EDMONTON, AB (March 21, 2019): United Conservative Leader Jason Kenney has issued a statement following the nomination of Leila Houle as the Party’s candidate in Edmonton-Highlands-Norwood for the 2019 provincial election:
“I would like to congratulate Leila Houle on her nomination win tonight in Edmonton-Highlands-Norwood.
“Leila brings with her a deep commitment to advocating on behalf of Indigenous Peoples, having spent her career working to advance these important issues. As the first woman ever nominated to be President of the Assembly of First Nations in Alberta, Leila has broken down barriers and paved the way for others. This experience will serve us well as we work to provide Albertans with a common-sense alternative to the NDP. I am pleased to welcome Leila to the United Conservative team.
“I would also like to thank Atul Ranade and his team for their participation in the democratic process and dedication to our movement.”
