Our election website breaks down the issues the matter most to business

Premier Alison Redford dropped the election writ yesterday morning, setting off a 28-day provincial campaign that will send Albertans to the polls on April 23.

For the last three months, the Calgary Chamber’s team of economists and policy analysts has been talking to the Calgary business community to find out what matters most to them during this election. Through these conversations, we’ve identified a number of concerns, which make up our Great Alberta policy platform.

Every week, starting on April 2, new content will be rolled out on our soon to launch Great Alberta website. This will include such items as an analysis of each party’s policy platform, a completed questionnaire from each party’s leadership and information on our upcoming business issues forum. During this forum, the political parties will debate each other on the issues that matter most business.

Stay tuned for more information next week in eConnecting.
