Allison Redford beat perceived frontrunner Gary Mar to take the leadership of Alberta’s Progressive Conservative Party after a close race that wasn’t decided until the early hours of Sunday morning. Redford will become Alberta’s first female premier. The 46-year-old family and human rights lawyer held a press conference Sunday morning, telling reporters in Edmonton that she plans to establish family care clinics and restore $100 million in education cuts. However, she won’t call another session at the provincial legislature until next year, when she will present a budget and call a general election. Redford indicated that she will invite Mar and other leadership candidates to take positions in her cabinet.
