Alberta Tory Dynasty at Risk as Voters Seek Change

Updated on

Alberta, home to Canada’s vast oil sands, is preparing for a political shake-up for the first time in a generation as voters head to the polls Tuesday with surveys showing the Progressive Conservative’s 44-year dynasty may be coming to an end.

Premier Jim Prentice is seeking to extend his Conservative party’s reign with a 13th-consecutive majority. Polls show the Tories, as the party is known, trailing Rachel Notley’s New Democrats and the right-leaning Wildrose under Brian Jean.
