PC Leadership Candidate In Lethbridge Ahead of Forum

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Alberta PC leadership hopeful Gary Mar is in Lethbridge this week ahead of a public forum in the city Thursday. He's spent several days touring small towns in Southern Alberta getting feedback from residents as part of a "listening tour." He spoke to Country 95 News, downplaying the label some have given him as a frontrunner.

"Whether you're a frontrunner or the last place runner in the race, you have to work hard every single day," said Mar. "And our strategy hasn't changed. You work hard every single day." Mar was an Alberta MLA for 14 years where he held cabinet portfolios in environment, education and health. He spent the last three years advocating for the province in Washington.

Mar addressed some of the recent controversy over his comments in favour of strengthening private health services in the province, saying his plan is to improve health care on the whole. "We're one of the highest spending provinces on health care and we're only getting middle of the road results," said Mar. "We need to strike the right balance between private and public sector health care. And the reason to do this is to make sure we have a better overall system." He and fellow candidates Doug Griffiths, Doug Horner, Ted Morton, Rick Orman and Alison Redford, will speak at a public leadership debate at the Lethbridge Lodge on Thursday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
