“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.”

Our party will remain UNITED through respect for the grassroots & for each other.

I am looking forward to continuing to work with Brian Jean, Travis Toews, Rebecca Schulz, Todd Loewen, Rajan Sawhney, & Leela Sharon Aheer. There are many great policy ideas amongst us!

What are some of your ideas for Alberta? Share them below👇

I think it's wonderful that Danielle is focusing on her competitors strengths and not verbally bashing her running mates. Such a wonderful thing to see, it's been too long.

This what real leaders do, they build people up! It's refreshing Danielle Smith!

Well said Danielle Smith! We’ve been waiting to hear you speak positively about your peers. Well done!

Class, integrity, honesty, collaboration, unity. There we have it....real leadership!

i would like to see a Alberta pension plan where a chunk of the oil and gas profits go into a heritage fund for the people and no politian can get their fingers into it and borrow from it. if this is done right Albertans could have a pension that is actually going to allow us to retire and maybe at a earlier age

Very well said Danielle. We need to unify and utilize the talents of these dedicated individuals. On another note, I was somewhat amused with a cbc led debate about the sovereignty act that Danielle will introduce. Of course in typical cbc fashion the two people that she had on their program were both against it and tried to spread fear and mis information about the act. Also not surprising, all of the callers but one that they gave air time was against it also. Amused but not surprised. I really like that Danielle is taking the high road when referring to her opponents. Keep up the great work Danielle.

Really important to show respect for Todd Lowen and keep him on the team. I doubt he can win the leadership race but he is a hard working man with deep integrity.

What… positivity?! I’m baffled and delighted 😂. Well done Danielle!

That’s wonderful, unfortunately I will hold Toews responsible for school mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and forced segregation. If he spills the beans on who was behind it all, I would set aside my hatred of the man.

Strong leaders have confidence in themselves and ability to accomplish tasks and the ability to analyze situations hence find solutions quickly! This confidence is manifested unto the supporting staff and populace ! That’s the type of leader the province needs at this particular time! Confident people don’t knock other other peoples views but encourage individuals to participate and contribute new ideas within the group as well ,consequently allows them stand on their own merit, with the voter!

Hey Danielle Smith. As a follower of Christ I want to applaud you for taking the higher road and avoiding the game of tearing others down. I don’t know if this is a matter of personal conviction (I hope) or you have a smart campaign manager but well done!

Wonderful!! So nice to see a candidate willing to unite and not divide a party! Willing to work with others to accomplish a common goal. She may well extend this to the opposition parties in the Legislature, wouldn't that be great! If the opposition is willing to put aside their politics and work with the government just imagine what Alberta could accomplish? I can always dream 😇

I like Travis Toews idea of scrapping the GDL or at least changing it to a model that is like Saskatchewan where we don't have to pay to get out of a GDL, it changes automatically after a couple years of good driving.

The strategies for provincial sovereignty are contained in the Free Alberta Strategy. This strategy has limited details (one page) relating to the Alberta Sovereignty Act. My research has not yielded any further information. The full text of the proposed act, timing and process for implementation should be shared with members as it could clear up a lot of the current controversy and put a lot of folks at ease in supporting your bid for leadership.

Just sent a letter to the Sun concerning their hit piece on Danielle and the health spending account for Albertans to help pay things not covered. Funny the Sun constantly whines Albertans don’t have enough money for some care only provided to union members, and politicians, there employees at the paper but when she comes up with a solution letting the whining begin. There so worried about it undermining public health, there doing a fine job undermining themselves at this moment, they really should do a piece and list all the companies that have health spending accounts for their employees like AHS, ATA, Postmedia, surely there not suggesting AHS up is undermining the health care system, when they give them that $1000 a year check that they can carry over for two years. Sweet if your working for government but regular serfs are of no concern to the Sun. Danielle should really thank the msm, like Pierre everytime they do a hit piece it confirms in peoples mind, she’s exactly who they should vote for. They don’t care about Albertans it’s just click bait so you read three lines and believe the headline. But alas we know they have to earn their Ottawa bucks somehow, seeing as there tanking for newspaper sales. Read past the first three lines of anything they print, the truth is sometimes buried on the bottom of the article. Be waiting for the piece the Sun publishes on all the companies with health spending accounts.

