Reimagining our Democracy
April 14, 2012
CALGARY - For years “public engagement” in Alberta has simply been a term used by the government to sell its policies to Albertans. The Alberta Party will make our democracy more citizen-oriented by:
- Implementing meaningful public engagement for government decisions before they are made, using a combination of online and in-person techniques.
- Opening the budget process to include citizen engagement and input.
- Eliminate the Public Affairs Bureau, the government public relations department.
- Ensuring that all non-confidential government data is freely and easily available to all Albertans.
“Improving the way our democracy works is the key to improving how our government works. With a few simple changes, Alberta can become the most open and transparent government in Canada” says Glenn Taylor.
