Election numbers reality check

Mr. Sawchuk needs a reality check on his assertion that Rachel Notley and the NDP did not win the Alberta election.

Mr. Sawchuk needs a reality check on his assertion that Rachel Notley and the NDP did not win the Alberta election. His “facts and reality” are anything but. His vaunted Tories had the following results in the general elections for Canada for the Harper era:

 

• 2006 — minority government with 36.3 per cent of the vote.

 

• 2008 — minority government with 37.65 per cent of the vote.

 

• 2011 — majority government with 39.62 per cent of the vote

 

Rachel Notley and the NDP won in Alberta with 40.6 per cent of the vote, a better result than any by Harper’s Tories.
