The Alberta Party leader thinks he’s seeing proof that Albertans are looking for an alternate choice.
The Alberta Party attended an event in Red Deer Saturday night where party leader Greg Clark said about 50 people showed up. He said he’s seeing even more turn up at event in Edmonton and Calgary.
“There really is an interest in people finding a political home in the centre of the spectrum that fits with their values. With this group that was there is Red Deer yesterday I think we’re going to keep talking and we’ll see what comes of it. In the meantime, we’re going to continue building the Alberta Party, I’m going to continue doing my work in the legislature holding the NDP accountable and presenting our ideas for how we would address the big challenges facing our province,” said Clark on the Alberta Morning News.
“Over the last couple of months, a lot of people have been approaching me wanting to build a strong centrist party. They don’t feel like there’s a home for them in a Jason Kenney led PC party or a new right wing party and they certainly don’t think the NDP is a good fit for them.”
Clark said his party is his party is mostly people who are fiscally responsible, socially moderate, care about their neighbours and want good fiscal discipline.
