Update from Acting Leader Jacquie Fenske

Jacquie’s 2021 started off with a real bang, as the anger of Albertans took off over the travel history of UCP MLAs and staffers.

On Monday, she was interviewed as a guest on Real Talk with Ryan Jespersen. You can listen to her interview here (Former PC MLA Dr. Richard Starke starts at ~1:40, and Jacquie starts after that at 1:55)

Tuesday, she was on Danielle Smith's show.

Finally, on Friday, she was on the Insight Pints podcast.

Fundraising Challenge Update

The Facebook Members’ Fundraising effort started by Wayne Jackson added over $8,500 to the Q4 fundraising numbers! We are happy to share that we increased our Q4 fundraising by 27% over Q3. Thank you to everyone who is helping us set new standards and goals for the party.

This year will be critical for the Alberta Party as we elect a new leader. Please consider a monthly donation so we can maintain the momentum to create a Party for all Albertans.

This Week in Alberta

The news this week was dominated by the hypocrisy of the Premier and the UCP MLAs who felt entitled enough to ignore the advice they gave all Albertans.

The Grande Prairie Alberta Party Constituency Association made it into media nation-wide by welcoming Minister Allard back from her Hawaiian holiday tradition with a makeshift display of cards and leis.

Former Alberta Party candidate from Grande Prairie, Grant Berg, was interviewed by 630 CHED about the Aloha Scandal.

Eventually, the Premier accepted the resignation of Minister Allard from her Ministerial duties, demoted MLAs and fired a staffer who had travelled abroad but the damage has been done.

To ensure trust in the Legislature is restored, the Alberta Party has asked the NDP to file a motion of return when the Legislature returns in February.

By filing a Motion of Return, the schedules of all MLAs will be made public, and Albertans will know for sure who went where, when, and who knew about it.
