Today, the Wildrose party released a survey for its membership about charting their course forward. In recent weeks, Wildrose has firmly opened up the door to conservative unity and we are grateful to our friend Brian Jean.
Brian has said that Wildrose members will be given the final say on the future of the party.
This seems to be the first step in that process. The survey asks questions about the name a new party should take, members’ preferences for delegated conventions versus membership-wide votes, thresholds for changing party policy, and the structure a new party should take.
If you are a Wildrose member, we suggest you take the survey at http://www.wildrose.ca/consultation_survey
On the question of the “Wildrose and PC parties path forward,” we encourage supporters of Alberta Can’t Wait to vote for party unity as opposed to a non-compete plan. Such a confusing arrangement has never been successfully implemented in Canada, and complicated arrangements may lead to the backroom wheeling and dealing Albertans naturally abhor.
If, on the other hand, you aren’t a Wildrose member, we encourage you to buy a membership. It’s only $10.00, and over the coming year you’ll be able to play a big role in shaping the direction of the conservative movement in Alberta. Holding membership in the PC party does not render you ineligible to hold membership in the Wildrose, nor vice versa.
Our movement continues to grow, and the establishment of both parties is taking note. We’re tremendously thankful for all your support.
