Conservatives swept from office in Alberta


#1

[quote]The Progressive Conservative grip on Alberta is over.

The New Democrats, led by Rachel Notley, upended the PC dynasty on Tuesday evening in a snap election, effectively ending four decades of Tory rule. The Tories have ruled Alberta for 43 years with majority governments. Forty-four seats are needed for a majority.[/quote]

PCs lose four-decade hold on the Albertan electorate

Yeah, business on occasion quakes when the commies take over. I suspect that things will settle down shortly.
It will be interesting to see if this decisive win in Alberta is a sign of things to come in October or a one off.

Proposed corporate tax rate under the NDP = 12%. Socialists!

Corporate tax rate under Ralph Klein = 15%. Guess Ralph Klein was a Communist!
