    I was horrified to learn of the despicable murder of John Ridsdel today. My thoughts are with his family and those still held hostage. I pray for their safe return.

    Alberta charities work on the front lines to assist those impacted most by the economic crisis our province is facing. They provide transportation to those who can’t afford to drive. Shelter to those without a home. Meals to those who aren’t able to put food on the tables. All of these services require fuel, electricity and heat and the NDP carbon tax will make all of this much more expensive. Demand for services has never been higher but the NDP refuses to provide carbon tax exemptions for Alberta charities and non-profits. When people need help most, the NDP has made their lives more difficult.

    Beginning at sundown, Jewish families here in Alberta will be joined by millions of people around the world to mark the beginning of Passover and commemorate the Hebrew exodus from slavery in ancient Egypt. Passover is a time for families to gather around the Seder table and remember the strength and resilience of the Jewish people throughout their long history. I extend my very best wishes to all celebrating Passover.

    Alberta charities are the people who are dealing first hand with the economic crisis this province is facing. Meals on Wheels provides home-delivered food services to those in need. Those wheels don’t run on solar panels. As temperatures drop in the dead of winter, heating costs will skyrocket for homeless shelters providing emergency relief for our most vulnerable. The carbon tax will just make life more difficult for these charities trying to help.

    Thanks for all the comments on my video last night. You can see my full response to the NDP budget in the video below. Albertans were looking for leadership and hope. Budget 2016 delivered tax hikes and more bad news. I can’t help but think that Albertans expected so much more.

    I was proud to stand up in the legislature to respond to the NDP’s budget today and speak up for Albertans out of work. It was disappointing to hear the NDP making jokes about the $58 billion of debt they’re piling up with their record deficit and their failure on a job creation program. This is a serious issue. People are unemployed in this province. And people can’t find jobs.

    At a time when Albertans are hurting this government thinks that higher taxes are the answer. Albertans who are worried about how they will pay their bills should not have to pay for the government’s borrowing and spending problems. We already know that Albertans will be paying $1000 more in Carbon Tax but now we find out that property taxes are also going up. Instead of giving Albertans the hand up that they need the NDP are just making things worse.

    The mounting debt in Alberta should be a concern for every Albertan. Higher interest payments mean fewer dollars that could go to teachers, nurses and essential front line services. At a time when Albertans want hope this government is just making things worse.

    I would like to congratulate my friend Brian Pallister and his conservative team on his strong majority victory tonight. It’s a clear sign that a growing number of Canadians want their leaders to focus on a low tax agenda that focuses spending on core services. Mr. Pallister also ran on an agenda that seeks to grow Alberta and Manitoba’s relationship by joining the New West Partnership. I encourage Premier Rachel Notley to stop her government’s review seeking to back out of this critical partnership and work with our new partners in Manitoba.

    While thousands of Albertans are losing their jobs across the province, the Premier has a message for those who don’t want higher taxes: “Change your car.” It’s completely out of touch with the struggles many Albertans are facing. Families own larger vehicles to get their kids to hockey practice, contractors own trucks so they can move their tools. The Premier should be spending her time finding a way to create jobs and give our energy sector some stability instead of taxing Albertans who are already hurting.

    This government’s carbon tax will hit every single family hard in their pocket books and increase costs for businesses at a time they can least afford it. This tax will cost the typical household at least $1,000 per year, but the NDP government insists on being dishonest about the full and far reaching impacts this, and other policy decisions they are making, will have. It’s just the wrong choice to make for our economy and jobs at a time when families and businesses are being forced to squeeze every penny.

    The NDP budget is only making things worse for families. It’ll cost the average household $1,000 per year. Three quarters of all the carbon tax revenue is going straight to government slush funds. If you do qualify for any rebates, you will still be hit hard through higher power bills and consumer goods.

    The NDP government’s budget is making things worse by slamming families with $58 billion of debt that will mean $2,000 per family for interest payments, and a punishing new carbon tax that unfairly targets working families for another $1,000 per year. The NDP plan will hit families hard this year with a worsening economy, a punishing new carbon tax and dangerous new levels of borrowing. There is no effort to reduce spending, while an irresponsible carbon tax and unprecedented levels of government debt will hit Albertans’ pocket books hard. Albertans were hoping for an end to risky NDP experiments, a real plan on jobs and a vision to get our budget back to balance, but instead this NDP government is only making things worse.

    It was my privilege to speak with Albertans yesterday about our Wildrose plan to save $2 billion and rebuild the Alberta Advantage. After Albertans worked so hard to be debt free, the NDP will rack up $50 billion of debt in just a few short years. We cannot spend our way out of deficit, and we cannot borrow our way out of debt. We need to get our financial house in order, and that starts with the NDP government adopting the ideas in our 10-point budget sustainability plan.

    After promising Albertans that a carbon tax would get our pipelines approved, it seems the only buy-in that the Premier has gained is from the oil sands protestors in her own back bench. If that’s all the ‘social license’ a $3 billion tax will buy, Albertans should ask for a refund.

