"Canada’s rockbound political landscape has undergone a seismic shift with the election of a leftwing government in oil-rich Alberta, the country’s wealthiest and – until now – most conservative province.

 

The once-marginal New Democratic Party swept to victory in the western province on Tuesday night, humiliating the Progressive Conservative party that has ruled the province since the first term of US president Richard Nixon.

 

“We made a little bit of history tonight,” the province’s New Democrat leader, Rachel Notley, told supporters.

 

The result marks the latest and most surprising setback to prime minister Stephen Harper’s signature diplomatic effort to transport bitumen from Alberta’s tar sands to world markets through the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.

 

Meanwhile, ordinary Canadians were reeling from the sheer magnitude of the shift in Alberta, which has placed the country’s most notoriously conservative province, taken for granted as an impregnable redneck kingdom, in the hands of its most progressive regional government. To explain the phenomenon, Toronto-based writer Doug Saunders asked his American Twitter followers to imagine socialist presidential candidate Bernie Saunders “becoming Texas governor by a big majority.

Alberta is the Texas of Canada. Looks like it might by bye-bye for the Keystone Pipeline. This is a huge move to the left, not foreseen by most. It's worth noting that Canada has publicly funded elections.

Who KNEW there were clueless-"Teabaggers", in Canada??!!! crying.gif

"After 44 years as a Progressive Conservative stronghold, Albertans threw their support behind the left-leaning New Democratic Party (NDP) in an upset election. But it was too much for many of those loyal to the old ways of the West.

The results had some Albertans on social media threatening to move to Saskatchewan, the neighbouring province."
