Billy Bragg, Braids, Tegan and Sara Weigh In on Landmark Alberta Election
Yesterday (May 6), the NDP won a majority government in Alberta's provincial election, with leader Rachel Notley scoring a decisive victory and toppling the long-reigning Progressive Conservatives.

The news even made waves internationally, with British political songwriter Billy Bragg congratulating the NPD.
