My name is Tanner Hnidey. I am applying for a Directorial Position in WIPA because Alberta is in danger. We, the people of Alberta, are in danger. We are in danger of forever losing our freedom.
I am an Economist. Obtaining my degree from the University of Calgary, I was classically trained in a discipline of economics called “Industrial Organization” (IO) under the direction of one of the world’s leading IO experts, Dr. Jeffrey Church. Throughout my time of study, I was introduced to numerous influential economists: James Buchanan, Ronald Coase, Oliver Williamson, and Jeffrey Church, whose theories formulated my worldview regarding the intersection of economics and politics.
IO pertains to the study and appropriate government policy in imperfect (real) markets; particularly, the energy markets. This specialization permits me to confidently conclude that investors, both foreign and domestic, presently possess minimal confidence in the Canadian markets. My studies have derived logical proofs that the creation of the Canadian Energy Regulator, along with egregious bills like C-69 and C-48, have corrupted the regulatory process and now frighten investors away.
However, though undeniably important, economic policy is of no use if we as a people are not free. All my life, I have lived in Alberta and am fiercely proud to declare it so, but I recognize, as all of us do, that there is an Armada of Tyranny amassed on the Eastern horizon in Ottawa. At the government’s command, this sinister fleet has assembled in Alberta and is presently subjecting us to a bombardment of equalization payments, tax and carbon taxes, nationalization, regulatory holdup, and pure political corruption. All of these attacks and defamatory accusations are aimed to break Albertan’s backs and destroy our resolve. In reality,
we are a proud province cruelly dismissed as an unthinking monetary engine whose only purpose is to feed the insatiable appetite of Ottawa for spending on their now-revealed globalist agenda. All the while, our ability to earn capital, live freely, and enjoy life is systematically crushed from all sides by a consuming regulation and restriction of our rights.
Compared to my acquaintances, I am relatively youthful. However, I am convinced this would be advantageous for our movement, for I am proof that a younger generation is not required to capitulate and adhere to a progressive leftist dogma! Exposed to a great variety of ideologies at the University of Calgary, I have witnessed the severe attack on freedom from the radical left. This assault against families is achieved by slandering business and protesting hard- working Albertans, all under the masquerade of safety and security. Accusers falsely propagate these people as acting with malevolent intentions simply because they want to open their homes and businesses to others. But, if we are to covey this message to the younger, modern, metropolitan voters, a separate specific strategy utilizing effective branding and popular trends while maintaining intellectual legitimacy is required.
My purpose is to defend truth, ensure government and political lawlessness is restrained, and champion freedom at all costs.
Thanks so much!
Dr. Gordon Janke
I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta and have lived in Alberta my whole life. I lived in the Ottewell area of Edmonton and attended grade school and Junior High school in that area. I subsequently attended Bonnie Doon High School from 1973-1975 graduating with honours. In fall of 1975, I began my journey through postsecondary education at the University of Alberta, earning a BSc. Degree in 1978 as well as a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1981. Upon graduating from Dental School at the U of A, I established a private practice of dentistry in Lloydminster, Alberta and practiced there for 10 years before moving back to Edmonton and establishing a private practice of dentistry in the Millwoods area of Edmonton. I practiced there until June of 2017, being in practice for over 36 years. During that time, I was involved in organized dentistry on a local, provincial and national level, including serving in a teaching capacity as a clinical instructor and associate clinical professor at the U of Alberta School of Dentistry for over 15 years. I also served on the North East District Dental Society Mediation committee and continue to be a member of the Alberta Dental Association and College and the Canadian Dental Association. I have served on various committees in both organizations and have been involved in the National Dental Examining Board of Canada for over 25 years.
Over the years, I have had many interests outside of my professional interests as well. I am an avid sports fan (Oiler Season Seat holder for 42 years) and have followed and participated in many sports over the years. I am an avid reader, consider gardening, travel, movies, automobiles and politics among my many hobbies. Over most of my adult life, I have made an effort to be keenly aware of political developments around the world, but most especially in Canada with particular focus on Alberta. I have two married daughters along with a son with a significant other in his life. I also have three grandchildren three years of age or younger. I am married to Toni Janke, my greatest source of support and wisdom.
Because of my family, I realized that it was time to become involved in a meaningful way in the political process and to try to help out in any way, in order to make a difference in the lives not only of my family, but in the lives of all Albertans. I believe that not only the only way forward, but the best way forward, is for Alberta to plot its own course, be in control of its own destiny. The time is over for Alberta to exist under the crushing weight of federalism, where, in 1905, in the House of Commons of Canada, it was officially established, that western Canada, in particular Alberta, would be a “drawer of water and a hewer of wood” to serve at the pleasure of Central Canada. Sadly, that remains as true today as it was then, over 100 years ago.
