EDMONTON – The last few days of the Alberta election campaign sees the leaders of the main political parties in Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer and Lethbridge.

Liberal Leader David Swann says he will announce what he calls the largest post-secondary investment in Alberta’s history at Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, then he heads to Calgary to attend a debate on the province’s water supply.

NDP Leader Rachel Notley meets with Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi, then heads to a dance cafe in Lethbridge.

Wildrose Leader Brian Jean is in Calgary to announce a plan about jobs and to meet with that city’s chamber of commerce, then heads to Red Deer for a rally.

Conservative Leader Jim Prentice is giving a speech at the annual PC’s leader’s dinner in Edmonton.

Prentice spent part of Wednesday answering questions about why the Conservatives are OK with a candidate convicted of soliciting a prostitute running again, but disqualified a candidate because an ex-girlfriend took out a restraining order against him.
