Rod Loyola nominated as NDP candidate in Edmonton-Ellerslie

 

EDMONTON – Edmonton-Ellerslie NDP members sent a clear signal of support, acclaiming Rod Loyola as their candidate in the next provincial election.

 

Prior to being elected in May 2015, Loyola was an academic program coordinator and student adviser for University of Alberta International and has lived in Edmonton for over 30 years.

 

“I am deeply committed to this community and ensuring Alberta’s NDP continues to make important improvements to health care and education in our province,” Loyola said.

 

Loyola said he chose to join Alberta’s NDP because Premier Notley and the NDP caucus were on the side of everyday Albertans, standing up to calls for deep cuts to vital public services and cleaning up waste and corruption.

 

“The conversations I have with my neighbours in Edmonton-Ellerslie has contributed to important changes in our province, such as a helmet exemption granted on religious grounds for Sikhs, anti-racism initiatives, and driver’s licences for refugees.”

 

Under Jason Kenney’s leadership the UCP has been taken over by extreme social conservatives and it is clear that they are not on the side of everyday Albertans.
