Illegal Immigration

"With the flood of economic illegal refugees flooding our borders, what is your stance on this and how would you deal with it if it happens in Alberta?" I brought in a number of reforms when I was Canada's longest serving Minister of Immigration. Many of them were designed precisely...

Military History

So you've probably heard that the NDP is rewriting Alberta's school curriculum in secret. That's right, they refused to release the names of anybody being consulted but we do know some things because there's been a leak of the draft social studies curriculum outline. You can see it for yourself...

No Sales Tax

"What's your stance on PST?" If you ever hear a politician saying they're open to a particular tax, they're for it. Thankfully, back in the mid-1990's, when I was head of the Taxpayers Federation, I successfully lobbied the Klein Government to adopt something called the Taxpayer Protection Act, which requires...

Photo Radar

"I received a $175 photo radar ticket when I was on my way to volunteer for the unity vote. Are you in support of getting rid of these cash cows?" I'm the first person who started raising this whole issue of photo radar last fall. Then the NDP said they...

Political Correctness

Some of these people I think are just losing their minds. If any of you folks are on Twitter or social media, you will have seen one the most viral meme, that is to say the most commonly posted image on Twitter, is from a stock photo of a girlfriend...

"Do you support recall legislation?" Yes, I personally do. Although, it will be up to the members of the new party as to whether it becomes a policy of the United Conservatives. It has been a Wildrose policy, but not a PC policy. I've been fighting for recall in Alberta...

Referendums and Property Rights

"Where do you stand on referendums and property rights?" First of all, I for one, personally, am open to more use of direct democracy. I don't think we should be afraid of it. We've used referendums in Alberta in the past on issues like daylight savings time. Maybe we should...

Repeal the Carbon Tax

One of the reasons we need to unite Alberta and defeat the NDP is so that we can repeal their multi-billion dollar, job-killing carbon tax. The NDP didn't even mention this, the largest tax increase in Alberta history, during the last election, and it's all about economic pain and no...

School Choice

We Albertans believe in freedom, and one of the ways we show it is by giving moms and dads the freedom to choose the best kind of education for their kids. We call it school choice. It's a successful tradition where we honor the diversity of kids. They're not all...

Small Business

Entrepreneurs and small business people are the unsung heroes of our economy. These are people who don't go out and protest when they're going through difficulty. They don't expect the business next door to bail them out. They are creative people with great hearts, who often their life savings at...
