Harvey Locke is the Liberal candidate for the Calgary Centre by-election (Confirmed: September 22, 2012).
From his Facebook Page:
I am deeply concerned about the future of our country so I seek the Liberal nomination in Calgary Centre.
I have been a Liberal for many years. I was a candidate in Calgary Foothills in 1989. I was president of the Alberta Liberal Party from 1995 to 1997 and chaired the provincial general election campaign. I helped Liberal Pete Helfrich to campaign in Banff – Cochrane this Spring.
This year I have been helping to rebuild the national Liberal Party by leading several consultations that have included elected and unsuccessful candidates from the 2011 election, Senators, and 600 general members at the National Convention.
From listening carefully, the values that define us Canada-wide emerged: Liberals are Fiscally Prudent, Socially Progressive and Environmentally Concerned. This is who we want Canada to be at home and abroad. I share these values and want to campaign for them.
Calgary Centre is a natural place for me to run. I was born in the Calgary General Hospital. I lived, went to school and rode my bike all around the riding as a kid. I have Arts and Law degrees from the University of Calgary. For 14 years I practised law downtown at MacKimmie Matthews. My family has been here since before the railway and we consider Calgary- Banff home. We will move to Calgary Centre if I am elected.
I have also worked on nature conservation all over the world. I speak English and French fluently (my wife Marie-Eve and I speak French at home) and Spanish fairly well.
I am used to big challenges and tough campaigns. I believe we can win this riding if we all pull together.
