Tories in Red Deer for convention

First leadership forum held on Saturday night

Hundreds of delegates from the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta are in Red Deer for a policy convention and special general meeting this weekend.

The weekend will feature the first official leadership forum tonight. Six candidates in the running for leadership. Delegates can hear from PC leadership hopefuls Jason Kenney, Sandra Jansen, Richard Starke, Donna Kennedy-Glans, Stephan Khan and Byron Nelson.

The party will talk policy and will focus on six key areas including the economy, fiscal responsibility, the environment, health care, education and rural development today and tomorrow.

Members will also discuss constitutional amendments carried over from the Annual General Meeting in May.

“Our party has been working very hard since the last election to regain Albertans’ trust and support. This weekend’s policy conference will be an important step forward as we rebuild,” said PC Alberta president Katherine O’Neill.

“Not only we will be discussing the party’s core values, but we will also debate and vote on policy positions that will also serve as the initial foundation for our 2019 election platform.”

The forum is an open event and tickets are available online at pcalberta.org/events.
