Another Headache for Trudeau as Conservatives Take Oil-Rich Alberta

Horgan also suggested some of Kenney's comments may be bluster and campaign rhetoric.

While open to collaboration on energy, his party's election raises questions about Alberta's willingness to collaborate on other pan-Canadian issues, like climate change.

Kenney did eventually get around to mentioning those who did not vote for the UCP.

During its four years in power, Notley's NDP passed a "bubble zone" law banning pro-life witness outside abortion centers, sought to expand abortion access across the province, aggressively pushed the LGBTQ agenda in schools, and attacked homeschooling and faith-based schools.

"He is clearly ringing their bell right now", said Day. Lorne Dach of the NDP is projected to win the riding. "He should begin the moment he takes office as Premier". Instead, he chose to return home to Alberta, where the Progressive Conservatives (PC) had been ousted by the NDP.

After arriving inside the UCP victory party hall in his signature "Alberta Strong and Free" pickup truck, Kenney gave a pugilistic speech that sounded more like he was kicking off a campaign rather than wrapping one up.

He has also been adamant the UCP will not revisit abortion. That's a huge demotion, but the NDP did more than survive as a political entity in the legislature.

The new government can't do much about oil and gas prices, but the UCP hopes it can still lure investment by streamlining regulations and reducing costs on industry.

Kenney has stated that, if elected, he would proclaim the Education Act, which would replace the NDP's School Act and numerous amendments that came along with Bill 24 - most notably, the requirement for school principals to grant permission for students to form gay-straight alliances immediately and for all schools to have public policies that protect LGBTQ+ students.

In addition, Kenney has said he planned to hold a referendum in Alberta regarding the so-called equalization payments the federal government distributes to smoothen financial inequalities among provinces. "Help is on the way and hope is on the horizon".

Tampa Bay will be the designated home team, meaning the Panthers will still play eight games at Bank of America Stadium in 2019. The NFL is so big and so popular at this point that something as mundane as releasing the schedule has become a big event.

Disney throws down gauntlet in war on Netflix
The streaming giant also directly addressed the new competition from Disney ($ DIS ) and Apple ($ AAPL ) in its earnings report . Last week , Disney priced its service at US$7 a month, just more than half the US$13 price for Netflix's most USA popular plan.

Kenney has promised to fight Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in court on multiple fronts, including the federal carbon tax, and has promised to do what he can to get Trudeau defeated in the fall national election.

"The current challenges won't go away just because there's a new government", said economist Marie-Christine Bernard, a director with the Conference Board of Canada.

He said the biggest issue he's hearing about from executives, investors and lenders is the need for more pipelines to provide market access for Western Canada's growing crude oil production.

The pipeline problem has become Alberta's Achilles' heel, costing it billions in lost profits from crude oil exports as production grows but existing pipelines can not cope with the additional load.

"The world needs more Canadian energy", Kenney said during his speech as his supporters chanted: "Build that pipe!" The Liberals and Alberta Party were erased from the legislative assembly.

"We should buck up", said Smith about if Kenney starts to act on all his campaign promises.

"The Charter right to freedom of expression is fundamental to a free and democratic society".

Throughout the campaign, accusing their opponents of racism and xenophobia became Alberta NDP's primary tactic with often ridiculous results as the smears turned egg on New Democrats' faces than any points on their social justice scoreboards. The other frontrunner, Jason Kenney of the United Conservatives, has sent a message that he is "fighting back" against those opposing Alberta, such as the federal government and environmentalists.

The UCP's victory ends four years in power for the NDP, whose 2015 victory rocked one of Canada's most conservative provinces.
