Ken­ney cam­paigns for po­lit­i­cal unity

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS -

About 40 peo­ple came out to hear Al­berta Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tive (PC) leader Ja­son Ken­ney on his cam­paign for wu­nity of the Wil­drose and PC Party.

Ken­ney hosted the meet­ing at the Canalta Juras­sic Ho­tel Wednes­day evening, July 12. It was also the fi­nal day for Al­ber­tans to join the PC party to vote in the ref­er­en­dum on unity July 22 and Ken­ney told the Mail there is strong mo­men­tum lead­ing up to the de­ci­sion day.

“The last I heard we have sold over 2,000 to­day. This is un­prece­dented,” he said. “We will have sold in the last week over 7,000 mem­ber­ships.”

The ul­ti­mate goal for unity is to de­feat the Al­berta NDP Party, who, ac­cord­ing to Ken­ney, is chas­ing away in­vest­ment, but also chang­ing the po­lit­i­cal cul­ture of the prov­ince partly through the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem.

“If they can change the po­lit­i­cal cul­ture of the prov­ince that has been the beat­ing heart of con­ser­va­tive val­ues; If they can still that beat­ing heart then they can change Canada for­ever. This is a fight not just for Al­berta, but of na­tional con­se­quence.”

He feels there is good mo­men­tum for a uni­fied party that can make a change.

“We are about to see a small po­lit­i­cal earth­quake that will shake the NDP out of of­fice,” he said.

Right wing po­lit­i­cal leader Ja­son Ken­ney speaks to ap­prox­i­mately 40 peo­ple about his cam­paign for Wil­drose and PC unity.
