Mid-Term Highlights

Posted on May 05, 2017 by Robbie Kreger-Smith

CALGARY, AB -  Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark has released the following statement on the two-year anniversary of the 2015 General Election:

Today marks the half-way point between the last election and the next, and I wanted to share my thoughts on what I’ve learned, what I’ve accomplished, and what’s left to do in the next two years.

My #1 job is to serve the people of Calgary-Elbow. I’ve learned that at least half of the job of an MLA is being present; being the places my constituents are and being available to them when they need me. I’m lucky to have smart, hard-working and caring people working in my constituency office, and they are always there to help people who need it.

As leader of the Alberta Party I also have a responsibility to all Albertans and to the members of my party to do what’s best for our province. I’ve worked with the government to improve legislation (sometimes successfully, often not), and I sit on committees in the hope my participation will have a positive impact on the lives of Albertans. Even when the government doesn’t follow my advice, rest assured I will keep advocating for all Albertans.  

I believe the NDP are on the wrong path. They have made a bad situation worse by not making even the smallest effort to control spending in the worst economic downturn in a generation. On the other end of the spectrum, the Wildrose have done nothing with their time in opposition beyond shouting down the government.  They haven’t told Albertans how they would address the challenges our province faces, and have given no indication of how they would govern beyond devastating public services. 

The role of an opposition is not just to oppose government. That’s only half the job. The other half is to propose solutions and to be a government in waiting.  Of all the work we’ve done so far, I’m especially proud of the three shadow budgets my tremendous caucus staff have put together. We have shown Albertans in great detail the choices we would make, and how we would balance the budget in four years without cuts to front-line services. It’s possible, we just have to try. 

Over the next two years I will continue helping my constituents (by continuing to push for flood mitigation and more), I will continue to hold the government to account and I will continue to talk in detail how the Alberta Party would do things better. 

I look forward to continuing to serve the people of Calgary Elbow and all Albertans for the next two years and for many years in the future.

My staff and I have compiled a list of some of the work we have done in the first two years. Rest assured we will continue to work hard to make Alberta better.
