Hear From Innisfail-Sylvan Lake MLA Following Opening Week Legislature's Fall Sitting

With the fall session of the Alberta Legislature underway, the new United Conservative Party continues to set goals and priorities. Innisfail-Sylvan Lake MLA Don MacIntyre says the UCP membership exceeds 115-thousand people, which is great representation from across the province.

With one week down in the legislature, the United Conservative Party continues to hold the government to account, according to Innisfail-Sylvan Lake MLA Don MacIntyre. 
Jason Kenney, the former federal conservative cabinet minister, won the leadership of the UCP on the first ballot with 61 per cent of the vote at the end of October.
MacIntyre says it was a decisive victory.
MacIntyre notes he was pleasantly surprised to see Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre MLA Jason Nixon tabbed to lead UCP caucus activities while the party's newly elected leader Jason Kenney awaits his byelection in Calgary.
He adds, Jason Kenney did not make a lot of changes to the the MLA critic roles.
MacIntyre says the short term goals for the UCP are to start working together as a team.

He adds the mid-range goal is to get the member pass policies through the UCP's annual general meeting (AGM), which is scheduled for the first part of May in Red Deer.
