Message from the President

It is with deep regret that I inform you that due to the serious situation in Calgary we have made the decision to postpone the Conservative Party’s National Convention scheduled for this coming week.

We have been in discussions with various authorities regarding the situation and believe holding the national convention at this time would not be in the best interests of the people of Calgary.

At this time the focus needs to be on the safety of Calgarians, and a convention our size with the security it entails could mean taking first responders away from the work they are doing. As well, the focus will soon shift to the rebuilding that needs to follow and with Stampede starting soon, a major economic driver for the region, we do not want our convention to interfere in the work that needs to be done to ensure that important event happens.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people of Alberta during this very difficult time.

We really wish we could have gone ahead with the convention as planned, but rest assured we are committed to the people of Calgary and will set out immediately to reschedule our convention. We will be in touch with a new date as soon as it is confirmed.


John Walsh
President, Conservative Party of Canada
Chair, National Convention Committee
