Some days it seems as if everyone and their brother is moving to Alberta. And it's not hard to see why.

Besides being an economic powerhouse and a showcase of natural beauty, the province actually has some pretty awesome politicians.

OK, OK, we know what you're thinking: Alberta is super-duper conservative -- nothing but old, white dudes in suits talking about oil revenues.

And maybe that was the case in days gone by, but Alberta's economic boom is reshaping the province into a much more progressive place.

Alberta voted in new municipal governments Monday and the two big winners were young, forward-thinking mayors. Naheed Nenshi and Don Iveson are just a couple of the reasons why the rest of Canada should be super jealous of Alberta.
