VIDEO: Premier Redford campaigns in St. Paul
Premier Alison Redford made a campaign stop in St. Paul on Friday night, flanked by local PC candidate and Transportation Minister, Ray Danyluk, Infrastructure Minster Jeff Johnson and incumbent candidate for Bonnyville – Cold Lake, Genia Leskiw.
Around 300 attended the premier's speech at the Ukrainian Cultural Centre, which featured beef on a bun and local country singer, Brett Kissel.
The PCs have put together a “plan for the future of this province that's fiscally responsible, that ensures surplus budgets and still provides services to Albertans and supports for communities,” Redford said in an interview with media.
“Those are progressive conservative values,” she said. “What we think is happening as a result of that is we're seeing a lot of people who previously may not have voted Progressive Conservative deciding to do that this time.”
The PC Party's vision for the province involves rural infrastructure, hospitals, public health care and education, “and ensuring we're continuing to build and allow rural communities to thrive,” Redford added.
“Agriculture policy matters, transportation matters, and those are Progressive Conservative policies.”
Redford said she would be working hard in Calgary and Edmonton on Saturday and plans to campaign in Calgary and the surrounding area, “talking to as many Albertans as we can about our hopes and our dreams,” on Sunday.
Redford recalled a statement she made earlier, where she said the election would be a “decisive campaign.”
“It was going to be a campaign that would allow us to find the future of the province. That has become very clearly the decision Albertans will make on Monday, is whether we want to move forward or whether we're going to go back, and I don't think Albertans want to go back.”
“We have brought forward a very solid campaign. We have been straight forward, we have not ever gone below what I would consider below the fence,” said Danyluk in his opening remarks. Danyluk thanked Redford coming to the region.
“This premier is a premier with experience,” he said. “There is no one I would rather be serving with than this premier.”
Albertans go to the polls on Monday.
