This weekend, Alberta’s United Conservative Party will host its annual general meeting and vote on 20 policy decisions, including those aimed at challenging anti-racist education initiatives and a review of utility transfer fees.
It’s the first party convention for Danielle Smith to be prime minister. According to the KKE, the constituency assemblies and the party’s Committee on Policy and Governance have drawn up the decisions due to be heard on Saturday.
After drafting, each policy idea was considered by individual members using the party’s online rating tool.
“Thousands of members participated and told us what they liked and what they didn’t like,” Joe Frisnahan, vice president of policy and governance at UCP, said in the policy handbook.
“The policy decisions you see come straight from that list of priorities,” Friesnahan added.
The possible passage of these resolutions by party members present at the Ordinary General Assembly does not guarantee that they will become proposals to be discussed in the legislature.
Here is a little policy decisions And what do you want to know about him.
The Edmonton-West Hendaye Constituency Assembly suggests that UCP students “stop the practice” to teach them that they are privileged on the basis of their “racial heritage”.
The resolution adds that there should be no differential treatment of students due to ethnic heritage and aims to prohibit the teaching of several concepts, “whether they are presented under the heading of so-called critical race theory, intersectionality, anti-racism, diversity and inclusion, or any other name.”
Concepts should not imply that “the whole of society is a racial system” or that segments of the population “bear historical guilt because of said ethnic heritage”.
The rationale refers to Incident last year when Edmonton Public School management reported an Instagram account “full of hate” The Scona White Student Alliance called the police.
One post from that account read in part that “white lives matter,” while another also said that “society is dominated by victimhood and anti-white racism.”
At the time, the school’s principal denounced the account and said there is zero tolerance for posts that make students “feel unsafe” or “unwelcome” at school.
The logic of the decision adds: “The public education system should not be ideological in perspective or focused on promoting a political message to vulnerable students.”
“The goals of our education system should focus on teaching reading, writing and arithmetic, and be based on skills and knowledge.”
Expand merchandise exports
Resolution 1 proposes the establishment of the Transportation Facility Corridor from Alberta to Port Churchill, Mann, on the shores of Hudson Bay to facilitate the shipping of oil and gas.
The policy proposal, drafted by the Edmonton Center District, says the government will reach out to Saskatchewan and Manitoba to secure a “great nation-building project”.
The rationale reads: “Modern seafaring technology allows ships to cross (sic) Hudson Bay in the first year of ice.”
Alberta must do its part to help European countries end their dependence on Russian oil and gas.
protect the work spirit
The second resolution, proposed by the Cardston Sexica Constituency Assembly, would call for the county to protect agribusiness from “harmful” federal regulations.
“Alberta is a global leader in agribusiness and efficient agricultural practices,” says Logic. “The federal government threatens the capacity of agribusiness by reducing fertilizer and other modern agricultural practices under the pseudonym of climate change.”
She argues that modern agricultural practices have evolved to balance production and safety, and that any harmful changes threaten the global food supply.
Electricity fees and charges
Another resolution calls for the UCP to reform the electricity pricing system to reduce transmission and distribution costs.
“We should focus on ensuring that the new generation is reliable and affordable for Albertans,” Logic says.
“The costs of moving the new generation to the distribution system should be as limited as possible.”
The Vermillion-Lloydminster-Wainwright Constituency Assembly drafted the policy proposal.
The Calgary Fish Creek Constituency Assembly has drafted a resolution calling for increased preventive health care funding and the removal of barriers to care by reducing the number of health service managers in Alberta.
According to the decision, AHS’s sunshine list that generates more than $140,000 a year should be reduced from more than 900 to about 200.
“Alberta has the most expensive/least efficient system in Canada, which makes us one of the worst overall healthcare systems in the developed world,” Logic said, adding that managers and bureaucrats add “a little” to productivity.
A different resolution, issued by the St. Albert Circuit Assembly, calls for the county to ensure that healthcare practitioner licenses and credentials are reviewed “easily and efficiently” within a “specified period of time.”
The rationale is that this should help speed up the ability of newcomers to practice medicine in Alberta.
