Libertas Alberta's core mission is to develop policies and pathways for a successful implementation of them.
The list of possible policies is a long one. We have yet to run out of areas that can be addressed.
So in the interest of maintaining focus we came up with "The First Five".
These are policy areas that we felt were due to a combination of several factors were the ones to start with.
Those factors were:
1. Was the area being poorly addressed by the political parties - either due to the political sensitivity or danger they presented?
2. Had the area of policy solutions been well thought out? Were there even good solutions being put forward?
3. Was there an urgency - a timeliness - to bringing forward policy solutions sooner than later?
4. Did conservative politicians need a source of solutions and pathways they could point to?
