CALGARY - Alberta NDP leader Rachel Notley is urging voters not to make the same mistake by giving the Progressive Conservatives another mandate.

Notley told supporters in Calgary that some people might be considering voting Wildrose as an alternative to the PCs.

But she says Wildrose leader Brian Jean and Premier Jim Prentice aren't that different.

Notley says the two men sat in the same Conservative caucus in Ottawa and voted the same way federally more than 600 times.

She says Jean wants to create a two-tier health system and to subsidize the wealthy so they can fly abroad for private surgeries.

Notley says both Wildrose and the PCs want to give corporations billions in tax giveaways and want to cut health care and education.
