Conservatives line up to run for nomination in Harper’s Calgary Heritage riding
Three candidates have been approved so far, and more are anticipated to run for one of the safest Conservative seats in the country.
Former prime minister Stephen Harper resigned from Parliament on Aug. 26. The Conservatives will nominate their new candidate in the riding of Calgary Heritage on Oct. 22. Calgary lawyer Rick Billington, businessman Bob Benzen and Calgary city lawyer Paul Frank, not pictured, are seeking the Conservative Party nomination. More candidates could enter the race before the Sept. 21 deadline. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade and photo handouts
