I hope so and it would be about time In an interview with Sun Media, Preston Manning seems to think so.
CALGARY - The Alberta Tories' days could be numbered if a new leader doesn't frankly address major weaknesses and reinvigorate the party, says an Alberta conservative icon.
Former Reform Party leader Preston Manning told QMI Agency on Wednesday he's not convinced any of the six candidates vying for Alberta's top job are going to shake things up.
"I'm concerned that none of the candidates, to the extent that I would like to see, are addressing the greatest threat to the governing party, which is its own long time in office and its weakness in a number of important areas to Albertans," said Manning.
. The PC's are old tired, out of good original ideas and they've become complacent and arrogant. They just celebrated their 40th anniversary in power. With the leadership vote on Saturday, I'm not too impressed with any of the candidates. None of them seem to want to bring real change to the party or the province. Time to turf them out next election and bring in real change and invigoration to Alberta.
Another thing, the Alberta Progressive Conservative party should drop the Conservative out of their title because there's nothing conservative about them at all. They have done nothing conservative in recent years. They've moved further and further to the left.
The Wildrose party is the way to go in my opinion. They have new fresh ideas and a young energetic charismatic leader in Danielle Smith.and Wildrose is the ONLY conservative party in Alberta.
Come next election that could come as early as next spring, small c conservatives should not be fooled. PC's will not give you a conservative government. They believe in big government. Wildrose will be your only choice if you want a truly small conservative government.
