    You're Invited to our Virtual Leaders Breakfast!

    The Leaders breakfast is a staple of politics. An opportunity to talk, express a vision, and engage with membership, they were also the place to be. But 2021 is shaping up to be another abnormal year.

    You are invited to our 3rd Virtual Leader’s breakfast, Acting Leader Jacquie Fenske. Join Jacquie on February 6th, 9am, and unlike a normal Leader’s breakfast, you can eat and drink whatever you choose.

    Our guest speakers will be Shadow Cabinet Ministers  Grant Berg and Brenda Stanton, Entrepreneur Jordan Jolicoeur from Carvel Electric and, of course, Jacquie herself. 

    Listen to our Shadow Cabinet ministers talk about art and tourism, small business and the role the Alberta Party will play in Alberta's future. Join the countless other Albertans looking for an alternative that cares about our future.

    Agriculture in 2021

    Agriculture in Alberta is already an economic driver, but we know we can do more. At the same time, there are multiple challenges facing farmers - technology, changing consumer tastes and perceptions, rural infrastructure, and geopolitics. How can Alberta ensure that rural communities are supported and agriculture becomes a major economic driver for our province’s prosperity.

    Please join our special guest Ian Donovan, former MLA from Mossleigh, farmer of 2,000 grain acres and, with his wife, a 7,200 square foot grow cannabis facility, and Shadow Minister for Agriculture,  Alberta Party Provincial Board Member, and long-time farmer Allen Preston as we discuss issues that will help form Alberta Party Policy in 2023.

  • Acting Leader Jacquie Fenske's Statement on MLA International Travel

    To say I’m livid is an understatement.
    Albertans are expected to have personal responsibility and do the right thing (instead of having mandated restrictions), and then get blamed when the numbers continue to climb.
    But elected officials aren’t held to that same standard?! We have MLA’s and Ministers of the crown showing complete lack of respect for decisions they have imposed on others such as restricting travel and we have the Premier’s chief of staff fly from the UK through the US to avoid the flight ban imposed because of the COVID mutation. The premier says he takes responsibility for not being specific enough in his directions. I would hope we have leaders who can follow the intent of directions and guidelines and don’t need every detail in their lives spelled out. “Tomorrow wear the blue socks with your grey shoes”. Is this how specific we want someone to dictate to us to live our lives? What a gong show. Where are the other MLA’s in the UCP government who see this as an insult to Albertans ? Time for them to stand up and be accounted or be painted by the same brush. We want a government with officials we can trust to do the right not just to the letter of the law legal thing.
    So, I guess following these examples by our current leaders we all should have travelled to Mexico to have that big New Year’s Party with all our friends. Visiting your friends down the block would lead to a fine but what happens in Mexico or Hawaii is okay. What is this province coming to?
    Acting Leader Jacquie Fenske

  • Welcome Minister Allard back from her Hawaiian Vacation

    Minister Allard, Welcome Home or as they say in Hawaii "Welina mai ka home".

     

     

    Throughout this pandemic, the provincial government has required all Albertans to work hard exercising personal responsibility.

    We've all made tremendous sacrifices. And one Albertan in particular has tonnes of work yet to do. Tracy Allard's ministry oversees emergency management, the Emergency Management Committee. 

    With a rough year in the rear-view and more challenges yet to come, Minister Allard got some tropical time away.

    Let's welcome her back in true Hawaiian fashion: by all dropping a lei off at her office. While we're at it, let's show our appreciation that her family traditions were upheld.  

    You may not live in Minister Allard's riding?  Take a moment to add your name to our "Welcome Home Card" we will be sending to her office.

    Post a picture of your lei on social media, and share what family traditions you missed this year.

    To show Minister Allard you especially care about personal responsibility, consider avoiding a trip to the store by making a lei out of what you have at home.

  • UCP Minster Fails the "Personal Responsibility" test

    Throughout the pandemic, Premier Kenney has taken less stringent public health measures than other Premiers. Rather than government mandates, he’s relied on Albertans exercising “personal responsibility.” He’s called for Albertans to voluntarily make the choices that will protect their neighbours from this deadly pandemic.

    Unfortunately, those closest to him have failed to be responsible. But we trust Albertans to behave better than the so-called leaders Jason Kenney has surrounded himself with.

    Albertans have made tremendous sacrifices. Through this holiday season, they’ve chosen to skip visiting with aging grandparents and newborn grandkids. They’ve given up family dinners, new years parties, and so much more. Most have taken government messaging to “stay home” to heart.

    Which makes it outrageous to see a Minister and senior UCP political staffers vacationing in Hawaii while the province cautions Albertans to “avoid non-essential travel outside of Canada.” And disconcerting to hear rumours that other key UCP members have also been travelling over the holidays.

