Make your vote count for the arts in Alberta!

Alberta's ruling conservative party will elect a new leader on Friday September 17 - make your voice heard and have a say in our next premier. 

Click here for more information on how to vote - you can vote if you are 16 years of age and up and have a membership which you can buy online.

In a leaders debate on CBC last week, most candidates stated their support for arts funding in order to give our communities a quality of life edge in competing for the best and brightest minds from all over the world to come and stay in Alberta.  Alison Redford put a focus on arts education in schools and Ted Morton said that he would not fund arts projects that were politically motivated, such as documentaries that show Alberta's tar sands in a bad light.

Watch the leader's debate at CBC Centre Stage in Edmonton last week

Make your own decision and VOTE!!
