I am very proud to be a supporter of our local conservative Dave Hancock. Clearly our riding supports his powerful political position and I am very pleased with the result. Let it be noted (although I am not sure about this particular election) that Edmonton Whitemud usually has one of the higher voter turnouts in Alberta. I believe this election was one where the majority spoke loudly through their votes.

This could be an interesting riding to watch. Hancock's team seemed a bit desperate pulling out all the stops - Dropping doorknob hangers with "Sorry I missed you Dave" when Hancock was no where in sight and we were home (I even checked our doorbell and it works - I would have loved to talk to him). Also we saw someone came to place signs on lawns on a number of homes in our neighbourhood. When I questioned one neighbour about his Hancock sign, he hadn't requested it.

You gotta love that our current MLA has brought on the addition of the Triage Tent at the U of A. How can Hancock say that he has protected ... done anything for healthcare... with a straight face.

I've seen more of Nancy over the last few months than I've seen of Dave over the past few years. I've seen her twice at the doors, plus her team left a leaflet at my place. She's definitely working for the vote, and will be getting mine.

Brad, I got the same call... not impressed... but I haven't seen Nancy out yet - I've seen Dave out 3 times in the last 5 days.

So, I gotta call from Dave Hancock a week ago and it made me decide who I'm going to vote for. The call came from a Calgary professional telemarketing number rather than a local one. I'm voting Nancy cause of it.

This will be the first time in 30+ years of being eligible to vote that I will not be going to the polls! The conservative party,and Dave Hancock in particular, have moved too far to the left! There isn't a clear division between parties any more! The only difference I can see is that the liberals would just skyrocket us into debt,at lightning speed! Otherwise,their ideologies are identical,in form and" lack" of substance.

I've seen signs from the Liberals and the PCs, but what about the NDP? Actually... are there any parties actually doing anything on the ground in this riding?

I havent seen many Hancock signs on actual houses yet, but I have seen a few of Nancy's.
