EDMONTON, AB - March 1, 2016 - MLAs will now be required to claim actual living expenses after the Member Services Committee approved Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark’s proposed changes.
“I’m glad to see the committee adopt my suggestion to require MLAs to claim ‘up to’ the maximum allowable rather than claiming the maximum amount despite actual costs,” said Clark. “This will not only save taxpayers’ money, it shows MLAs are leading by example in difficult times.”
“This is one of the first issues I raised when I first became an MLA. Although it’s taken some time, it’s good to finally see the changes approved.

CALGARY, AB – February 29, 2016 – Following a decision by the Board of Directors, the Alberta Party has elected to not run a candidate in the Calgary-Greenway by-election.
"This byelection was called early by a government desperate to get it out of the way before a bad-news budget," said Clark. "We believe the best place to communicate our vision for Alberta is the Legislature, which starts next week. We will continue our role as the de-facto official opposition by sharing ideas on how to take Alberta forward in difficult times by releasing another alternative budget, ideas about how to rebuild the Heritage Fund, and other policies."
"Running in this byelection is not the best use of our resources as we build towards 2019,” said Greg Clark, leader of the Alberta Party. “We have a clear plan to build the Alberta Party and we’re on track to be a significant factor in the 2019 general election.

CALGARY, AB - February 25, 2016 - Alberta Party Caucus Leader Greg Clark has released a debt affordability analysis and recommendations for the Government of Alberta’s fiscal sustainability.
“Albertans expect more from this government,” said Clark. “If the NDs are going to be borrowing tens of billions of dollars, they need to do a deeper analysis of the costs of borrowing and show Albertans a clear plan to pay it back.”
The Alberta Party Caucus debt plan recommends the following:
1. Always use the most conservative figure available for forecasting purposes
2. Eliminate borrowing for operational spending
3. Develop and implement a debt affordability analysis to be incorporated into the annual budget which includes a detailed analysis of different scenarios based on key metrics like debt to GDP, debt as a percentage of revenues and other measures
