Candidate
United Conservative Party

Like you, I see the struggles Albertans are facing everyday and how much more we stand to lose under the weight of out of touch NDP policies.  My family came to Alberta five generations ago and prospered through hard work and a free enterprise spirit just like my husband did when he came to Canada in the late 1980s.  We have seen yet again how catastrophic public policy can destroy the Alberta dream.  But next year we have the chance to start reversing the damage.  As a small business owner with experience in the energy sector, I am determined to be a strong voice for the residents of Calgary-Glenmore and work with our experienced and skilled UCP team to reignite the economy and get Alberta back on track.

What are the issues?

 

Education

It wasn’t long ago that Alberta’s education system was the envy of the world. Our students would consistently rank among the top in global achievement in subjects like math and science. In recent years, however, our education system began to slip and some students were left behind.

Health Care

Alberta’s health care system is nearing a state of crisis. Health care spending has never been higher and yet, wait times continue to skyrocket. Despite the best efforts of our dedicated health professionals, the doctors, nurses, and health care aides, emergency departments are overcrowded, operating rooms are unavailable, and EMS response times are often dangerously high.

Economy

Alberta is the economic engine of the country, driving growth to create jobs, wealth, and prosperity. But in recent years, that engine has slowed right down. Four years after the great recession of 2014, Alberta is still struggling to find its feet. The resilience and optimism of the Alberta spirit can still be felt across the province, but under the crushing burden of government regulation and over taxation, that spirit is waning.

Energy, Oil & Gas

Albertans know that our energy sector has allowed our province to thrive for generations. While some have apologized for our ingenuity in resource extraction, Alberta’s United Conservatives are proud of the accomplishments of our energy sector and the hard-working men and women employed by it of the Alberta spirit can still be felt across the province, but under the crushing burden of government regulation and over taxation, that spirit is waning.
