Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's already shaky bid to persuade Canadians to fight climate change will get even tougher after the election on Tuesday of conservative Jason Kenney as premier of the energy-rich province of Alberta. Notley said her success working with Trudeau - or picking her fights with him as necessary - is what led to progress on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion to the B.C. coast. "And today, Alberta is a better place because of it".

The campaign also served as a test with Alberta voters for Mr Kenney and his newly formed UCP, founded in 2017 with the merger of two right-leaning provincial political parties.

NDP Leader Rachel Notley has retained her seat of Edmonton-Strathcona in the Alberta provincial election. "That was a protest vote, this is a positive vote", said Marguerite Denis, who co-managed the campaign of one UCP candidate.

In 1905 and 1913 the Liberals took power with the Progressive Conservatives in opposition, while in 1993 it was the PC's forming a majority government with the Liberals in opposition.

Alberta's incoming premier says the province is open for business.

Kenney and his United Conservative Party won, or were leading in 63 of 87 ridings, or local elections.

Vitalik Buterin and Erik Voorhees support Binance’s decision to delist Bitcoin SV
Prior to delisting BSV, Binance's CEO, CZ, had warned BSV creator Craig Wright , to not call himself Satoshi or sue people. A strong reaction to the delisting has also emerged and claims of censorship were at the forefront of the argument.


The leaders are expected to have a phone exchange on Wednesday afternoon. Suncor Energy was up 1.2% at C$44.47, Cenovus Energy surged 2.8% to C$13.53, and Canadian Natural Resources Limited was up 2.5% at C$41.51.

"Maybe we all agree, but nothing happens as a result", he said.

The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers also welcomed the UCP win.

Khan says while the party will not have a member in the legislature for the first time in 30 years, the Liberals will rebuild and be back.

"In Ottawa, we have a federal government that has made this bad situation... much worse, killing two pipelines, including Energy East", Kenney said, only to be interrupted with roars: "Build that pipe!"

"This is a pretty clear mandate for the UCP".

Notley's New Democrats have been swept from power in the Alberta election by Jason Kenney and the United Conservatives. It was pointless, as well, for Notley to go to war with every non-Alberta wing of her party over the Leap-nobody who hates the idea of the Leap was ever going to start voting for her party.

Notley's government introduced a carbon tax to help cut emissions of greenhouse gases, a measure Kenney promised to scrap.

"By his personal conviction, for example, when he was immigration minister, he set out to modify the testing and materials that the federal government distributed to immigrants because he believed it was the right thing to promote a unifying identity in a country", Navarro-Génie said.

The federal government has said all provinces need to come on board with a carbon pricing plan or else Ottawa will impose a framework.

"The twinning of the Trans Mountain pipeline is focused on export of a diluted bitumen, or a raw product", said B.C. premier John Horgan.

Kenney's next campaign is aimed at the perceived enemies of Alberta, from the David Suzuki Foundation to multinational banks to the federal government. The project also faces fierce opposition from environmentalists and indigenous groups.
