Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan and MLA David Swann issue statement on 2019 Provincial Election.
Khan stated, “Alberta Liberals welcome the Premier’s confirmation of a Provincial Election in the Spring of 2019. We are gearing up our efforts to rollout a vigorous campaign in the coming months. Albertans will finally have a chance to exercise their choice on the future of this Province.
“The NDP have been a failed progressive government that did not deliver to Albertans on key issues such as protecting vulnerable Albertans, reducing classroom sizes, protecting our precious environment, paying down the massive debt, and keeping unregulated dark money out of our political system. They failed to introduce gender pay equity legislation, implement the recommendations of the “Valuing Mental Health” report or provide access to MAID services for all Albertans.
“The UCP will gut our social safety net with slash-and-burn spending cuts. They will destroy hard-fought gains for equality, inclusion and tolerance in Alberta. They courted Political Action Committee (“PAC”) money to undermine democracy that will disenfranchise Albertans. They want to turn back the clock to the 1960s.
“Alberta Liberals are a forward-thinking, progressive party. We will spend more wisely, not just spend more, like previous governments. We will invest in healthcare and education. We will protect vulnerable Albertans. We will safeguard our precious environment. We are not beholden to big unions or corporations. We will put Albertans first.
“Alberta Liberals will work hard to improve the quality of life for all Albertans. We look forward to the 2019 Provincial Election.”
Swann stated, “I will be working vigorously to help elect Liberal MLAs across this province in this upcoming election.
