Edmonton Strathcona is a bellwether riding for the Conservative Party of Canada.
Our riding is the only one in Alberta not held by the CPC. The NDP have held on to it since 2008, the lone orange dot in a sea of 33 blue Conservative-held seats.
More importantly, the diversity and mix of Edmonton Strathcona’s residents, businesses, students and young professionals mirror many urban ridings in Canada that can move the needle for the Conservative Party of Canada.
If we can win Edmonton Strathcona, we can win other ridings like it in Vancouver, Toronto/GTA and even in Montreal. This would signify a strong breakthrough for our Party.

For the past two months, my campaign team has been working hard to build a base of Conservative support in the riding. Our goal is to win the CPC nomination contest, whenever it’s called, and then go on to win in the next federal election.
I’ve met and spoken to several hundred residents of Edmonton Strathcona over these past weeks, even with the constraints imposed upon us by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here are top three subjects, by a long shot, that keep coming back, which give you an indication of why we are in great shape to turn this riding Conservative blue:
So, we’re working hard. Out on the streets every day of every week, and will be from now until the end of the summer.
This is how elections are won. Doing the long, hard hours going door-to-door months before any election is called.
And that’s what we’re doing. And that’s why we’re going to win.

Before asking you for money for our Edmonton Strathcona campaign, we’re in the final stages of paying off expenses from my 2020 Conservative leadership campaign, which was cut short in early March by the COVID-19 pandemic.
