Liberal Party platform
The Alberta Liberal 2015 platform is specifically designed for hard-working Alberta families. This visionary document has three key pillars: progressive issues, urban agenda and trusted leadership for all Albertans.
Problem: The gay-straight alliance issue has shown Albertans that Mr. Prentice dithers. Alberta Liberals had to drag the Prentice Conservatives over the line.
Solution: Albertans can count on Alberta Liberals to stand up on progressive issues:
- Equal pay for work of equal value
- Improving vaccination rates
- Teaching sexual consent in school
- Increasing legal aid funding
- Protection for paid farm workers
Quote: “Albertans can’t trust the Prentice Conservatives on progressive issues, ” says Liberal Leader David Swann. “Albertans can count on Liberals to be a strong voice on progressive issues.”
Problem: More than 80 per cent of Albertans live in urban areas, yet our municipal leaders do not have adequate funding to build our cities and towns.
Solution: Alberta Liberals recognize the unique needs of cities big and small and believe that thriving, properly financed municipalities benefit all Albertans:
- Historic five point municipal agenda
- Improve health care access
- Dignity for seniors
- Excellence in K-12 and post-secondary education
- Arts and culture investment
Quote: “Alberta Liberals propose the strongest municipal agenda in Alberta’s history, ” says David Swann. “Mr. Prentice seems quite happy to invest in golf courses while cities lack sustainable, predictable, and adequate funding.”
LEADERSHIP FOR ALL ALBERTANS
Problem: While the other parties are beholden to special interest groups – and have a hidden agenda – we represent all Albertans.
Solution: The Alberta Liberal Party proudly occupies the moderate and sensible centre:
Increase revenues $1, 173.2 million
- Better government: collect outstanding $1, 645.0 million
- Shrink deficit $1, 422.0 million
- Eliminate small business tax and health care levy
- Cut taxes on Albertans earning less than $50, 000
- Adjust taxes on large corporations by a modest 2 per cent
