Alberta's election has B.C.'s full attention - because no matter who wins, it will have direct consequences here.
No matter which party you hope wins, odds are you’re watching closely.
The Alberta election is in full swing, as NDP Premier Rachel Notley and United Conservative leader Jason Kenney duke it out in a no-holds-barred campaign battle. In 2015, Notley rode a centre-right vote split to the NDP’s first-ever victory in Alberta, but polls show she faces an uphill battle for re-election.
