No provincial election has been called yet, but it will be soon and candidates around the Province are gearing up for it.

The UCP's R.J. Sigurdson in Highwood says he's good to go the second the writ is dropped.

"We are completely ready to go. I've got a full campaign team together. We keep gaining volunteers by the day. People are really focused and very willing to come out and help and I know that we're going to have a lot of support heading into the next election. We look forward to getting a United Conservative government into power for Alberta."

Sigurdson says he's already been busy door knocking and attending events leading up to the official start of the campaign.
