Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs (SACPA)
LAST DAYS OF THE DYNASTY?All signs point to the end of the Alberta Conservative dynasty. The Stelmach government is out of favour with most Albertans. The Liberals now have four seats in Calgary, long known as Tory town. All across the province the political landscape is shifting. But where are voters shifting to? Are they considering the Liberals? the NDs? Or are they waiting for the Conservatives to redeem themselves? Looks like the voters have taken power back into their hands which means the next provincial election could provide a lot of surprises.Speaker: Gillian StewardGillian Steward is a Calgary author and journalist.
