Global News has projected Kathleen Ganley to take the riding of Calgary-Mountain View for the NDP.
Below is a full list of the candidates for the riding of Calgary-Mountain View, an inner-city riding bordering on the north shore of the Bow River.
Liberal Leader David Khan is looking to take the Calgary-Mountain View seat, which had previously been held by colleague Dr. David Swann for four terms. Also vying for the seat is Justice Minister Kathleen Ganley, who currently holds the legislature seat for Calgary-Buffalo.
The UCP’s original candidate in Calgary-Mountain View was Caylan Ford. However, she resigned on March 18 after online comments she made about race and white supremacist terrorists came to light.
NDP: Kathleen Ganley
United Conservative Party: Jeremy Wong
Alberta Party: Angela Kokott
Liberal Party: David Khan
Green Party: Thana Boonlert
Alberta Independence Party: Monica Friesz
Swann was the only Liberal to win a seat in the 2015 election, leading to speculation on whether the NDP would grant the Liberals official party status.
Swann was first elected in 2004. Before that, voters had elected Social Credit, Progressive Conservative, NDP and Liberal LMAs.
