Ex-Wildroser, now PC candidate Bruce McAllister shrugs off internal party tensions in the riding of Chestermere-Rocky View where the premier held a rally Friday.
Some long time PC members remain unhappy McAllister was handed the party's nomination while a would-be competitor was disqualified for reasons that remain murky.
McAllister says the issue rarely comes up during his campaigning.
"I can tell you this, I have knocked on thousands of doors and can count on one hand the people that raised that issue. You know what people talk about? Where are we going with the future of Alberta. What are we going to do to address the fiscal situation we're dealing with. What is the best way out. I assure you, that is what people want to talk about. That's what I'm concerned with. I don't lose sleep honestly over those that don't see it your way or those that would throw stones."
McAllister is facing a tough battle against the Wildrose candidate and Jamie Lall, the man who was disqualified for running as a Progressive Conservative.
