Alberta Senate Election Act

This Act's purpose is to create the framework for Alberta to hold elections for Senate. It's important to note that this does not actually mean that Alberta's Senators will actually be elected; rather, the elections that will be held will return a list of nominees that we would submit to the federal government. However, the federal government gets to appoint members of the Senate, and they're under no constitutional obligation to listen to the results of these
elections.
