Forget that the last election was the most important one in your lifetime. This one, they will tell you, is more important and the next one will likely be important again. No matter where you live, in every provincial and federal election there is an undercurrent of urgency and impending doom.

Alberta was once the bastion of conservative philosophy. The Progressive Conservatives held power for 44 years until Rachel Notley showed up in 2015. The only places with more single party longevity in the world during those years were Cuba and North Korea - both being communist, authoritarian and undemocratic.

Josh Andrus from Project Confederation joins us to give us an overview of what issues Albertans will be taking with them to the ballot box on Monday.

Affordability is big one, we talk about how responsible fiscal policy at home can protect Albertans from reckless monetary policy in Ottawa. We also talk about decentralization and inescapable underlying theme of tension between Ottawa and Alberta.
