Redford fails to set a date

Premier Alison Redford is defending her decision to legislate flexible fixed election dates.
A bill expected to be introduced into the House of Commons on Monday would cement when Albertans go to the polls, a  window in March every four years.
"Part of the reason for that, if we look at what goes on around our province, partly because we're an agricultural province and partly because we end up sometimes with natural disasters we have to deal with, I think there needed to be some flexibility, that any future Premier needed to have, to make sure the election didn't interfere with those circumstances," said Redford.
The Opposition had long called for the changes, saying their campaign planning and recruitment is at the whim of the governing party.
