Liberals nominate 3 new candidates in Alberta, NDP to hold contested nomination vote in Edmonton-Mill Woods

It’s been eight days since the federal election was called but most parties are still nominating candidates in Alberta, a province where barring a catastrophe (or a miracle – depending on your political inclinations) the Conservatives are expected to be elected in most of the electoral districts.

Here are the latest federal candidates to be nominated in Alberta:

  • The Liberal Party has nominated Abdifatah Abdiin in Fort McMurray-Cold Lake, Irene Walker in Sturgeon River-Parkland, and Sheila Schumacher in Yellowhead.
  • The federal NDP have a contested nomination race in Edmonton-Mill Woods. Nigel Logan and Satbir Singh will face an online vote of the local membership on August 25.
  • The Green Party has nominated Kerri Coombs in Red Deer-Lacombe and Sheldon Perris in Sherwood Park-Fort Saskatchewan.
  • The People‚Äôs Party completed its slate of 34 candidates in Alberta with the nomination of Shawn McDonald in Fort McMurray-Cold Lake.
  • The Rhinoceros Party has nominated Vanessa Wang in Calgary-Nose Hill.