Finally, I truly believe that Alberta can be better off as a sovereign nation. We are blessed with an abundance of riches that all other regions of the world can only dream of. We have some of the hardest working, self-reliant, creative, and entrepreneurial people anywhere. Our population is the youngest and best educated in Canada. We have some of the best agricultural land farmed by some of the hardest working and most productive farmers anywhere in the world. We have a vibrant tourism industry, a very viable forestry industry, a significant mining industry, one of the largest petrochemical industries in the world, as well as an increasingly relevant IT industry. And yes, we have the most ethical, environmentally responsible and successful oil and gas industry sitting on the worlds third largest reserve of oil and natural gas on planet earth. With this abundance of riches, we just need to allow Albertans to live in freedom to develop further these industries, free from the heavy yoke of federalism and the demands of supporting this vast country of Canada while receiving nothing in return that we haven’t first contributed to the confederation. I believe that Albertan just want to live in freedom and provide for their families and are willing to do so without asking for help from anyone, if only they are given a fair opportunity.
Many will say this course of action is too risky…that it can’t be done. I choose to say we CAN do this and we MUST. The risk lies not in independence, but rather in the status quo. We can do this together.

DENNIS L MODRY
BSc, MD, MSc, FRCS©, FACCP, FACS
A native of Camrose, Alberta, Dr. Modry received his B.Sc. and M. D. Degrees from the University of Alberta, and his MSc. Degree and training in General Surgery and Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery at McGill university with separate certifications for each by examination from Quebec, Canada and United States Licensing authorities. Following 3 more years of training in transplantation immunology, heart and lung transplantation and high-risk cardiovascular surgery at Stanford University Medical Center, Dr. Modry joined the medical staff at the University of Alberta in March 1984. In his position as Clinical Associate Professor in the Divisions of Cardiovascular Surgery and Critical Care Medicine, Dr. Modry served as the Director of both the Heart and Lung Transplantation Program and Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit from May 1984 until January 2007. And after 30 years of practice Dr. Modry retired Dec 31, 2015.
Dr. Modry implemented Western Canada’s first heart and lung transplantation program, and performed the first heart transplant in July 1985, the first combined transplant of the heart with both lungs in August 1986, the first single lung transplant in December 1989 and the first double lung transplant in November 1990. The success of the heart and lung transplant program, which grew to be the largest and most successful in Canada and one of the largest programs in North America, set the stage for the implementation of the very successful liver transplantation program, which facilitated the subsequent development of the renowned islet cell transplantation program.
Dr. Modry was awarded numerous awards starting with a Molson Hockey Scholarship to attend the University of Alberta in 1967. Subsequently, he received several travelling fellowships, the Vanier Award for the Outstanding Young Canadian in 1985; the ’Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada in recognition of significant contributions to compatriots, community and to Canada’ in January 1993; and the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal for the Province of Alberta ‘in recognition of significant contributions to their fellow citizens, their community, and to Canada’ in February 2003. In 2001 Dr. Modry was named a Paul Harris Fellow by the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. And in September 2005 Dr. Modry received ‘The Alberta Centennial Medal’, in recognition of outstanding service to the people and the Province of Alberta.
While in practice, Dr. Modry served on numerous hospital committees and successive Alberta Conservative Government’s Finance Committees. He has also been a Director of several public companies, and a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation. From 1984 until his retirement in December 2015, Dr. Modry also served as the President of the Alberta Medical Association Section of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery. Dr. Modry’s academic interests pertained to outcome measures of various therapeutic strategies in heart and lung transplantation and cardiac surgery aimed at eliminating morbidity and mortality.
Dr. Modry’s conservative political interests began in high school but were sharpened by the National Energy Policy and the cost inefficiency of the Canadian Health Care System. Notwithstanding his involvement with the Provincial Government Finance Committee during the reigns of Premiers’ Lougheed, Getty, Kline and Stelmach, Dr. Modry embarked on a mission to assist the provincial government in dealing with the dysfunctional relationship between Alberta with Ottawa. In 2003, in preparation for Alberta’s Centennial in 2005, Dr. Modry prepared a treatise for Premier Kline and Caucus entitled “Alberta at the Crossroads; Status Quo, Re-Federation, Autonomy”, contributed by constitutional lawyers, numerous prominent businesspeople, academics and senior politicians. The document clearly articulated both the irritants imposed on Alberta by Ottawa, not the least of which was and still is the economic pillaging, but also detailed the only algorithm to solve the problem of Alberta’s colonial subservience to Ottawa within Confederation and under the Canadian Constitution.
