Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan demands the NDP Government act on police carding.
The Alberta Liberals believe police carding should be banned. The NDP Government failed to keep their promise and act on the carding issue. We are demanding action before the next election.
Khan stated, “The practice of carding does not work, according to studies. It is not an effective policing tool. It targets visible minorities. It alienates communities and undermines individual rights. It must stop.”
Carding has been defined as “when a police officer randomly asks an individual to provide identifying information when there is no objectively suspicious activity. The individual is not suspected of any offence. There is no reason to believe the individual has any information on any offence.”

Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan and Liberal MLA David Swann wish all Albertans a Happy New Year.
The past year has been tough for many Albertans. Falling oil prices and a sputtering economy have led to job losses and personal hardships. Mental health hotlines have seen a significant increase in calls from people in distress. Inflamed political rhetoric has spawned calls for separation.
Albertans deserve better. We are hard working, resilient and honourable. We love our province. We love our country.
Alberta Liberals will continue to fight for all Albertans. We will hold the Government to account on issues like boosting job creation, building the Trans Mountain pipeline, accessing quality healthcare, reducing classroom sizes, protecting our precious environment, safeguarding LGBTQ2S+ rights and improving the quality of life for all of us.
Albertans have a chance to vote for change in the next provincial election. They can vote for a brighter future with improved opportunities for everyone.
We have hope for a prosperous and promising New Year.
2018 has been tough. Alberta Liberals have your back. 2019 will be a better.
