The latest developments in the Alberta election; UCP wins majority

Alberta's legislature in Edmonton during the summer

Kenney will join Saskatchewan's Scott Moe, Manitoba's Brian Pallister, New Brunswick's Blaine Higgs, and Ontario's Doug Ford in their opposition to the carbon pricing system.

Campaign Life Coalition, Canada's national pro-life, pro-family political lobbying group, congratulated Kenney in a press release that blasted the NDP's legacy.

Hausser said the NDP was able to raise more money, bring out more volunteers, place more election signs and grow the party. Notley proved she could be harsh and bare-knuckled at times: "You may not agree with everything I've done, but we share core values-and we won't attack minorities", she said at a campaign stop in a day care.

"We congratulate Jason on his big win, and urge him to restore the rights and freedoms that have been stripped away from parents and people of faith during these past four years of NDP tyranny".

A sweeping overhaul of school curriculums is also expected to be on hold.

"The key is a majority government, which UCP has."
That same year, he won the UCP leadership handily in a contest later marred by controversy.

He was chosen as the new party's leader in the fall of 2017, and became a member of the legislature when he won a byelection in Calgary-Lougheed that December.

Rachel Notley's NDP came in second with 35 seats and 30 per cent of the popular vote, with the Alberta Party picking up the final three seats.

"I think they [Trudeau government] should be prepared for the end of the carbon tax, the end of any kind of cooperation on climate change with the province of Alberta, and from having any kind of ally in this part of the country", Stewart told CTV News Channel after the election results came in.

Jason Kenney and the UCP are headed towards a decisive win tonight with a majority of seats, taking control of the Alberta Legislative Assembly for what will likely be the next four years.

Many Albertans, too, are increasingly unnerved by the province's growing ocean of red ink and angry at the federal government and the provinces of Quebec and British Columbia for grievances including pipeline obstructionism, perceived unfairness in federal spending and seeming indifference for Alberta's troubles.

He takes the top job after winning on a jobs, jobs, jobs message and a promise to wage war on all who oppose Alberta's oil and gas industry, particularly Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. They also back measures to prop up Alberta's energy industry, which struggled a year ago with record discounts on Canadian crude because of pipeline congestion. "Build that pipe!" as reported in Global News.

During the campaign, Notley tried to make Kenney's character an issue.

Voters are heading to the polls in the Alberta election today and advance turnouts suggest it could be busy at the ballot boxes.

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

"Parental rights over the moral education of children must be respected by the State", he said.

Notley introduced a carbon tax to help cut emissions of greenhouse gases, a measure Kenney had vowed to scrap. He took over the Progressive Conservatives, spearheaded a merger with the Wildrose and built a new party to win back a disenchanted electorate exhausted of conservatives after 44 years.
