NEWS ~ Alberta's NDP Victory sends message of hope and optimism

OTTAWA – The historic election results in Alberta last night sends a message of hope and optimism across Canada, said Murray Rankin, chair of the BC caucus for Canada’s New Democrats.

“On behalf of B.C.’s New Democrat MPs, I extend our wholehearted congratulations to our neighbours in Alberta,� he said.

“Yesterday, a seismic shift occurred in the Alberta landscape, and it was felt across the country. Albertans signalled their clear desire for change when they chose Rachel Notley as Premier, elected a record number of women, and delivered a powerful mandate to a majority New Democrat government. It shows that real change can happen when progressives unite, and when we work hard and stand by our principles.�
