You're invited! Roundtable - Hydrogen Energy Session December 16th

Building on the information from the Education Session hosted last month, we take a deep dive into this topic to discuss how this fits in the Alberta Party universe.

Information from this session will be shared with the Shadow Cabinet and future Policy conversations. Space is limited for this December 16th session at 7pm.

RSVP to the Session

Did you know we have hosted over 10 Engagement Sessions virtually to hundreds of members over the last five months? Topics ranged from Post Secondary, to Energy and more.

If you know someone who is an expert that can help educate and help inform our policies going forward, please reach out to [email protected]

Fundraising Projects

How much does a website overhaul cost? Early estimates are budgeted between $10,000 and $15,000.

We have already earmarked some of our increased donations this quarter to this project, but we need your help.

Donate $23 towards the Alberta Party website!

This Week in Alberta

COVID continues to be most deadly to those in long-term care facilities. This week, the Alberta Party called for action to fix the situation and prevent future tragedies.

Read the Statement

The current government lacks a proper plan to re-invigorate our economy. Meanwhile, Saskatchewan is seeing successes. This week, a Saskatoon-based company drilled the world’s first 90-degree horizontal geothermal well.

Read the Story

Finally, news broke Wednesday that Alberta has requested field hospitals from the federal government and the Red Cross to ensure hospitals are not overwhelmed.

The provincial government wasted the summer to prepare for the second wave every expert knew was coming.

Interesting Read

The extreme nature of our politics stems, partially, from a lack of leadership. One true sign of leadership is positive, hopeful, and inspiring speech. This article from The Critic asks “Where have all the Orators gone?”
