Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Alberta has a rich and diverse history. Together we have experienced prosperity and hardship, and through both we remain caring, innovative, and hardworking people seeking opportunity in striving to fulfill our potential. We share the vision of making that dream a reality for each and every Albertan.
Today the PC caucus kicked off a real conversation with Albertans by launching Engage. We are seeking frank and open feedback from Albertans. For us Progressive Conservatives this means going back to our roots. Simply telling people what we think is not consultation. What Engage does is that it goes to the next step. We are continuing the process of reaching out, listening, and learning. The web page is abpcmla.ca/engage. Our caucus does not have all the answers; with Engage we are encouraging and welcoming all feedback. We will share the feedback in the hope that hearing from Albertans concerned about their province will inspire this government to change course.
Whether we sit on the government or opposition benches, the priority needs to be getting Alberta back to work. The need to achieve good government does not stop regardless of who is sitting in the Premier’s chair. Our PC caucus will draw on our experience in government and from the many wins and losses we have experienced over the years. As Albertans we want to see this province at its best, and we have many ideas that we are keen to share. We also know that we don’t have all the answers, but we do know and we’re confident that in partnership with other Albertans and those people who work for Albertans, we can move forward in a positive and constructive way.
We invite all of Alberta to join our PC caucus in recommending positive changes to the current government. Won’t you engage us in this important conversation?
On April 4, 2016, Ric McIver launched a new plan to engage with Albertans:
