Election Coverage is Coming!
Full election coverage is coming! I am sitting here trying to sum up the events from last night, yet words are escaping me. It was quite a night for politics in Alberta. The big story is of course the (not so) surprising victory by Naheed Nenshi to become Calgary’s next mayor. A bid that seemed to be impossible when Nenshi announced, he came from a distant third to beat McIver and Higgins. In addition there were some very close and interesting aldermanic races.
Posts are on the way to breakdown the results from all the races and to discuss the impact of the results. As well there were close finishes in many other Alberta communities, and some of those races will be noted as well.
I have coffee in hand and am furiously typing, so be patient and a full breakdown will be up shortly!
