RELEASE: Fildebrandt Nominated as FCP Candidate for Chestermere-Strathmore 

EDMONTON, AB: Today Freedom Conservative Party (FCP) Leader Derek Fildebrandt was nominated as the FCP candidate for the riding of Chestermere-Strathmore.

"The Party wishes to congratulate Derek on his nomination for Chestermere-Strathmore. In the FCP we require even the Leader to hold an open nomination. This is part of our commitment to respecting grassroots democracy.” – FCP Interim Board of Governors 

No member is above the Constitution. When we founded the FCP I insisted that all candidates, even myself, must go through open nominations. I am proud to say that the FCP is the only party to hold an open nomination in Chestermere-Strathmore.” – FCP Leader, Derek Fildebrandt

The FCP is the only party to hold an open nomination for Chestermere-Strathmore. In December 2017, Jason Kenney informed Derek Fildebrandt that he would be allowed to run in any other riding other than Chestermere-Strathmore. In the conversation Kenney explained his rationale:

How would it look if a white, blonde, bearded-redneck defeated one of our only woman and minority candidates in a nomination?” – Jason Kenney

Race and sex should not be a factor in nominations. The FCP is proud to be the only party hosting open and free nominations.” – FCP Leader, Derek Fildebrandt
