The polling station was pathetic...What was wrong with having it in a larger place like a school gymnasium?...The chaos and mayhem surrounding polling stations like this would probably put me off voting like many of my neighbours...and that's even more pathetic!

Did David Xiao break any rules by putting those larger campaign signs so close to the polling station?

NDP candidate Bridget Stirling's tires were stabbed this past week. As her election signs were in her car, it is likely this is politically motivated, and that she was targeted as a female candidate.

Edmonton-Mill Creek Liberal candidate Aman Gill also was attacked, because she was a woman, and a person of Colour. Racist and sexually explicit drawings defaced her campaign sign.

As a woman, it concerns me that female candidates are targeted as such.

I believe the last two posters were thinking of Edmonton - Manning.

This forum is for Edmonton - McClung (the south-west end of Edmonton), and the incumbent is Liberal member Mo Elsalhy, who is definitely not running as an independent. He is once again running for Kevin Taft's Liberals.

Good point Dave. Hypothetically, if the Libs and WZ gain some ground, this is a funny potenial outcome:

CON 37
ALP 37
NDP 4
WA 4

If you do the math, an Indie (from Meadowlark) would be the tie-breaker on votes. Would the Lt. Gov. ask the CONS or LIBS to form government? Backs was kicked out of the ALP and refused to join the CON. Suspect situation, but would be interesting if it did happen.

This looks to be one of the more interesting race to watch. With the sitting MLA now running as an independent.
