Shadow Cabinet

The Green Party of Alberta is proud to have our own Shadow Cabinet, tasked with responding to current events and the current government of Alberta to express how a Green Party Government would run.

The three main goals of our Shadow Cabinet are as follows.

To develop greater capacity in the GPA to respond to issues and to promote better GPA policy development;

To demonstrate greater depth and capacity of the party to outsiders;

To raise the profile and credibility of the GPA generally and attract more people to it.

After diligent consideration, we have allocated that the following portfolios are important governing points and should be followed extensively.
