The Alberta Party is looking to provide a voice to Albertans who feel that their perspectives aren't being heard on the right or the left.
The Party is looking to prioritize fiscal and social issues at the same time.
"I like to say that we can walk and chew gum at the same time. We're looking at Alberta as a whole and the practical things that need to be done," said Jacquie Fenske, volunteer with the Alberta Party. "For example, we can't wait until the debt is paid off to begin taking care of your grandmother because she just won't be here."
The economy is a central concern for many Albertans; and the Alberta Party offers an alternative perspective on the economic actions of the current government.
"We do not believe that a Carbon Tax should be placed on home heating. We live in Alberta. It's cold. We need our furnaces," said Fenske. "As well, we want to represent the people. I know that our leader, Stephen Mandel, has been talking to businesses and as a small business owner myself, I know that we need to make some changes."
The centrist Alberta Party was created in 1985.
The party was a part of the 2018 Trade Show and Sale at the Dow Centennial Centre.
