The roughly 1,600 AGM attendees will be in Calgary until Sunday to vote on a variety of resolutions and elect new members to its board of directors. On Friday, they listened to a speech by federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer.

The AGM is the party’s first since it formed government in the province’s spring election.
