Hon. David G. Hancock, QC, MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Edmonton-Whitemud
It was a nice clean exercise for students of parliamentary democracy yeserday with the PC vote in Round one. Leaving us with Candidates Doug Horner, Gary Mar, & Alison Redford. Although PC Party members should be ashamed that only 59,000 of them voted. Considering all of the money, time, & resources that candidates have spent on this race, that figure was an embarrassment quite frankly (down from 97,000 in MMVI.)
That being said, its still VI.Vx more than voted in the Alberta Liberal Leader's race. So we should encourage students of all ages to vote in Round two on October Ist. I think its great that XVI year old kids can vote in our Leader's race, as well as permanent residents. This gives our leadership a really great feel of having a multicultural voice. Yesterday in mt polling station of Edmonton-Meadowlark, we had people voting all the way from XVI year old students, right up to the Former Premier Don Getty & his gorgeous bride Margaret.
Thanks IV Voting Everyone,