After 115 years in which no Alberta Provincial Government or Canadian Federal Government ever protected Alberta’s interests or future prosperity, Dr. Modry concluded that the only logical path forward for Alberta was freedom from the tyranny and oppression of Alberta’s interests by Ottawa. Presently, Dr. Modry serves as the VP of Policy and Governance for the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta.
I am pleased to announce I have been accepted to run in the election of the Board of Governors/Directors for the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta.
I was born and raised in Red Deer, Alberta. When I was a teenager I joined the Métis Nation of Alberta after learning that my great grandfather, on my mothers side, was the Chief of the Crow Nation in the Northern United States. Since grade 10, during Social Studies, I have known that I am a Regionalist and that I only cared about Albertas interests.
After I graduated High School I took an interest in Emergency Medical Services and have served Albertans as a Paramedic since 2008. I became an Advanced Care Paramedic in 2016. When I went back to College to try and pursue a bachelors degree in science, Political Science was one of my options. We debated often in Political Science and I have always been right of the new center with my views. As such I am opposed to big government, and believe that people need to have inalienable rights. I would like to have a Constitutional Republic where the rights of the individual come before the interests of any future elected government and/or representative.
I became a hard core Alberta Separatist the day Justin Trudeau was elected as our Prime Minister. It is alarming to see the erosion of our rights and freedoms, with the legislation that is being passed by the Liberal government. I knew it was time to take a stand. I was outraged to see a repeat of history in which Alberta was being politically and economically oppressed by Ottawa. Moving forward, I believe that the only way we can bring back our economic prosperity and social stability is through our independence as a new nation.
When I became aware of Wexit Alberta, I joined and volunteered to help in their endeavors to create an Independence Party. Due to the hard work of the Wexit team and the Freedom Conservative Party they formed the registered party, Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta (WIPA). I have now been volunteering my time with WIPA, and helping WIPA set up Constituency Associations while working full time as a Paramedic.
It would be a great honor to serve Albertans by being one of the 20 people elected to the Board of Governors/Directors for WIPA, and help further shape the party for the people, by the people. I would appreciate your vote at the AGM scheduled for January 23, 2021. The deadline to register for the AGM is January 17th, it is a $50 donation to participate at the AGM to elect our new Board of Governors/Directors
Thank-you for your time and consideration.

Born and raised in Northern Alberta, I have never lived anywhere but Alberta. This is home and I would not have it any other way.
Today, we find ourselves in a politically motivated and induced recession/depression through no fault of our own. Our government structure has grown to become such a behemoth, all sense of reality has been lost in the halls of the Legislature. While politicians and bureaucrats enjoy job security, many Albertans have been forced to hand in the keys to everything they worked for. As it stands, there is no end in sight. This is not right and it is time to do things differently.
Change can be uncomfortable, even scary, but that does not mean we do nothing. We are Albertans. Doing nothing is not an option. It never has been. We work hard to get the job done and aren’t afraid to take calculated risks along the way. As a small business owner, I appreciate the tenacity and critical thinking needed when taking on new ventures. Seeing the big picture and how the pieces of the puzzle will fit together is paramount. I also appreciate it takes the right people with the right skill sets in the right positions to get the job done.
The Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta is all about doing politics differently. Having never been involved in politics before, it is very liberating to come into this absent of previous ideologies. However, what I do understand and know very well is the political structure, as it is designed today, serves no benefit to regular Albertans like you and I. The time to change that is long past due. Let’s work together and make it happen.
Hi Everyone 🙂
I threw my hat in to run for a Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta executive board position.
A multi ticketed heavy industrial tradesman, I have been on many a construction site throughout the west, building and maintaining power plants, refineries, petrochemical facilities and pulp mills for 30 years. I have also been involved in Quality Control and “specialty industrial services” for the last decade or so.
I have owned, or been part owner of a couple businesses in my time as well (a restaurant for 6 years and an arborist service for 10 yrs).
A born n bred Albertan (3rd generation), I have made my home on an acreage within the riding of Devon/Drayton Valley since ’98.
I have a deep love of this province and have come to be truly disappointed in the successive federal governments of a country that I formerly had great pride in.
Ottawa has been pillaging the wonderful, hard working people of Alberta for far too long ($650 billion+ since 1957), and it MUST come to a grinding halt asap!!
Instead of choosing to be an armchair critic of this situation, I decided to try and actually DO something about it.
With a little coaxing, I entered the world of politics in November of 2018.
I ran for MLA in Edmonton Castledowns in the last provincial election, finishing 4th in that very diverse riding behind the incumbent NDP, the UCP candidate and Stephen Mandel’s AB Party candidate (I beat the Liberal candidate!!😉).
