Election 2023: Campaign Roundup - Day 28



Welcome to Day 28 of our Alberta 2023 Campaign Roundup!

With the 2023 Alberta election now finally underway, I'll be bringing you daily updates on all the policy proclamations, platform promises, and political point-scoring from the campaign trail.


Campaign Roundup - Day 28:

  • Rachel Notley held a big, campaign wrap-up rally in Edmonton. She also made a final pitch to supporters to get out and vote NDP.

  • Danielle Smith said her team is working hard all weekend to earn every single vote. Smith stopped in at the office of Inder Grewal, UCP Candidate for Calgary-North East, to thank his volunteers for their work. Last night, she spoke to a full house from Calgary’s Chinese community.

  • Smith also “took a short break to run a slightly different race” and took part in the Calgary Marathon 5km run.

  • Stephen Harper filmed a video alongside Tanya Fir, UCP Candidate for Calgary-Peigan, encouraging Calgarians to get out and vote for the UCP. Harper also filmed a video with Tyler Shandro, Candidate for Calgary-Acadia.

  • Rachel Notley was interviewed by Mercedes Stephenson on The West Block. Notley made a final attempt to defend her record, her proposed 38% corporate increase, and her positions on oil and gas. She also said that her relationship with Justin Trudeau will continue on as it always has.

  • Voters are getting creative! One voter wrote and performed a song encouraging people to vote for the UCP. Kaycee Madu, UCP Candidate for Edmonton-South West, shared the song on Twitter.

  • Do you have a voting plan yet? Tomorrow, you must vote at your designated polling place, all of which will be open 9:00 am to 8:00 pm. You can find your designated polling place using your postal code here on the Elections Alberta website.
