NDP Loses Two Seats in Alberta
NDP leader Brian Mason and newcomer Rachel Notley won seats for the NDP last night, but former NDP leader Ray Martin and rookie MLA David Eggen unexpectedly went down to defeat. The only party feeling worse than the NDP today is the Alberta Liberal Party, who dropped from 16 seats to just eight. (Whereas the NDP was expected to simply hold onto its base, the Liberals were actually expected to increase their seat total).
