If PC Leader Jim Prentice is trying to shore up conservative support in Calgary even at the expense of progressive voters in Edmonton, it won't work according to the NDPs Rachel Notley.
Notley was in Calgary where she talked about the need to hire more teachers to make way for the influx of students to Alberta.
Yesterday, Prentice announced measures aimed at controlling government costs by bringing in a freeze on pay increases for public servants.
Some believe the announcement signals a strategy shift aimed at solidifying conservative support in Calgary, even if it undermines left wing support in Edmonton but Notley says Prentice is just out of touch with what Albertans want.
"They don't want repeat of the slash and burn of the 90s that we're still paying for so its not about Calgary vs Edmonton, it's about hearing what Albertans have said they want or ignoring them. I think he's made a clear statement that it's the latter," said Notley.
Notley and the NDP have high hopes for a breakthrough in Calgary where the party drew a big crowd at a rally last week.
