Paul Hinman, outgoing leader of the right-wing Wildrose Alliance party has won a provincial by-election in Calgary. Hinman was elected in 2004 for the Alberta Alliance, and became it's only MLA. Hinman later ran for and won the leadership of that party, which merged with the Wildrose Alliance prior to the 2008 election. Hinman narrowly lost his seat in that election and has stepped down as leader, but now finds himself back in the legislature as his party's only representative. This is viewed as a bad sign for Alberta Pramier Ed Stelmach
