Three Progressive Conservatives will be added to the list of Senate nominees that Alberta sends to Ottawa.
The would-be Tory Senators took the most votes as their party swept back into office in Monday’s landslide win.
Doug Black, a Calgary lawyer and the chairman of the University of Calgary’s board of governors, won one of the three slots.
Scott Tannas, who owns a financial services firm based in High River, was also successful.
And Mike Shaikh — chairman of the Calgary Police Commission — narrowly defeated Wildrose candidate Raymond Germain for the third Senator-in-waiting position.
