A party for all of us
Our Legislature is broken. Our two party system is not creating productive debate which furthers the interests of Albertans. This is typified by Bill 30: Health Statutes Amendment Act, 2020.
Acting Alberta Party Leader, Jacquie Fenske:
”Bill 30 misses an opportunity to create a health care system that is focused on patient outcomes. There are elements in the bill that show promise, but also things that need more scrutiny to ensure the strengths of the current system are maintained.”
The Alberta Party welcomes today’s decision by the Supreme Court of Canada to prevent further delays of the Trans Mountain pipeline. However, Alberta needs more options if it is to have a thriving oil and gas industry in the decades to come.
Today, the Premier released his plan to help Alberta recover economically from the COVID-19 pandemic and the oil price crash. While the Alberta Party welcomes an increase in infrastructure spending, the plan does little for Alberta based small businesses. Instead, it is focused on increasing the coffers of foreign owned large corporations.
Albertans are frustrated, justifiably so. The Fair Deal Panel report shows this, but it focuses our energy in the wrong ways and was a distraction from the problems Albertans face everyday. A faltering economy, underfunded education and health care systems, and no plan for our future economic prosperity are all critical issues.
Before you read this, somewhere in this province a farmer had already put in a few hours work, milking, feeding, seeding, or fixing. Today, we thank those who work hard to feed Albertans and strengthen our communities.
