Election 2015 - Recap

May 06, 2015 | Jeremy "JD" DeRaadt

The province has spoken, and a new provincial government is now in effect. The New Democratic Party has taken the reigns, as Wildrose became the official opposition last night. I sat in front of my TV, watching the live statistics and numbers rising, very surprised to see an absolute ‘orange crush’, as many people are calling it.

Locally, Wildrose won out in both the Fort McMurray-Conklin riding and the Fort McMurray-Wood Buffalo riding. This means Brian Jean and Tany Yao are both the local MLAs that report back to the Alberta Legislature on our behalf.

If you missed Brian’s speech last night, here’s the full video from the Sawridge: http://bit.ly/1QnyBkV
