Safe For Now

Along the David Thompson Highway.
Alberta is safe for now.
Premier Alison Redford was returned to power with enough of a majority to do most of what she wants to do.
Danielle Smith was elected and can now lead the Wildroses from the legislature. We can see her in action holding the PC's feet to the fire for not being conservative enough.
The Wildroses have enough seats to worry the Redford government in the way that a dog worries cattle.
This is healthy and good.
Redford accepts climate change is real and that human's take their fair share of blame for it. Smith said the science on this was unclear.
This leads me to my post title. Though hardly in the clear, Alberta's natural beauty and (mostly) fresh air and (many) clean (appearing) streams are (moderately) safe for now.

There's still lots of room to shake our Govt. up. there's lots of things to clean up.

I am glad at least Canada thinks the environment is important!

Hilary said...

Sometimes that's the best you can hope for.

Reb said...

At least there is someone to make them pause and look twice. It may not work, but, we can only hope.

It seems to me that this is the best result we could have hoped for. The WRP might just make the PC's a little more accountable.
Or not.

Red, we've got a decent-sized Opposition for a change. It will be interesting.
Tabor, some of us sure do.
Hilary, aye.
Reb, at least we have valid reason to hope.
Bag Lady, WRP will take the PCs to task, but over what is the question.