Replace Jason Nixon , I’m in his riding and I won’t vote him.

There’s 3 things I’m looking for in the next UCP leader. 1) ability to go head to head with Notley in the next election, 2) be a thorn in Trudeau’s side and gain more for Alberta, 3) unify the UCP as much as it can be. Danielle is the only one I see who has enough backbone to debate Notley and expose her for what she is. Danielle will definitely irritate the federal liberals. Danielle has worked with the different groups that make up the UCP before, she has the experience pull them together. We have some good people running, we need a leader who won’t shrink when the left starts the name calling and shaming, and can still maintain composure to move the province forward. Danielle is our best bet.

Finally someone that understands leadership! Cannot wait to see Alberta with Danielle Smith as her premier!

I am considering joining the Independence Party, they have Artur Pawlowski and Katherine Kowalchuk. Why are these people not welcome in the UCP ? The fact that Artur Pawlowski chose to run for a different party should be deeply troubling to you, but you don't seem to care. These are the people you need to attract to the UCP, and in order to do that you have to get rid of Leela Aheer, Rajan Sawney, and Rebecca Schulz. Unity means unity against all those that hate freedom, and want us dependent on Ottawa, you have to oust from the party some of these leadership candidates. You need to reopen the nominations after you win, and let people that support freedom run and replace the establishment. You may not like the job, but you have to do it, Trump is still doing it in the Republican Party after 6 years and he is not finished yet. The sooner you realize this, the better, so far I see that you are going to compromise the pro-freedom agenda by associating yourself with the people that locked us down, imposed vaccine mandates, and couldn't care less about our freedoms.

Can you imagine if somehow all of this actually went through? (Sovereignty bill) Every single knuckle-dragging mouth breather in the country would move here. Be careful of what you wish for.

So refreshing to have no bashing and negativity. Lift each other up don’t tear the party down. Positive politics looks good on her.

Danielle Smith has the right approach. Find a common ground with each member and work from there! Better to build up then tear down! The bad apples will weed themselves out.

Just policies and campaign promises are not useful to public. Politicians say all the heart touching comments but do nothing when in the chair. How do we know that you and your party will be united both at provincial and federal level and the trust will not be broken. Hope you are the right person to lead Alberta and generate feelings of unity in the party. Good luck. Wish you the best

Tory mans “robber”. Has for 400 years. UCP is robbing us of our healthcare, education, etc. Death by a thousand cuts. Look at what conservatives are doing in the UK. UCP puts profit over people. For goodness sake, Albertans, have you learned nothing? They are in the pockets of corporations. AIMCO lost billions. You cannot trust these conservative exploiters. Have you not seen the harm they have done?

A referendum on separation. We are not going to get a fair deal from the federal government no matter who is in there because our charters are not in our favour. Let's see what the people from Alberta want. If nothing else it will scare the pants off Ottawa!

One thing I really like about Danielle Smith is she can stand her ground without resorting to insults, strawmanning, or pettiness. She also doesn't ridicule the supporters of her competitors. It is a quality we should all look for in leadership.

You’re on the right track obviously Mrs Smith.

Why in all the world would we vote for a party which got us in most of the mess???We should have a total change ! Kenny was OK inThe beginning , but somehow somewhere he turned ! AND was not standing up for our Rights and Freedoms ! SORRY THAT IS UNVERGIVABLE !!!!

I will not say anything bad about Mr. Kenny, he tried during unprecedented times. I know he loves the Federation and did not like talk about separating. Conservatives are fickle people, if you don’t please some, then you too will be tossed. It’s what they do.

he has a point Please rethink this

Lost my respect for @jkenney by interfering in the democratic process today.

If we just attack each other all day long what is accomplished? I fear for all Albertans now because of deposing Kenney. Not because I'm pro Kenney but that this effort has sliced the UCP into several pieces and those involved like Rob Anderson should not take pride in it.

