Marlene Poitras, Alberta Regional Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, provided this statement last evening on the results of the Alberta election:

Major news stations have declared Jason Kenney Premier elect for Alberta, and the UCP (United Conservative Party) has formed the majority government.

I would like to offer my congratulations to the Premier elect and all the candidates who ran in the provincial election.

I look forward to working with the new government and I commit to continuing to advocate vigorously for respect and recognition of First Nations rights as well as calling for action on issues that matter to First Nations.
