Updated: Alberta NDP Gets Their Weasel On, Deletes Platform & Candidate Biographies From Their Website!

Wait, where did it go?

Wait, where did it go?

The results are in on Alberta’s election and it’s official, Hell has finally frozen over and the province has elected an NDP government. As expected, NDP voters are overjoyed, so much that they’ve ignored one of their most beloved issues- the first-past-the-post system has resulted in the NDP winning with less than 50% of the vote.

Curiously, less than two hours after the election closed, the Alberta NDP has now erased all of it’s candidate profiles from their website. What does this mean? One person speculated on Twitter that “Scrubbing their website on elxn night suggests they will revise their platform in light of a huge victory”.

One thing we can deduct from this weasel-like action for certain is that the Alberta NDP have a poor understanding of how the Internet works- you can’t just delete a webpage and expect it will be gone forever, there’s a wonderful site called Archive.org that’s backed-up many of the Internet’s more popular websites, the Alberta NDP’s is one of them.

So, what are the Alberta NDP trying to hide? The first step to figuring this out is to check-out the archive pages. I’ve listed them all below- please let me know if there’s anybody I missed. The first thing they deleted was their platform! If you’re curious why, here’s the archive:
