Prime Minister and Greenpeace weigh in on Alberta PC election win

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is congratulating Alberta Premier Alison Redford on her election victory.

EDMONTON — Prime Minister Stephen Harper is congratulating Alberta Premier Alison Redford on her election victory.

Harper says he looks forward to working with Redford to promote jobs, growth and long-term prosperity in a time of global economic uncertainty.

At the opposite point of the political compass Greenpeace Canada is weighing in on Redford’s win over the upstart Wildrose party.

Mike Hudema, a Greenpeace spokesman, says Redford owes her victory to people who believe in protecting the environment, valuing diversity and preserving public health care.

And he says if the premier truly understands the science behind climate change Alberta must reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.

Redford is to hold a media availability in Calgary this morning.
