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
An Alberta Party government will build new lanes on the QE2 highway, upgrade our existing highway network, create Canada’s first corridor for self-driving vehicles, and position Alberta as a world leader in self-driving vehicles for cold-weather climates.
“Self-driving vehicles are already in use and more are on the way. We can either get ready for this or get left behind. An Alberta Party government will get us ready by building new lanes on the QE2, and positioning Alberta as a world leader in self-driving vehicles for colder climates -- cars, trucks, and even farm equipment. This will make us more competitive, and be an entirely new source of jobs and growth -- fueled by the incredible minds and assets we have in artificial intelligence” - Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel
