Three provincial party leaders are making stops in Fort McMurray over the next couple of days.

Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel was the first to arrive – meeting residents at MacDonald Island Park Wednesday night along with party candidate Sid Fayad.

Mandel tells Mix News he believes they have a real shot to win this byelection.

“The time has come for change, the change really isn’t far left or far right – the change is the Alberta Party with [Fayad] as our candidate.”

He says they have real confidence in the direction the riding would take with Fayad as MLA.

“He presents everything about Fort McMurray, it’s a business community, people work incredibly hard, they’re passionate about the community and they’re passionate about the future of what can be here,” added Mandel.

He and Fayad will be meeting with residents in Fort McMurray over the next couple of days. Mandel will be back next week as they visit the rural communities.

Meanwhile, Premier Rachel Notley will be in Fort McMurray on Thursday.

She will be doing a meet and greet with NDP Candidate Jane Stroud.

Residents can head down to Stroud’s campaign office along McKinnon Street around 11:20 a.m.

Afterwards, Notley and Stroud will be going to Anzac, Janvier, and Conklin where they also plan to meet with residents.

Also, United Conservative Party Leader Jason Kenney will also be in Fort McMurray on Thursday.

He, along with UCP Candidate Laila Goodridge, will be hosting a dinner fundraiser at Shell Place.
