Michaela Glasgo (born 1992/1993) is a Canadian politician elected in the 2019 Alberta general election to represent the electoral district of Brooks-Medicine Hat in the 30th Alberta Legislature.[2]

In January 2019, Glasgo became involved in a controversy when she claimed on Twitter that her church would incur a $50,000 yearly bill due to Alberta's carbon tax; this was quickly disputed and found to be untrue. The pastor of the church later said that the true cost to the church would be $5,433 a year.[3] In June 2020 she was appointed to be Chairman of the Alberta Firearms Advisory Committee by Alberta Premier Jason Kenney.[4] In this role she will be in charge of advising the Executive Council of Alberta on its firearms policies.[5]

As a child, she played a game where she counted the pipelines on the side of the road. This was criticized by some as outlandish on social media.[6]
