Saskiw Releases Statement on Speaker’s Ruling

EDMONTON, AB (December 23, 2014)

Today, Wildrose House Leader Shayne Saskiw released the following statement on the Speaker affirming the Wildrose role as Official Opposition:

“We want to thank the Speaker for his ruling affirming the Wildrose as Alberta’s Official Opposition.

“Given prior precedent, it is our belief this ruling strengthens our democracy.  In the last election, over 440,000 Albertans overwhelmingly voted for the Wildrose to be their voice in the Legislature, a strong mandate neither the third nor the fourth parties received.

“Under our new Leader, Albertans will see a rejuvenated opposition that will never give up the fight for Alberta. We remain strong, capable and determined as ever.”
