Decision – Alberta Liberal Leadership Nolan Crouse

It is with varied emotions that I share that with nominations closing March 31 at 5:00 pm with respect to the Alberta Liberal Leadership contest, I have decided that I will not be letting my name remain standing for the ALP Leader role and that effective immediately all activities in this regard will cease.

As such, I am requesting of Elections Alberta and the Alberta Liberal Leadership Party to have my name removed as a Candidate.

While many may wonder the reason(s) for this decision, the reasons will be kept private and I will provide “no comment” as to these varied questions and associated speculation.

I wish to thank the hundreds who have assisted, volunteered and donated time; the support has been overwhelming and appreciated.

To the Party and prospective Candidates, I wish everyone the very best as Albertans are amidst unprecedented and uncertain political times.

Yours sincerely,

Nolan Crouse

PC Party of Alberta – Mr. Jason Kenney

March 19, 2017

Let me begin by congratulating Mr. Jason Kenney on becoming the new Leader of the PC Party of Alberta. Mr. Kenney’s dedication and resolve to redirect the Wildrose and PC Parties is well-known, and I sincerely wish him well in this new position.

Many of you are aware I have chosen to further dedicate myself to public service by wishing to serve Albertans as the next leader of today’s Alberta Liberals.

I know Albertans are seeking a modern political party that celebrates Alberta’s diversity, recognizes moderate ideologies, and values fiscal prudence. This is my vision of the Alberta Liberal Party, and it is needed now more than ever before.

Currently, Alberta’s larger, mainstream political parties represent divergent views with ideologies that are in stark contrast with one another. This creates an unfortunate situation for Albertans who are forced to choose between extremes.

However, Albertans do have a better option: the Alberta Liberal Party. This is the one party that continues to demonstrate moderation, fiscal prudence, and inclusion, which represent today’s values in our province. The Alberta Liberals are the smart and common sense choice for Albertans.

We are re-building 87 teams to represent you, and form a province-wide team to champion the true wishes of most Albertans – something no other party offers.

As a proven leader, I believe I can lead Albertans in bringing people together and creating policies that are helpful and fair to everyone, and not tied to political right or left ideologies.

As Leader, I will work with you. Together we will strengthen our Alberta and ensure we stay at the forefront as a leading province. Together we can create more opportunities for families, for business, and for Albertans, young and old and that excites me!

Alberta is better and stronger when we stand together in unity. I invite you join this important and exciting movement. I welcome and encourage all PC party members to review our Alberta Liberal website, take out a membership and stay in touch over the coming months. Leadership nominations close on March 31, 2017. I appreciate your support.

Sincerely,

Nolan Crouse

Alberta Liberal Party – Our Values

Equal Opportunity … Liberals oppose both privilege and prejudice. Everyone should have as equal an opportunity as possible to participate in society, enjoying equal rights and freedoms, and sharing responsibilities.

Free Enterprise … Alberta Liberals have faith in the free enterprise system. Through it, the widest number of opportunities are provided, the greatest number of needs are satisfied, and initiative is most rewarded. Nevertheless, the market system is not perfect. The government has a role to play in preventing exploitation, protecting consumers and preserving the environment. Government also has a role to play in facilitating economic development and competition, and serving public needs which the private sector cannot or will not meet.

Fiscal Responsibility … Alberta Liberals believe that government has an obligation to manage the affairs of the province in a prudent and responsible manner. Wasteful spending threatens essential government programs such as health care and education for today’s constituents, and fairness dictates that future generations not be burdened with our debts.

Environmental Responsibility … Alberta Liberals believe that the protection of the environment is essential to the longterm health of our planet and ourselves, and to our quality of life. Environmental policy must look beyond a traditional view of economics to reflect the cultural and spiritual importance of the environment in our lives. Responsible policy-makers must consider the environment a sacred trust

Change … Liberals have always been reformers. We seek to improve the system as we search for ways of improving the human condition. We are not afraid to initiate change. Without compromising our principles, our search for solutions is driven not by rigid ideology but by the question, “What is best?”

Alberta Liberal Party Leadership Bid @ABLiberal

March 1, 2017

It is with excitement and great optimism that I share with you and all Albertans, that all processes have been completed, I have satisfied all the requirements, and I am now an official Candidate seeking the Leadership of the Alberta Liberal Party.

My interest to help others through public and community service has been paramount throughout my life, and this is an opportunity to do so in another important way, at a very critical time. My role and responsibility serving as Mayor of the City of St. Albert will continue fully until the end of my term, although as I previously announced, I will not be seeking re-election in the fall of 2017.

The Alberta Liberal Party knows it is an important time to establish itself as the most progressive and moderate political choice for Albertans. Recently, the Alberta Liberal Party announced the beginning of this new chapter with its intent to choose the Party’s next Leader in June, replacing Dr. David Swann.

Over the last several weeks while contemplating my decision, I met with many Albertans to hear their perspectives, and I experienced an overwhelming level of enthusiasm for an active, engaging and modern Liberal Party in Alberta.

Most of you expressed Albertans’ values of inclusiveness, dignity, integrity, pragmatism, stability, and economic responsiveness – all values that resonate deeply with me.

These values, together with concerns expressed by some, are what is motivating me to lead the Party and work with you to help create an even stronger Alberta for us all.

I personally believe it is of interest to all Albertans that the Alberta Liberal Party creates a modern gateway where we respect ideological differences, celebrate our diversity and find ways to better represent Albertans politically. After all, that is today’s Alberta, and Alberta is better together; a Province of middle-class citizens.

Having had the privilege of serving 4 terms on Council, 3 terms (10 Years) as Mayor, and 5 years as Chair of the Capital Region Board, I understand the challenges that residents and municipalities face. Whether it be large, small, rural and urban, I appreciate the necessity for economic vitality in our province, and I equally care about the range of circumstances and needs facing Alberta’s most vulnerable.

As an experienced business person, experienced leader, husband, father, grandfather and lifelong Albertan, I care very much about our Province’s success. To me, the Alberta Liberal Party represents both today’s progressive values along with well-grounded ideals.

To serve Alberta as the volunteer Alberta Liberal Party Leader is an opportunity I take to heart, and I look forward to connecting with more Albertans in the weeks ahead.

If you wish to get involved, donate, ask questions, or provide input, I encourage you to contact me, available in a variety of ways

Quote that is important and a product of life lessons for all www.nolancrouse.com @ABLiberal

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
