Oil Industry Relieved After Major Conservative Win In Alberta

Oil Industry Relieved After Major Conservative Win In Alberta

She helped the NDP end decades of conservative rule in the province after winning in 2015. Later that year, he defeated Jean in a leadership contest and became head of the new party.

Jason Kenney has set April 30 as the date for when he and his cabinet will be sworn in.

Rachel Notley's NDP is holding strong in Edmonton.

The two provinces are in talks to develop another pipeline - the 750-kilometre GNL Québec project - which will carry natural gas from Alberta, across northern Ontario and through the Abitibi region to a natural gas liquefaction complex at Port Saguenay.

"Voted", said Ethan Notley, 20, as his mom filled out her ballot. As we get closer to this fall's federal election, watch Maclean's for more 338Canada.com vote projections.

Despite the challenges, Trudeau has no intention of changing his mind.

Later Tuesday, Kenney was scheduled to make appearances in Red Deer, Alta., and Calgary.

Though Canada under Trudeau has been cast as a foil to President Trump's United States and is seen internationally as a bastion of progressive politics, his government is fending off a conservative surge that could reshape the face of Canadian politics.

In the Edmonton ridings, The UCP is leading in Sherwood Park and Edmonton-Southwest and the NDP is leading in Edmonton-McClung, Edmonton-South and Edmonton-West Henday. Notley, 54, has said those plans favour only the wealthy and would harm the province's health care and education systems.

India's debt-ridden Jet Airways suspends all operations
Some 20,000 employees had reached out to the Prime Minister yesterday appealing to save their jobs. At its peak, Jet operated over 120 planes and well over 600 daily flights.

Trudeau cordially congratulated Kenney on his victory, but CBC quoted analysts who suspect the prime minister dreads the permanent headache he is about to develop from constant confrontations with the Albertans and other energized conservatives, and his supply of political aspirin is running low.

Brown, who did polling throughout the campaign, points to her data on how Albertans chose to vote, saying Albertans went to the polls and voted strategically, rather than for the party they wanted to win. She expects construction to begin this year.

"We will launch a public inquiry into the foreign source of funds behind the campaign to landlock Alberta energy", said Kenney, repeating a favourite talking point of Alberta conservatives who believe an American conspiracy is keeping Alberta oil landlocked and cheap.

Kenney's victory, coupled with Doug Ford's win past year in Ontario, gives Trudeau a custom-made narrative: elect a federal Liberal majority as a counterweight to the proliferation of provincial Conservative governments, Coletto said.

"We've had enough of your campaign of defamation and double standards", said Kenney.

Kenney's proven skills as a communicator and his experience in the political arena are sure to make him a thorn in the prime minister's side, said Abacus Data chief executive David Coletto.

"We have chosen to put a price on pollution right across the country and there are conservative politicians who are using taxpayer money to fight a price on pollution in court", he responded.

The win could reverberate beyond Alberta, setting the party on a collision course with PM Justin Trudeau's Liberals over climate change.

Horgan also suggested some of Kenney's comments may be bluster and campaign rhetoric. Federal Green Party leader Elizabeth May has been in Charlottetown campaigning hard for Bevan-Baker. It's promising to be the safe centrist by combining the economic conservatism of the UCP with the social progressivism of the NDP.
