Alberta Party Leader Tours Town of Olds

Alberta Party Leader Stephen Mandel says they are getting out into rural Alberta as they prepare for the 2019 election.

The leader of the Alberta Party says rural Alberta is one of the economic foundations for the province.
 
Stephen Mandel was in Olds on Friday, April 13th. He went on a tour, met with town council and he also attended Olds College's Homestead Feast.
 
Mandel also toured Olds College and calls it one of the most outstanding educational facilities in Alberta.
 
 
 
 
As for the economic development Olds has cultivated through the cannabis market with Sundial Growers and Olds SoftGels, Mandel says anytime markets and opportunities open up for communities like Olds it creates positive investments for rural Alberta.
 
 
 
 
When it comes to cannabis regulations, Mandel says there are a lot of things that need to happen first before recreational use is legalized. He believes there is a real challenge ahead.
 
 
 
 
Meanwhile, he says the Alberta Party is talking to a variety of people and hopes to announce someone relatively soon for their nomination in the Innisfail-Sylvan Lake byelection.
