BREAKING: Ladies and Gentlemen! After 44 Years of PC Ruling in Alberta, Rachel Notley and NDP Win 2015 Election!

Fellow Albertans – After 44 years of being ruled by the Progressive Conservative Party (PC), moving forward, the massive majority have decided to give Rachel Notely and the New Democratic Party (NDP) a fair chance to change things for the better within our growing province of Alberta. This is the first change of government in Alberta since 1971!

Rachel Notley and the NDP have made verbal and written statements saying that they plan to change the following to better our province:

  • Personal Income Tax changes: $0-125k: 10%, $125k-$150k: 12%, $150k-$200k: 14%, $300k and over: 15%
  • Increase corporate tax to 12% from its current 10%. Small business tax will remain the same at 3%
  • Plan to cut school fees in half and eliminate lunch supervision fees province-wide
  • Roll back several other fees
  • Raise minimum wage to $15/hr province-wide
  • and so much more…

With all of that being said, I just want to express my sincere appreciation to each and every one of you that have gone out and voted this election period. We all make a difference!

Elections Alberta reported that more Albertans cast a ballot in the advance polls this year than any other advance poll in Alberta’s history. In 2012, just under 180,000 Albertans cast a ballot in the advance polls, with only 64,000 in 2008, and even less the election prior, whereas this year over 235,000 Albertans cast a ballot in the advance polls.

So are YOU happy with the results of Alberta’s 2015 election? Let us know in the comments!

    I did read it pretty clearly…you said, “the massive majority have decided to give Rachel Notely and the New Democratic Party (NDP) a fair chance to change things for the better within our growing province of Alberta.” How can you say that? We can’t guarantee they’re going to change things for the better!!! I don’t think they will. I know MANY people who live in provinces governed by the NDP and they hate it!

  10. I moved to Alberta from Manitoba (usually a ndp province).
    NDP will do this province good. And in all honesty…….NDP can’t do worse then what the last government has done

  11. sue, people will see what the ndp are going to do with our province and no doubt they’ll be the first to bitch about it

      We’ll see how it goes. I would imagine that if it turns out that the NDP turn out to be as much of a disappointment (given time) as any other government is/was…they’ll be given the boot, too. While I’m not elated they won, I’m not adverse to giving them the opportunity to prove themselves. Time will tell…

    • yeah, time will tell

      Because of PCs being out, we will have jobs instead of tfws taking our work. Will actually have a functioning health care system and also an education system. And will be charging large corporations more taxes to help the economy instead of us regular people. I’m starting to wonder what people saw in conservatives

    • yeah ok justin, keep dreaming lol

    If they hate it so much, maybe they should be heard and vote for change. I’m glad that we have finally made that step.

  18. Derek Wood Derek Wood says:

    Oil companies have spent so much on infrastructure in the oil sands… Millions upon millions of dollars… They will not leave Alberta because of a two percent raise in corporate tax.
    If the PC would have properly taken care of the finances and shown a strong in the black during these tough times, they would have been almost impossible to remove from office.

    [0]
    • They will not leave completely but there will be huge scale back in operations. There is not going to be the reinvestment, they will take the money they from oilsands and oil in general and invest it in other provinces.

    • Derek Wood Derek Wood says:

      It’s possible they will scale back.. Who knows.. Although 2% will add up to quite a bit of change on their revenues, but unless Saskatchewan starts developing their oils sands there isn’t really anywhere for them to go.

  20. This is what happen when you “tell people to look in the mirror”! The people in Edmonton has spoken….time for change!

  21. Shit, I worked for Syncrude for 5 years. They (and CNRL and Suncor and Shell and …) can’t really pack up their operations and go elsewhere.

  30. Pick a color any color, ehw, orange looks pretty. Just saying. Now look back east and west when the NDP ruled there and we grew up big and strong in the middle. It wasn’t because we had more resources, it was because we weren’t being crushed under by the big thumb of government.

  31. I just don’t understand why everyone is bitching. We asked for change and then we are going to complain about the change we get. So what funds get tight and we cut our cell phones off because we can’t pay that bill. That’s not poverty. It’s called sucking up what you can have. People do it all over the world with much less. I just want to see some support. If shit hits the fan and we don’t agree with the changed being made then take a stand and make the change.

    I am very happy with the results. It was way past time for a change in Alberta. Finally we have a gov’t that will look after the best interests of ALL Albertans. It is going to take time and hard work and we all need to participate in whatever ways we can. If we have ideas or complaints instead of just posting them on social media we need to copy and paste them to our MLA’s. Democracy works if we participate. The Alberta NDP is not the same gov’t that we’ve known. They ask questions, they listen, they work for making our lives better. Let’s help them do it!! I know I will because this is my Alberta too!
