CALGARY, AB - December 10, 2015 - Alberta Party Opposition Leader Greg Clark has released the following highlights of the Fall 2015 Session.
“I’m proud of our accomplishments this session, and I think that Albertans have seen us as a voice of reason in the house. We are the only party that chooses to propose ideas, not just oppose the government. I believe that opposition members should seek to contribute new ideas, and provide insight into what they themselves would do, rather than only providing criticism without contribution.

EDMONTON, AB - December 9, 2015 - Although disappointed it wasn’t possible to resell homes purchased under the floodway buyout program, today’s announcement is another step on the long road to recovery for Calgarians still recovering from the 2013 flood, says Alberta Party leader and Calgary-Elbow MLA Greg Clark.
“I met with Minister Larivee and I’m satisfied and I take her at her word that it wasn’t possible to resell the homes, even those that suffered relative minor damage or were repaired by their previous owner,” said Clark. “I look forward to the consultation in January to seek community input on the immediate and long-term future for the land.”

EDMONTON, AB - November 22, 2015 - Alberta Party Opposition Leader Greg Clark is broadly supportive of the ND climate plan and calls on the government to use this strategy to unapologetically promote market access for Alberta industry.
“There are a number of similarities between this report and our plan Alberta’s Contribution: The Alberta Party Climate Change Strategy, and I am pleased to see they’ve adopted a number of strategies we recommended,” said Clark.
“That said, I am concerned about the scale of the carbon price and the fact the plan is not truly revenue neutral – it still comes at a cost to the average Albertan. I would have liked to see tax cuts, but support the investment in R&D and green technology.”

Edmonton (November 18, 2015) – Alberta Party Opposition Leader Greg Clark released his Climate Change plan as an alternative to the forthcoming NDP Climate Change document.
“Alberta must do its part to address climate change,” said Clark. “Our policy focuses on market-based innovation driven by Alberta entrepreneurs. Alberta’s contribution to the fight against climate change comes from creating technologies that will help diversify our economy and allow Alberta to continue to grow production from the oil sands and conventional sources.”
