Alison Redford says she can work with Liberals, NDP, but not Wildrose

Alberta Premier Alison Redford says her Progressive Conservatives could work with the NDP or the Liberals in the legislature — but not the Wildrose party.

EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Alison Redford says her Progressive Conservatives could work with the NDP or the Liberals in the legislature — but not the Wildrose party.

Redford says the values of her party clash so much with those of the Wildrose she doubts they could find common cause.

The issue of alliances and strategic voting on Monday have become topical in recent days because polls suggest Tories and Wildrose are so close in the polls, making a minority government a possibility.

Redford says she remains concerned about homophobic and racist remarks made by two Wildrose candidates.

Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith says those comments don’t represent what her party stands for, but says she won’t ask them to step down.

Redford says if those candidates were on her team, they would be removed.
