Linda Johnson (born c. 1959) is a Canadian politician who was an elected member to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, representing the electoral district of Calgary-Glenmore, from 2012 to 2015.[2][3]

Her interest in politics began during her high school days when she became active with the Progressive Conservative party. Her first involvement was as a volunteer for former MLA Dennis Anderson. She worked in Ottawa as an assistant to Harvie Andre, MP for Calgary-Centre. She returned to Calgary becoming constituency assistant for Jim Hawkes, MP for Calgary-West.[citation needed]

Johnson ran for the Calgary Ward 11 City Councilor seat in October 2017 but lost to Jeromy Farkas.[4]
