The Fort Whyte riding has produced two Conservative leaders, with Pallister following former PC leader Hugh McFayden back in 2012.
Candidates can now officially begin campaigning in the area with live-streamed speeches starting on Thursday, Feb. 10 and in-person votes to be cast the following two days.
The winner will be announced Feb. 12 and Premier Heather Stefanson says she’s confident the “residents of Fort Whyte will have a strong voice in our Caucus.”
