The NDP’s Rachel Notley emerged tonight as the clear winner of the Alberta Leadership Debate. The hour-and-a-half long debate saw Notley outline her vision of a province where health care and education are protected by asking corporations to pay their fair share.
“It was obvious from the debate that Jim Prentice does not share the priorities of the people of this province,” said Notley. “He continues to not take responsibility for the mess that his party has put us in over the past 44 years. Albertans simply aren’t buying what he’s selling.”
Prentice and Notley went head to head, reinforcing that there is a clear choice in this campaign. Brian Jean was clear that he intends to continue Prentice’s plan of giving billions away in corporate tax breaks.
“We are offering a clear alternative for Albertans,” said Notley. “We are offering change and the knowledge that we can build a better future for our province.”
