The option of having to vote for an Alberta Senate candidate will be on the ballot next Monday for the upcoming municipal election. Senate candidates are voted in, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that these candidates will be chosen by Ottawa. The Trudeau Liberals have the final say in the matter right now. Pam Davidson is running for the Conservative Party of Canada for the Alberta Senate seat. She has a small business on her family farm, and is an advocate for freedom of speech. She also strongly advocates for religious liberty, property rights, and responsible spending. She says if elected and appointed, she would push hard for a stronger voice for Alberta agriculture at the federal level.
“There’s been lots of different agriculture issues throughout the province. I know down south they would like bring in manufacturing for beets. Thats one thing that’s important to them in central Alberta here. A little bit further north they want to bring in more manufacturing that we will keep in Alberta for producing our own food. Such as strawberries, that’s one big thing that I talked to people about. I think our whole province really needs to concentrate on keeping manufacturing in Alberta, and creating those jobs for Albertans.”
The issue of broadband has been an important topic as of late. Davidson says if she’s elected, she would also push for bringing broadband to smaller communities and rural Alberta.
Davidson states that over the past few years, the Trudeau Liberals have made life more difficult for Albertans through what she says are anti-energy policies.
