  • March 04, 2019 -Edmonton- ​Alberta Party leader, Stephen Mandel, promised an Alberta Party government will bring in new standards to protect taxpayers and provide more open democracy for Albertans. The announcement was made after a Court of Queen’s Bench victory restored the leader’s right to run in the upcoming election to represent Albertans in Edmonton-McClung.

    Alberta Party Leader, Stephen Mandel, is energized by the decision.

    “This vindictive legislation has created a huge mess and needlessly tied up the court system. Candidates were forced to fight overreaching legislation and unreasonable penalties in court while the Notley government slashed funding for opposition parties and used AHS facilities to campaign at the taxpayer’s expense. An Alberta Party government will bring in new Standards to Protect Democracy, to stop politicians from weaponizing the government for political purposes.”

    Mandel joins 5 other Alberta Party candidates, who were also victorious in court.

    In what appears to have been a busy day for the party, Mandel also says that his government would green light a much needed expansion to the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.  It means more beds and services available in central Alberta so families don’t have to travel long distances to get care.

    “The Alberta Party recognizes the Red Deer Regional Hospital has fallen behind in development and expansion. The failure over two decades to sufficiently invest in this critical facility has hampered its ability to function as a main referral hospital. The approximately 450,000 Albertans living in the Central Zone deserve to receive their health care closer to home.”

    The Alberta Party is pleased the recent Interventional Cardiac Services Needs assessment has determined that cardiac catheterization is deliverable in Red Deer. This assessment supports the Alberta Party’s position on developing enhanced services in central Alberta. However, there is still work to be done.

    “The current government still has not publicly released the Updated Needs Assessment study on the Red Deer Regional Hospital, a study which was completed months ago. I call on the Minister to immediately release this report publicly in order to allow all parties to develop plans for this important project.”

  • From Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT)

    Investigation continues into RCMP officer-involved shooting

    On April 6, 2019, at approximately 8:15 a.m., RCMP were advised of an Eckville, Alberta location where stolen oilfield property might be found.

    An RCMP officer responded to the reported location at the rear of a strip of businesses on the north side of Eckville.

    The officer found four vehicles at the location. As the officer was checking the vehicles, he located a man who appeared to be sleeping in a Ford F250 truck and made cursory observations of the interior of the vehicle. The officer returned to his police vehicle and checked the licence plate number, which came back registered to a different vehicle. The officer requested assistance to his location, placed a spike belt and returned to his police vehicle to await assistance.

    While the officer was waiting for assistance, a confrontation occurred that resulted in the officer discharging his service pistol.

    The man sustained a single gunshot wound that resulted in serious, but not life-threatening injuries. He was treated on scene by EMS, transported to hospital and admitted. He remains in hospital.

    The Ford F250 was determined to have been stolen approximately 5 days earlier from Saskatoon and the licence plate was also determined to have been stolen.

    With the investigation underway, ASIRT will not make any further comment until the matter is concluded.
