Wildrose MLA Derek Fildebrandt was in his riding of Strathmore-Brooks to make an announcement on conservative unity last night.
The finance critic for the official opposition has formed an organization called United Liberty that will promote the principles of freedom and liberty within the Progressive Conservative and Wildrose parties and potentially, a united conservative party.
This organization will promote “yes” to unity votes from both the Progressive Conservative and Wildrose party memberships and will also help promote candidates that reflect the principles of freedom and liberty.
Watch as I provide some highlights from Fildebrandt’s announcement.
The formation of United Liberty comes in the wake of Maxime Bernier’s loss in the CPC leadership race. Bernier was the most freedom oriented candidate in the race and gained a lot of support from Albertans.
This new organization aims to serve those liberty-minded individuals and harness them as a movement that can keep political parties and politicians in check ensuring they don’t stray to the left — something that seems to be a problem with conservative parties today.
