CALGARY - January 13, 2016 - Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark is pleased to see that his motion, though not debated in the house, has been taken seriously by the Minister of Education.
“My motion was on the order paper this past session, and I was able to share my concerns with the Minister many times during the fall sitting,” said Clark. “I was proud to argue for my motion, stating that Alberta's Minister of Education needs to step in to impose a uniform policy on any board that does not full implement Bill 10, including an acceptable sexual orientation and gender identity and expression policy, and included a firm deadline of March 31, 2016.”

CALGARY, AB - January 7, 2016 - The joint investigation by Alberta’s Information and Privacy Commissioner and Public Interest Commissioner into allegations of improper destruction of records by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development in the wake of the 2015 provincial election leaves more questions and demands further investigation says Alberta Party Opposition Leader Clark.
“This is why I wrote my letter of May 8th, and submitted a variety of FOIP requests on these particular records,” said Clark. “It was the very first thing I did as an MLA. I only wish the NDP had taken this seriously – perhaps then some of those 344 boxes of records would not have been destroyed.”
Clark called on the Information and Privacy Commissioner to undertake a second investigation.

EDMONTON, AB - December 18, 2015 - Alberta Party Opposition Leader Greg Clark has serious concerns about Alberta’s financial future following S&P credit rating downgrade.
“We saw this coming,” said Clark. “This exact situation is why I asked the Minister of Finance multiple times if they had prepared a sensitivity analysis regarding a credit rating downgrade.

EDMONTON, AB - December 18, 2015 - Alberta Party Opposition Leader Greg Clark is frustrated at the NDP Government’s unwillingness to talk with Albertans about important issues in the province.
“The NDP used their majority to vote down my motion to consult Albertans in person and online,” said Clark. “An ad in a paper is no replacement for town halls and direct meetings to properly engage Albertans. This would have been a first step to truly engaging in a province-wide debate about the state of democracy in Alberta. Instead they once again chose to limit access to real, substantive consultation.
