The Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta (often referred to colloquially as Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta) is a provincial centre-right party in the Canadian province of Alberta.

As of 2012, this is the third-longest unbroken run in government at the provincial level in Canadian history, behind their Ontario counterparts' 42-year run from 1943 to 1985, and the Nova Scotia Liberals' 43 years from 1882 to 1925.

There are a lot of liberals and Liberals masquerading around in the Progressive Conservative party, and thank God for that.
If the PC party were to espouse the true philosophy of right-wing conservatism, as they sometimes profess to do, it would no longer get elected in this province.
Think for example when Ralph Klein, who thought of himself as God's gift to Albertans, kept attempting to ...
Sagging in the polls and with several veterans headed for retirement, Alberta Liberals faced more grim news Monday when one of their most seasoned MLAs - Bridget Pastoor - jumped ship to the Tory government.
The surprise floor-crossing came just a few weeks after the two-term MLA for Leth-bridge-East was named party whip by new Liberal Leader Raj Sherman, who himself left the Tories last year.
