Alberta Premier Rachel Notley made the announcement shortly after her throne speech. In it she focused on what her government has accomplished over the past four years including building schools, hospitals and roads. She also says the NDP has offered strong support for seniors and students. The spring election will be the first for Jason Kenney and his United Conservative Party. Kenney says if he is elected, the UCP will eliminate the carbon tax, fight for our province's energy sector and cut taxes to get more Albertans working.
