The Alberta Party Caucus believes in working together with government where we can, and offering alternatives where we differ. The job of opposition is not simply to oppose, but to propose better ideas.

We ask ourselves: What problem are we trying to solve, and how does this make life better for Albertans?

We believe in data-driven decision making, and listening to good ideas regardless of where or who they come from.

We believe that it is possible to care about people, the environment and the economy, to have balanced budgets and a world-class quality of life.

We believe in responsible and accountable government spending.

We believe that our friends and neighbours have the right to chart their own destiny, and no matter who they were born to be, or who they choose to be, they have the right to be treated with dignity, respect and equality.

It is time to think differently. To ask difficult questions and not be afraid of the answers.
