LDS Politician appointed to the Alberta cabinet

EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA -- In the election held in Alberta on the 12th of March 2001, two members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were elected MLAs (Members of the Legislative Assembly). Ian McClelland won as a member of the ruling Progressive Conservatives and Greg Melchin was re-elected from Calgary.

McClelland, a former federal Member of Parliament, ran for the ruling Progressive Conservatives, and beat his Liberal and New Democrat opponents handily to win the Edmonton riding of Edmonton-Rutherford (see )

Greg Melchin was re-elected in Calgary Nose Hill and, it was announced this afternoon, has been appointed to the provincial cabinet as Minister of Revenue (see: ). Br. Melchin is the first LDS cabinet minister since Hon. Jack Ady, MLA for Cardston, resigned from politics several years ago.
