Labour activists plan to leaflet Tory convention

EDMONTON - Delegates to the Conservative convention will be greeted on Saturday morning with leaflets reminding them how the Klein government has betrayed the party's own policies on issues such as health care premiums.

Between 8 and 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 23, activists from the Alberta Federation of Labour will hand out leaflets to Tory delegates as they arrive at the Shaw Conference Centre in downtown Edmonton.

WHAT: Leafleting of Conservative convention
WHEN: 8-10 a.m., Saturday, March 23
WHERE: Shaw Conference Centre, 9797 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton

"This is a party that has passed dozens of resolutions about keeping taxes down. And last year they even adopted a resolution calling for the elimination of health care premiums," says AFL president Les Steel.

"What we'll be doing on Saturday is pointing out the hypocrisy of the government's recent decision to increase health premiums and their betrayal of party policy in other areas such as education and children's services."
