Edmonton MLA Sarah Hoffman to announce Alberta NDP leadership run

By Kelsey Patterson

A former deputy premier in Alberta will vie for the leadership of the official Opposition.

Sarah Hoffman, MLA for Edmonton-Glenora since 2015, will launch her campaign to replace Rachel Notley as head of the Alberta NDP Sunday morning.

Hoffman, who’s also a former minister of health, will make the announcement at the Woodcroft Community League in Edmonton.

She is the third politician to declare her intention to enter the race, joining former Alberta justice minister Kathleen Ganley and Edmonton MLA Rakhi Pancholi.

On Friday, MLA David Shepherd announced he wouldn’t be throwing his name in the ring because of health issues.

Notley revealed last month she was stepping down after almost a decade at the helm of Alberta’s NDP.
