InfoBrian Mason was active in Alberta politics early on, when he served as the Executive Director of the Alberta Federation of Students from 1977-1979 following his Political Science studies at the University of Alberta.

For the next several years, Mason was employed by Edmonton Transit Services as a bus driver, making headlines in 1989, when he appealed the provincial law that required municipal employees to resign their positions to run as municipal candidates.

Mason was elected Councillor for Ward 3 in October 1989. He remained at city council for 11 years, winning 3 additional civic elections and gaining a reputation as a tough and effective voice for his constituents.

Since becoming MLA for Edmonton Highlands, Mason has developed a reputation as a fierce critic of the Conservative government, in particular in the field of energy policy and consumer issues. Almost single-handedly, Mason has been responsible for making deregulation a hot political issue in Alberta.

Whether the issue is deregulation, high auto insurance rates, school cuts or fair treatment for seniors, Brian's spirited performance in the legislature has made him a champion of Alberta families.

On July 13, 2004 Brian became the Leader of the New Democrat Opposition.
