Premier Jim Prentice, shortly after assuming the leadership of Alberta’s long-established Progressive Conservatives, has introduced a tough budget and called an election, gambling that he can capitalize on the seeming weakness of his rivals on both the right and the left. While most expect the PCs to win, some warn that this election might finally see the end of an Albertan political dynasty.

Nova Scotia 2013
Four years after sweeping to power, the Dexter led NDP are fighting for their political lives. Public disenchantment with business-friendly subsidies, a broken no tax increase promise and an MLA expense scandal has made this election an up hill battle for the incumbent New Democrats.
*Still to be fixed
•Election night starts at 7:00 but vote count begins at 8:00
•More issues could be added
Canada – 1997
Prime Minister Jean Chrétien seeks his second term. The PC party, led by the popular Jean Charest, is hoping to rebound from its disastrous 1993 campaign. Can the Reform Party displace the Bloc and become the Official Opposition? Will the NDP be able to build a strong base in the Maritimes, and regain lost ground?
Canada – 2000
The newly formed Canadian Alliance hope that recently elected leader Stockwell Day will lead them to a breakthrough in Ontario. The PC party, led by former Prime Minister Joe Clark, and the NDP led by Alexa McDonough hope to retain official party status. The Bloc hopes to rebound in Québec under Gilles Duceppe’s leadership. Will Chrétien rise above them all and gain his third term?
Canada – 2004
What seemed a coronation walk has turned into a struggle for a majority government. Plagued for months by scandal, Martin has dropped the writ for a late spring election, but will Harper, Duceppe, and Layton have the best of it?
Canada – 2004
Canada – 2006
With the NDP withdrawing its support from the minority Liberal government, the country is plunged into a winter election. Will Harper succeed on his second attempt, or will the Liberals survive the Gomery scandal intact?
Canada – 2008
Despite fixed election legislation, Stephen Harper has called an election over a year early. With the Liberals in disarray, the Bloc Quebecois losing strength, and the NDP and Greens gaining strength at the expense of the Liberals, the conditions seem right for the Conservatives to win a majority. Will Harper preside over the first Conservative majority in a decade and a half?
