EDMONTON - Today is Election Day, the most important day in any democracy. Last election only 40% of Albertans made the effort to cast their ballot. Today’s election is the most important in a generation and I ask every Albertan to get out today and vote.
Vote for the candidate you think will best represent you in the Legislature. Vote for the candidate who best represents your values. Vote for the candidate you trust. Every vote counts and today, more than ever, we can shape tomorrow for the better.
From the last 28 days, it’s obvious that Albertans are dissatisfied with the Progressive Conservative Government and are looking for an alternative. It also clear that many Albertans are extremely uncomfortable with the policies and, perhaps more significantly, the perspective of some of the people behind the Wildrose Party. It appears that many Albertans are willing to hold their noses and vote for the Wildrose in order to send the PCs a message. On the other hand, just as many Albertans appear willing to hold their noses and vote for the PCs to keep the Wildrose from forming government.
Democracy should be about voting for something you believe in, not voting against something you don’t.
We are building a party that people can be proud to vote for. That’s why it is so important for our supporters to hold firm and cast their vote for their Alberta Party candidate. Every vote increases our legitimacy in the eyes of the general public and the media. Every vote helps us attract more supporters and donors in the future. That’s why your vote today is so important.
