"Doug reflects a kindness, enthusiasm and optimism that mirrors the momentum of the United Conservative Party. Led with strong and principled leadership during Doug's run for UCP leader, he had an opportunity to meet with and listen to thousands of Albertans and learn first hand about their goals and priorities for the future."

- Leela Aheer, UCP Deputy Leader and MLA

“[Doug] is the New Blue. He’s a strong fiscal conservative and moderate on the social issues. That makes Doug and his family a lot like many of the families who live in Calgary-Elbow’s neighbourhoods.”

- Jim Dinning, Former MLA

 “Throughout the UCP leadership campaign and many other volunteer and leadership roles in Conservative trenches, Doug has proven to be smart, dedicated and innovative. As a result he has earned the respect of many Albertans, including a large following of young Conservatives.”

- Brian Felesky, Order of Canada Recipient

"Doug has put in the hard work on Conservative causes for more than a decade. He is a strong fiscal conservative, dedicated to getting Alberta's fiscal house in order. He isn't interested in old arguments or divisive policies - he knows our economic future is too important"

- Bill Smith, Former President of the PC Party
