New mayors elected in historic victories in Calgary and Edmonton

Alberta's two major cities are set to make history in their mayoral races after Monday's municipal elections across the province.

Jyoti Gondek is to become Calgary's first female mayor and Edmonton voters appear to have elected the city's first person of colour as mayor.


Gondek served as a city councillor in Calgary for four years, where she championed public transit, police reform and city growth.


In Edmonton, former federal cabinet minister Amarjeet Sohi, a Sikh immigrant from India, will become the city's first mayor of South Asian origin.



Urban Alberta is changing, it is rural Alberta that's still in the past.