During the election, I took it upon myself to organize a group comprised of all our MLA’s running in Edmonton and the surrounding areas north of the river (17 of them!!). Being that all these candidates had very limited political experience (including myself), it was very taxing to say the least, but I seemed to excel at it.
Based on my involvement in the role of leading as the “captain” of that Northside Group, when the election was over, I decided that “Constituency Association Director” would probably be very much in my wheelhouse… and lo and behold, it was!
I very much enjoyed my work as CA Director of the AIP and all it involved. I must’ve put 10 to 15 thousand km’s on my vehicle travelling all over this province meeting with people interested in forming constituency associations within their respective ridings.
I met many interesting people from all walks of life in our great province and would do it again in a heartbeat.
After joining Wexit Alberta, I continued criss-crossing both this province, as well as Saskatchewan, spreading the secessionist word.
I was approached to organize a push towards official provincial party status for Wexit Alberta. In order to achieve the registration, Elections Alberta requires 8413 signatures from rank n file Albertans.
I personally knocked on approximately 20,000 doors, and after a few months of long days, and many miles, we, as a group hit approximately 6000 or so signatures.
Then Corona happened…
Needless to say, we had to refrain from knocking on any more doors.
Thankfully, within that time frame, we also started talking to the FCP (Freedom Conservative Party) about a possible merger.
As we all know, that amalgamation came to fruition, and The Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta was born.
I have continued fighting the good fight for WIPA from the sidelines, but I think it’s time for me to jump back in the game to help clear a path to the goal line!!
It has been an interesting journey, filled with people that I have come to admire very much.
I would be honoured to sit on the board, and very much embrace the opportunity to further the mandate of Alberta Independence.

Corey is a problem solver, a builder, a visionary, and an inventor. He understands that through co-creation we can, and have achieved great feats of accomplishment throughout Alberta. It is the people who put in their time and energy, who have created, and achieved these milestones, not the governing bodies. Corey wants to allow the people to reap the rewards of their hard labor, instead of continuing to go unheard and under-appreciated. With some of the most brilliant minds, resources, diversity of parks and rivers, there’s so much potential with the right initiatives. Allow me to help lead the change you want to see.
My name is Jeevan Mangat. I am seeking to be elected as Member at Large for the Alberta Independent Party Board of Directors.
I have grown up in Calgary, immigrating from Kenya with my parents and siblings. I graduated from Junior and Senior High School in Calgary. I have an Engineering Degree from UofC,. The National Energy Program forced me to leave Alberta and find employment in Toronto, where I spend four years. After returning to Calgary in 1988, my wife Nina and I entered the restaurant business. This was the best education I received. We have two boys, Gurvir and Manraj.
Currently I am employed as a commercial property manager. I have achieved a Certified Property Manager and Certified Leasing Officer Certificates.
My volunteer duties have included Kids Cancer Care Foundation, Children’s Wish Foundation, Director with Third Academy School (school for special needs children), and Chairman of the Board in 2017.
Political career has included being candidate for the Wildrose Party in 2012 (lost by 144 votes to PC incumbent) and 2015, for the riding of Calgary Fort. In 2018, I was one of the nominees for the riding of Calgary Peigan.
Three Pillars for Independence:
Abolish Supply Management – there is no need to protect Dairy Farmers of Ont and Quebec. These farmers are multi-millionaires who have thrived because Canadians have paid higher prices for dairy products. Australia and New Zealand have removed supply management for their dairy industry, and today these farms thrive Our democracy was constructed on free enterprise not socialism,
Bilingualism – No policy infuriates me more than our Official Language Act. Through Bilingualism, Quebecois control English Canada. Province of Quebec has passed several anti-English laws, that makes French the official language in Quebec. Bilingual Canadians make up; 18% of Canada’s population, and only 12% can pass the language test. Outside Quebec slightly more than 1% of Adults are Bilingual. We need to stop this ridiculous policy.
Where is Simon Marcil – from National Post. This is how Quebecois control English Canada.
It has been a year since BQ MP Simon spoke in Parliament, sat on a committee, or even voted. He has been on medical leave from work, that should have been disclosed to voters, political experts say. Not uttered a word since Dec 9, 2019. He receives his full MP salary of $182,600, as well as expenses, has been on medical leave. Doctor’s note presented to Bloc Whip he required one month of medical leave. The MP then provided a note every month extending his leave. None of this information was disclosed o media or the public until National Post questioned the party about MP’s disappearance. Mike Medeiros a Canadian electoral politics expert decision not to disclose is very, very. strange. Part of MP’s obligation is to be direct about their situation. The medical leave has not prevented Simon from claiming $14,150 from Jan 1-Sept 2020 for his secondary residence. Four undisclosed BQ MPs state Simon has no interest in parliamentary procedures and is very lazy. I guess he only prefers the exorbitant salary.
