If you live in Alberta and you're looking for information on how to support efforts to create a united, principled and competent alternative to the NDP government, you've come to the right place.

There are a number of ways you can get involved:

1) Manning Centre - The Manning Centre has undertaken a number of initiatives to support a united party in Alberta and to hold the NDP government to account:

  • Voting record research - In October, we released analysis on the voting records of the Wildrose and PCs since the 2015 election. Despite their past differences, we discovered the parties have been voting together 90% of the time. Most importantly, they've been voting for each other's proposed amendments almost every single time. To see the research - click here
  • Legal research - We recently commissioned a legal opinion from the law firm Masuch Albert LLP on issues related to the Wildrose and PCs coming together. To read the research - click here. If you want to read Preston Manning's summary of the material - click here
  • Videos - We've released a number of videos to educate people about poorly thought out decisions by the Notley government. Visit the video section of our Facebook page to see them - click here 
  • Columns - Visit the columns section of our website to see a list of columns we've had published in major newspapers on the NDP government's activities - click here
  • Spread the word! You can support this work by spreading our material among your contacts or by making a donation (click here)!

2) Alberta Can't Wait - The Manning Centre is a partner organization of Alberta Can't Wait, a grassroots organization that is working to bring Wildrose supporters and grassroots Progressive Conservatives together. The organization has several chapters throughtout the province. To learn more about their activities, or to get involved - click here

3) Progressive Conservative Party - It is important to contact activists and those involved in the Progressive Conservative Party and respectfully articulate your support for a united party. Keep in mind, many of the current players have been involved for many years and have had some very divisive interactions with the Wildrose in the past. The local executive of the PC Party, leadership candidates (Kenney, Starke and Khan), elected Progressive Conservative MLAs and the PC's provincial executive need to hear that there's too much at stake to be concerned with past differences between the parties. It's time to work towards creating a united, principled and competent alternative to the current government. 

4) Wildrose Party - It is important to contact activists and those involved in the Wildrose Party and respectfully articulate your support for a united party. Keep in mind, many of the current players have been involved for many years and have had some very divisive interactions with the Progressive Conservative Party in the past. The local executive of the Wildrose, elected Wildrose MLAs, leader Brian Jean and the Wildrose's provincial executive need to hear that there's too much at stake to be concerned with past differences between the parties. It's time to work towards creating a united, principled and competent alternative to the current government.

Just as the former Reform Party and Progressive Conservative Party of Canada could put aside their differences and built a new federal party based on common ground ideas, so too can Progressive Conservatives and Wildrose supporters in Alberta.
