    The next election could happen on, before or even AFTER May 31, 2019. Fixed election dates are not binding given the abuses of the past.

    Stephen Mandel has said he will seek the AB Party nomination in Edmonton-McClung, whether he wins the leadership or not.

    “Mandel says even if he loses the leadership race, he will run for the Alberta Party in the 2019 election in his home riding of Edmonton-McClung, which is currently held by NDP backbencher Lorne Dach.”

    Sharon Smith will be seeking the UCP nomination in Leduc/Beaumont. She ran in this riding as a Wildrose Candidate last provincial election, finishing second to the NDP candidate

    Calgary – Peigan
    Spelling correction of (Piegan). Assuming that the word Peigan came from the Peigan Nation which is now known as the Piikani Nation of the Blackfoot confederacy. This would be one of those I before E except after C, or, or, or, or exceptions.

    David Dorward is recycling himself as a UCP nominee after being defeated in 2015 by Marlin Schmidt, now a Minister in the Notley government. I hope someone else runs against Dorward as he cannot win with his record.

      Well, Dorward got nominated so Alex got that wrong. Remember he had pink hair! What a goon. Marlin Schmidt will be tough to beat and Dorward did such a crap job with Premier Build-my-Penthouse 2011-2015 that Marlin is a shoe-in!

    I noticed Edmonton Strathcona is missing from this list. Are there any candidates for this riding yet?

    Hi Dave,

    Great job on your website. I appreciate how you keep Albertans informed.

    I am running as the nominee candidate for the UCP in the Maskwacis-Wetaskiwin constituency. Can you please change my name into a link for sandrakim.ca.

    Thank you,
