More Wildrose Candidates Support RETA’s Appeal
Strathcona County Wildrose candidates Paul Nemetchek and Shannon Stubbs are speaking out in support of RETA’s appeal. When asked for his thoughts on the appeal, Strathcona-Sherwood Park Wildrose candidate Paul Nemetchek declared, “I endorse RETA’s appeal. I am personally appalled by the PC government’s complete lack of transparency and their aversion to due process. Neither the Premier nor the Cabinet are critical needs experts, nor is it the role of government to act as such. It is truly telling when the public, industry and municipal governments rally in opposition to actions of our provincial government.” Well said Paul.
Shannon Stubbs (Wildrose candidate in Fort Saskatchewan) spoke at our rally at the legislature a few months ago. About this appeal, she said:
“I strongly support this appeal. I spoke at the RETA rally at the legislature on behalf of Wildrose, and have always found there to be a real synergy between what RETA is saying and what the Wildrose Party believes. Both want the repeal of Bill 50. Both believe that above ground lines shouldn’t run near homes, schools, or daycare centers. Without RETA’s great work, it would have been very difficult to bring these issues to light in the way that we have been able to in the legislature. This appeal of the AUC decision is part of a great continuing effort on the part of RETA to oppose the misguiding agenda of this government on transmission lines.”
RETA’s Executive Director and Sherwood Park candidate Garnett Genuis is of course also a strong supporter of RETA’s appeal.
