With Election Day only a few days away, Chris Henderson joins the Daveberta Podcast for a deep discussion about Alberta's election campaign, how we got here and the spicy scenarios that might become reality after the votes are counted on May 29. We also discuss what the possible election outcomes mean for United Conservative Party leader Danielle Smith and Alberta NDP Rachel Notley.

Chris is Chief Strategist & Partner at Y Station Communications & Research, a company that applies data and insights to work with clients to navigate critical decision making. He used to work on campaigns, but is long retired from that kind of action because he doesn’t need that kind of stress at his age.

The Daveberta Podcast is hosted by Dave Cournoyer and produced by Adam Rozenhart. This episode was recorded on May 24, 2023.
