Welcome to the New Premier of Alberta

I wanted to be there for this historical moment and obviously so did a few other people. The public was invited this afternoon to the swearing-in of the new Premier of Alberta, Rachel Notley the leader of the New Democrat party. She also announced her new ministers. Amazingly, the ND party won a majority government after 42 years of governing by the Progressive Conservatives.I never dreamed that I would see this in my lifetime.It was exciting to be there, to hear the new ministers being announced and to hear the cheering from the crowd. Some are predicting doom and gloom and admittedly we have a couple of immature people in caucus but that isn’t the first time that has happened.Let us wait and see, especially in Education, Energy, Health and the Environment.

Some of the crowd of people that showed up to the event.

  1. Wow that is neat. I never was even in DC when a president was sworn in.

    • This is the first time a swearing -in of a premier has been done outside in view of the public. The sound system did not work well, but I heard a lot and enjoyed the event.
