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.”
On behalf of BC's New Democrat MPs, I want to extend my wholehearted congratulations to Premier-elect Rachel Notley on an inspiring campaign and a historic win for the people of Alberta. Last night's results send a message of hope and optimism across Canada.
