Q: When is the nomination contest?
A: The nomination race is currently open. Once the application period closes - and that date is determined by the Party - the vote date will be set if it is necessary. We will keep our subscribers informed of updates by email.
Q: What if there is a snap election?
A: Minority governments can fall at any moment so it is important to remain vigilant. Rick's team is ready and willing to contest a general election any day. Subscribing to Rick's mailing list can ensure you receive the latest updates.
Q: I get a lot of emails already. How many will you send?
A: You will normally receive no more than one email per week. If there is an important announcement, like the election date announcement, you may get another email in the same week.
Q: I subscribed but I don't see any emails from Rick. Did you get my registration?
A: The mostly likely explanation is the email was falsely flagged as spam. Please check your spam or junk folder in your email program.
Q: I don't live in Edmonton Strathcona or even in Alberta. Can I still support Rick?
A: Absolutely! Prior to the official nomination race starting, Rick is finishing off paying expenses from his 2020 CPC leadership campaign earlier this year. A donation to that campaign can be completed by clicking the DONATE button on this website. Individuals are allowed to donate a maximum of $1,625 to any one or more of the qualified leadership candidates, of which Rick was one, and receive a tax receipt for that donation. Rick’s profile as a leadership candidate and his work for the Party across Canada are reasons why he has a strong base of support in Edmonton Strathcona.
