Alberta Tory MPs lining up behind Kenney in provincial leadership race

Jason Kenney served as the MP for Calgary Midnapore and Calgary Southeast for 19 years before leaving Parliament last year to pursue the leadership of Alberta's Progressive Conservative Party, the beginning of a bid to unite the province's two conservative parties. Mr. Kenney's next test is to try and win the Oct. 28 election of the first leader of the new United Conservative Party. He's set to compete against former federal caucus-mate and provincial Wildrose leader Brian Jean. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade

They may not see eye to eye on the $7.4-billion Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion (Trudeau approved it, Horgan campaigned against it), but when it comes to wardrobe choices, these two are simpatico. They both wore summer blue suits, polka-dotted ties, striped socks, and brown shoes. The Hill Times photograph by Sam Garcia
