Update from Acting Leader Jacquie Fenske

At our Leader’s Breakfast last Saturday, President Conrad Guay announced the timeline of our leadership race. Jacquie spoke to CBC and Global News (segment starts at 8:25) about the upcoming race.

Jacquie also spoke on behalf of farmers who are losing an important government program that allowed them to participate in a carbon offset program that incentivized them to lower emissions.

You can hear her on the Danielle Smith Show.

This Week in Alberta

This week, the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo told the province no more.

After a number of dangerous incidents, council voted to no longer send EMS dispatch calls to AHS, in defiance of provincial orders.

Failed centralization of dispatch services is dangerous, and the Alberta Party is calling for jurisdiction to be returned to the municipalities.

On Friday the courts granted an interim injunction to AHS instructing the municipality to transfer services as planned. A permanent injunction hearing will be held in March.

The UCP Government reinstated the 1976 Lougheed coal development policy after months of pushback from farmers, ranchers, municipalities, and First Nations.

Municipalities who have been concerned about the development welcomed the news, but the some, like the Mayor of High River, says there needs to be a greater commitment to consultation about development on the Eastern Slopes.

After months of delaying a wage top up for Essential Workers in Alberta the UCP Government announced on Wednesday that they would access a small portion of the federal program.

This program would top-up the pay of front line workers who have worked so hard for so long.
