Meet The Candidate

Kerry Diotte has dedicated more than three decades of his life to public service, first as an award-winning journalist, then as an Edmonton City councillor and now as Member of Parliament for Edmonton Griesbach. 

Elected October 19, 2015, Kerry is the Official Opposition’s Deputy Shadow Minister of Public Services and Procurement. 

Born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and educated at Ottawa’s Carleton University, Kerry enjoyed a long and successful career as a journalist, working in radio, TV, magazines and newspapers. 

For several years, Kerry was a popular, award-winning columnist at the Edmonton Sun.

That career evolved into his own election to Edmonton city council in 2010, where he was renowned for fighting against wasteful spending and high taxation. 

Kerry has taught journalism, authored a book about Edmonton’s history and was a national director of the Canadian Association of Journalists. 

Today, he’s proud to serve the diverse communities of Edmonton Griesbach and provide them with a strong voice in Ottawa.
