27 July 2017 – Edmonton, AB — Through a letter to the editor of the Edmonton Journal, Fair Vote Edmonton released a statement on the recently approved merger between the Progressive Conservatives and the Wildrose. The merger of political parties is a symptom and not the solution to problems related to fair representation in the legislature. Only electoral reform and a proportional voting system preserves choices for Albertans and produces fair, democratic results.

You can read the letter on the Edmonton Journal.
