"All across this province our candidates and our volunteers are energized and ready to take on Jim Prentice and his out-of-touch PC government," said Notley. "This campaign is about showing real leadership on the priorities that matter to Albertans. That's what my team is ready to provide."

NDP candidates have been nominated in 85 ridings with two remaining contested nomination meetings scheduled in Calgary-Northern Hills and Red Deer-North for this week. Notley noted that she was particularly proud of the party's strong, diverse slate of candidates with over 50% being women.
