Devin Dreeshen Seeking UCP Nomination In Innisfail-Sylvan Lake

Devin Dreeshen - a fifth generation local farmer, volunteer and long-time conservative party activist - announced on Tuesday, February 13th that he is seeking the United Conservative Party nomination in the Innisfail-Sylvan Lake riding.

Devin Dreeshen is the latest candidate to announce he will be running for the United Conservative Party nomination in the Innisfail-Sylvan Lake constituency.
Dreeshen - who is the son of Red Deer-Mountain View federal Conservative MP Earl Dreeshen - says he is a long-time conservative party activist.
Devin lists humility as the greatest trait he has learned from his Dad's political career.

Dreeshen's background also included a stint from 2008 to 2015 as an advisor to Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz.
His candidacy for the UCP nomination is supported by both Ritz as well as former Innisfail-Sylvan Lake MLA and former Minister of Infrastructure & Transportation for Alberta Luke Ouellette.
Dreeshen says he will be travelling across the constituency of Innisfail-Sylvan Lake to reach out to voters, listen to their concerns and seek their support for his candidacy.


Dreeshen farms near Pine Lake. He presently owns a consulting business advising agricultural stakeholders on trade issues both provincially and nationally - especially in the context of NAFTA renegotiations.

Penhold town councillor & Innisfail Middle School Teacher Mike Walsh has also announced his intention to run for the United Conservative nomination in the wake of the recent resignation of first term MLA Don MacIntyre.
