Alberta Election - The Last Word - Wildrose set for Sweeping Majority - Poll
The poll, which shows the Wildrose Party with 41% over Alison Redford's Progressive Conservatives with 32%, while the NDP has 13% and the Liberals at 10%. The NDP and Liberals are strongest in Edmonton, where they are at 23% and 14% respectively.
The Forum Project Inc poll was conducted with a total of 2010 responses gathered Saturday evening by automated phone response.
The polling firm president Lorne Bozinoff said that the win is enough for Wildrose to capture 62 of the province's 87 seats.
“We expect to welcome a new majority government to the provincial scene on Monday night,”
Alison Redford's approach was that she wanted to change the character of Alberta. Most Albertans think that the province's character is just fine. In addition to this there have been attempts to fear monger against the Wildrose Party, almost to the point that it was described as scary and intolerant. Yet Redford had enough problems in her own party.
Despite passing a provincial budget prior to the election, Redford has made all kinds of additional promises and the list keeps piling on. The question is how it would all get paid for. Excessive spending has consequences. One only need to look south of the border to the U.S. with its $16 Trillion and growing deficit. Sooner or later the chickens come home to roost.
Alberta is headed for change. A change that returns the province to fiscal responsibility, property rights and free speech. A change that will be refreshing.