We are with you Danielle! Kenny is out for a reason, he always talked up a storm but what did it ever do for Alberta. Once again Kenny is worried about Ottawa, Governor General and all the other traps instead of identifying and working with and around them.

Pettiness on behalf of the acting premier. How is it been going so far as far as what Kenny has accomplished against Ottawa. New ideas, new possibilities.

Anything Kenney is against Im for.

Hey Danielle, why are you blocking so many people on Twitter?

One is a federalist and one opinion plays on the disgust of all things Trudeau father and son ..and the continued taking of equalization without regard for our future rights just remember this can quickly become a separation agenda this the path we want ? Danielle has my vote ..but remember you can love Alberta and not want to separate 😎❤️🇨🇦👍it’s going to be conservatives at federal and provincial levels the most important thing is to untie the Trudeau years and get things done 👍🇨🇦

At least you are trying new ideas. Some will work some will not.

Brian Jean is notley the clone

Then share the dam act with albertans now. What are you hiding

His opinion matters as much as Notley’s opinion on cancer prevention - a hard 0

Kenny is an ignoramus!

hasn’t Jason Kenney already done enough damage as credible as the Minister of Finance he appointed - Travis Toews and his PST smear campaign #DrainTheSwamp

You won even more respect from myself sticking up for alberta with the sovereignty act

My question to you Ms Smith Why would you accept an endorsement from Madu When he was a big part of the problem when this government was forcing us into lockdowns

Manifest it girl

global trudeau a$$ kisser Kenney will not sway me on my vote

The problem with Kenney and Travis Toews is that they are old guard conservatives. They still believe in attracting business to Alberta, and when the Calgary Chamber of Commerce condemned the Alberta Sovereignty Act, they jumped on it. And Danielle, the problem with you is that you do not understand that the Calgary Chamber of Commerce is your enemy and our enemy, this is the same Chamber that condemned the lifting of vaccine passports, they wanted us all vaccinated. The hell with the Chamber Commerce, Danielle you have to take a stance or this people will eat you alive. I will vote for you second after Todd Loewen, but if you do not get tough with these big businesses I am voting for an Independence Party and not the UCP in next year's election Catering to special interests like business, I am sick of it. Big business will never support a Danielle Smith government, unless you sell your soul to them as Kenney did after they asked him to implement vaccine passports. Here is the link to the Chamber of Commerce condemning the lifting of vaccine passports, I have seen enough of this people that now attack you for the Sovereignty Act, they will never support you just like in the US big business hates Trump, they have gone woke, period.

Danielle you had my vote but now that you have Madu and Dreeshan on board, I’m not sure anymore🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺

Very good...very to the point! Kenney should be on the train to Ottawa...

Agreed Danielle Vaxxport Kenney had his chance and lost it. Cheers to a new and non-discriminatory Premier 🥂

I’m very concerned with some of the ideas that Danielle is promoting! I feel like I’m listening to a western separation party and not a UCP PARTY

Give it a rest already. You don't think previous governments had constitutional knowledge and ways to leverage the federal government? Your "sovereignty act" is just a political gimmick and would either be voted down in the legislature or thrown out in court.

He has absolutely no business butting into a leadership campaign WHEN HE WAS OUSTED AND- THAT MEANS WE DONT WANT TO HEAR FROM HIM,!!

100 years of being used and abused by Ottawa. With Trudeau and his puppet masters ramping up central power like never seen before. If we don't stop it now, we will be doomed.

So you were busy today blocking people on twitter. Nice way to treat people who may be your constituents. Looks like you didn’t grow a backbone after you quit your radio show.

I prefer SEPARATION OF THE WEST but this act will be a good beginning.

Some Albertans are tired of people trying to turn it into an independent capitalist dystopia. Please stop.

