My gut feeling is that the UCP will win this election, but it'll be close. As much of a downer as it could be for some, it still marks a big change in the Alberta political landscape. Whether one prefers the NDP or UCP, it's always better to have a close election rather than a usual landslides we've had so many times in the past. It'll hopefully keep the UCP in line, and also send a message. Calgarians might like fiscal conservatives, but they don't necessarily like social conservatives. These next few years are going to be interesting.Things are not looking up for the good guys Every opinion poll since the debate shows a UCP lead.
