“There is a generally accepted way to run political campaigns. You take stock of your competitors, and you find ways to discredit their character and you impugn their records. You build yourself up on their misfortune,” said Iveson during his acceptance speech.

“We ran a different campaign.”

“I want to thank the more than 200,000 Edmontonians, voters, who participated today, for inspiring us, and for allowing us to inspire you,” he added.

“Thank you first to my colleagues Karen Leibovici and Kerry Diotte for their public service,” said Iveson.