Just think if this was a Conservative MP – there would have been an uproar in the House and the Media. English MPs are fearful of criticizing this situation, as they may seem to be insensitive to Quebec MPs. They wish to separate, why be sensitive. English Canadians are paying majority of his expenses. I am sick and tired of being fearful of Quebec – time to separate. Erin O’Toole should have been all over this, but he is fearful of loosing votes in Quebec – a game Quebec plays very well. Diane Francis said at a Manning Conference, unless Laurentian Elites are eliminated, English Canada will be beholden to Quebec.
Transfer Payments – Do I need to say more. The end result of this program is that provinces that are unproductive remain in this situation. You only have to examine Maritimes, Quebec, Manitoba, and until recently Saskatchewan. Albertans are the hardest working people in Canada. Annual surveys show we are always first or second when it comes working hours.
My goal is to promote Wildrose Independence Party, and speak about the above mentioned policies that penalizes Albertans for being productive citizens. Unfortunately, these policies can never be abolished. The Constitution amending formula requires the change be passed in the House of Commons, the Senate and then at least two-thirds of the provincial legislative assemblies representing at least 50 per cent of the provinces’ total population. In essence, it’s virtually impossible to amend the Constitution.
Therefore our choice is to achieve Independence, and I seek your support to be Member at Large for Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta.
Hi my name is Paul Gullackson. I have lived in Cold Lake, Alberta for over 65 years. I was in business as a building contractor, building supply and plumbing and heating shop owner for 26 years. Having employed many people over that time I look at politics with a business mind and I don’t like what I see. When you run a business poorly it fails but when politicians, most of whom have no business experience, run the government poorly they usually get promoted or blame someone else for their mistakes. Federal, provincial and municipal governments are nothing more than large businesses and should be run as such. Especially when you are spending other peoples’ money
In 1995 I sold out (I needed a change) and became a home inspector, a good fit. At that time the industry was new in Alberta. I soon became President of the Alberta chapter of CAHPI (Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors) consisting of approximately 250 inspectors. The industry was unregulated and chaotic. I worked with the Alberta Government for 5 years drafting regulation for this new industry. 36 all day meetings with Service Alberta at the Commerce Building in Edmonton finally culminated in legislation to protect home buyers. I got a real taste of Alberta politics in those 5 years. I worked with 5 different ministers and many bureaucrats and it was one of the most interesting times of my life and I enjoyed it immensely.
Throughout my career I have also :
- taught house building for Lakeland College in Cold Lake for individuals wanting to be their own contractor.
- Created course material and taught Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake maintenance department general construction and defect recognition
- Called as an expert witness in court cases dealing with construction lawsuits
- Was employed as a mediator several times to mediate disputes between contractors and their clients wanting to sue each other. These were settled out of court through my mediation
- Sat on the Alberta Building Code board of Directors representing the Alberta Home Inspection Industry
- I was invited to represent Alberta in Ottawa for a 5 day conference of reviewing the national building code. The building code is reviewed every 5 years.
I am now 70 years old and semi-retired. I love the province of Alberta and its people. I have 2 boys and a girl and many grandchildren and I am very concerned about their future given the economic rape of our province by Ottawa and Quebec. God willing I have 15 good years left in me and I will work hard to turn Alberta into what it should be – an economic powerhouse – if run by Albertans. An independent Alberta is our only answer.

“All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again”
I am a second generation Alberta oil patch professional. Both my father and I had great careers as engineers and in oil company management. My father was a proponent of Canadian electoral reform and invested countless hours helping many different political groups, trying to affect change since the original Reform Party started in 1987. I have been witness to all of the federal abuses of power dating back to the NEP. I have also been witness to nearly 40 years of failure of the reform movement. They haven’t changed anything. In fact today, Alberta’s problems with the federal government are far worse than they have ever been. My father passed away in 2013 and I know he would be appalled with our countries shift left. He was all about “The West Wants In”. I have evolved to believe “The West Wants Out”. Independence is the only way.
I was fortunate enough to be able to retire from my oil industry career in 2016. In 1989 I started my professional engineering career working with oilfield service companies in Canada, Russia and South America. I spent 3 years in Russia starting in 1993, shortly after the collapse of the USSR. Although it was after the collapse, I was able to experience a lot of what living in a communist country was all about. Life for the average person there was extremely difficult. Most were very poor. The system there was very corrupt and the only way out of poverty was through connection to higher levels of government. Poverty, corruption and crime were pervasive. After my international work, I focused primarily on reservoir engineering.
