The Alberta Liberals held their Policy Convention & AGM yesterday. It was interesting to see all the different types of discussion going on – there were four main discussion sessions based on the Alberta Horizon’s documents that the Liberal Caucus put together – Social Development, Democratic Reform & Governance, Economic Sustainability, and Environmental Protection & Enhancement.
It’s really amazing to see how far the Alberta Liberals have come under Kevin Taft‘s leadership over the past two years.
Two years ago, the Alberta Liberals were a broken and battered party facing an election with a $1 million debt and only three incumbents. Now, the Alberta Liberals are organizing, the money is rolling in (after two years, their debt is now down to $600,000), they have 16 MLA’s, 21 candidates nominated, and a ton of people showing up to their policy conventions.
