Todd Loewen, UCP candidate for Central Peace-Notley in the 2019 Alberta election.

Todd Loewen, UCP

Age: 52

Occupation: Small business owner

Reason for running: “I am running to represent the Peace Country once again because I’m proud of the work we do in the north. I believe our businesses, producers, and vitally important industries must be given the chance to prosper and grow. Across all sectors, from agriculture to forestry to oil and gas and all the other businesses that support these industries, the NDP’s policies have hurt our competitiveness and our ability to thrive.”

Priorities: Restoring Alberta’s prosperity by defending the vital industries of northwestern Alberta; standing up for Alberta’s economic interests against opponents, including getting a fair deal for Alberta within Confederation; and ensuring that efficient, quality public services be maintained in rural Alberta.

Marg McCuaig-Boyd, NDP candidate for Central Peace-Notley in the 2019 Alberta election.

Marg McCuaig-Boyd, NDP

Age: 66

Occupation: Teacher, college vice-president

Reason for running: I am running because we’ve made great progress but the work isn’t done. I want to: complete our government’s Made in Alberta plan to diversify our energy sector; get the Trans Mountain Pipeline built; protect overtime pay and fair minimum wage for workers; encourage more value-added development in sectors like agriculture; and ensure better schools, better health and seniors’ care, and rural infrastructure.

Priorities: Create jobs and contracting opportunities in our region through energy diversification projects like the Nauticol methanol plant; promote more economic development in value-added agriculture, tourism and other sectors to keep rural communities growing; and invest in more long-term care and seniors’ housing and expand $25/day child care already in Valleyview and Fairview to more communities.
