With week one of the 2023 Alberta provincial election campaign coming to a close, Rachel Emmanuel is joined by the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation Alberta Director Kris Sims and Crestview Strategies Senior Campaign Strategist Evan Menzies to discuss the top campaign moments of the week.
Rachel, Evan and Kris discuss the top themes emerging from the campaign, and how UCP leader Danielle Smith’s pledge to cut taxes compares with NDP leader Rachel Notley’s promise for free birth control.
They also take a look at polling trends, and discuss how a UCP announcement spent more time in the headlines after a disagreement over the costing.
Election Watch, a special edition of the Alberta Roundup, will run for the four week election campaign. Tune in now!
