Well Craig Chandler sold enough memberships to his extreme right-whingnut pals to win the Calgary Egmont Conservative MLA nomination. You may remember Craig " Alberta; Love it or Leave It" Chandler from my previous posts. If not check them out.
There is a silver lining to his victory though. It opens Calgary Egmont to a possible Liberal victory. As Calgary Grit writes;
As a constituent in Calgary Egmont, I'm a little torn about this one. Having Craig Chandler as my MLA is a scary thought but, at the same time, it puts a riding that was never going to elect a Liberal MLA before into play. The Alberta Liberals have nominated former Catholic school board trustee Cathie Williams in the riding - quite the catch. Cathie is an accomplished woman who is smart, politically astute, passionate about policy, and not Craig Chandler. These four qualities of hers should make Calgary Egmont a riding to watch during the upcoming provincial election.Or perhaps an NDP sneak up the middle.
Or maybe not.
