Alberta Party Ready for Election
EDMONTON – The Alberta Party launched its 2012 Election Campaign immediately after Premier Allison Redford announced that Albertans are going to the polls on April 23, 2012.
“Our candidates and volunteers have been on the doorsteps for months. Now we shift the campaign into high gear”, said Glenn Taylor, Leader of the Alberta Party.
Last week, the Alberta Party released We Can Dream Bigger, its 2012 election platform. The platform focuses on making Alberta the best place to live and is built around five core ideas:
- Albertans can be the healthiest people in Canada.
- Albertans can be the best-educated people in the world.
- Alberta can have the most open and transparent government.
- Alberta can be the best place to earn a living.
- Alberta’s communities can be the best places to live and raise a family.
Taylor expects that healthcare and accountability will be the central issue in the election.
“On the doors, we keep hearing about how upset Albertans are about the bullying and intimidation of Alberta’s physicians and the lack of accountability of our MLAs,” said Taylor. “However, we have also heard that most Albertans believe that the province is underachieving in virtually everything. Our job is to show Albertans that we have the best plan to make Alberta better”.
About the Alberta Party
The Alberta Party is a new political movement dedicated to transforming government through citizen engagement. Instead of representing a particular segment of the traditional political spectrum, the Alberta Party seeks out the best ideas, regardless of whether they are perceived to be from the left or the right. The party has built its policy through the Big Listen, a public engagement process that involved over a thousand Albertans. Glenn Taylor was elected as leader of the Alberta Party in May 2011.
