Results are starting to come in Alberta #abvote , its a Tory majority.
For once Liberals, Progressive Conservatives, Dippers, Greens , Rhino's and everyone else are happy with the victory of the Progressive Conservatives in Alberta, well technically the defeat of Wildrose party.
Once again pollsters were way off the mark...those hundreds of champagne bottles that Wildrose supporters got...hmnn going to be a bubbly garbage tomorrow.
White people in Alberta can relax, don't have to live with the guilt of having elected a party whose candidates said white people are better positioned to serve than those who are not (yup in 2012 , in Canada some people believe that!)
Leech's comment : “When different community leaders such as a Sikh leader or a Muslim leader speak, they really speak to their own people in many ways. As a Caucasian, I believe that I can speak to all the community.” This probably was the start of the decline of Wildrose.
Hudak had a majority in his pocket in the last Ontario provincial election. All he had to do was shut up and let the media do it work on the Liberal platform on immigrants. Instead he went on overdrive with his comments on 'Foreign workers' which was the end of his campaign. Immigrants with votes(lived in Canada for 4 or more years) would have voted against the idea in fear that newer ones might end up taking their jobs, when their turn was just coming!
More evidence that the right of centre is the place to be( I know B.C. is leaning more towards the pseudo communists). Canadian are getting more and more comfortable with the right of centre, but dont stretch that too far, just at arms length distance. Anti Immigrants hate not only scares immigrants/minorities, but also the moderate vote that hinges on the right and left of centre. Its that vote in that bandwidth which determines every election in Canada and gets into panic mode when hate speech is thrown out during campaign.
Congrats to Redford on being the first female premier of Alberta. Hope she understands that this was NOT a vote for her but a vote against the Wild West Wildrose party.
