On behalf of the Alberta Party Board of Directors I want to thank you all.
The Alberta Party has seen the largest growth in vote share of any party. Compared to 2015, our share of the vote has increased by over 300%! We should all be extremely proud of the effort we put into this election.
More than anything this election campaign has focused on pipeline strategies. The challenge for voters is both major parties have strategies that come up short, in fact, a Kenney-led government will result in negative progress.
Leader Stephen Mandel outlined how an Alberta Party government would boost the province’s agriculture and agri-food industry. The plan includes the creation of a new innovation institute focused on investing in export markets and modernizing the Agriculture Financial Services Corporation.
An Alberta Party government would take bold steps to secure long-term coastal access for Alberta products, by bypassing BC coastlines, and securing the right-of-way and approvals for an Alberta-to-Alaska railway and pipeline corridor.
An Alberta Party government will establish a technology development fund focused on forestry resources, make changes to the building code, and enhance exports. This will significantly boost Alberta's forestry industry by enabling a substantial increase in demand for forestry products.
“Our forestry industry has huge growth potential for our province and we can take advantage of it with smart government support and rule changes. We should be building more of our great towns and cities with sustainably grown and harvested Alberta lumber. And we should be using cutting-edge research to find new and creative uses for our resources.” - Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel
