ALBERTA VOTES


In a historic vote, Albertans elected a new premier last night. The United Conservative Party (UCP), led by Jason Kenney, will now form a majority government in Alberta. The UCP took over 60 of the 87 available seats. Former Alberta premier, Rachel Notley, held onto her seat in Edmonton; her party, the NDP, will now form the official opposition with its 24 elected members. Voter turnout was off the charts, with more than 2.7 million Albertans registering to vote and nearly 700,000 people voting in advance polls.

Tell me about the issues…
In the lead up to the election, party leaders were focused on pipelines, jobs, and the economy. Finger pointing and personal attacks dominated the campaign, with Kenney criticizing the NDP for failing to turn the economy around, and selling out Alberta to the federal government. ICYMI, Alberta’s economy took a nosedive in 2015 when global oil prices fell – more than 133,000 Albertans lost their jobs and unemployment remains above the national average. Albertans are split on whether Notley’s government and policies – including a controversial carbon tax – made a bad situation worse. Notley also threw shade at Kenney for his history of opposing same-sex marriage and access to abortion services. For a more in-depth look at the issues, check out our cheat sheet.

What do the results mean?
It means the tides have changed. In 2015, Alberta cast aside its Conservative roots, breaking 44 years of tradition, to elect an NDP government. Four years later, a stagnant economy has led many Albertans to call for a return to old times. Kenney’s election also deals a blow to #TeamTrudeau. Although Notley and PM Trudeau didn’t always see eye to eye, they established a working relationship; working with Kenney will prove to be more challenging as he has publicly attacked federal policies on the environment and promised to “fight back” against Ottawa

Then-Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown asked a donor to give $5,000 to his girlfriend


Brown’s request to a top donorcame on the same day he agreed to let the supporter’s candidate run in a controversial Hamilton nomination race in 2017, according to newly unsealed court documents.

Brown was under “pressure” from the Indian consulate to reject the candidate, an individual whose father had alleged ties to Sikh extremism, the documents say. But Brown signed off on it the same day $5,000 was provided to his girlfriend (and now wife) and $2,000 to an unidentified individual for PC Party campaign work. The money wasn’t declared as a political donation.

The PCs later overturned the results of six nomination races, including Hamilton, that were dogged by accusations of wrongdoing. That came after Brown resigned as leader amid sexual-misconduct allegations. He is now the mayor of Brampton.
