ENG: The Alberta New Democratic Party or Alberta NDP is a social-democratic political party in Alberta, Canada, which was originally founded as the Alberta section of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. From the mid-1980s to 2004, the party abbreviated its name as the "New Democrats" (ND). In the 2012 provincial election the NDP picked up two new seats in Edmonton, regaining their previous 4 seat total. Both Rachel Notley and Brian Mason safely held onto their seats while David Eggen was re-elected as the member for Edmonton-Calder. Newcomer Deron Bilous was also elected in Edmonton-Beverly-Clareview, the seat formerly held by Martin. In many other ridings the party also managed to win more votes than they had been able to attain previously. Leader: Brian Mason President: ...

Alberta NDP would axe carbon capture projects

Alberta's NDP says it's time to bury $2 billion in carbon capture and storage tests and reallocate the remaining funds to projects that matter. Party leader Brian Mason says he would use the unspent $400 million on initiatives such as interest-free loans for green home retrofits. Tory Leader Alison Redford has said she doesn't plan on pursuing carbon capture and storage once current test projects are complete. Other NDP environmental promises in the runup to the April 23 election include setting hard deadlines for cleaning up oilsands tailings ponds and making oil companies pay the ...

Alberta New Democrats release health-care report after public hearings

CALGARY — The Alberta NDP released a new health care reportonthe 1st Februaryweekend. The report, called "What People Want," is the result of public hearings the NDP held in seven communities across the province last fall. The 37-page report touches on two main themes the NDP says Albertans feel are crippling the health care system: a shortage of long-term care beds and the effects of that shortage such as increased wait times. The report also includes 37 recommendations. It will be handed out to every MLA just ahead of the legislature reconvening this week. NDP Leader Brian Mason ...

Alberta’s NDP and Wildrose Alliance want to ask more questions

EDMONTON- Alberta's opposition parties joined Wednesday to argue against what they say is an unfair allotment of time in question period. Earlier this week, Speaker Ken Kowalski assigned the number of questions each political party can expect to ask during daily question period. Under the terms of the letter, the NDP and Wildrose Alliance would both get two questions. But their second questions come as either the 17th or 18th questions of the day. According to the Wildrose, those questions get asked less than 63 per cent of the time because of time constraints. While the minutiae of ...

The PCs are hiding from their healthcare record
EDMONTON– New Democrat Leader Rachel Notley called on the PCs today, to stop hiding from their record on healthcare and release overdue AHS Performance Measures reports. “Right now, patients are suffering from this government’s neglect. People are waiting hours for emergency care, they are being put into acute care beds when they should be in long term care and our doctors and nurses are stretched to their limits trying to keep up with a system running over-capacity,” said Notley. Alberta Health Services had been releasing quarterly performance reports on health targets since 2009, but stopped releasing data after the 2013-2014 report came out, late, in October 2014.  Since then, three quarters have passed with no update. “We know our healthcare system is in crisis and this government refuses to take responsibility for its neglect of the healthcare system and instead the PCs are hiding the data so that Albertans can’t know how bad it
Students, teachers and support staff suffer as PCs refuse to fund public education
EDMONTON – New Democrat Education critic, Deron Bilous called on the PCs today to take responsibility for chronically underfunding education in Alberta. “Our children deserve high quality education, they deserve one-on-one time and they deserve the chance to build nurturing relationships with the teachers and staff they are spending their time with. By neglecting our public education system through chronic underfunding, this PC government is robbing our kids of those opportunities,” said Bilous. Bilous’ comments come on the heels of a Public Interest Alberta report that surveyed parents, students, teachers and staff in cities and towns across the province. The report confirms what Bilous and the NDP have been saying in the Legislature for years. “Although these statistics are concerning, they’re not surprising. We have known for years that growing class sizes, inadequate classroom space and a lack of resources means our kids are not getti
More PC cuts put children’s lives at risk
EDMONTON – New Democrat MLA David Eggen called on the government today to reverse budget cuts to the office of the Child and Youth Advocate.   “No one wants to see another innocent child die in care, especially when these tragic deaths could be prevented. We need to provide the Child and Youth Advocate the resources he needs to do his job so that we can protect Alberta’s most vulnerable children,” said Eggen.   In December, the PC dominated Legislative Offices Committee voted to cut the budgets of the Ethics Commissioner, Child and Youth Advocate, Privacy Commissioner, Ombudsmen, Public Interest Commissioner and Auditor General by 2%, which translates into hundreds of thousands of dollars of funding for the already under-resourced offices.   Today, the committee heard concerns voiced in a letter from the office of the Child and Youth Advocate. Del Graff says his office will not be able to complete its mandated responsibilities with the propo
PCs failure to provide mental healthcare for PDD recipients is endangering lives
EDMONTON – NDP Leader Rachel Notley was joined by LoSeCa Foundation CEO, Marie Renaud today to release a letter detailing the PCs failure to provide safe environments and supports for PDD recipients with complex needs.   The letter details the dangerous history of one of LoSeCa’s clients, a man who has assaulted staff as well as his peers, tried to hurt himself and made numerous death threats. It also details LoSeCa’s ongoing struggle to support him without access to the mental health care he needs.   “We have seen the tragic consequences of allowing dangerous individuals to continue to live and work in communities without the proper treatment or supports. Innocent lives have been lost because this government refuses to make this vital mental health care a priority,” said Notley.   The man described in the letter was admitted to Grey Nuns Hospital in August 2014 and remains there, as there is no secure place for him to live and receive
