Get to Know Doug

Doug is not a career politician. He’s a father, husband and restructuring lawyer with the largest law firm in the world, with a love for his province and unrelenting optimism for what it can be.

He’s a third generation Albertan who has experienced our province's best, as well has faced the challenging times.

Over the last three years, Doug has seen the economic devastation, job losses and flight of capital in Alberta first hand. He’s seen friends and neighbours lose their jobs and struggle to overcome mounting debt. And as he meets Calgarians from all walks of life, he hears that the tough times aren’t over.

Doug believes Alberta can, and should, be the most exciting place to live, work and grow in Canada. But for that to be realized, Albertans need new jobs, investors need new reasons to be confident in our province and we need to ensure all Albertans have the opportunity to find success.

The United Conservative Party is building a big-tent, free enterprise coalition, reflecting the diversity of Alberta today and the promise of what Alberta can be tomorrow.

In lockstep with leader Jason Kenney, Doug’s priority will be removing the barriers that are stifling our recovery from the economic downturn. From mounting taxes to pipeline gridlock, the UCP will work to bring back transparency and accountability to the government policy that impacts daily life.

With humility and hard work, Doug will be an effective voice for Calgary-Elbow.
