Jim Prentice to run in Calgary-Foothills in Oct. 27 by-election

Byelections next month will fill four vacant seats in the legislature


 

CALGARY — Alberta Premier Jim Prentice says byelections to fill four vacant seats in the legislature will be held Oct. 27.

Prentice says he will run in the constituency of Calgary-Foothills.

The seat opened when Independent Len Webber stepped down this morning to run federally.

Other Tory byelection candidates include police Sgt. Mike Ellis in Calgary-West, one-time school board chairman Gordon Dirks in Calgary-Elbow and former Edmonton mayor Stephen Mandel in Edmonton-Whitemud.

Dirks and Mandel were brought into cabinet by Prentice earlier this month as education and health ministers, respectively.

Calgary-West became vacant when former energy minister Ken Hughes resigned today to go back to the private sector.

  1. Prentice is a Liberal in a blue suit.

    He wants to do to Alberta what McGuinty did to Ontario.

    Shut down coal fired power plants and replace them with uneconomic subsidized high priced wind and solar.

    Calgary-Foothills residents don’t vote for this clown Prentice, vote Wild Rose, keep this ass hat out.
