet.

The original version had the image of party leader Danielle Smith toward the back of the bus, her neckline right above the twin rear tires.

The new bus has Smith's picture in the middle, similar to where Premier Alison Redford's image is on the Progressive Conservative bus.

Opponents tried to take advantage of the redesign, saying if the Wildrose can't design a bus, they can't run a government.

Smith and the party laughed the situation off and called it one of the many unintended snarls that bedevil every campaign.

They redesigned the bus, they said, to avoid it becoming a distraction.
