CALGARY - A former MLA and recent Calgary mayoralty candidate has died.
Jon Lord, who was 57, had a heart attack at his home in Calgary on Tuesday night.
Lord was a Progressive Conservative member of the Alberta legislature from 2001 to 2004.
He served two terms as a Calgary alderman between 1995 and 2001, and ran for mayor in 2010 and in 2013.
Lord finished second to incumbent Mayor Naheed Nenshi last October with 21 per cent of the vote.
