100 years since most women were granted the right to vote. 100 years since women could fully participate in democracy, and share their voices and opinions by selecting those that represented them within government. Even more remarkable, one year after women were granted the right to vote, the first women in the entire British Commonwealth were elected here in Alberta.
I am proud to be descended from a remarkable woman who ran for elected office 1952. My grandmother, who's name remarkably was Alberta Clark, ran as a Liberal in Calgary in the 1952 provincial election. She used to tell me that's not as easy to be a Liberal in Alberta as you might think. I couldn't agree more Mr. Speaker.
In 100 years we have come so far, and yet we still have so far to go.

Last week the Alberta Party released our shadow budget, which is our second such document. We believe as an opposition party we have two choices; we can oppose everything the government does or we can propose ideas and tell Albertans how we would address the challenges facing our province.

EDMONTON, AB - April 15, 2016 - There is a better way to balance the budget that doesn’t burden future generations with unsustainable debt loads while still investing in infrastructure and preserving front-line services, says Alberta Party leader Greg Clark.
The detailed Alberta Party shadow budget can be found here.
"Alberta’s budget crisis means the government needs to make responsible choices," said Clark. “Unfortunately the NDP took the easy way out by putting off hard decisions into the future, and we know Wildrose would make major cuts that would impact front-line public services.
“I think there’s a better way.”
