Sometime after the next UCP Leadership election. Kenney’s successor probably won’t call it until/unless the UCP poll numbers improve, could take until the the mandated date still, maybe earlier.

We need an indication of which candidates do not support women’s reproductive rights or more specifically, those that are pro-abortion.

It’s going to be a walk over for the UCP. Look at all the damage they’ve done,cuts to jobs deindexing to Aish and the list goes on

Haha the Libs lost their only young bright hope. Zak just that he is seeking the Green Party nomination for city centre. Hate to say it but if they can’t keep young people there (fill in the blank)

Are we truly the forgotten corner of Alberta? I don’t see Medicine Hat on your list? So for Brooks – Medicine Hat the NDP candidate is Gwendolyn Dirk – and she’s amazing 🙂

Please remove “zak”. He is not a liberal but a traitor that’s no different than Danielle Smith floor crossing. I hope he loses!

I was considering moving back to Alberta in May; now I’ll be waiting.

There is no way I can, with any conscience, be in the same province as “boobs on the bus”, Danielle “Taylor-Greene” Smith. She’s the utter epitome of lunacy.

An apology a day.
1 – “sovereignty watered down”
2 – “unvaccinated most oppressed group”
3 – “Ukrainians actually good, Russians bad” (realizes that Canada has the largest diaspora of Ukrainians in the world)
4 – “oops about those two links to that anti-Semitic website”

20 October actually was the first day she DIDN’T have to apologize for something.

Two candidates vying for the NDP Nomination in West Yellowhead: Fred Kreiner from Jasper and Lavone Olson from Brule. Decision day is December 8.

Landen Tischer is confirmed the candidate for Athabasca-Barrhead-Westlock’s NDP. Confirmed yesterday, 2/25/23

There are 4 confirmed contestants for the Grande Prairie UCP nomination. The one missing from the list above is current GP City Councillor, Gladys Blackmore.
