In Ellected 11, host Sarah Elder-Chamanara and Conservative political strategist and consultant Melissa Caouette share their thoughts the morning after Canada's 44th federal election. They run down why the NDP, Greens, Conservatives, and Liberals ended up where they did – almost exactly where things left off when the election was called. From there, it’s back to Alberta, where Melissa and Sarah discuss implications for the governing UCP.
Melissa Caouette is a western Canadian conservative political consultant, strategist, and writer. Melissa was born and raised in Edmonton, but now splits her time between British Columbia and Alberta. Melissa first got involved in politics as an undergraduate political science student at the University of Alberta and has been involved in a number of municipal, provincial and federal political campaigns across western Canada and has worked at the Alberta Legislature in the Office of the Premier. Melissa has extensive private sector experience, having worked as a policy specialist at a global law firm and as the western government relations lead for two prominent Canadian public affairs agencies serving as a senior advisor to small, medium, and large organizations in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors.
