I know you're a super conservative and obviously aren't pleased about the result, but there's no need to overreact, Alberta is a democracy and if the voters find that NDP governance has been harmful they can always replace them at the next election. For now, Alberta has aired out a stale legislature that they were unhappy with for some pretty valid reasons, and I think new ideas and fresh faces can only be good for democracy. If voters change their mind at the next election, at least house will have been cleaned and maybe some of those new ideas will end up being good ones that people will want to keep around, even if others are reversed. Only time will tell how this administration will do, it's too early to be judging them already when they've only just been hired for a few hours!
Always the voice of balanced reasoning - Bimbam!!

Problem is Albertans sought change based on a "bad news budget" by electing a party based on "bad news ideology".

The next year or two will answer any questions we have about this new government. I wish them the best. Change can be good.
But about 60% of the people of Alberta wanted things to remain essentially as it was before the election...

The thing about this election though that I'm taking away is that it is refreshing to know, that the people still have a voice and it should put ALL politicians of ALL political stripes on notice. You work for us.

So let me get this straight. You give the Conservatives a blank check for 40 years of continuous rule, yet can't even tolerate 24 hours of NDP and immediately start throwing mud.

You see, this is why nobody votes for PC or Conservatives these days.

Alberta embraced Harper now they've decided the guy that promised transparency and overhaul hasn't delivered so out he goes.

Arrogance it would seem is even distasteful enough to Albertans to get rid of their traditional party.

Now if only the Ontario group would LEARN so as to wipe out the Bobby Rae (Rhodes Scholar my rosy red azz ) memories of Buddies in Bad Times Theater fiasco years.........

Yeah, NAFTA, which is what destroyed industry in Ontario during the 90s, was all Bob Rae's fault.
