Alberta Liberal candidate set to create political diversity

The Liberal Party is looking to bounce back from a dismal performance in last year’s federal election and, according to local candidate Harvey Locke, that resurgence starts with a win in the newly vacant seat of Calgary-Centre.

A well-known figure in the Bow Valley through his environmental efforts as well as having resided in Banff for numerous years, Locke secured the nod to represent the Liberals to contend for the seat left open by Lee Richardson, who is now the principal secretary for Premier Alison Redford.

Running on a campaign that emphasizes redefining what a 21st century Liberal is, the newly-chosen candidate is confident his party’s values are what the majority of Albertans want to see within their government. Read the full story at the Rocky Mountain Outlook.
