Alberta returned to its conservative roots, electing United Conservative Party Leader Jason Kenney premier after he vowed to fight harder for the province's beleaguered energy industry.

Kenney defeated center-left incumbent Rachel Notley, 55, whose New Democratic Party snapped four decades of conservative rule in 2015.

Kenney's election may herald big changes for Alberta's energy industry, which produces more oil than most OPEC members and has the world's third-largest petroleum resources. He's vowed to get stalled pipelines built, scrap the province's carbon tax, and create a "war room" to hit back at anti-oil-sands campaigners. He also pledged to cut corporate taxes and balance the province's books in his first term.
