The writ has been dropped.

Calgary Glenmore goes to the polls Sept 14. with that in mind I ask the following on my blog.


Should Diane Colley-Urquhart take a leave of absence "without" pay from her Aldermanic position?

Byelection hopeful won't take council leave

Last Updated: Thursday, September 3, 2009 | 10:51 AM MT

A candidate in a provincial byelection has decided to keep doing her city council duties while she runs for a seat in the legislature.

Diane Colley-Urquhart resigned as a commissioner with the Alberta Human Rights Commission when she was acclaimed as the Alberta Progressive Conservative candidate in Calgary-Glenmore in June.

Although she didn't want to give up her Ward 13 seat on council, she did say she would take a leave of absence once the byelection in Calgary-Glenmore was called.

Colley-Urquhart has since changed her mind and she isn't commenting on her decision.

Wow, that's a pretty bold flip-flop. She'd been saying all along that she would be taking a leave of absence from council, and remitting her salary for the writ period to the City. If she was a City roads worker or garbage collector, she would be required to take an unpaid leave of absence for the duration of the campaign. See page 12 of this document: LINK (PDF)
