With the election craze finally coming to an end, I hope that all Albertans will be able to move forward.

This election period was one of the most brutal I’ve seen in my short time as an eligible voter.

The amount of hate that was spread around the province for the duration of the campaign was the most I’ve ever seen.

Most people felt this election was one of the most important elections Alberta has had in long time and I think there’s weight to that but that’s not what I want to talk about.

I want to talk about how even though not everyone is happy with the outcome; there are ways to move forward with the common goal of making Alberta a better province to live in.

We definitely won’t be able to accomplish this is if everyone continues their Twitter wars on the results of the election.

In my short period as an eligible voter, I don’t think I’ve seen so much hatred between voters of different parties.

It’s okay to have passion for what you believe in but when that passion boils over into name-calling and even fear mongering, that passion’s gone too far.

Alberta can only be as strong as it’s people and if Albertans can’t get past who our new premier is we will never have the means necessary to strengthen our province.

Regardless of who you voted for, let’s now set our focus on making Alberta the best it can be and that has to start with coming together.

We don’t necessarily have to put our views aside but we do have to mold them together in a way that everyone can be prosperous in this province.

Alberta has potential; let’s help Jason Kenney reach it by banding together.
