I have been impressed as 3 candidates have stepped forward to lead the Wildrose party. These 3 candidates each have their strong points, and each one of them has more principles than the people from both parties that betrayed Albertans. However, the Wildrose is at a crossroads. We need a special leader to take us into the upcoming election. One with special skill sets and support that can take the Wildrose into this election and gain the confidence of Albertans.
