Together we’ll shape the future of Alberta

I’m in favour of hearing all positions and policies.

Thanksgiving 2020

In the past few weeks, I’ve been reflecting on the impact COVID-19 has had on my life and looked to where things have gotten better. This year at Thanksgiving I am thankful for so much.

We need courage from the Government to own their decisions – not excuses and blame-shifting – if we find ourselves amidst a second wave of COVID-19 in Alberta.
