The Alberta Liberal candidates in the ridings of Calgary-West and Calgary-Foothills are David Khan and Robert Prcic.
“I am proud to have David Khan and Robert Prcic running under the Alberta Liberal banner in Calgary-West and Calgary-Foothills,” says Alberta Liberal Leader Raj Sherman. “These gentlemen will both speak with knowledge and passion on issues of vital importance to Albertans.”
David Khan practices Aboriginal Law across Western Canada. He has represented or assisted in the representation of clients at all levels of court in numerous Canadian jurisdictions, including the Supreme Court of Canada.
“I have always been passionate about advancing progressive social issues, and it’s shocking how this tired government neglects social issues and vital public services” says Khan. “We need a new vision for Alberta, one that champions public health care, seniors’ care, and education. It is time for a strong economy and a strong society, which is what I’ll be championing in Calgary-West.”
Raised on a farm just outside of Calgary, Robert Prcic is a graduate of the University of Calgary, where he played a starring role on the basketball team. He owns GTR Auto and coaches basketball, in addition to other volunteer activities. Robert was also the Alberta Liberal candidate in Calgary-Northwest during the 2012 general election.
“My experiences as a student, an athlete, and a small business owner all tell me that just saying what you’ll do is not enough,” says Prcic. “You actually need to have a plan and put in the hard work necessary to make it happen. The PCs don’t get this. They talk a good game, but they don’t follow through, and the result is severe damage to our vital public services.
“These by-elections are the perfect opportunity to send the PCs a message that we do not approve of their friends-first approach to running Alberta.”
The Alberta Liberals are campaigning on the message that it is time for Alberta to have both a strong economy AND a strong society. This means policy and performance in vital areas such as health care, seniors’ care, and post-secondary education must be greatly improved.
