Stephen Mandel announced an Alberta Party government would immediately move to keep more of Albertans’ money within the province, to help fund schools, hospitals and other provincial services, and to reduce the power imbalance between Alberta and Ottawa. An Alberta Party government commits to fighting to ensure Albertans receive the same treatment from the federal government as Quebec.
“Every year Albertans send billions of dollars to Ottawa that aren’t spent on Albertans, but instead given away to other provinces. In return, we receive rejection, scorn and attacks on our industries and our way of life. We see that with a hijacked coastline, and an unfair equalization program, and refusals to consider pipelines like Energy East.”
As the only provincial party not beholden to federal counterparts, the Alberta Party will stand up to Ottawa.
“Albertans are tired of being taken for granted by Ottawa and others. The NDP have been in cahoots with the Trudeau government and failed us. Jason Kenney failed us when he was in Ottawa for nearly 20 years. The Alberta Party is going to take decisive action to keep more of Albertans’ money here in Alberta, so it can be used for schools, hospitals, and other key services for our province.”
An Alberta Party government will cancel the NDP carbon tax for families and small

Beth Barberree Alberta Party candidate for Calgary-Varsity, “For nearly 10 years now, both the former PC government and the current NDP government have failed to act, despite an ongoing stream of sexual assault charges against predatory massage therapists.”
Already, this election campaign has been riddled with an American-style "call out your opponent" type of rhetoric! Rather than getting into the fray, the Alberta Party is bringing solutions that prioritize efficient provision of our essential services and that also focus on job creation in a variety of sectors.
Instead of the fracturing of the "united" right and big ticket promises on the left…..
