Welcome to Edmonton Riverview
The Board of Directors of Edmonton Riverview would like to welcome Jason Kenney as our new leader.
On March 18, delegates from across the province cast their ballots to determine the next leader of the party. It was the first time in over 30 years that the leader of the party was chosen by delegates.
PC Alberta president Katherine O’Neill said that the vote was a reflection of the will of party members.
“We are a member-driven organization and the will of our members is supreme.” Said O’Neill. “After our defeat in 2015 our members told us to change and we took that message to heart. That is why we committed to ensuring that this race was conducted in a fair, open, honest and transparent process.”
“I’d also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr. Kenney on his election. I look forward to working with him to execute the mandate that has been given to us here today by our members. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank both Dr. Starke and Mr. Nelson for their commitment to our party and for putting their names forward.”
The election of Jason Kenney as leader of the party reflects a desire to seek unity with the Wildrose.
