The once powerful Alberta Social Credit Party is looking to supplant the conservative leaning parties in the province they say “have forsaken their social conservative routes.”

A policy convention for the party has been scheduled for April 26 at the Golden Cottage Restaurant in Innisfail, at 5021 50th St. Party leader Len Skowronski said he would like “to invite all Albertans of good will” to attend the event.

Running from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., the convention will help the party update its policies to formulate an election platform aimed at addressing Albertans’ concerns.

“Albertans are ready to replace the Progressive Conservatives, but we must make sure it’s not the Wildrose Alliance puppets of the multinational oil and gas companies,” said Skowronski in a news release.

“We must show Albertans that Social Credit is the only alternative that strives to bring back good government with a high standard of morals and ethics.”
