The Liberal Party of Trudeau, the centre-left has basically built its relative majority in the eastern provinces of the Country, without winning almost any seats west of Ontario. The Liberals were not able at all to penetrate in the “Prairies” and it is not surprising that the strongest rejection of the federal government of Trudeau emerged in Alberta, a province that voted heavily for the Conservative Party.

We discussed all these issues with Derek Fildebrandt, who has been the member of Parliament of Alberta from 2015 to 2019, for the conservative party-libertarian Partly , and is now the editor of the magazine Western Standard.
