The article offers the author's insight on the impact of the municipal upheaval in Alberta, Canada on the call of the democratic voter's for political change. The author states that the fall of veteran public officials and the rise of newcomer politicians, such as Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi, may signal that a governmental change is needed. Roger Gibbins of Canada West Foundation adds that this change may not favor Progressive Conservative, a political party that has been in power for 40 years.
