I am very thankful to the almost 5000 people that voted for our 'maverick' campaign. The overall results speak to the power of the conservative brand in Calgary. As a conservative member I am more than happy about the party's performance and look forward to Stephen Harper continued good governance. I believe that there were issues with the nomination and that's why I stood in contention. The people have spoken and I wish Mr Shory the best of luck in representing this great riding of Calgary northeast.
