"It's that dream, that possibility, that should be more achievable here than anywhere else"
So, in that spirit, today's post will stress ALP positives, rather than PC negatives. To start things off, here's a fantastic video where Kevin Taft talks about Alberta's future. Watching the last minute made me wish I was back there fighting the good fight...
The Globe also had a very good profile of Kevin earlier this week, featuring my favourite all-time quote of his, which I unfortunately can't use because it's anti-Ed and I'm being nice to Ed in this post.
The Liberals made a few more big announcements this week. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that there aren't a lot of seniors reading this blog but, if there are, this one's for you.
On Wednesday, the Liberals proposed a "cities charter", which would give stable funding and more power to Calgary and Edmonton. This is something I've been hoping the ALP would roll out, both for political and public policy reasons. It should play well to their urban base - especially in Calgary after all Stelmach has put them through.
Oh, and this fundraising pitch landed in my inbox this evening - great idea. So, if you're still looking for a Valentine's gift for that special someone, nothing says "I love you" like a $37 donation in their name to the Alberta Liberal Party.
Albertans deserve a government that has the unmatched potential of this province clearly in sight, and an action plan for reaching that potential. The Alberta Liberals intend to form that government, but we need your help to make it happen.
If you make a donation of $37 or more today, you’ll help us bring 37 years of tired government to an end. Your donation – whatever you can manage – will help us win. Please visit our secure donations page at https://secure.whitematter.ca/alp/contribute.html to help us win.
