Alberta Election 2015: Jim Prentice Compares Himself To Han Solo

EDMONTON - Alberta Premier Jim Prentice is comparing himself to roguish "Star Wars" character Han Solo.

Prentice says the derring-do Solo finds ingenious ways to save himself when his back is against the wall.

Prentice was asked about the movie reference because today, May 4, is an unofficial celebration of the "Star Wars" franchise.

It's the last day of campaigning in the month-long Alberta election.

Polls have put the Wildrose Party, the NDP and Prentice's Progressive Conservatives in a close race.

Prentice is urging Wildrose supporters and other fiscal conservatives to vote for his party to avoid an NDP government.