    Over the coming days, there are going to be loud calls for Jason Kenney to follow the lead of Premier Ford and fire those who chose to flout travel restrictions. We support these calls.

    However, they must not overshadow something even more important: the need for everyday Albertans to continue to fight this pandemic.


    Acting Alberta Party Leader, Jacquie Fenske: “Leaders within the UCP have failed the ‘Personal Responsibility’ test. But I’ve always had a lot more faith in Albertans than I have in this government. Fortunately, everyday Albertans are rising above the UCP’s poor example. I trust most of us will continue to do our part to protect our neighbours.”


    Our first priority must be to safeguard lives. We also want our economy to fully open again as quickly as possible. These will only happen if everyday Albertans rise above the examples being set by the UCP.


  • Alberta Party welcomes new Interim Executive Director, Troy Wason

  • Auditors Report- a Symptom of a Larger Disease with the UCP Government

    The Auditor General’s recent Consolidated Financial Statements of the Province of Alberta 2019-2020 report of more than $1.7B in accounting errors highlights the fact that the UCP government has retained the entitlement mentality of previous conservative governments, disdaining accountability in spending, and using sole source contracts to limit transparency. 

    The Canadian Energy Centre, also known as the “Energy War Room”, has spent millions with no oversight or accountability to taxpayers. All with no discernable outcomes in achieving vague and undefined goals. 

    Handing out sole source contracts, delaying reporting for AISH, spending without limits and canceling contracts with huge penalties were common knowledge, but the impact was underestimated. 

    “Jason Kenney promised Albertans that the books would be put back in order - that cannot be done without transparency and honesty. Good governance includes being transparent with contract sourcing, being accountable for your decisions and responsible with taxpayer dollars.  These are core principles of the Alberta Party, but they should be core for all parties, especially the one with the provincial chequebook.” said Acting Leader Jacquie Fenske

    The Alberta Party calls on UCP MLA’s to step forward and hold their own Cabinet to account for the missteps and deliberate obstruction of responsible processes and financial practices.

    “UCP MLAs wouldn’t accept this kind of governance from another party, they shouldn’t accept it from their own,” Fenske added.

    Rail Line to Alaska Just Makes Sense

    The United States just approved an Alaska Alberta rail line project. The Alberta Party has been advocating for this for over a year, and it is an exciting development.

    Acting leader Jacquie Fenske:

     “The oil sands are a crucial economic driver for the province and the country, and integral to the world economy. This will not change, even as the world transitions to other forms of energy. The rare earth minerals found in the oil sands are going to play a crucial part in developing new energy technologies and other innovations, and their hydrogen potential could be world-changing. A rail line through Alaska will help us get our much-needed product market, today and in the future.”

    Statement from Acting Leader Jacquie Fenske on the Cabinet Shuffle:


    We welcome the new Municipal Affairs Minister and wish her well. As a backbencher, Tracy Allard worked hard in her appointments to travel the province and listen to Albertans. We trust that she will continue this work with municipal Councils. There is great opportunity for the government to build better communities by rolling up its sleeves to work alongside local elected representatives.

    Let Kenney Know, SHANDRO'S GOT TO GO

    Let our Premier know: Alberta needs to keep its rural doctors.

    That means Alberta needs a new health Minister. Sign our petition to send a message that Tyler Shandro needs to be fired.

    Let Kenney know: SHANDRO’S GOT TO GO!

    Sign the petition today. Albertans deserve quality medical care in their local communities. They shouldn’t have to drive to the city to deliver a baby, see their doctor, or visit the ER. But Tyler Shandro doesn’t understand or doesn’t care about the lives of rural Albertans. This Health Minister is chasing doctors out of Alberta. And it is causing a health care crises in the small communities that are the heart of our province.This isn’t about money: doctors have offered to take a pay cut. This is about Tyler Shandro being in over his head. He has shown himself to be immature, incapable, and incompetent. He has got to go.

    5 Reasons Tyler Shandro Should be Fired

    Over 40% of doctors surveyed are considering leaving Alberta. This is a healthcare crisis. And there is one cause of it: Tyler Shandro.

    Tyler Shandro has shown himself either incapable or unwilling to work with doctors and other health care professionals. He has no business leading the Ministry of Health. It is well past time for Premier Kenney to fire Tyler Shandro and bring competent, professional leadership into the role.

    Acting Alberta Party leader, Jacquie Fenske:

    “Throughout this pandemic, I’ve heard from a lot of doctors. These are driven, talented small business owners who have undertaken gruelling and expensive training to care for their patients. And they are demoralized. Risking their lives in a pandemic is tough enough. They shouldn’t also need to face constant, aggressive, misleading, inappropriate attacks from the Minister of Health.”
