Election for Calgary Forest Lawn (Alberta) Vacant Seat to Be Held on Fixed October Election
On October 21, 2019, the fixed date for Canadian federal elections, the election for the now-vacant seat in the House of Commons representing Calgary Forest Lawn (Alberta) will be held.
Because this vacancy occurred less than nine months before October’s fixed-date general election, no by-election will be held.
On August 15, the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada, Stéphane Perrault, received official notice from the Speaker of the House of Commons that the seat for Calgary Forest Lawn (Alberta) became vacant.
The vacancy came following the death of MP Deepak Obhrai on August 2.
Obhrai had been the longest-serving Conservative member of Parliament.