The last 15 years of my career were spent with Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNQ) as a business unit manager. I was responsible for a capital budget of about $300 million per year.
I provided business direction to about 600 employees and contractors. Over that time I identified and successfully executed $1.7 billion in corporate and property acquisitions and was very successful at growing my business units. I demonstrated a high degree of success in providing leadership in an organization that was able to grow very quickly. I learned very specifically how important working with teams can be to success. I feel my corporate experience would be of significant value to WIPA as I see much growth in its future.
After my retirement in 2016, I returned to the University of Calgary and completed the 2-year Visual Design certificate. Although this was a significant departure from oil industry professional work, it was an area of interest I have been wanting to pursue. It has helped me tremendously with my interest in painting and photography. For me, I think it has been valuable to exercise the right side of my brain a little more.
In 2019 I joined the Board of Directors of the Okanagan Antique and Classic Boat Society. I have been producing their quarterly newsletter. Also, I have produced several antique boating photo essay style articles that were picked up by a few international publications. I am hoping to see my latest piece be published in a glossy magazine later this month.
Also in 2019, I got involved with the creation of a separation activist group. We email communicated with an ever-growing group of concerned people. Through others forwarding our messages, I estimate our reach was about 1000 people. During the time I spent working with the group I produced 50 articles discussing a variety of subjects related to Alberta’s concerns. One of my most recent articles was a research article on “The Great Reset”. Given the information I found provided by the World Economic Forum and the UN, “The Great Reset” is very specifically focused on the creation of totalitarian governments that will execute UN Agenda 2030 and universal energy poverty. Justin Trudeau’s public commitment to Canada’s participation in “The Great Reset” should be greatly concerning to all Canadians but especially so for Albertans. Alberta has been the primary focus of our federal government’s increasingly punishing green policies.
I don’t agree with totalitarian governments. I don’t agree that climate change is an existential problem. I don’t agree that Covid19 lockdowns are warranted. I don’t agree that Covid19 is the opportunity to implement “ The Great Reset”. I don’t agree with WEF’s assertion that we “will own nothing and be happy”. I am very motivated to do whatever I can to protect Alberta from the dark curtain is that descending upon us. Separation from Canada is the only defense. I want to see Alberta live up to its potential and be the wealthiest country in the world. Please select me as a Regional Director for Alberta South and let me do all I can to help WIPA produce a provincial government that can hold a “Referendum on Independence”.
Serving with the Canadian Airborne Regiment was no easy task, but settling for easy just is not Kelly Lorencz’s style. In fact, challenges are exactly what fuel his motivation. Whether it was earning his jump wings or involvement in missions overseas, Kelly truly takes commitment to the next level. And, you can bet this perpetual tenacity spans every area of his life. Whether it is out on the hockey rink, building a house or as a devoted father, Kelly consistently surpasses the goals he sets for himself.
Kelly Lorencz grew up here in Alberta, and credits a great deal of his drive to his parents and the long hours they put into their professions. While many of his friends were out playing, Kelly was forging a work ethic that was head and shoulders above the norm.
After honorably serving in the military, Kelly decided to venture out into other areas and take his aspirations even higher. Kelly has worked for the Correctional Service of Canada experiencing all levels of security from Maximum down to minimum security. While working with the Correctional Service of Canada, Kelly was able to achieve many qualifications and earned the respected Crisis Negotiator position.
Kelly does not settle when it comes to providing people with the highest standard of service possible. He works tirelessly to ensure he exceeds the expectations of those he represents on every level. Kelly is committed to going above and beyond to help those around him reach their goals. Whether it is using his sharp negotiation skills or providing those he represents with the information they need to make a smart decision, he does everything in his power to make this a reality.
Kelly currently sits on the Wildrose Independence Party Board and works as a member of the communications committee. Kelly ran as a candidate in the 2019 Federal election with the People’s Party of Canada. Kelly was also the coauthor of the PPC Platform policy on Veterans.
Good evening WIPA members. My name is Mitch and I am running for the position of Regional Director – North.
I was born in Rimbey and grew up in Red Deer. I graduated from York University with a degree in Political Science and am currently working as an Administrator at the MD of Smoky River No.130 in Falher, AB I am also keeping busy by completing a certificate in Local Authority Administration (UofA) and a certificate in Agronomy (Olds College) with the intention of working more directly with agricultural services.
