Tomorrow she’ll be back in Calgary — a key battleground ahead of Tuesday’s election.

Notley says her team is feeling good on the ground and that the NDP is seeing a lot of volatility and movement among voter attitudes.

She once again took aim at Jason Kenney’s plans to aggressively go after pipeline critics and immediately proclaim a law that would block energy shipments to British Columbia.

Notley accused the United Conservative leader of political grandstanding and says his plans threaten to alienate the very people Alberta needs to have on-side to ensure its energy gets to market.

“He’s declaring a war in order to further national political objectives, but Alberta may well be the casualty in that,” she said Sunday.

“I don’t think that he’s prepared to stand up for Albertans. He’s just grandstanding.”
