The election of Wab Kinew’s NDP government in Manitoba means there will no longer be three conservative Western premiers.

In the past, the conservative premiers of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta have presented a united front to the federal government on issues like rising crime rates and gun control. Manitoba also mounted its own opposition to the federal carbon tax.

However, David Leis of the Frontier Centre for Public Policy, which was founded in Winnipeg, said the more left-wing policies of the NDP will lead to a certain amount of tension.

“They will be in the classic tension between the environmental, social, ideological posture,” said Mr. Leis.