I am a strong advocate for an independent Alberta and believe that it can be accomplished through the mandate of the WIPA. During my studies I became interested in the history of prairie populist movements in the United States and Western Canada. looking at our history, there is a clear legacy of exploitation at the hands of the federal government; The current frustrations experienced by Albertans are not an anomaly in the otherwise rosy relations between Edmonton and Ottawa – they are a result of the historical and systemic apathy towards the wellbeing of western Canadians. Alberta has a legacy of unexpectedly electing upstart political parties who offer radical change. Now more than ever the WIPA has an opportunity of delivering this meaningful change to Albertans.
As a result of working for the municipality, I have experience writing policy and bylaws and participating in the operation of various local boards and committees. As a member of a rural agricultural community, I also have an understanding of what rural Albertans expect from their elected leaders and political parties.
In my free time I enjoy being outdoors camping, hunting and fishing. I also enjoy playing music and reading about history and politics.
I hope to see everyone at the AGM,
Candidate for Regional Director – North
My name is Zuzana Janosova̶̶̶̶–den Boer. I know firsthand the price of freedom, because I was born and raised in Czechoslovakia, during the communist regime that lasted 4 decades, from 1948 to 1989. When I moved to Canada 23 years ago, I never expected to deal again with socialism or politics. Well, here we are, and here I am — now I’m dealing with both. For me, in many ways, this is déja vu.
Everything changed in May 2015, when the NDP won the provincial election and formed government. My awareness rose when, for the first time in Alberta, I started to hear again words and phrases used by the communists in Czechoslovakia in their propaganda. One again, I witnessed communist tactics to subvert society. I instantly realized that we are in a psychological war, in which the public is being systematically brainwashed by government and a complicit mainstream media, who distort reality with each drop of their poisonous lies — saturation propaganda, at full speed.
My husband suggested I write an article on propaganda and KGB methods for communist takeover. I did lots of research, had to go back in my memory to a time when the communist party of Czechoslovakia was still ruling our country. Some memories were painful. It took me 18 months to complete my essay, but on January 3rd 2019, it was published online by Spencer Fernando: “I survived communism- Are you ready for your turn?”
During the summer of 2019, I was invited to participate in the Wexit movement. I thus had the opportunity to make speeches during rallies in Red Deer, Edmonton and Calgary, to help raise awareness by explaining to Albertans what is happening to our province. Some people ask me when I became a separatist. It happened on October 21st, 2019 around 9.pm, when I saw the result of the federal election. I realized then that socialists have achieved critical mass in Eastern Canada, that our province is under economic attack from other provinces, and that our wealth, freedom, and fundamental values are being stolen.
My political journey began in February 2020. I left Wexit and was accepted by the board of directors of the new Freedom Conservative Party. When FCP and Wexit merged to form the Wildrose Independence Party, I joined the communication and social media committee, participating in discussions, reviews of our policies, bylaws, drafting mission statements, vision statements, everything needed to create a new political party. At the end of October 2020, I resigned from the communication and social media committee in order to help establish Constituency Associations (CA’s) in Calgary, accepting the position of Regional Director for Calgary.
During my meetings, I have met many wonderful people: Albertans, who are struggling to find a job or pay their bills. We have had many discussions on different topics, but one concern was very common: Are we losing our freedom? Yes, unfortunately we are. I’m absolutely certain that Canada is marching toward a totalitarian state. We have only 2 choices: to allow ourselves to be sucked into the black hole of communism, to become imprisoned and enslaved, or not. Albertans have repeatedly demonstrated their generosity and patriotism to Canada, but our sacrifices have been neither reciprocated nor even recognized. When we needed help, we received only spite, contempt and mockery in return. It’s time for Albertans to stand for themselves, to put our families and province first.
I want to focus on building a strong membership foundation in Calgary, so I’ve decided to run again for the position of Regional Director for Calgary. I hope I will have the opportunity to meet many of you in the coming weeks and months.

I live with my wife, four kids and small flock of chickens on a piece of land east of Ardrossan. I am a Professional Biologist and Planner who has worked in support of Alberta industry across the province, from Bindloss to Fort Chipewyan to La Crete and Peace River. Currently I manage the environmental scope on a federally regulated project with 15 construction sites from Edmonton to Hope BC.
I have been active with the movement to put Alberta first since the last election when I ran to be an MLA under the Freedom Conservative banner. Since then I have worked hard for the party as the FCP Shadow Critic for Environment and Agriculture and an elected member of the Board of Governors. I supported the merger of the FCP with Wexit and supported the fledgling party on the Strategic Planning and the Policy & Governance committees. Since the formation of the Wildrose Independence Party my activity has been focused primarily on setting up CAs, not only as Director for the Central Region but also assisting the other Directors as the chair for the party’s CA Development committee.

