Alberta's Progressive Conservatives defeat Wildrose neocons

The country's most right-wing major political party fell far short of the mark in the Alberta election yesterday.

The neocon Wildrose party, led by former Fraser Institute intern Danielle Smith, took only 17 seats and just over 34 percent of the vote. That was way behind the 61 Progressive Conservative MLAs that were elected under the leadership of the more moderate Alison Redford.

The Liberals, headed by Raj Sherman, took five seats. The NDP, led by Brian Mason, won four constituencies.
