A New Survey on Policy Issues in Alberta

There is a survey on our affiliated website Policy Channel. You are invited to participate. We are going to publish the results on Policy Channel and this Blog every Monday afternoon starting this Monday until after the second ballot on December 2, 2006.

This is not a scientific poll because it is not random or necessarily statistically reflective of the demographic, geographic or the socio-economic makeup of the province. Participants will self select but as regular readers of this Blog know the world is run by those who show up.” We cannot make winner predictions out of this survey. It is not about that.

It is not intended to be predictive of outcomes but rather to serve as a public policy insight gathering activity. Because it takes about 5 minutes including some thinking time – we believe participants are more likely to be engaged and interested in following and influencing public policy and politics in Alberta.

We are asking for you opinion on how the government has been doing in some key policy areas and for what recommendations you would make to friends and family regarding each candidate.

Finally we ask if you are or intend to become a PC Party member, your intentions about participating in the voting and how active you have been in various political activities.

It takes about 5 minutes and is not a bunch of yes-no easy questions - it makes you think.

Thanks for taking the time to participate. Again the survey is at Policy Channel
