Albertans who voted want equalization removed from Constitution

EDMONTON — The final results from Alberta’s equalization referendum show almost 62 per cent of those who voted want to see the principle of equalization removed from the Constitution.

A second referendum question to keep daylight time year-round failed by a whisker: 50.1 per cent to 49.9 per cent.

The votes were held a week earlier in conjunction with municipal and school board elections across the province.

More to come.
