This 1 Cartoon Perfectly Sums Up The Alberta Election

Bruce MacKinnon does it again.

There was no shortage of articles, opinions and analysis this week that aimed to break down the stunning election results in Alberta, where an NDP majority government will end 44 years of Progressive Conservative power.

But sometimes even a simple comic, like the one below by Bruce MacKinnon, can sum up a colossal political shift.


Reddit user pixelpumper shared the image by MacKinnon, a Halifax Chronicle Herald cartoonist, on Reddit Friday, although some didn't understand the reference.

"Context for this one?" one user wrote.

Another user put it this way: "After over four decades of electing a right-wing government, Alberta has turned left."
