Nelson-Creston MLA Michelle Mungall is thrilled with the result of the Alberta election.

Mungall congratulates Alberta

Nelson-Creston MLA was pleased with the election of an NDP government led by Rachel Notley.

Alberta-raised MLA Michelle Mungall is congratulating her birth province for electing its first New Democrat government.

“Voters in Alberta made a clear decision, and they chose Rachel Notley and the Alberta New Democrats,” said Mungall, Nelson-Creston’s representative in the BC legislature since 2009. “My parents, aunts, cousins in Alberta told me that they wanted a premier with a vision for the future and knew Notley would deliver.

“I’m looking forward to working with the new Alberta government for the betterment of Western Canada in the years ahead.”

Notley is Alberta’s premier-elect after her party captured 54 of 87 seats in Tuesday’s provincial election.
