Book Launch! Orange Chinook: Politics in the New Alberta
2019-02-04 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MST
In 2015 the New Democratic Party won an unprecedented victory in Alberta. Defeating the progressive conservatives—who had won every provincial election since 1971—they formed an NDP government for the first time in Alberta history.
Join editors Duane Bratt, Keith Brownsey, Richard Sutherland, and David Taras to celebrate the launch of Orange Chinook – the first book to explore the ground-breaking 2015 provincial election with this fine degree of analysis and insight. Discover inside details of the PC and NDP campaigns, the ways in which both parties addressed uniquely Albertian issues from pipelines to the Carbon Tax, the different and sometimes conflicting interests of urban and rural votes, and much more.
