Alberta Pension Plan (APP)     



APP Support


Selling the APP to Albertans:

We believe that this can be achieved quickly by combining:

  • More Constituency Team Leaders to carry the message locally;

  • An aggressive radio and newspaper advertising campaign;

  • An interactive Web site including features that allow individuals to input their age and expected contribution level, to see how much more they’ll get from the APP than the CPP;

  • Organized promotion to Alberta news media;

  • Organized promotion to Alberta business groups.

We are currently at the stage where we need serious support from those who can well afford to do their part.

The above will be done by setting up Team Leaders in every constituency throughout Alberta.

The Alberta Agenda is a proposal to restore and strengthen provincial rights. It was first expressed in an open letter to Ralph Klein in 2001 written by Stephen Harper, Ted Morton and four other prominent and concerned Albertans.

The Agenda urges Alberta to strengthen its position in Confederation by creating its own provincial police force, and to collect its own personal provincial income tax, all of which are within the existing constitutional powers of provinces.

Prominent Calgary supporters are:

Stan Grad - an Alberta rancher and oilman

Don Barkwell - a retired senior oil executive

Pat Shouldice - founder of Nowsco Well Services

The Alberta Pension Plan working committee consists of Actuary Gordon Lang and a group of other volunteers chaired by business executive Marv Jones. The team that has been organized to sell this idea is led by Pat Beauchamp (Calgary) and Link Byfield (Edmonton), and will be promoting it to the Alberta public, Alberta politicians, and others in high places of influence.
