Is the Harper government past it’s “best buy” date? Absolutely, but then again the Ontario Wynne government normally would not win if voters felt there were clear alternatives.
Voter anger and apathy turfed the Alberta Conservatives who had held power for 44 years.
The NDP won 54 seats to the Wild Rose Party’s 21, PC’s 10, and Liberal’s lone seat. Former Harper minister Jim Prentice walked away from public service resigning the leadership and his seat after the election.
While the seeds of change hover Federally only 1 seat went to the Liberals last night. While PM Stephen Harper will be grumbly this morning and Thomas Mulcair beaming, Justin Trudeau and his team cannot be happy with the election results.
The irony for Conservatives in Alberta is that all those Eastern folk heading West for jobs get to vote to and they changed the province giving a majority to a party that for generations had been the butt of Alberta political jokes.
What do you think Canada? Will Alberta’s election impact how the Federal vote turns out? You can post your comments below.
