Hon. Thomas Lukaszuk, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative Candidate, Edmonton-Castledowns
Somebody reminded me that you had a Bachelor of Education Degree from the University Of Alberta. I had forgotten that you were a teacher. So a Min. of Education simultaneously an educator out of the Edmonton Catholic School District, fascinating. Plus, former Education Min. Dave Hancock's lovely bride Janet Hancock is the school principal IV Lillian Osborne High School. So duplicate educational Hancock's competinbg: exciting!
In Edmonton-Calder we have NDP Candidate David Eggen, a former Calder MLA & now a teacher. Then we have Bev Esslinger, the Progressive Conservative Candidate & a former Edmonton Public School Board Trustee. Two very strong proponents of education.
Battle River-Wainwright Progressive Conservative Candidate & PC Leadership MMXI Candidate, Doug Griffiths, the current Min. of Muni. Affairs is also a teacher. The Alberta Liberals have the retiring MLA IV Edm.-Riverview, Dr. Kevin Taft, a Professor of Business graduate with a Ph. D. from a school in England. Retiring Alberta Liberal Calgary-Varsity MLA Harry Chase was a teacher IV XXXIV years before moving inII politics in MMIV.
