Alberta Election: Map of riding results

The NDP have won 24.

She helped the NDP end decades of conservative rule in the province after winning in 2015. It was pointless, as well, for Notley to go to war with every non-Alberta wing of her party over the Leap-nobody who hates the idea of the Leap was ever going to start voting for her party.

Kenney, meanwhile, told the rally that Albertans took the challenge of climate change seriously, adding without elaborating, "we are world leaders in innovating to reduce emissions".

"It has been an honour to serve as your premier and it will be an honour to serve as the leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition".

And as the premier-designate promised Alberta more jobs, pipelines, and a stronger position against the federal government, the outgoing premier addressed her own supporters. We all do. We must. "And we saw the people of Alberta soundly reject that division".

On a colour map of Tuesday's election result, Edmonton is an island of NDP orange in an ocean of UCP blue.

But both parties have also done a fair share of name calling: Kenney has been accusing Notley of being too cozy with Prime Minister Trudeau, while Kenney's anti-abortion stance and track record with LGBT issues has been used to try and turn Albertans away from him. Kenney's Alberta election victory sent ripples of enthusiasm and concern across Canada Wednesday.

"We've had enough of your campaign of defamation and double standards", said Kenney.

The gradual disappearance of women from the ranks of Canada's premiers raises questions about society's willingness to embrace true equality, former female leaders and political pundits said.

That election saw Peter Lougheed and the PC Party re-elected, winning 75 of the then 79 seats in the legislature.

Calgary is seen by many as the key battleground in the election.

A baby sleeper that has been linked to more than 30 infant deaths in the United States has been recalled in Australia. The AAP does not recommend any sleeping products for infants or any products that require restraining a baby.

The four-week campaign focused on personal attacks and on Alberta's fragile economy, which has been struggling with sluggish oil prices and unemployment levels above seven per cent in Calgary and Edmonton.

Nearly 700,000 people voted in advance polls, well above the record 235,000 who did in 2015.

Alberta's economic malaise has taken a toll on jobs and, despite some flirtation with recovery, employment numbers haven't provided much joy recently.

And this for Ottawa: "We have a federal government that has made this bad situation worse". Notley, 54, has said those plans favour only the wealthy and would harm the province's health care and education systems.

Horgan also suggested some of Kenney's comments may be bluster and campaign rhetoric.

"He won his seat, I'm not aware of any accusations against Peter, so this is a gentleman who was elected to the legislature last night", Kenney said when asked about Singh's win in the Calgary-East riding.

Kenney regards Rachel Notley's efforts to win political and public support for pipelines with her carbon tax strategy as a waste of time.

Next door in Ontario, Tory premier Doug Ford welcomed Kenney's opposition to the federal carbon tax.

And while it will keep the general minimum wage at $15 an hour, the UCP wants to create a $13 an hour wage for those 17 years of age and under as way to "incentivize" the creation of youth employment. Farm safety and injury compensation plans for farm workers are to be abolished and replaced.

A sweeping overhaul of school curriculums is also expected to be on hold. He hopes to be able to speak with the B.C. government and work out their differences - all the while armed with the new legislation. He has said he will proclaim a law passed by Notley's government but never proclaimed.