    Today, Wildrose announced 10 common sense budget recommendations that could begin to get Alberta back on the right track. If the NDP government adopts these recommendations it would be a cost savings of $2 billion. Our Budget Sustainability Recommendations cut costs while maintaining essential services and keeping front line staff. After 8 consecutive deficits by the last 5 Premiers, it’s time to get Alberta back on the path to sustainability and restore the Alberta Advantage. Read more at wildro.se/2016recommendations

    As shocking as the ideas may be to most Albertans, the Leap Manifesto and ideas behind it is nothing new to NDP politics. The fingerprints of many in the NDP government can be found all over the ideas behind the Leap Manifesto. The Premier's chief of staff ran for the leadership of the federal NDP on a plan to end the use of fossil fuels in Canadian cities. Our own Environment Minister sought and received the endorsement of the main author of the Leap Manifesto, Avi Lewis, prior to her election last May. And the number of former anti-oil and anti pipeline activists working in ministers offices has been well documented and reported. The Premier and her cabinet have spent months divorcing themselves from their past positions on Alberta's energy industry and now they're trying to divorce themselves from the federal party who have simply taken up the mantle formerly held by members of our own government. We're glad that the Premier has changed her tune on the need for pipelines but she must recognize that what we saw happen at the convention yesterday, was just as much the making of years of past efforts from members of our government, as it is anyone else's.

    Yesterday, I had the opportunity to tour TEC Edmonton. TEC Edmonton is one of many made in Alberta organizations that help build our province up, create jobs, and spur innovation in our economy. Groups like TEC Edmonton help nurture and develop creativity and grow businesses from the ground up and that should be celebrated. These are some of the same reasons that Wildrose released our 12 Point Jobs Action Plan. Our plan seeks to reward creativity, invest and maximize in our knowledge infrastructure. It removes obstacles like higher taxes and red tape, and would put that money back into taxpayers’ pockets. You can read more about our plan here: wildro.se/jobsactionplan

    Last October, Premier Notley said Thomas Mulcair was the best man to be prime minister. Today, her party is debating and entertaining the idea of keeping Alberta oil in the ground. Ms. Notley should publicly condemn this motion and stop entertaining these anti-jobs, radical ideas that will hurt Alberta's economy.

    Premier Notley accused us of a campaign of “mistruths” to get pipelines built, while ignoring the fact that Ottawa is actively working against Alberta’s energy projects. It’s time for the NDP to show leadership and fight for pipeline access and to fight against a west coast tanker ban. Wildrose is the only party that is speaking up and putting the best interests of Albertans first.

    Congratulations to Brad Wall and the Saskatchewan Party on their election win tonight! Mr. Wall and Saskatchewan are strong allies for Alberta and our shared interests. Tonight’s election win sends a message that people in western Canada increasingly want policies focused on job creation and the defense of our energy sector. To date, Premier Notley has done little to create unity with this very important western partner. I encourage our government to better engage with Premier Wall and the Saskatchewan government moving forward.

    While the Prime Minister is in Alberta, his environment ministers says the federal government is “moving in the direction” of halting the development of the oil sector. This isn’t providing hope to Albertans out of work. The energy sector has been the economic engine of Canada for many, many years and Canadians expect the federal government to support it in its time of need, not take steps to kill it. Mr. Trudeau must explain these comments while he’s here visiting our great province. Albertans deserve an explanation.

    One year ago I became the Leader of the Wildrose Party. When pundits were saying Wildrose would be wiped out, I knew, with the right leadership, Wildrose would be best positioned to bring our province back on the right track. It was amazing to me to see the members of this party ready and willing to put in the work. They weren't going anywhere. It was my great privilege to lead them into the Spring election and have Albertans elect 21 strong conservative MLAs. In September, Prasad Panda joined our incredible team. When they thought we were done we proved them wrong. We have a lot of work to do in the next three years and together I know we can do it. Today, I want to say thank you to Wildrose Members and Supporters.

    Telling the world that Alberta is no longer serious about returning to balanced budgets is bad news for taxpayers. It will hurt our credit rating and investment in our province. For every single family, it means higher taxes and fewer services in order to pay banks for the rising costs of interest payments. It’s why Wildrose is arguing for reasonable reductions in spending, without hurting front line services, over the next few years.

    Over the past year the Wildrose has been hard at work in the Legislature fighting for what Albertans have told us matters. We’ve put out 4 reports, we’ve opposed bad legislation, we’ve supported good legislation and we’ve brought forward common sense solutions to the problems that face Alberta. I’m proud of the work that our caucus has done. Imagine what we will do with ONE MORE MLA in the Legislature. Electing Devinder Toor in Calgary-Greenway will add a strong, conservative voice that cares about his constituents to the Wildrose Caucus. If you live in Greenway, please vote for Devinder tomorrow. If you know someone in Greenway, please give them a call and tell them why Devinder is the best choice. If you have some time tomorrow, please come out and lend a hand. [4655 54 Ave NE, Bay 603].

    Albertans are looking for leadership that spurs the Alberta economy and gets them back to work. Thousands of Albertans are worried about their dwindling or disappearing pay cheques and the government seems to be sitting on the sidelines. Last week, we announced the Wildrose Jobs Action Plan – a 12-point plan to get Albertans back to work. We know that Albertans aren’t looking for a handout, they are looking for a hand up. That’s what this plan delivers. Read my guest column in The Calgary Sun: wildro.se/gc

You won't be surprised to know that they refused to answer the question.
