It had to be one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen on TV. So beautiful I almost couldn't believe it.
I just sat there stunned.
But it was true. What once seemed like an impossible dream had actually happened.
Rachel Notley and the NDP had crushed the Cons to smithereens, and turned Alberta ORANGE.
Albertans have chosen a new political path with the stunning election of a New Democratic government, ending a Progressive Conservative dynasty in power for more than four decades.
“I think we might have made a little bit of history tonight,” Ms. Notley said in her victory speech. “I believe that change has finally come to Alberta.”
I can't congratulate Notley and the NDP enough for such a stunning victory. Or congratulate the people of Alberta enough for choosing hope over fear.
Take that Jim Prentice...
Or thank them all enough for making my spirits soar.
Because I know that what happened in Alberta last night, will have a big effect on a country just a few months away from an election.
I know that if the people of that province can vote for change, and choose hope over fear, so can the rest of us.
And you can be sure he knows that too...
And is in such a state of shock his PMO handlers must be changing his diapers every
Because as I said the other night, Harper knows that the winds of change are his most deadly enemy.
Knows that once they start blowing there's no stopping them.
They can make an old and corrupt dictator looked even more dilapidated...
And even more good to go.
And if those winds of change can bring down a rotting Con dynasty, they can bring down a rotting Con regime.
So you can imagine how he must be feeling...
Gosh. Isn't change wonderful?
And did it ever look better than this?
Way to go Rachel. Way to go NDP. Way to go Albertans.
Way to go all those Liberal and Green supporters who helped bring down the Cons.
Hope is better than fear.
Party like I know you can. You deserve it.
Soon it will be our turn...
