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."
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."
