Earlier today, Alberta NDP Premier Rachel Notley called the Alberta election for Tuesday, April 16, 2019 - 27 days from now.
It's finally time for Albertans to choose their Alberta, and decide what's really important to them and their families.
You know the record of the Rachel Notley NDP, and the devastating impact they've had on Alberta's economy.
They've forced thousands of businesses to close their doors by hiking the minimum wage during one of Alberta's worst economic downturns and by changing labour laws to make doing business in Alberta a lot more expensive.
They've made life more expensive for families, seniors, and not for profit groups through their multi-billion dollar carbon tax, which hasn't reduced Alberta's carbon emissions by one puff of hot air.
They've driven investment out of our province by scaring away investors, layering on excessive red tape and regulation, and hiking business taxes.
They've made government bigger and more expensive, putting their union friends and allies ahead of the needs of hard-working Albertans.
They've mismanaged Alberta's pipeline projects by partnering with the anti-energy Trudeau Liberals and being too timid to strongly stand up for Alberta interests in Ottawa.
They've appointed anti-oil zealots to groups supposedly tasked with promoting Alberta's energy sector over and over again.
They've put their own strident ideology ahead of the wisdom and common sense of everyday Albertans who have suffered as a result of the NDP's commitment to special interests.
They've spent millions of taxpayer dollars on a government advertising campaign on the eve of an election that was nothing but an NDP campaign in disguise.
And they've led a government filled with unremarkable MLAs and Cabinet Ministers who nobody expected would ever hold the important positions they ended up in after accidentally winning the 2015 campaign.
The alternative is the United Conservative Party, which has put forward a series of bold policies that will help kickstart the Alberta economy and boost job creation.
They've committed to cut business taxes to create jobs and attract new investment to Alberta.
They've committed to cut red tape to make it easier to start and grow businesses in our province.
They've committed to repealing the multi-billion dollar carbon tax that has hurt families and businesses.
They've committed to fighting for Alberta's interests in Ottawa and being real champions for our province.
And they've made it clear that under a new UCP government, Alberta will be open for business.
This is the choice that Albertans will face in 28 days.
Do we want to be the best province in Canada in which to start and grow a business, and raise a family?
Or do we want Alberta's best days to be behind it, and to sink ever deeper into a sea of debt that will burden our children and grandchildren?
It's our province. It's our decision. And it's time for Albertans to choose.
Alberta Can't Wait
