Note to NDP -- take a deep breath and avoid hubris | May 15 2015 | Karl Nerenberg | An EKOS poll and a poll in B.C. both show a boost in support for the NDP following the election in Alberta. That should not be an occasion for gloating or braggadocio.
Jim Prentice
Whither Alberta's Progressive Conservatives? Nowhere, probably … | May 14 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | If I were setting the NDP's agenda, I would place that promised ban on corporate and union donations right at the very top of my legislative to-do list!
organize
Keep on going... we are making a difference | May 14 2015 | Maya Bhullar | Taking action forced changes on the tax on tampons, Bill C-51, and, of course, in Alberta. Don't stop now!
Not Rex: On the plan for Albertastan | May 14 2015 | Humberto DaSilva | CBC TV had barely called an NDP majority government in Alberta when Minister of Justice Peter MacKay declared the province Albertastan!

NDP gets strong public services mandate from Albertan voters | May 13 2015 | Ella Bedard | No longer faced with Jim Prentice's proposed cuts, Alberta's unions can now breathe a sigh of relief with Rachel Notley.

Women of The War Room: The Alberta NDP | May 13 2015 | Sally Houser | Lots has been said about Rachel Notley's NDP victory in Alberta. What is important to note right away is that the central campaign staff were also made up of well over half women.

Alberta rejects the Canadian legacy of tax injustice | May 12 2015 | Duncan Cameron | Knowing that some people are not paying their fair share elicits strong emotions. When a talented leader such as Rachel Notley addresses blatant injustices, people get mad and go out and vote.
Tom Mulcair on the campaign trail in 2011
After Alberta, 'Orange Waves' could be the new normal | May 12 2015 | Paul Orlowski | Are the NDP bursts of electoral success mere rogue waves? Or can Canadians expect to see more of these tsunami-like surges in future elections?
Voters surrender to their inner bastard
Oh my God, Britain! What have you done? | May 11 2015 | Laura Brightwell | The first conservative majority government in 20 years was voted in on Friday.
Alberta Legislature
Lobbyists, agencies, government-funded ideological front groups face setbacks in wake of Alberta's Orange Wave | May 11 2015 | David J. Climenhaga | Several organizations and businesses are going to find the transition to Alberta's new Orange reality difficult, perhaps impossible.
Seniors Vote mobilizes for change at the ballot box | May 11 2015 | Doug Macpherson, Retiree Matters | There's an opportunity in October for older Canadians to tell politicians what they want and expect from future governments. Seniors are voting and they're going to make it count.

Like Barrett '72, Rachel Notley and Alberta are in for a wild ride | May 9 2015 | Rod Mickleburgh | After turfing two decades of SoCred rule, B.C. NDP's Dave Barrett famously told his caucus, 'We're here for a good time, not a long time.' What row will newly elected Rachel Notley hoe?
