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.”

Danielle is a proud Albertan. She is a University of Calgary graduate with degrees in Economics and English, Danielle has had a lifelong interest in Alberta public policy and finding the right balance between free enterprise and individual freedom, and the role of government. She was a Member of the Legislative Assembly for Highwood, leader of the Official Opposition, and leader of the Wildrose Party.

Before re-entering politics, Danielle had extensive experience in the media and in business. Most recently she was President of the Alberta Enterprise Group. Before that she was a radio host with Corus Entertainment for six years.

She married her husband, David in 2006 and together they own and operate The Dining Car, a fully renovated 1940s railcar dining car. She is the proud stepmother of David’s son Jonathan. Danielle and David live in High River with their two dogs, Caine and Colt.

Thank you for stepping up Danielle. It's not an easy thing to do. We appreciate your advocacy during the flood, and especially these past 2 years. You are a problem solver, and you do listen to people. Policy requires unity, but I've also heard you say that when new issues arise, MLAs need to be free to speak to and for their constituents. That has been missing. I will be proud to have you as our MLA, knowing that we will once again have a voice in the Legislative Assembly.

We were really hoping you to run for the UCP leadership! I’m so glad you did!

So called Jodie McKenzie to volunteer (something I don't do) but hey, it's you. No call back - what's up?

Dannielle you have my vote!

I was selling a product in a mall at Sprucegrove Alberta at Christmas. Radio was playing on overhead speaker's in mall. Around 3pm on 630 CHED Santas Anonymous Breaking news MS Smith has crossed the floor. Huh? I am not conservative. I listened to you all the time on QR77 I love talk show radio. You're awesome. Old people in alberta will never forgive you. Just the way it Is.

I appreciated your perspective on the radio and how you allowed voices on both sides of an argument to have thoughtful debate. We’ve moved so far away from critical thought that we need ensure we encourage our next generation how to think, instead of what to think. Good luck and I hope you truly do what you say in this campaign.

We deserve Danielle to take over the reigns

There is a problem with this video... Love Alberta she said? not so much because she don't care about deaf and hard of hearing. This video need C.C. for those who are deaf and hard of hearing.

What an unbelievable evening we had in Sylvan Lake yesterday! Almost 300 people showed up to hear how we can put Alberta First!

Thank you Onsy Tawadrous for inviting me into your community and hosting this event. Onsy asked community members to bring their tough questions and big concerns and they did just that!

As your premier, I want you to know that I am here to listen to you, I am here to advocate for you, and I am here to put Alberta and Albertans first.

To do that, I need your help though! Sign up at www.daniellesmith.ca and make sure to get your membership before August 12th so you can vote!

Thank you so much for visiting Sylvan Lake last night. A great night and a great turn out to hear how we can put Alberta first! Well done!!

I enjoyed listening to ideas. I see a brighter Alberta future under you! Great job

Nice! people are looking for strong leadership to fill the vacuum of weak leaders we had. Are so called leaders have empty words and desired narratives, filled with flip flops and lies.

You were direct and convincing. Keep it up.

Alberta need to be free of Ottawa, they don't understand our situation , so be it. Let them decide for Central Canada. Alberta need to be heard and not seen... time for a real change, a good change for our future and future generation. Right now, Justin Trudeau is only listening to the Eastern provinces, even Manitoba is more of a Liberal Province and so is B.C. Alberta has and always will be a conservative province since Peter Lougheed.

Great to see!

A well spent hour and a half. Thanks Danielle. Go get 'em. And don't forget when your speaking of the RCMP, guns and High River the the tragedy they created in N.S..

👏👏👏

OLDS TONIGHT!!!!!! Go get’em Danielle.

Thank you Danielle Smith!

What about Tamara Lich. This absolute 100% BS

You had your chance to be Premier as leader of the Wild Rose but you, and seven others got suckered into crossing the floor! You would have undoubtedly won before that.

Did you know Justin Trudeau's new internet censorship law will mean Liberal partisans can pick and choose what Albertans can say and express on the Internet?

As Premier, I will protect the right of every Albertan to express their opinion - left, right and everything in between - without fear of Ottawa's censorship.

You know they won’t be censoring the left.

I vote for No More Trudeau

Get rid of him

i posted a comment(no bad words) regarding True Dohs policies yesterday, Fais Book blocked it saying it went against their community standard, then clasified it as spam.. when I tried to dispute it they told me there are not enough reviewers because of covid, second time this has happened when mention his majesties name

Separation is the only way out of Trudeauistan! The west cannot out-vote Toronto. We cannot afford more Liberals! They need us, we don't need them.

Peaceful protesters arrested again tonight. No Alberta at the table ??? Do you have a statement

What are your thoughts on Tamara Lich being arrested again? I haven’t seen anything by you addressing this. So far only Todd Loewen & Bill Rock have addressed it

He is such a loser

Reported as hate speech

Time to subscribe to a vpn

Very sick LiTitle boys,

🐖🐖🐖💩🤮🤦‍♀️

Time for the west to join the U.S.

Useless moron.

Won't that be wonderful 🙄🙄

The government needs to make counselling affordable so everyone suffering from mental health issues can get access to what they need and for as long they need it.

The devastation of lockdowns and isolation needs to be exposed. My concern is it will be swept under the rug like everything else. This must be taken seriously.

And dr Teresa Tam just got a 22% raise. So does they tell us if you go along with the government agenda you will be protected or even rewarded ?

Thank you for this knowledge. Although I do not have children of my own, I have been worried about the kids and the schooling. Great interview! 👍 💖💖

At our daycare they had pilons around the play structure and insisted AHS said the kids were not allowed to play on it because it was "wood" and could not be sanitized. Non-sense restrictions.

Post secondary education for teachers these days is upside down. I value them 🙏🏻 but their curriculum is backwards. The homework my kids bring home is so convoluted and confusing.

Didn't Ron DeSantis, speak about holding business in Florida accountable if they tried to enforce vaccines on their employees

Wow, good on you 👏. Thank you for your work. My son appreciates it. I will start following your work and try to volunteer where I can. 💓

How about bringing back regular testing and exams. How about having high standards and expectations. Quit babying students. Make them compete with each and then the world.

I’m in Royal oak Calgary. Boys in elementary. Couldn’t even play with anyone outside their classrooms. Not even at recess.

So clearly wrong 🙄. Keep putting yourself out there Danielle. I am spreading your posts. We need you! Thanks for bringing the awareness.

Just absolutely brutal! These decisions were made by Kenney and Hinshaw? Or was Travis Toews part of this group?

I know multiple fathers/providers in redcliff/southern Alberta that took their lives with the unnecessary stress.

No proof of anything was provided by any Government or School Officials with regard to ANY measures be it Lockdowns ,

Why weren’t Alberta Students choices respected by Government, Health Professionals, and Schools Officials PRIOR?

I was at the CBE head office DT Calgary protesting the masks in sept and none of the staff showed up 😒

They have the power now and they won’t give it up. Thanks to Patriots like you 2 ladies for speaking out.

Are you aware that AHS has an independent board that is NOT required to report to the Minister of Heslth?

We need to separate from Canada! Feds want us to be locked up, loose our homes, make us go hungry. Trudeau could stop inflation if he would back off oil and gas, stop carbon tax.

The vaccine passport was purely imposed to increase vaccination rates.

I’m permanently emotionally damaged. It’s awful what they did to us and the kids.

That’s exactly what needs to happen! Our health care has been horrible for many years!

I have an Irish friend on a PR that was not able to fly home for 2 years. Unacceptable.

Cathryn is an incredible guest and advocate for children and their parents. Wow.

Should have always been a choice.
