The Globe & Mail reports that Alberta Premier Jim Prentice is expected to call an early election on Tuesday morning.
This comes less than two weeks after his Progressive Conservative government unveiled a budget that The Rebel's Ezra Levant called "the worst budget in Alberta's history":
"It spends the most, taxes the most and has the largest deficit."
The Globe speculates that the province's New Democratic Party could become the official opposition "for the first time in decades. Mr. Prentice’s PCs have held power for nearly 44 years."
The Wildrose Party, meanwhile, "has said it will have candidates ready for each of the province’s 87 ridings by the end of the week."
A recent poll put the PCs and the Wildrose "in a dead heat at 24% support."