Enough of working collaboratively, I am voting for you to clean house in the UCP, not to collaborate with any Kenney loyalist but to re-open the nominations and elect people that will support you in the next legislature. We want change, not working with existing MLAs which are as responsible as Kenney for the current failure. Your job is to first and foremost cleanse the UCP party from Kenney loyalists, and secondly to defeat Rachel Notley. People like Kaycee Madu that support you are fine, but there are many others in caucus right now that should not be re-elected, and we need to reopen all nominations and allow Danielle Smith loyalists to run.

This sounds like a good idea. But is one of the dumbest ever

Agreed! Kenney did great things for Alberta, but not uniting the party and failing to move ahead with the Alberta first agenda was his failing. It’s choice to be criticizing Danielle for wanting to move ahead on that agenda.

If the people wanted Kenny and all his failed ideas lies and back tracking we would not be having this race. The only way Alberta has a shot to recover itself from the Ottawa boot on our necks is to separate.

Finally I am warming up to Kenney!

Care to share this proposed Act so voters can decide for themselves if it is good?

What is your opinion on provincial Police

Canadian unity should come before UCP unity.

Whoops somebody is a little miffed, sorry but I think we Albertans better be paying attention Kenny is not the only politician who has voiced an opinion on this issue that is not favourable.

Should never have crossed the floor to be a Kenny puppet now she is a Kenney outcast.

If you are a threat, you will be a target. I speak from what I know!!!!

Why is He still trying to divide Alberta?

Floor crosser

Well stated Danielle.

Danielle Smith is Canada's Marjorie Taylor Greene ....NOT a good thing

Good for you.. you got this girl

Get your questions READY, we will be taking questions shortly.

Tell us you're watching! Say "hello"!

What will you do to tackle AHS? Specifically 1. the censorship and manipulation of covid info... And 2. The bloated beaurocricy

I think Danielle has the right approach with new ideas to put Alberta first, however I think she needs to partner with friends of science to educate and inform Albertans on the true climate issues

Just came home from a trip to Norway. She is absolutely correct. What they have done is short of miraculous! Just because they kept and invested in their own country !

As always, we are so proud of you! We are your biggest fans and supporters. Fun fact - Chloe just turned 18 and she bought her membership so now we can all support you at the polls!

Verna Yiu managed to snag another high paying job after she left AHS with a huge severance. They are all corrupt.

In my new career, it's called fail forward. You learn from you mistakes or failures and you will not let that happen again and you have learned how to do it differently and more effecively.

I support Danielle because she seems to be our best hope for a free and prosperous Alberta. Standing up to Ottawa is really important to me.

This revelation about the people waiting placement astounds me. This is what is wrong with our health care system. No communication and mismanagement. AHS needs to be dismantled.

You just said detailed platform, I never seen it. Just tidbits with no details. I asked on her page and got no response. I like some of what I heard but not enough to say I would vote for her.

Another question. How about getting more refineries in Alberta? We could create more jobs and export a finished product instead of raw materials.

Welcome everyone, get your questions ready!

Will Alberta companies be held responsible for firing albertans due to medical choices? Also, on another topic, how are you willing to protect our farmers and ranchers?

Danielle has always been the most intelligent person in the room. Just a fantastic choice for Premier.

Would it be possible to have physician assistants help to clear the backlog in our emergency rooms? I don’t think everyone who attends the emergency room needs to be cleared by a doctor. 

Curious what ethical standards will you lay out for your team. ie.Rooftop, Christmas party etc. What accountability will hold them too.

I would like to know what you meant by "net zero faster" and how that will not hurt our farmers, truckers and oil and gas industries

Wendy Edwardson You can be the smartest person in the room but if you are not a good speaker, it will be difficult getting people to listen to you. Danielle is a great speaker!

Danielle is seeing what everyone sees except (strangely enough) AHS!! AHS is clearly incompetent, or perhaps just too comfortable..

Too many seniors in hospital waiting for age care, we need to find a way to help those to stay in their homes with care , many are forced out of their homes

Q- Will you commit to scrapping Kenney's Education plan, and implenting the curriculum that Kenny scrapped? It was a masterpiece, created by 70,000 stakeholders. Can we have it back?