My name is Rick Northey and I am the current President of the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta. I was born in Peterborough Ontario but have lived half my life in Alberta. I have experienced the both the boom times and the financial hardships that can follow.
My political involvement started at the University of Windsor when I joined the Reform party. In hindsight, I suppose, it only made sense to move to Calgary.
I was active for several years as a volunteer with the old Wildrose party. I have worked on many election campaigns filling almost every possible position at one time or another. I have also been the President of Wildrose and UCP constituency associations so I know the hard and unglamorous work that goes on behind the scenes of political parties.
During this last year, I was the Chair of the Committee which wrote our current interim Constitution and I helped negotiate the last phase of the FCP/Wexit merger. I have tried to adapt and learn from the mistakes of both Wildrose and the UCP, developing policies and procedures based on past successes and failures. Several months of work is now being submitted for Member’s approval to be the broad framework of the next phase of Wildrose.
I recently published an article where I argued the necessity of Alberta Independence. I signed my name to it and have already been denounced by some old friends as a traitor to their idea of Canada. To this, I can only say, change never happens without conflict and the idea of change always scares some but what we have now is unacceptable.
I am committed to making change happen and I think my experience and knowledge will help us build a party which can win an election while staying true to our principles. If we have principle without power, we are merely a debate club. If we have power without principle, we are Jason Kenney. And if our principles are misguided, then we are the NDP. So, it’s important we get this right.
I ask for you vote and your support so I can serve you on the Wildrose board for another year, thank you.
Hello my name is Nadine Wellwood and it has been a pleasure to serve on the interim Board for the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta. I purposefully got actively involved politically in 2019 when I ran as the Candidate for the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) for the riding of Banff-Airdrie.
The current state of affairs of our political parties is something to be desired and there is a true need for reform that needs to take place. Career politicians are serving their own interests above those of the constituents that they are there to serve. Politicians today have lost touch with the needs of the people they are supposed to serve and the real purpose of Government.
Alberta finds itself in a very unique situation, one that is very different from many of the other Provinces in Canada, one that will require strong leadership and people with courage to stand up and fairly voice our needs and concerns. It will require motivated individuals who can present creative ideas, think critically and present real solutions to the many challenges we face.
I am a strong advocate of freedom of speech as it is the foundation of a free and fair society. The need for ideas to be honestly and openly debated and discussed in the hopes that the best solutions are acted upon is especially critical today.
The majority of my working career has been from the perspective of a small business owner and entrepreneur. I have owned an Independent Investment Firm, An Aerospace & Defence Company that focused on a Modelling & Simulation and Human Factors Engineering, I have worked for the Dept of National Defence in Recreation & Administration, and worked as an Alternative Health Professional.
I hold a University Degree, Bachelor of Science – Kinesiology, An Alternative Health Diploma, I hold the designation of Chartered Investment Manager (CIM) and Qualified Associate Financial Planner (QAFP). I am a mother, a wife, and an avid reader who loves non-fiction topics related to economics, health and history. I love animals and the outdoors. I grew up hunting and fishing with my dad, playing in the garden, and spent much time riding snowmobiles and motorcycles.
I believe Alberta can truly be a model for the rest of the world. This Province has great talent and an abundance of natural resources, we simply need a strong Government that can make the most of the opportunities that lie before us. I want nothing more than to see Alberta and the wonderful people that live here become the most prosperous and most free people in the world.
My primary motivation for remaining involved has been and continues to be my 9 year old daughter. My daughter and her friends – you, your children and grandchildren deserve to grow up in a Province that is free and prosperous – a Province that gives every one of its residents an opportunity to pursue their dreams.
I am pleased to announce that I am running for a position on the Central Alberta Board of Governors.
I am a 5th generation born and raised Albertian who has been blessed with a beautiful family of 5 and a home in Beuamont. I was raised in the country on a cattle farm, before I tried my hand at various industries in the private sector. I finally settled on the electrical trade as my base perfession but that wasnt until I went through road construction, trucking, residential construction, service rigs, serveying, and industrial construction. I believe these experiences have given me a clear picture as to what matters to the people of Alberta.
I have seen first hand the affects the federal government has had on the province of Alberta with absolutly no regaurd for us the people of Alberta. The federal government does everything they can to prevent Alberta from further developing our industries and exporting our products. There is no future for Alberta in confederatioin, and the only path to prosperity for future generations is independence.
Albeta can be a power house on the international, economec, amd resourse stages. All that is required is for the fine people of Alberta to stand up and be counted, to put forth members in a political party such as WIPA to implement the will of the people. If im so honoured to be electided to this position you can count on me to always put the best intrests of a strong and free Alberta first.
