Spruce Grove-Stony Plain candidate discusses campaign
Alberta's Independence Party is hoping Albertans would prefer that the province separate from Canada.
Jody Crocker is the candidate in Spruce Grove-Stony Plain, who says his party would put sucession to a referendum if elected on Tuesday.
He says there are some United Nations conventions, like a trade agreement for landlocked countries, would allow Alberta to get its oil to foreign markets.
Crocker says the carbon tax would also be immediately cancelled with a separation, and that Alberta would see a major boost in revenue, as it would retain billions of dollars each year that are currently spent on federal transfer payments.
He says when it comes to the carbon tax and climate change, he's not convinced the province would need to be more proactive than it already is.
Crocker also spoke about school, and specifically Gay Straight Alliances.
He says the party supports the UCP proposal to give teachers more options when it comes to notifying parents about a child's involvement.
NDP candidate Erin Babcock was unable to be in studio.
