Meet Danielle

“I’m running because I love Alberta. This is my home and I feel passionately that the people of this province are not being treated fairly by Ottawa. We need to push back, regain our pride, and have autonomy over our decisions. Together, let’s put Alberta First and as Premier, that is exactly what I will do.”.
