Kevin Libin: On election day, Alberta confronts the betrayal that Notley made possible

CALGARY — The Alberta NDP’s election ad wrapped over the front page of Saturday’s Calgary Herald warned that Jason Kenney was “TOO RISKY” for Calgary. One reason, it said, was Kenney’s “Reckless stunts on the Trans Mountain Pipeline.” By contrast, Premier Rachel Notley, the ad said, stands for “getting pipelines built.”

Even Canadians outside of Calgary are probably aware that no actual pipelines were built in the four years that Notley’s government ruled Alberta. But that’s the circular logic her NDP had resorted to using to try narcotizing Albertans into almost believing otherwise, as they headed into election day on Tuesday.
