The Conservative Party in Alberta, which for the last 40 years has formed our provincial government, appears to be in disarray. Premier Ed Stelmach’s recent resignation and rumblings regarding property owners rights, the environment, deficits and the upcoming budged seems to have shaken their long standing, right of center, foundation.

The Alberta Party, which has existed in one form or another since 1985, aims to represent the center of the political spectrum. They have recently consulted with a wide range of Albertans before the development of their policy platform. The party advocates that Alberta, a potential world economic leader, should take advantage of a diversified long term economic plan favoring more stability and less, as is now the case, “boom and bust” cycles.

The speaker will explain how the Alberta Party plans to renew Albertans faith in the political process, while strengthening the educational and health care systems and proving that a healthy environment not only can coexist with, but is necessary for, a healthy economy.

Speaker: Sue Huff
