A A

NDP candidate Bob Turner has defeated Health Minister Stephen Mandel in Edmonton-Whitemud.

The former mayor of Edmonton called tonight’s defeat “a challenge” for the PCs.

“What’s going to happen now? We’ll see.”

Mandel easily won the seat in a 2014 by-election, after being appointed Health Minister by former premier Jim Prentice.

“It was a real thrill and honour to be the Health Minister for the brief time that I was.”

The riding is in the city’s southwest and had been a PC riding since 1997.

Candidate:

  • Progressive Conservatives – Stephen Mandel (incumbent)
  • Liberal – Steven Townsend
  • NDP – Bob Turner
  • Green – Kathyrn Jackson
  • Independent – John Baloun
  • Wildrose – Chad Peters
