Election Results!

The PCs defied earlier polling by taking home a strong majority in yesterday's election - they won 61 of the 87 seats. Their leader, Allison Redford, remains the Premier. The Wildrose party took 17 seats, the Liberals 5, the NDP 4.
As I mentioned on Sunday, I think this is good news for the oil sands. Redford has stressed cooperation with other provinces and the federal government, as summarized in this Financial Post article, as well as the importance of environmental programs and better educating the US and Europe on the impacts of the industry.
