CALGARY - The Liberal candidate in today's Calgary Centre byelection, Harvey Locke, says he doesn't think vote splitting on the left will clear the way for a Conservative win.

Harvey Locke says he's hopeful progressive voters will rally around him as the candidate who can beat Conservative candidate Joan Crockatt in the tight race.

Locke says polls show him neck-and-neck with Crockatt — not the Green Party's Chris Turner or the NDP's Dan Meades.

A Liberal hasn't won a seat in Calgary Centre in 40 years.

Locke shrugged off concerns that anti-Alberta comments from Liberal MPs David McGuinty and Justin Trudeau could harm his campaign.

Locke says Calgarians can either focus on wounds from the past or look toward the future.
