Jason Kenney Wins PC Leadership
March 18th, 2017 | Poletical News
Alberta's Progressive Conservative Party delegates voted on Saturday to confirm Jason Kenney's leadership at the party's convention in Calgary. Delegates were selected over the course of months at delegate selection meetings, where party members voted to select representatives for the leadership convention.
It was revealed that Kenney beat his opponents handily once the votes were tallied, confirming speculation that he was the front-runner in the race that seeks to merge Alberta's two conservative parties via membership referendums sometime in 2017 or 2018.
If Jason Kenney's bid to create a new party with the Wildrose is successful, he will be the last leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta.
