Conservvative government has Alberta headed in right direction

I am a proud Progressive Conservative, and I am proud of the accomplishments of the Progressive Conservative government. Progressive Conservative policies have made Alberta a dynamic and ever-growing province. Alberta’s oil and gas industry is marketing around the world, farmers and ranchers now have expanding markets, small businesses are prospering and all Albertans have every opportunity to succeed.
Alberta has the capacity and foresight to build the infrastructure to accommodate our increasing population and is doing so. Yet the opposition is telling us we need to change.
In all of this, I can’t help but reflect on some quotable quotes:
From David Yager, president of the Wildrose Party, in October 2013: “Let’s face it, Wildrose started out much like (the Reform Party) 25 years ago, as a protest movement. What you get is a collection of people that are disappointed with something for a lot of various reasons and they come together under a new political tent.”
In contrast, from Peter Lougheed: “Our whole approach as a political party was to talk not so much negatively, but we wanted to talk about the future of the province and we wanted to talk positively”.
The Progressive Conservative government has remained positive, has moved Alberta to prominence not only in Canada, but worldwide, and continues to do so today. Progressive Conservative policies have not needed a major overhaul to appeal to Albertans. I say, let’s stay positive – and Progressive Conservative.
