Went in and voted for Gary today. I'm hoping that Horner doesn't get in on another Southern Alberta vote split between Mar and Redford.

I heard Horner's voice, I wouldn't want him as premier either.

If I was old enough, I'd vote for Mr. Redford.

Neither Mar or Redford is going to get there with first choices. I think that favours Redford quite a bit. She reached out to Horner's supporters by saying he was her second choice.

I think it's Premier Redford at the end of the night, which would be quite incredible given how far back she was a mere two weeks ago.

Loving this race! It's 12:37 AM and nothing has been announced yet. But it would it seems on the Twittersphere that Alison is going to win. Rutherford just announced that he is going to have her on his show at 9am on Monday.

Go Alison Go!

I think its been a interesting shift within the PC party, it feels very much like what is happening in BC. Gordon Campbell was very similar to the Stelmech government, while Clark came in on the idea of change/reform..

^ Why print media is increasingly irrelevant.

Alison Redford FTW!

Had I purchased a PC membership, I would have voted for her.

Interesting. Mine had Redford, but maybe they did a switch in the wee hours this morning.

During the live chat on the Herald website one of the commentators mentioned that they were on their 3rd set of printing plates due to the changing results, so you might have just got a later set of prints.

When does Ms. Redford become premier and not just premier-designate?

No date yet. Though she wants it to take place before she leaves to talk in Washington (about the XL Pipeline, I think). Not sure when that is exactly.

It's Friday...

Quote:
Alison Redford will be sworn in Friday as Alberta's new premier.
Quote:
Leadership rival Doug Horner will remain deputy premier, a position he held under Premier Ed Stelmach. Education Minister Dave Hancock will remain house leader.

Cabinet ministers will be sworn in Oct. 12.

Redford also announced that there will be a fall sitting of the Alberta legislature after all. The new session starts Oct. 24.
