NDP Leader Brian Mason Talks 2013 And What Is To Come For The Party

 
 

Lethbridge: NDP Leader Brian Mason is reflecting on the past year and looking forward into 2014.



The leader argues after promises were made to increase funding for post-secondary education and seniors care, the province ended up running a deficit. The NDP leader adds an attack on provincial pension and AUPE increased Albertans distrust.



"The government has created a climate of distrust and in some cases fear. I think that was completely unnecessary. That was entirely something decided by the premier and the government and I think they're going to have to live with the consequences." said Mason.



Mason says the NDP was happy with changes made to a municipal government bill that would have given the cabinet real control over all planning in the province. He adds they were also successful in forcing the government to step back from some of the privatization of home-care services.



"We're certainly starting to get ready for the election in 2016. Lethbridge was of near success for us and we're going to be continuing to concentrate on Lethbridge as a potential seat for the NDP in the next election." said about NDP plan in the New Year.
