    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.

    Reply
    1. Janet

      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!

        Not to nitpick at all but the error is too gross to let pass. Marlin Schmidt is a “shoo-in”. Dorward might not be a great candidate but when Notley was elected she had about 6 bonafide cabinet ministers so maybe the tide will raise all boats and the Kenney effect will resonate even though individual nomination candidates aren’t that great.

    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,

    Can anyone explain why the conservatives were wiped out in 2015? Was it a sudden shift in ideology or corruption?

    Reply
    1. Harley Endersby

      I don’t think it was the ideology, mostly greed, arrogance and the history of corruption. They had no plan and no trust.

        Redford was a leftist PCA who would have been more at home with the LIberals. Prentice was more centrist but the well had been poisoned by Redford AND with the Wildrose floor crossers. Then Jim made his look in the mirror retort and called an election a year ahead of schedule trying to take advantage of Wildrose disorganization which resulted in the 3 way vote split that was a benefit to at least 20 NDP that were elected when the conservative vote was evenly fractured. RIP Jim Prentice but you miscalculated.

        Reply
    2. K Foon Der

      Vote split between PCA and WRP (27% vs 24%) combined it should have been 51% conservative vote. Where the NDP candidate got more than 30% of the vote in a riding it often beat the two conservative parties. A number of voters voted NDP to teach the governing PCA a lesson. Boy did they ever teach them a lesson. That is why Jason Kenney saw the solution as a re-unified conservative party. Those not happy with some of Jason’s decisions and policies may well vote NDP. Alberta Party or Liberal but it takes roughly 40% of the vote to win a majority. The polls have shown the UCP higher than 40% since 2017 when the parties voted to merge and then elect Jason Kenney as leader.

    I believe the revised count of UCP nominations is 55/86 with 31 to be announced. Someone mentioned that one CA was missing – Innisfail/Sylvan Lake currently held by Devin Dreeshan who won the bye-election after Don MacIntyre and Brian Jean both resigned. Goodridge had to re-win the nomination and won while Dreeshan’s status has not been announced. If he has to face a nomination contest he will sit as an MLA for the first time on Oct. 29th not knowing whether he will be able to run in the spring election. At least Goodridge knows she will be around to run in the election. She won 66% of the vote in the bye-election while Dreeshan crushed Nicole Money with 80% of the vote. It was announced that Mooney was elected to the NDP executive even though she is a pro-life Catholic.

    I printed the whole list to count for myself and have a different total for UCP nominated candidates than Daveberta.ca. The list should be 58 UCP nominated with 28 nominations not yet complete. Calgary Cross nomination is November 3rd. Calgary Currie is November 5th, Morinville-St Albert is November 5&6. That would bring the UCP nominations to 61 with 25 yet to go. [5 in Calgary, 8 in Edmonton city, 3 in greater Edmonton, 2 in Lethbridge]. Innisfail-Sylvan Lake is still not on the list of constituencies.

    Reply
  16. Foon Der

    Still missing is the Innisfail-Sylvan Lake CA, UCP nominations are now correct 60 nominated and 26 nominations yet to be held. NDP nominated is correct at 24 with 18 CA nominations yet to be held. There are 44 CAs where the NDP have not listed a nominated candidate or nomination contest.

    Seems odd that the NDP have only nominated 33 at this late date so unlikely to be a March drop of the writ?

    I’d like to inform you that I’ve withdrawn my nomination for representing the NDP in Calgary Fish Creek. Due to personal circumstances I am unable to commit the time, energy and financial resources needed to run an effective campaign. I will continue to serve on the Constituency Association and I plan to be an active supporter of any future NDP candidate in this riding.
    Thanks,
    Gurmit Bhachu
