I’ve updated the list of nominated federal elections candidates in Alberta – with some help from Alice at punditsguide.ca – I’m hoping that it’s an accurate list of voter seekers. Here are some of the updates:
– Former NDP MLA Ray Martin is seeking the NDP nomination in Edmonton-East. Martin served as Leader of the Official Opposition from 1984 to 1993 and NDP leader from 1984 to 1994. He was elected MLA for Edmonton-Norwood from 1982 to 1993 and Edmonton-Beverly-Clareview from 2004 to 2008. In March 2008, he was defeated by Tory Tony Vandermeer. Martin has previously federally in Edmonton-North (1997) and Edmonton-Centre East (2000).
And on the topic of a federal election… Stéphane Dion is in Edmonton this week to talk about his Green Shift tax plan. He’ll be in town Monday, July 7 at the Polish Hall 10960 – 104 Street from 6pm to 8pm.
