Well, after all the excitement from the French election, we have more excitement tonight. For the first time in ages Alberta could be in store for a change of government if all the polls are any indication. Danielle Smith and the Wildrose could be on the brink of toppling Premier Alison Redford and the 41-year PC dynasty in Alberta. That would be a significant upset if it were to happen. Already, the editorial pages have weighed in with the Calgary Herald hedging their bets, while the Sun chain is full-on calling for a change in government.
The election results are not in yet but the postmortems have already started from the likes of Andrew Coyne and others. We'll see.
Personally, I haven't written too much about the election so far but plan to write a big column on it for the paper. Last week, for laughs, I decided to drive to Lloydminster just to check out the election sign wars there, and I saw lots of PC and Wildrose signs, so it's a pretty hot race there.
Results from the CBC can be found here starting at 8PM Mountain time (10PM EST). As for me, I will be sitting in city council chambers tonight and plan to follow the results from inside by tuning in the booming radio signal of 660 News. See you later.
