Wildrose Sets Date for New Leader article

So far three people have stepped up to take over for former Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith as the head of the party.

The Wildrose will pick their new leader March 28th, much sooner than the original plan which was for June.

Livingstone-MacLeod MLA Pat Stier says the party is far from dead though.

"We've received more donations and more offers of volunteerism than we've seen in a couple of years. It's been absolutely thrilling to see that."

Current MLA Drew Barnes, former MP Brian Jean and former Strathcona-County Mayor Linda Osinchuk have thrown their hats into the ring.

Member's can begin to vote by phone on March 16th with the winner being announced in Calgary on March 28th.

If you plan to vote, you'll have to join the party, but you must do so by March 15th at the latest to be eligible to vote.
