Stockwell Day on Western Canada's right-wing

Stockwell Day (Adrian Wyld/Canadian Press)
Pollsters said the Alberta election would be close.

As you've been hearing on the news, the upstart Wildrose Party lost, but not without capturing 34.5 per cent of the vote, failing in their charge to topple the Progressive Conservative dynasty in Alberta -- a dynasty that spanned four decades.

Stockwell Day is a former Okanagan MP, a former federal cabinet minister and former leader of the Canadian Alliance.

Before his federal career, Mr. Day was an MLA for the Progressive Conservatives in Alberta for 14 years, eight of those as a cabinet minister.

Daybreak host Chris Walker spoke to Stockwell Day on his thoughts on the Alberta election race, and his plans to help reunite B.C.'s right wing.
