EDMONTON — Alberta’s new official opposition is seeking more office space and more time to ask questions and present ideas in the legislature.

Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith has made the request in a letter to Premier Alison Redford.

In it, Smith says changes need to be made to ensure a healthier exchange of ideas.

She wants the number of questions given her party during question period increased from nine to 12 each day.

Smith also wants a block of time twice a month for her and the other opposition parties to propose legislation.

There is also the matter of office space; the Wildrose has a floor and a half in a building beside the legislature, but Smith says they need two floors.
