The United Conservative Party is answering back after publicly voiced concerns by Fort Saskatchewan - Vegreville M.L.A. Jessica Littlewood regarding United Conservative Party Policies
On the heels of concerns voiced by Fort Saskatchewan - Vegreville M.L.A. Jessica Littlewood regarding United Conservative Party Policies, the U.C.P. is answering back.
Littlewood raised her concerns in a "Letter to the Editor" published a few weeks ago and in which sited "United Conservative Party policies released publicly" last month that would have negative implications for rural Alberta.
Director with the Fort Saskatchewan - Vegreville U.C.P. Constituency Association, Jackie Armstrong-Homeniuk, says the policies Littlewood is referring to stem from a discussion paper provided to party members in January.
Armstrong-Homeniuk says the paper was released in the hopes of gathering feedback from members to reshape and rework policies moving forward.
Armstrong-Homeniuk took specific issue with Littlewood's claim that the U.C.P. is planning to "sell off some of Alberta's most valued institutions", including the Alberta Treasury Branch.
Armstrong-Homeniuk says the U.C.P. will continue to gather party member feedback until February 15th, at which point those submissions will be reviewed and discussed at regional meetings in March and April before final submission and member voting at the party's A.G.M. in May.
Armstrong-Homeniuk calls Littlewood's concerns "baseless" in the Fort Saskatchewan - Vegreville U.C.P. Constituency Association's own "Letter to the Editor" response, which is expected to be published in the coming weeks.
