Almost 700K Vote In Alberta Advance Polls: UCP Leader Says Bodes Well For Him

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 16 Apr, 2019

    SHERWOOD PARK, Alta. — Alberta United Conservative Leader Jason Kenney says the strong turnout at advance polls means a boost for his party heading into Tuesday's election.

     

    Almost 700,000 people voted in recent days, dwarfing the 235,000 who cast ballots ahead of time in 2015.


    Kenney says that means voters want change, which bodes well for his United Conservatives as they seek to defeat Rachel Notley's NDP.


    Kenney made the comments at a rally with supporters in the Edmonton bedroom community of Sherwood Park on the last full day of campaigning.


    Speaking later, Kenney said he had not spoken with Calgary UCP candidate Peter Singh, whose business was raided last week by the RCMP.


    Mounties took a hard drive and other materials from Singh's auto-repair shop, but Kenney said police are not dealing with Singh, but with Singh's son.


    Singh has issued a statement saying he has done nothing wrong.


    "I've learned nothing more than what I've read in the media," Kenney said Monday.


    "As far as I know, he (Singh) hasn't been accused of anything."
