I chose this wonderful graphic to show the diversity of culture, gender and politics of the people here in Alberta. These diverse voices, all striving to live a good life in an amazingly blessed part of the world. As the leader of this party I will make sure to include this mosaic in all our policies and governance.
Respect for diversity is also one of our six core tenets and I would argue that it is our most important one. This gives our party a distinct advantage over our political neighbors because this creates inclusivity rather than exclusivity.
The previous provincial, as well as federal election, were decided by voting against rather than voting for. I intend to lead our party so that we are a welcoming home for voters. I will reach across to our neighbors to find common ground and common good in our decisions and practices.
