Early in April the Alberta Progressive Conservative Caucus launched an initiative, “ENGAGE – A Conversation with Albertans”. ENGAGE will invite Albertans into a conversation about budget, finances and where our province is heading. With low oil prices, increasing budgetary pressures, and job losses in industries across the province, Alberta is experiencing many challenges.  

ENGAGE will seek public input on a variety of policy issues facing Alberta. Ric McIver will address these issues, and invite response as to future directions for our province. We will hear an update on what he is hearing from Albertans in the early stages of this conversation. He will also address the recent provincial budget, the PC response to it and offer some ideas about where he would lead Albertans.

Speaker: Alberta P.C. party leader, Ric McIver Ric McIver is the MLA for Calgary-Hays and Interim leader of PC Alberta. He currently serves as a member of Special Standing Committee on Members’ Services and as critic for Treasury Board & Finance, Municipal Affairs, and Labour portfolios.    Mr. McIver is a former cabinet minister who served on the Treasury Board and Transportation, Infrastructure and Jobs, Skills Training and Labour ministries. He is also a former City of Calgary alderman and a former food distribution and marketing wholesale business owner. He is married to Christine, the founder and CEO of the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta
