Federal Election 2015: Calgary Skyview riding results

A A

Summary: This new riding closely resembles the former riding of Calgary Northeast, which has been represented by Conservative MP Devinder Shory since 2008. He is running for re-election here. This may be the Liberal Party’s best shot at stealing a riding in Calgary. This area had the strongest Liberal support of any riding in 2011, and the party’s candidate is already well-known here. Darshan Kang represented Calgary-McCall provincially from 2008-2015, and did not re-offer provincially in order to campaign for a federal seat.
