Candidate for Calgary-Currie
As a candidate for Calgary-Currie, Norm Kelly believes that accountable, thoughtful and ethical decision making is within reach with the right voices in Government. He believes that all Albertans need to be reflected in our policies and legislation and will
ensure government is held responsible and accountable.
Norms driving pillars of his upcoming campaign are:
Norm Kelly has called Alberta home since his family moved here from Scotland in 1974. He was educated in the public school system in Alberta and began his study of law in 1985 at the University of Alberta with an interest in criminal law. He graduated in 1989 with an undergraduate degree in Criminology and then straight into the formal study of law andgraduated in 1992 with his LLB.
For nearly two decades, Norm worked as a Crown Prosecutor within our judicial system and developed his expertise and knowledge while working in Edmonton, Red Deer and Calgary. After a successful career as a Crown attorney Norm stepped out of the government role and began his private practise to apply this knowledge and expertise by advocating for those that needed protection and guidance the most.
Norm was privileged to serve on the board for Volunteer Calgary and is a graduate of the Leadership Calgary program through Volunteer Calgary. As an active soccer player and coach he has brought his skills and passion for sports to several community teams. He is a committed volunteer to early literacy programs and Calgary’s shelter programs such as Inn from the Cold. Due to
his varied experience and successes Norm has been a guest speaker at various post-secondary institutions on criminal justice issues such as elder abuse and domestic violence as well he has been a mock court judge for University of Calgary law students.
Norm believes that all Albertans must have access to a quality public education. As a product of Alberta’s public system he recognizes the importance of this investment in our provinces future.
Norm has always been passionate about societyʼs rules: who makes them and how, who enforces them and what we as a group do with those who break those rules. How those in power wield their authority is vitally important to the operation of our democracy; particularly to those individuals who are adversely affected by government decisions. This drive for understanding has prepared Norm for a role as a leader within government who will advocate for a credible, accountable justice system that takes its frailties into account and treats everyone within the system fairly and appropriately.
Norm has discovered that public advocacy; being a voice for victims and those who feel powerless is what he believes is his mission and driving passion. After years of working within the system on both sides of the issues he has developed the knowledge to turn that passion into action for Albertans.
