Standing up to the UCP. Standing up for working Albertans.

Gil is a proven leader — elected and re-elected a record ten times as the President of Alberta’s largest worker advocacy group, the Alberta Federation of Labour. Here’s a collection of some of the work Gil has been doing recently to diversify the Alberta economy and protect the interests of working Albertans. As a seasoned leader in Alberta civil society, Gil is ready to take his skills, experience and ideas to the next level — first, as leader of the Alberta NDP and then as Premier of Alberta. Take a look and these examples. Gil’s already a major player on our province’s political stage. As NDP leader, he will hit the ground running!
