Beyond the Headlines: Learning from the Historic Alberta Election


Alberta's historic election results called for analysis and discussion.

The Broadbent Institute and the SFU School of Public Policy co-hosted Beyond the Headlines: Learning about Alberta's Historic Election.

The panel discussion of politicos and campaigners discussed what happened in this past election that ended 44 years of Progressive Conservative Party rule of Alberta -- and how that shift led to an NDP majority.


  • Gerry Scott, Alberta NDP campaign director
  • Kerry Towle, former Wildrose and PC MLA, Innisfail-Sylvan Lake
  • Mike McDonald, Principal, Rosedeer Strategies Inc., and Campaign Director, BC Liberal 2013 election
  • Anne McGrath, 2015 National Campaign Director, New Democratic Party of Canada
