Western Standard News Editor Dave Naylor has spent more than a month investigating the story of Caylan Ford. Ford seemed certain to be a potential political star – intelligent, photogenic and ready to make a mark.

She was recruited by Jason Kenney to run for the Alberta UCP in the 2019 election. Ford seemed to be on the path to stardom when she was shot down in flames by rumours and planted news stories in an NDP-affiliated propaganda “news” website.
