Alberta Provincial Election - 2012

I am intrigued with the Alberta provincial election. My involvement in Canadian and Saskatchewan politics for over fifty years allows me to see campaigns beyond the polling. Albertans have a special opportunity before them as they approach Election Day. It is not often when fresh, young leaders like Danielle Smith, leader of the Wildrose Party, offer voters a better future.

I have been a conservative all my life, but if I lived in Alberta, I would be voting for Danielle Smith and the Wildrose Party. Yes, Peter Lougheed was a great Premier when he broke on the scene unseating the governing Social Credit Party. Allison Redford is desperate. The fact Peter Lougheed came out in an effort to break the conservatives fall from power is evidence of that reality.

Danielle Smith is the right leader for Alberta now and for their future. Albertans have more to gain by voting for her and the Wildrose Party than any other leader or party in this election. It is an opportunity for voters to get big government out of their face for a while. It is an opportunity for voters to take back control of their elected officials and regain control of their government. It is an opportunity for a fresh start with a fresh young leader like Danielle Smith.

Come on Albertans vote for the Wildrose Party and make Danielle Smith your next Premier.
