2022 UCP Leadership Vote

For those of us interested in education, the United Conservative Party’s (UCP) leadership race is the most important event of the decade. The winner will be Premier – and stands a better than average chance of remaining Premier for the rest of the decade. That leader can defend parental rights – if Albertans make it clear that they are important.

Parents for Choice in Education (PCE) hosted an online forum on August 4th, 2022, where the candidates were asked four questions we had sent them in advance and four questions from our supporters.
