Jason Kenney won big - and the Ottawa-Alberta relationship is about to get unruly - 2019-04-17
The New Democrats' defeat in last night's Alberta provincial election marked the end of a remarkable chapter in the province's politics — Alberta's first-ever NDP government.
The arrival of a new provincial conservative government, meanwhile, could mark the start of a new chapter in federal politics.
Premier-designate Jason Kenney left behind a decade-long stint in federal politics to help create the United Conservative Party and bring it to power. Veteran politics-watchers say his high national profile, and strong ties to provincial and federal conservatives, will ensure he remains an influential player on the national political scene.
