Voters in Brooks-Medicine Hat have elected United Conservative Party leader Danielle Smith to represent them as their MLA.

With one remaining poll left to report late on Tuesday night, the new premier was leading with 55.5 % of the vote, followed by NDP candidate Gwendoline Dirk with 24.2% of the vote.

Alberta Party leader and candidate Barry Morishita came third with 18%. Independence Party of Alberta candidate Bob Blayone received  1.9% of the vote, and Wildrose Independence Party candidate Jeevan Mangat garnerd 0.5%.

The byelection saw traditionally low voter turnout. Just over 10,400 of 34,060 eligible voters cast a ballot. Of those, 4,231 cast a ballot in advanced or special polls.

In comparison, 13,606 voters cast a ballot in the 2019 election won by former United Conservative Party (UCP) MLA Michaela Frey.

In a speech after the results were announced, Smith said her government will take “unprecedented” action over the next few months to help Albertan families amid the cost of living crisis.

That includes assistance with electricity bills, targeted help for seniors, another fuel tax holiday and“genuine health care reform.”

Smith said the rest of Alberta will make their choice in the spring 2023 election against Rachel Notley’s NDP which “takes their orders from Jagmeet Singh and Justin Trudeau.” The choice is between the NDP and her “energized” UCP government which will create jobs and lower the cost of living, she said.

“That is the choice,” Smith said.  “That is the only choice.”

The byelection results must be ratified, meaning the earliest Smith could be in the legislature is Nov. 29. Smith last sat in the legislature after crossing the floor to join former Premier Jim Prentice’s Progressive Conservatives in 2014. She lost the PC nomination the following year.

At the UCP annual general meeting on Oct. 22, Smith told party members that work has begun on her proposed Alberta Sovereignty Act, legislation to bar federal bills deemed harmful to Alberta’s interests. The new premier said she’s asked for the bill to be ready when she takes her seat.

Speaking to Albertans on Tuesday night, Smith said Sovereignty Act legislation will be constitutional. Her critics have warned that it would create a constitutional crisis and chase away investment.

“The paternalistic approach of the Trudeau government has been corrosive to national unity. Our country, sadly, has never been more divided,” Smith said.

“The Sovereignty Act works to restore the ultimate purpose of Confederation and it will renew Alberta’s place as an equal partner in Confederation, not a child of the federal government.”



Thanks to your donations, we can move to the next step.  We have filed to incorporate Awake Canada as a registered non profit charitable organization.  To be transparent, I have posted the receipts below.

For those that do not know why we did this, let me explain.   We are going to start using corporate clout to tackle some of the companies that are violating our rights.  Our first target is Facebook Canada for the unlawful censorship, banning, and shadow banning of Canadian Citizens.  Facebook is a platform, not a publisher.  They can write all the mumbo jumbo they want into their terms and conditions, but it does not excuse them from medical liability if people are harmed by them censoring doctors, and lawyers about what is really going on with Covid.

As a registered member of Awake Canada, if we push to class action, you will be automatically entered into this class action and dismissed if you have not ever had a facebook account.   My lawyer will inform me on this as we move to this process.  We are going to start by placing an injunction on my personal account, removing all bans, and shadow bans, and the Awake Canada facebook page.  Any action they take against this page or the content, will be challenged legally.  Be sure you are a member of that page if you are not.   You can join our Facebook Here.

We are temporarily going to pause donations, until the registration process is complete and a new bank account for Awake Canada is setup.  Separating my personal affairs from this corporation is KEY to being successful in our campaigns.

Stay tuned for further updates!
