Bruce Stubbs was a farmer and political figure in Alberta, Canada.

Political career[edit]

He first came to public attention as a leading member of G.U.A.R.D. (Grassroots United Against Reform's Demise), a group opposed to the United Alternative process which formed the Canadian Alliance from the Reform Party of Canada. When the Canadian Alliance did eventually merge with the Progressive Conservatives, Stubbs declared he would not support the new Conservative Party.[1] Instead he moved to provincial politics, becoming leader of the Alberta Party in pursuit of Reform Party ideals, such as democratic reform.[2] He led the party through the provincial election of 2004, running in the riding of Strathcona, and the election of 2008, not contesting any riding.

Personal life[edit]

Stubbs is the son of former mayor of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Eileen Stubbs. Born in Nova Scotia, he moved to Alberta in 1974.[3] He is the father of Shannon Stubbs, the Conservative MP for Lakeland. Bruce passed away April 28, 2020.
