Rachel Notley runs for Alberta NDP leadership

--

CALGARY - Rachel Notley put her name forward Monday to be the next leader of the Alberta NDP, building on the foundation laid 30 years ago by her father.

Mason announced his resignation in April, saying if the party was to take the next step to gain broad support, a fresh face at the helm was needed.

Two years later, the party made its breakthrough, winning 16 seats in the 1986 general election to become the official opposition. …
