Danielle Smith - Leader of the Official Opposition
April 15, 2012 , Personal
The writ was dropped March 26th – with an April 23rd election date called. From there it was 28 days of campaigning for the party leaders and their candidates. Danielle Smith, Leader of the Wildrose Party packed up her bus, staff and got her war room rolling.
I was honoured to be asked to be the Tour Photographer for Danielle. I spent two weekends with her and the amazing staff on the bus traveling around Southern Alberta. There were several staff, media and two dogs on board at all times. It was an incredible experience to see first-hand what it’s like to run for premier.
I’m proud to say that although the Wildrose didn’t win the election, they did become the opposition party. They have some incredible new MLAs that are going to represent Albertans well. Danielle is now my new MLA for Highwood and I’m excited to have her represent us in Edmonton.

I hope you enjoy this little taste of what I saw.
