Alberta Together Sets Meeting in Red Deer

Alberta Politics

EDMONTON – Alberta Together welcomes all Albertans to join them on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at the Black Knight Inn, in Red Deer, AB. The not-for-profit organization is hosting a half-day event that will include interactive conversations about the current political landscape, growing the next generation of political leaders, and how to ensure a centrist political voice will be represented in the 2019 election.

By the end of the meeting, it is expected that a consensus on how to move forward, together, will be made.

“Right now, we have a very polarized political system in our province and I think people are really hungry for something that’s more moderate, modern and that speaks to them,” said Katherine O’Neill, Alberta Together’s Executive Director. “Together, we can build a solid blueprint for Alberta’s future that fosters our province’s fierce entrepreneurial spirit while still being fiscally responsible and socially moderate.”

Ms. O’Neill added that less than 100,000 Albertans are currently card-carrying members of any provincial political party.

“At the end of the day, we simply want a positive, honest, hard-working government that is fiscally prudent with our money and respects the diversity of this province,” she said.

Work to bring together centrist political voices in Alberta began earlier this spring. Several meetings, both informal and formal, were held across the province, including a meeting in Red Deer on April 15, 2017.

Former and current members of all major political parties in Alberta will be in attendance on June 24. People who have no previous involvement in politics will also be in attendance.

Speakers Include:
Pat Cochrane, President, Alberta Party
Greg Clark, Leader, Alberta Party
Kerry Cundal, Former Alberta Liberal Leadership Candidate
Stephen Mandel, Former Health Minister and Mayor of Edmonton
Emcees, Katherine O’Neill and Harman Kandola
