Decision – Alberta Liberal Leadership Nolan Crouse

It is with varied emotions that I share that with nominations closing March 31 at 5:00 pm with respect to the Alberta Liberal Leadership contest, I have decided that I will not be letting my name remain standing for the ALP Leader role and that effective immediately all activities in this regard will cease.

As such, I am requesting of Elections Alberta and the Alberta Liberal Leadership Party to have my name removed as a Candidate.

While many may wonder the reason(s) for this decision, the reasons will be kept private and I will provide “no comment” as to these varied questions and associated speculation.

I wish to thank the hundreds who have assisted, volunteered and donated time; the support has been overwhelming and appreciated.

To the Party and prospective Candidates, I wish everyone the very best as Albertans are amidst unprecedented and uncertain political times.

Yours sincerely,

Nolan Crouse
