    Notley deserves way more credit than she is getting. She is 100times more Albertian then lying Kenny

    Absolutely. Though for some reason, the joke about how partisans would vote for some ridiculously inappropriate candidiate if he ran under the right label always seems to come off best with rural conservatives. As far as I know, even right-wing southerners never came up with an exact parallel to "Yellow Dog Democrat" to hurl at liberals, even as they came up with lots of other abusive epithets.

    Maybe this is because there's more of a stereotype of rural people always supporting the same thing, over and over again, for all eternity? Whereas the stereotype of left-wingers tends to be that they're culturally alienated from the very people they claim to care about, hence "champagn socialist" and "latte liberal".

    Also, there's a stereotype that left-wingers are always bickering among themselves, so the image of them marching off to the polls like lobotomized zombies to support the same party year after year doesn't quite fit.

    Bill C-6 had given Notley a lot of heat before her Government caved in under the pressure. Rural Alberta still remembers it and still will during election time. Parkland county residents still feels burned over the loss of half of their coal plants, which was a major employer. This will be expressed during the next election campaign. Notley might have 1 term left but it'll be a minority Government. The above 2, probably more will be the closing spikes in her coffin.

    alta cuts deficit, adds 33,000 jobs in 12 months, while Sask falls behind

    Alberta has seen an increase of thirty-three thousand jobs in twelve months ending June 2018, and a two-and-a-half billion dollar decrease in its provincial deficit from March projections, as Saskatchewan falls behind with the worst job numbers since the early 1990s, and the highest provincial debt in the Province’s history.
    Economists have noted that the Alberta Government’s refusal to engage in an austerity approach has improved the position of the province, by maintaining employment, and keeping income tax revenue stable through the crash. In contrast, Saskatchewan’s austerity approach has seen a near-doubling of the unemployment rate, and the highest number of unemployed in Saskatchewan history.
    NDP Alberta’s debt-to-GDP number will sit at 8.7 percent in fiscal 2018/2019 – the best level in Canada. NDP B.C.’s debt-to-GDP ratio is the second-best in the nation at 15 percent.

    The conservative-governed provinces in Western Canada do not fare as well. Sask Party Saskatchewan’s debt-to-GDP ratio is 16 percent, while Progressive Conservative Manitoba’s sits at a whopping 34 percent.

    I don't believe she has another term left, for the reasons you citied, and because of more things to come from the NDP.
    I was listening to David Egan, and I honestly wonder what planet he's from..I've never liked him,I like him less now..

    Despite the post above yours, there's much resentment to Notley's way she is handling her Government, especially in rural Alberta, and that's where my position is coming from. Its no secret that the majority of the voter base here in Alberta at least comes from Calgary pc blue and Edmonton Liberal red/orange. At least that's my interpretation. I might also add that Notley not only needs to contend with a growing in popularity with parties like the UCP and the Alberta party, the emergence of bill C-12. That being said moving forward, all the signs are there; Notley will have a minority Government in the next election. The only wild card here is the way she's handling the KM pipeline.

    There is no more pc party, except for one remaining rural MLA so I think I can fearlessly predict the PC's will not win any seats in Calgary in the next election. It is possible the Alberta party will pick up some of the former PC support, but I am not sure that will really hurt the NDP. I think rural support for the UCP will be strong and the NDP will hold on in Edmonton, leaving Calgary to be the battleground once again.

    Far more people in Edmonton work in the private sector than for the provincial government. I think provincial government employees make up less that 2.5% of the city's population.

    Edmonton will be orange again. As orange as Trump is. haha. The Welcome to Edmonton sign should read 'The City of Orange."
    When did punk rock become so safe? When did the scene become a joke?
