In the 2012 Alberta election,
we asked progressive voters  to elect a strong centre-left
opposition by voting strategically
 

Out of 42 targeted constituencies, we recommended the correct leading progressive candidate in 39 (93%). Regrettably, the shift to the PCs to strategically stop the Wildrose had a major impact on centre/left candidates. Through ChangeAlberta, we reached tens of thousands of voters and thank everyone who took an interest in thinking strategically before casting a vote.

Progressive (definition)

One who believes government should be a promoter of social justice and the public good, and protector of the environment, rather than leaving the marketplace to determine the distribution of wealth, services, and clean air.

In Alberta, this means placing health, education, social services, and environmental regulation above big business profits and after-tax incomes of high earners. From the Klein years onwards, the "progressive" wing of the Progressive Conservative Party has shrunk to virtually nothing. The PR spin changes but the basic values of the PCs have remained consistent: profiteers and polluters have more rights than ordinary citizens.
