UCP hold annual general meeting near Edmonton

The Alberta United Conservative Party held their annual general meeting over the weekend in Enoch, located just outside of Edmonton. During keynote speech, Alberta Premier Danielle Smith took aim at Rachel Notley for her support of increases to the federal carbon tax, and Alberta Health Services for the shortage of health-care providers.

Following her speech, Smith spoke to the media, where she delivered yet another apology. This time, it was to those who she had previously called ’the most discriminated group’ she had ever witnessed in her lifetime. But according to political blogger Vince Byfield, Smith needs to do more than apologize to the unvaxxed. He says she needs to repair the division that was created due to provincial health mandates.

The UCP is gearing up for a provincial election in the spring of 2023. According to Deputy Premier and Lethbridge-East MLA Nathan Neudorf, unity within the UCP is key to keeping the Notley NDP out of government. The next provincial election is May 29, 2023. Smith says she will not call an election earlier than the prescribed date.
