MLA Jason Nixon Recaps UCP AGM & Founding Convention

The MLA for Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre believes it is pretty clear conservatives are united in the province and they are excited about what is to come over the next year. Following the United Conservative Party's annual general meeting and founding convention in Red Deer, Jason Nixon says their membership confirmed at the AGM that they will repeal the carbon tax and Bill 6.

The United Conservative Party's founding convention and annual general meeting was held in May and it was the largest political AGM in history of the province.
That is according to the Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre MLA. Jason Nixon says there were well over 2,600 people registered and around 3,000 who attended the night of the leadership speech.

Nixon says the next step is to take the policies that were passed to platform committees which are made up of MLA's, stakeholders from the public and experts.


Meanwhile, he was also excited to see Devin Dreeshen win the UCP nomination for the Innisfail-Sylvan Lake constituency.
Nixon says the committees will begin to put together a platform based on their policies which will be approved by Jason Kenney and will also be the UCP's election campaign platform for 2019.
