Wildrose “On Your Side” Tour Chance to Hear From Everyday Albertans

This summer, Wildrose is embarking on a province-wide tour entitled “On Your Side”.

The tour is an opportunity for myself as Wildrose Leader and our entire team of 22 MLAs to travel across the province to hear from everyday Albertans.

Grassroots supporters are the most important level of any political organization. They tell us what issues are most important to Albertans on the ground, and give feedback on proposed solutions.

If you believe in smaller government, safer communities, and stronger families, you have a place in the Wildrose grassroots.

So far, we had a very successful kickoff to our tour in Airdrie – where over 400 Albertans came out to hear the Wildrose vision for our province – followed by great events in Red Deer, Edmonton, and Grande Prairie.

I can tell you that the most common message I get is how damaging the NDP government’s policies are, and what an impact they are having on day to day life.

Here in Alberta, we know just how important the energy industry, the farming industry, and the manufacturing industry are to the prosperity of our province. But with the new policies that the NDP government has put into place – from an unnecessary Royalty Review, to Bill 6, to increasing various business taxes – they are slowly but surely stripping away the Alberta Advantage.

That’s why it is so important for Wildrose to visit communities from Medicine Hat to Grande Prairie this summer to hear from everyday Albertans about the true impact of the NDP.

It’s also why I care so strongly about presenting a clear vision for the province to offer an alternative to the damage that the NDP government is doing.

In the coming weeks and months, I sincerely hope that we will hear the voices of hundreds if not thousands of everyday Albertans at these “On Your Side” town halls.

It is truly to an honour to be the Leader of the Wildrose, and to be on the side of the hard working moms and dads, oil field workers, teachers, nurses and small business owners who make our province the wonderful place it is to live, work and raise a family.

While the NDP government may be trying to take away the Alberta Advantage, you have my word that in the Wildrose we will be fighting tooth and nail to stop them from succeeding. It’s too important to be distracted by anything else.

So please, if and when we are in your neck of the woods for the “On Your Side” tour, I sincerely hope that you will take the time out of your busy schedule to attend. The future prosperity of our prosperity depends on me hearing from people like you.

Wednesday, Aug 3rd – Lethbridge

Thursday, Aug 4th – Calgary
