Recent elections of conservative governments in a number of provinces have shown the underlying divisions between ideological, policy and federal positions in Canada. Following four years of Liberal Government in Ottawa, the 2019 election has already sparked tensions regarding immigration, climate change, fiscal federalism and ethics, but at its heart are core issues of identity, party affiliation, leadership and (as always) money. This panel will explore the issues emerging in the upcoming election, with a particular emphasis upon Western Canada, Albertan conservatism and Alberta’s place in Confederation.
