BLOCKthePARTY

On Saturday, May 25th, PIA, AUPE, and a multitude of other organizations rallied outside the Progressive Conservative (PC) Party  policy convention at the Radisson Hotel to let the PCAA members and the party know that they are going the wrong way.

About 500 Albertans stood together to create a block against the policies and recent budget cuts that negatively impact families, the most vulnerable, and all sectors in Alberta.

Thank you to all who came out and supported the event, including the volunteers, musicians, and speakers, to rally against PC party policies that inform cuts to public services in Alberta, and to let this government know there is another way.
