After months of discussion and deliberation on the best way forward for Alberta, the entire Board of the People’s Party of Alberta resigned today to join and support the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta (WIPA).
To present a united front and concentrate attention and resources on the goals of generating greater independence, grassroots representation and demanding a fair deal for Alberta, Board members of the People’s Party of Alberta and Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta have decided it makes the most sense to work cooperatively.The two parties are philosophically very well aligned, and moving forward together will ultimately be the best option for Albertans.
Federal People’s Party of Canada candidates Kelly Lorencz, Paul Mitchell and Nadine Wellwood, who all sat on the Board of the PPA, hope that both PPA members and Albertans who supported the PPC federally will take a good look at WIPA and consider supporting it as the best provincial option for the values and principles of individual freedom, personal responsibility, fairness and respect, as well as to stand up and fight without compromise for the interests of Albertans.
“It is an exciting time in the history of Alberta, and there’s no doubt that Albertans need to stand united and fight for the values that are most important to them,”said Norm Thiesen, Former President of the PPA. “We believe by combining our efforts to create a stronger and freer Alberta proves to the public that this is not about the typical politics of egos and posturing, but is a sincere gesture to do what is right for Alberta”.
WIPA President Rick Northy and Interim Leader Paul Hinman are excited to welcome Kelly, Paul and Nadine to the Wildrose Independence Party board. Together we invite all those who voted and supported the PPC in the last federal election to visit our website, www.wildrose.party, to join with the former PPA board and buy a membership.
Together we are stronger, together we offer a true alternative to the Kenney government.
