It remains to be seen what the reaction of the electorate in Alberta will be.

Already unemployment rises and many people lose their jobs in the high wage Oil industry. The NDP elected to power was as much about punishing the existing Government of the day for corruption and incompetence as anything and many took the attitude that "they would teach them a lesson" and then vote them back to power the next go round.

There will be a serious downturn in the economy for an extended period of time and the narrative will become "It due to environmentalists and regulations that limit our ability to extract resources and provide decent jobs for hard working Albertans."
