Even before my formal involvement in the Green Party of Alberta, dare I say all my life, I have always held an immense respect for nature. I say this of course while being very honest about the fact that I am not a vegetarian, nor have I renounced all goods and services that involve using resources found in the natural world. In fact I can say that maintaining a respect for nature is much more profound than exclusively talking about resource management and exchange. Sometimes
I believe that the next election in Alberta, and in fact, all elections yet to come, are going to be oriented by the desire for more localized governments. Alberta has certainly been very interesting in the last few years from a political point of view. In 2015 Albertan's exercised their right to choose their future by dismissing the longstanding Conservative regime from power, and ushering in the NDP to take the mantle.

No matter the place or time on the globe, the economy will always find its way into being a topic of debate. In Alberta this is especially true as we have always been looked upon as a leader of a strong economy in the developed world. One of the most important features of any leader is to be dynamic.

I am proud to be part of the Green Party of Alberta. We have a dynamic brand name that means something to a lot of people. Our party can also boast a roster of academics, professionals, and genuine people that are so sincere in the ways they want to solve the issues Alberta faces. What we unfortunately have not been doing is presenting these people to the outside world. There is no real fault for this, perhaps being exposed to something over a long period of time does nullifi
What likely is the most attractive feature of the Green Party is that it is not blindly slave to following the dogma of traditional political mindsets. The Green Party, although stigmatized to being a one issue Party, is far more complex than that. The Green Party is home to not any one kind of demographic, but rather appeals to many, coming from across the traditional political spectrum. The membership of the Green Party of Alberta is quite reflective of that. It is likely t
