Alberta Wildrose and Progressive Conservatives Have a Tentative Deal

Jason Kenny, Leader of the Alberta Progressive Conservatives and Brian Jean Leader of the Wildrose Party announced yesterday a tentative deal to merge the two parties into one.  The name of the new party would be the United Conservatives.

Although it’s a positive move in Alberta politics, there is still plenty that needs to be done before we can be breath a sigh of relief.  The deal still has to be ratified by members of both parties with at least 75% approval.  That vote will take place in July.  They’ll need to establish an executive and constituency boards. Next  a leader will have to be chosen. The leader of the new party will chosen at a convention in October.  Then they come up with platform and find candidates all in time for the next election in 2019.  So there is still a lot of sausage that needs to be made.

I for one am pleased by this effort by Jason Kenny, Brian Jean and the committee who came up with this tentative deal.  It’s a good first step into getting rid of the destructive Rachel Notley and her NDP wrecking crew.  All conservative minded individuals should get on board and support this because without a united conservative party, the NDP will most likely get another term.  Think about that!

I am a conservative who leans libertarian. I rely on God and common sense to guide me through life. I love music, coffee and the outdoors.
