EDMONTON — Former Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith says a change in government wouldn’t create chaos in Alberta.

Smith made the comment Sunday night as a member of a panel at the Spur Festival in Calgary. She described the amount of change within government if the PCs happen to lose the election on May 5, but added the system is designed to handle it.

The former Wildrose leader also found herself defending NDP Leader Rachel Notley’s position on pipelines.

Notley said she would pull government support for the Northern Gateway Pipeline to B.C., but does support the Kinder Morgan Pipeline in B.C. as well as the Energy East Pipeline.
