A less than stunning close to the spring session

June 22, 2017 - 1:48pm

COALDALE - The Alberta Legislature recessed on the early morning of June 6th this year.  Eighteen Bills were passed this sitting. 

For me, the Provincial Budget was the largest disappointment of this sitting.  It laid out small increases in spending to both the Education and Health Ministries.  At the end of the day though, the government has chosen to borrow billions of dollars for schools, roads, hospitals and other infrastructure.  We are to be left with a $10.3 Billion deficit this year.   

Wildrose strikes framework agreement for conservative unity

COALDALE - Being an MLA is one of the greatest honours and privileges of my life. Every single day I feel  lucky and proud to serve all of the constituents in my riding.  Regardless of the changes that will come about in the next few months, I will continue to represent all constituents, regardless of their political stripe. 

Over the past decade, Wildrose has become the beating heart of the conservative movement in Alberta. Our strong grassroots members and supporters have propelled us through good times and bad, and today we are stronger than ever before.

Ending the fall session with a bang

COALDALE - At the end of the fall session of the Legislature, I was appointed to the Shadow Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.  It is a large portfolio, and I am currently in the process of becoming familiar with the file. I am aware that there are challenges and innovations that are taking place across the province in both of these industries, and I look forward to working with them.  I have made a few contacts in the industries and will be following up with them.

Busy start to 2017 as Alberta opposition

February 8, 2017 - 4:41pm

COALDALE - On January 1, 2017 Alberta’s carbon tax went into effect.  This is legislation that the Alberta Wildrose Party…and indeed all opposition parties…opposed when it was being debated in the legislature last spring.  However, it was passed with a government majority and has now become law.  Right now, everyone is figuring out just what that means to them and/or their businesses.  It will likely take a couple of months for the initial effects to be felt.  If you have any insights into these effects, I would appreciate hearing them.
