EDMONTON — Alberta residents in two constituencies will be heading to the polls next month.
Premier Rachel Notley has called byelections for Innisfail-Sylvan Lake and Fort McMurray-Conklin for July 12.
The constituencies became vacant earlier this year following resignations by two members of the United Conservative Party.
Don MacIntyre quit in Innisfail-Sylvan Lake in early February after he was charged with sexual assault and sexual interference.
