When she finally made the announcement that she would be resigning, a stream of hashtags ranging from #RedfordResigns to #abpoli began trending all over Canada.

Redford said she would be stepping down effective Sunday and that she is "not prepared to allow party and caucus infighting to get in the way of buidling a better future for our province and all Albertans."

The Calgary Journal took a look at some of the immediate reactions from social media including everyone from Calgary's Mayor Naheed Nenshi to B.C. premier Christy Clark.
