Alberta Politics

Is Orange the New Blue in Alberta? My Nerd Nite talk on Sept 17.

Join me on Thursday, September 17, as I dive headfirst into my first talk at Nerd Nite Edmonton.  Here is what I will be talking about:

Is Orange really the new Blue? A look at what the heck is going on in Alberta politics in 2015

For forty-four years, politics in Alberta was dominated by one single conservative party. It was something that we had all become accustomed to and even six months ago it was almost hard to believe it would ever change. But the old system blew up in May 2015 when Albertans elected their first new government since 1971. Now politics in this province have been turned on its head. In my talk I will discuss the events that sparked the monumental shift in the 2015 provincial election, how Alberta politics has changed and how it could impact this year’s federal election.
