In the Alberta election, NDP Leader Rachel Notely, left, and UCP Leader Danielle Smith engaged in a closely fought battle, guaranteeing a woman premier. But all-women contests in provincial elections are the exception, not the norm, write Susan Franceschet and Jennifer M. Piscopo. The Hill Times photographs by Andrew Meade

Opinion | BY SUSAN FRANCESCHET | July 21, 2022
Former Alberta NDP premier Rachel Notley, left, will be running in the next provincial election. The UCP leadership candidates are Danielle Smith, Leela Aheer, Rebecca Schulz, and Rajan Sawney. Smith is the front-runner, Aheer was minister of culture, multiculturalism and status of women before being removed last summer for her criticism of Kenney. Schulz and Sawney both quit cabinet to enter the leadership race. Photographs courtesy of Flickr and Wikimedia Commons
