Glenn_jeans_2.pngWatch Glenn share the Alberta Party‘s perspective on all of the debate questions.

During the televised leaders debate over 1700 Albertans followed Glenn’s live blog (read the transcript). ¬†We’ve received tremendous feedback on our innovative and positive approach to participating in tonight’s debate – despite not being invited.

Immediately after the¬†debate, Glenn and I filmed the¬†Debate Wrap Up Video, where Glenn provides the Alberta Party’s responses to all of the questions raised in the debate.

Please share this video.

Since we didn’t have the opportunity to partcipate in the televised debate, we need your help to share this important video. ¬†Please use the Facebook and Twitter buttons below to share this page.

It’s working! Our impact is growing every day.

All of our hard work is starting to pay off and the Alberta Party’s message is spreading faster than ever. With your continued help, we can make a huge impact in this election! Thank you for all of your support!

Brian Thiessen
President, Alberta Party

If a party can field as many candidates as the Alberta Party is during this election campaign…the media consortium should invite them to the debate:

A word about the televised leaders’ debate

Posted by Glenn Taylor 88.60pc on April 10, 2012 · Flag

As many of you know, the Alberta Party has been excluded from the televised leaders’ debate. The media consortium that controls the debate has a long established rule that requires a political party to have elected a member to the legislature under the party banner.¬† Under these rules, the Alberta Party does not qualify and the media consortium has refused to change their position.¬† Of course, this is very disappointing to the party, our suppporters and to me personally.

We will make sure that we are heard.

Of course we are not going to stand silently on the sidelines.  Through the use of technology, we will make sure that Albertans hear the Alberta Party perspective:

  • First, I will be live blogging my answers to the questions posed to the party leaders throughout the debate – from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm on Thursday, April 12.¬† Albertans can follow my answers live by logging into¬†Alberta Party Debate Live Blog.
  • Second, within hours of the debate, the Alberta Party will release a Debate Wrap-Up Video where I will discuss the most important questions raised in the debate.

We need your help.

We need your help to get the word out about the Alberta Party Debate Live Blog and Debate Wrap-up Video.  Please forward this email to your friends and family and encourage them to follow my comments live on Thursday night or to subscribe to the Alberta Party email list (using the subscription box in the right column of this page) to get an email with the link to the wrap-up video.

Help us advertise online.

There is one other way you can help us get the word out.  Help us purchase some online advertising to promote the Alberta Party Debate Live Blog and Debate Wrap-Up Video.  If we can raise $5,000 in the next three days, we can make sure that more Albertans are aware of the blog and video.  Every donation Рno matter how big or small Рhelps.

With your help and support, we can make sure that the Alberta Party’s message is heard.
