Michael Neufeld, Alberta Independence Party candidate for Red Deer-North

Michael Neufeld

Alberta Independence Party

I’m a 49-year-old husband, father of four, an oilpatch worker and a veteran of almost 10 years in the Canadian Navy. In the military, you learn discipline, a strong work ethic and diplomacy.

I was fortunate in my naval career to have travelled all over the world meeting some amazing people and experiencing a vast array of cultures, be it a meet and greet with all the provincial premiers at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, or being inspected by Queen Elizabeth II on the parade grounds in Victoria.

I feel the residents of Red Deer-North should vote for me because with one vote, you can get rid of Notley, Kenney and Trudeau. It doesn’t matter if you’re UCP, NDP, Liberal or other because we are Albertans sticking up for all Albertans.

In 2018, we sent Ottawa $50.3 billion and received $10.2 billion. That’s a loss of $40 billion. Just imagine what an Alberta could look like with that kind of money being spent here. We would be the world leaders in health care and education. The possibilities are endless.

We also have a Municipal Rose Plan, in which every one of the 87 ridings in Alberta will receive $36 million a year. Red Deer has two ridings, so that works out to $72 million a year.

We wouldn’t have to wait 15 years for a hospital upgrade/expansion, and how many nurses and teachers could you hire with millions of dollars at your disposal?

So, no taxes on the first $45,000 earned, no equalization payments, carbon tax or GST. The question becomes: Why would you vote for anyone else?
