Rachel Notley's plan for FCSS will reinvest funding for strong and vibrant communities

For Immediate Release - April 30, 2015
EDMONTON-Today, Rachel Notley announced that an NDP government will reinvest in Alberta's cities and growing communities through Family and Community Support Services (FCSS), which supports after school programs for kids, child development programs, and counseling for individuals and families.
"Alberta's children and families deserve the opportunity to build and strengthen their communities," said Notley. "FCSS is based on the values of inclusion, integrity, and independence-Alberta's NDP shares those values. That's why an Alberta NDP government will reinvest in FCSS."
Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) funding has remained stagnant for the past four years under the PC government. In 2015, the Prentice plan did not invest any new funding in FCSS despite advocacy by volunteer organizations concerned about a lack of resources to support Alberta's growing cities and communities.
Today, Notley announced that an Alberta NDP government will maintain and increase funding for FCSS by investing an additional $25 million dollars annually to maintain and strengthen services in a growing Alberta. The Alberta NDP plan will allow municipalities and Métis settlements to decide how best to use FCSS funding to strengthen community services.
"Prentice and his team have got it all wrong for our growing cities and communities," said Notley. "At a time when our civic and community leaders are looking for new partnerships, the Prentice plan sends the wrong message-the PCs aren't listening."
"Now, more than ever, Alberta needs a new government that recognizes the value of community. By reinvesting in FCSS, we intend to make sure our communities know they're supported."
Family and Community Support Services
Rachel Notley’s NDP will reinvest in FCSS and help strengthen our growing communities.
Rachel Notley’s plan for FCSS:
  • Invest $25 million dollars in new funding for FCSS to keep up with Alberta’s growing cities and communities.
  • Allocate FCSS funding directly to municipalities and Métis Settlements.
  • Allow municipalities and Métis settlements to decide how FCSS funds will be spent.
What is FCSS?
  • Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) supports community needs and development through cost-effective and locally-based initiatives.
  • Vital community services provided through FCSS include: parent-child development, temporary parental relief, support services for children,  and youth education and information programs.
The Prentice plan for FCSS:

  • In budget 2015, FCSS funding remained stagnant.
  • Over the past four years, the PCs have not invested any additional funding for FCSS.

"I think this is just the beginning, I think they're going to go hard against the NDP," he said.
Reminding voters about the party's cousins in Ottawa could be an effective strategy, Bratt says.
"I think that especially if they bring in the federal party and Thomas Mulcair that they can make real grounds against the NDP, maybe not in Edmonton, but I think they may be conceding large parts of Edmonton and are really worried now about fortress Calgary."

Alberta election: Tories ramp up attacks on rival parties

Analyst Duane Bratt says to expect more PC attacks to quell NDP momentum

With the provincial election less than a week away, the Progressive Conservatives appear to be taking a sharper tone in attacking their rivals.
The PCs say the NDP would turn its back on the energy industry by promising a review of royalties paid by oil and gas companies.
Mount Royal University policy studies professor Duane Bratt says the PCs are taking aim at the NDP because the party appears to be gaining traction -- even in Calgary, where leader Rachel Notley says she'll be campaigning through Friday.
"I think this is just the beginning, I think they're going to go hard against the NDP," he said.
Reminding voters about the party's cousins in Ottawa could be an effective strategy, Bratt says.
"I think that especially if they bring in the federal party and Thomas Mulcair that they can make real grounds against the NDP, maybe not in Edmonton, but I think they may be conceding large parts of Edmonton and are really worried now about fortress Calgary."

Old affiliations questioned

The Tories are also taking aim at the Wildrose candidate in Calgary-Bow, drawing attention to Trevor Grover's 2006 federal run as a candidate for the Canadian Action Party.
In a written release, the Tories describe CAP as "a party that proposes bizarre monetary policy and tearing up free trade agreements."
"Why did Trevor Grover campaign on aboriginals being segregated into their own cities? Why did he campaign on further scientific study on vaccines? Does he still believe in these fringe policies?"
Wildrose leader Brian Jean was asked if he thinks the Tory attacks will continue through the campaign.
"We are the only party that has been consistent in our messaging and in our priorities since the start of this campaign and before," he said.
"We have seen a PC government that has changed strategies and their budget even though they promised to campaign on that budget, we have seen them break promises throughout this election."
NDP Leader Rachel Notley says she will not run a negative attack-based campaign.
In 2012, the Tories won 20 of Calgary's 25 seats. Bratt says they need to win at least that many to hang on to a majority this time.
"If you're being swept out of much of Edmonton, if you're being swept out of half of rural Alberta, you can't just win a draw, you have to do very well in Calgary, you have to do more than just 15, 16 seats — you've got to be in the 20- to 22-seat calibre," he said.
