province, and there’s one thing I’ve learned from this campaign: Albertans are
looking for change. Change they can trust.”
Jean reiterated Wildrose’s balanced and measured plan to not raise taxes, promote
jobs and investment in Alberta, and to shrink the size of government. This includes
a commitment to bring in total operational savings of $1.1 billion, $1.6 billion, and $2.2
billion over the next 3 years.
With PCs dedicated only to holding on to power and propping up a dangerous agenda of
higher taxes, Jean said Wildrose is the only party that can protect Alberta from
risky NDP-PC economic ideas.
“The PCs have broken your trust too many times. Wildrose will work hard to earn and
keep it. The NDP can’t be trusted to protect jobs. Wildrose will fight for every
single one,” Jean said. “A Wildrose vote is a vote for what matters to you.”
