Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel fails to win seat

Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel fails to win seat

Premier John Horgan offered his congratulations to Kenney via social media, "I look forward to working together in the interests of both of our provinces". "It's safe to say I'm not as much voting Kenney in as voting Notley out", said geologist Ty Pfeifer, 61.

This time around, the Progressive Conservatives are no more.

Jason Kenney, leader of the United Conservative Party, left, speaks as Andrew Scheer, leader of Canada's Conservative Party, gestures to the crowd during a campaign rally in Calgary, Alberta on Thursday, April 11, 2019.

He will take the top job after successfully leveraging voter angst over Alberta's sluggish economy with a jobs, jobs, jobs message and a promise to wage war on all who oppose its oil and gas industry, particularly Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Polls opened at 9 a.m. Tuesday and Notley walked to her polling place with her family in Edmonton around 10:30 a.m.

Nearly 700,000 people voted in advance polls, well above the record 235,000 who did in 2015. She expects construction to begin this year.

Rempel was also optimistic about what a Kenney victory would mean for federal-provincial relations, particularly in the conservative-fuelled fight against the carbon tax.

Mr Kenney campaigned as a champion of the oil sector, promising to fund a "war room" to defend Canada's energy resources at home and overseas.

Trudeau was asked in Kitchener, Ont., earlier Tuesday whether he was concerned about his climate plan should Kenney win.

Kenney now turns his attention to a spring-summer sitting and a platform that includes undoing most of the signature elements of the last four years of changes under the NDP, starting with the provincial carbon tax on fossil-fuelled heating and gas at the pumps. His appointment will setting up a fight with Mr Trudeau over climate change just months before the country's federal election in October. However, it ended up receiving little attention amid the heated battle between Mr. Kenney and Ms. Notley.

Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel lost in Edmonton-McClung.

The NDP attacked Kenney out of the gate for his past views on same-sex rights and abortion.

Candidates are also being fielded by the Alberta Party, Alberta's Liberal Party, the Freedom Conservative Party, the Alberta Independence Party and the Alberta Greens, among a number of independent candidates. It's promising to be the safe centrist by combining the economic conservatism of the UCP with the social progressivism of the NDP.

Notley will either be the first Alberta NDP premier to win re-election or the first leader in the province to fail to win a renewed mandate on the first try.
