Alberta Alliance True Conservative Tour

Paul Hinman listening at Town Hall in Red Deer

Alberta Alliance leader and MLA Paul Hinman is touring the province so he can talk and learn from Albertans. He is concerned with how the current government only listens to what they want to hear. This inattention is costing jobs and damaging our future. Especially worrying has been the recent attacks by the provincial government on the oil and gas industries. It is estimate that 40% of Alberta economy is directly or indirectly reliant on these resources. The increase royalty rates will hurt everyone in this province.

For this reason, he is hosting a Town Hall Forum at the North Hill Inn in Red Deer at 7:30pm on January 21st. Mr. Hinman will be speaking about importance of returning to the true conservative economics that made Alberta so successful. Duane Mather, President and CEO of the drilling company, Nabors Canada and John A. Murdoch, CEO and Director of Madison Energy will be speaking and fielding questions on issues surrounding the oil and gas industry.

It will also be a historic time for the Alberta Alliance, as two days prior, on January 19, the Alliance is set to merge with the Wildrose party to unite the right in Alberta. The new Wildrose Alliance will be ready to contest seats in the upcoming provincial election.

Hinman and the Alliance want to hear the stories of every Albertan. The best solutions and most successful ideas come from the people on the ground not a few government appointed elites.


This kicks off a series of townhalls....

Club Alouette

Jan. 24

I must say I actually preferred the old name "Wildrose Party of Alberta" as opposed to Alberta Alliance. The former alludes to beauty and freedom; a lovely image. The latter sounds like something out of StarWars at worst and a stepping stone to reuniting the federal right at best.

I notice that most of your stops are in Northern Alberta ... how is support up there? I'd expect Southern (as in south of Calgary) Alberta to be the party's 'heartland'.

Edmonton is the "Liberal" city (in Albetan terms) right?

Although the CPC swept the province in 2006, in provincial politics the majority of the Liberal seats and the 2 NDP seats are in the city of Edmonton.

We had one in Calgary (November) and it has spread out from that. We are seeing continued and new support from every corner of the province.

Upcoming meetings are not concentrating on any one area...
