Why the anti-immigration PPC is gaining ground in Alberta - 2019-10-17
Bradley Johner describes himself as an oddball in Alberta terms — because he hasn't always voted Conservative.
The 26-year-old was raised in Grimshaw, a small northern Alberta town where 70 per cent of residents voted Tory in the last federal election.
He now lives in Didsbury, where he works in one of Alberta's burgeoning non-oil-and-gas industries: cannabis. Didsbury is slightly less blue than Grimshaw, but only by a small margin (64 per cent voted Conservative in 2015). Johner has voted Conservative in the past, but in 2015 he switched party allegiances.
