Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said he’s spoken to his caucus about Monday night’s election results and will address the media about it Tuesday afternoon.
Monday night’s election saw as a minority government. However, the party did not win a single seat in Alberta.
All but one of Alberta’s 34 ridings were won by the Conservatives. The only riding not won by a Conservative Heather McPherson was elected.
During the election campaign, Kenney spent time in Ontario and Manitoba, campaigning for the Conservatives. He has called a Liberal minority the worst case scenario for Alberta, given the Bloc Quebecois, NDP and Greens stated antipathy to new pipeline projects.
Kenney, a former Conservative MP and cabinet minister under former prime minister Stephen Harper, has also said a Liberal government would be debilitating to Alberta’s economy.
