Jack Layton to attend nominations for Edmonton candidates

New Democrat Leader Jack Layton will be in Edmonton Tuesday evening to attend the nominations for the New Democrat candidates in Edmonton East and Edmonton Centre.

“We made a breakthrough in Edmonton in the last election, and we’re intent to keep the momentum going,” said Layton. “I am very excited to be attending this nomination meeting to meet the people that will join Linda Duncan in our Alberta caucus.”

New Democrats are focussing on Edmonton during the summer break from Parliament. The New Democrat Caucus Retreat will take place in the city shortly after the start of the Parliamentary session in September.

I learned on Dave Cournoyer popular blog – daveberta – that Lewis Cardinal, educator and community activist, is running uncontested in Edmonton Centre, a riding held by Conservative Laurie Hawn. And Ray Martin, former Alberta NDP leader, is running uncontested in Edmonton East, a riding held by Conservative Peter Goldring.
