In what could have been a historic shift in Alberta that some warned could have put the unity of our country at stake, Albertans gave the ruling Progressive Conservatives another chance at governance.

Alison Redford has been elected in her riding of Calgary-Elbow and declared Premier for another term.
Redford will be facing a Wildrose Official Opposition lead by Danielle Smith who was elected in her riding of Highwood.
These results are not final but what is is that the Progressive Conservatives won a majority government in what will be a historic election.
The results completely contradict the polls preceding the election which suggested a major shift was coming to Alberta’s political landscape favoring more rightwing party Wildrose which has Reform tendencies.
How do you feel about Alberta’s choice?
