Paul Hardy, Alberta Party candidate for Red Deer-North

Paul Hardy

Alberta Party

A 60-year-old man presents to the emergency department with crushing chest pain radiating down his left arm. He is having a heart attack, until proven otherwise.

Similarly, when governments fail to invest sufficiently in Red Deer health infrastructure, year after year, mandate after mandate, they will continue to do so, until proven otherwise.

The burden of proof is theirs and their promises must be believable. Without immediate decisions and action, our hospital and community will be left further behind.

I have seen Red Deer Regional Hospital expansion passed over numerous times, often for political reasons. This is why I am running in the election, and my values fit well with the Alberta Party.

I am committed to hospital expansion, including a cardiac catheterization lab.

I am Paul Hardy, Alberta Party candidate for Red Deer-North. As a surgeon at the Red Deer Hospital, I also have significant experience building surgical programs in smaller hospitals outside of Red Deer, improving central Albertans’ access to surgery.

I’ve worked in health care in a number of Canadian jurisdictions, giving me a broad perspective of the complexity and variety of how efficient health systems work.

I believe prevention is better than treatment. Tailoring jobs for the future is a clear objective of our party.

Harm reduction and support of society’s most vulnerable are not only the morally correct approach, but will pay dividends in the future.

I strongly support publicly funded education, health care and seniors care. Spending public money wisely is vital to balance budgets for the long term.

The Alberta Party is a viable alternative to earn your vote.
