Red Deer South MLA Jason Stephan holding town hall Thursday

Red Deer’s hospital expansion, Red Deer Polytechnic and the premier’s leadership are among the topics Red Deer-South MLA Jason Stephan expects to touch on at a Thursday town hall.

“Many great things are happening in Red Deer, including $1.8 billion for our hospital and new degrees at Red Deer Polytechnic,” said Stephan in announcing the town hall set for 7 p.m. at the Baymont By Wyndham Red Deer hotel (former Red Deer Lodge) at 4311 49th Ave.

“Our community will benefit so much if we replace enabling drug addictions at the drug consumption site, with supporting our neighbors to become free of addictions. There is also a lot of interest in the upcoming leadership review of Jason Kenney in Red Deer on April 9.”
