The announcement of Derek Sloan’s candidacy by the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) candidate Nadine Wellwood quickly met with a negative reaction.
“Derek Sloan, go home. Respect, Alberta doesn’t need Ottawa anymore,” she says in a YouTube video.
“Obviously Sloan lacks the confidence and courage to run in his own riding where he would face a strong Liberal opponent,” Wellwood said in a written statement. “So he decided to come to Alberta to steal one of Alberta’s seats and denied an Albertan a vote in the House of Commons.”
She called him another selfish, selfish Ottawa transplant that Albertans only sees as an opportunity to advance his own political career.
“If Derek Sloan wanted to help Alberta, he would have thrown his support behind an Alberta candidate and shown real leadership. Instead, he chose to be selfish while showing his own weakness as a leader.”
PPC candidate Wellwood is making her second run for the Banff-Airdrie federal seat.
