The Alberta Progressive Conservative leadership race picked up two more candidates on Thursday.
Former tourism minister Richard Starke, who is the MLA for Vermilion Lloydminster, announced he will be running. He says he has been involved with the PC’s since his teens. “Understanding the issues that face our province and finding ways to make things better for all Albertans, is not a fault, it’s our duty.”
Former Calgary MLA Donna Kennedy-Glans had been talking about running, and has now made it official. “We’ve learned I think, there is humility. I see it in people’s eyes, I see it in their commitment to rebuild.”
Both candidates say they want to rebuild the PC’s, not merge with the Wildrose Party. (eb)
