24 April 2018 — EDMONTON, AB
Fair Vote Edmonton is excited to announce that the Alberta Liberal Party approved policy resolution Alberta Needs A Fair and Proportional Voting System at its Policy Convention on 7 April 2018 in Calgary. The resolution reads:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Alberta Liberal Party supports offering each municipal jurisdiction in Alberta, by choice, the implementation of a form of Proportional Representation for municipal elections; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Alberta Liberal Party supports a voting system of a form of Proportional Representation for provincial elections;
and BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Alberta Liberal Party encourages the Government of Alberta and municipal governments to begin educating Albertans on Proportional Representation.
Sincere thanks to Fair Vote Edmonton board member I. Hunter for taking part in the ALP Democracy Policy Committee. We will continue to press proportional representation with other Alberta political parties and make it an election issue in 2019.
